Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of California Girls comes an all new original Blackberry Island novel told with Susan Mallery's trademark humor and charm. Sisters by Choice is a heartfelt tale of love, family and the friendships that see us through.
Cousins by chance, sisters by choice...
After her cat toy empire goes up in flames, Sophie Lane returns to Blackberry Island, determined to rebuild. Until small-town life reveals a big problem: she can't grow unless she learns to let go. If Sophie relaxes her grip even a little, she might lose everything. Or she might finally be free to reach for the happiness and love that have eluded her for so long.
Kristine has become defined by her relationship to others. She's a wife, a mom. As much as she adores her husband and sons, she wants something for herself—a sweet little bakery just off the waterfront. She knew changing the rules wouldn't be easy, but she never imagined she might have to choose between her marriage and her dreams.
Like the mainland on the horizon, Heather's goals seem beyond her grasp. Every time she manages to save for college, her mother has another crisis. Can she break free, or will she be trapped in this tiny life forever?

Want more of Heather's story? Don't miss The Happiness Plan, a new novel coming from #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery where three women experience hope, heartache, and the power of friendship as they search for true happiness!

        In this poignant small-town charmer, Mallery (The Summer of Sunshine and Margot) beautifully illustrates the power of female friendship and the importance of reaching for one’s dreams. After the Los Angeles office of Sophie Lane’s cat products company goes up in flames, she moves her small business back home to Blackberry Island, Wash., where her cousins, Kristine and Amber, also live. Kristine, a stay-at-home mom of three sons, dreams of expanding her weekend business of selling cookies into a full-scale bakery but her husband disapproves. Amber’s 20-year-old daughter, Heather, nurses ambitions of leaving for business school, but is trapped on the island by her codependent mom who relies on Heather for emotional and financial support. Mallery alternates perspective between Sophie, Kristine, and Heather as each woman works to balance her familial and romantic relationships with her career goals. Surrounded by a first-rate cast of supporting characters—most notably Dugan, a hunky tai chi instructor with a secret, who falls for Sophie—Mallery’s women are achingly real. This irresistible, heartfelt story will appeal to romance readers and women’s fiction fans alike. Agent: Annelise Robey, Jane Rotrosen Agency.

      • content: Narrator Tanya Eby quickly has listeners caught up in the lives of three cousins on Blackberry Island, off the coast of Washington. Sophie has to relocate her cat toy company back home after a fire. Kristine wants to open a bakery despite her husband's protests. And 20-year-old Heather longs to escape from her mother, Amber. Eby gives each of the women a distinctive voice, especially Amber, who is overbearing and whiny. Amber feels entitled, and Eby uses a strident tone for her. Eby ably expresses Sophie's frustration as she tries to be less controlling and tries to learn to trust her employees. Eby also has listeners feeling Heather's despair in trying to deal with her mother. Listeners will enjoy the journey that each character takes to get to her happy ending.
