A MILLION LITTLE THINGS brings us back to Mischief Bay,
California with Susan Mallery's third book in this series.
We first met Pam Eiland in THE GIRLS
OF MISCHIEF BAY when
her husband passed away suddenly, and she had to deal with
life without him. Her kids were all grown and gone from
home, and Pam was at a loss. She's now dealing just fine
two years later. Pam has moved into a condo and seems to
have her life together, until she meets a very charming,
irresistible man, who just happens to be the father of her
daughter's best friend. To complicate things even more, Pam
has just nudged her own son, Steven, in this young lady's
Zoe Saldivar quit her teaching job to work from home at a
job that paid better with fewer working hours. She did it
hoping that the relationship she'd been in for five years
was moving toward marriage. When she found out he was
already married with a family, Zoe was devastated. Now
she's trapped at home with no social life and is miserable.
Steven Eiland seems to be the perfect remedy for that. They
get along quite well and things are looking up, until Zoe
gets some very bad news that could be devastating for this
Jen Beldon is Pam's daughter and Zoe's best friend. She's
been home with her first child for eighteen months and is a
nervous, obsessed, over-thinking new mom. She's making
herself crazy, as well as everyone around her. And on top
of that, her son has never spoken a word. All other
development has been normal and right on time, but Jen has
never heard the sound of her child's voice. This makes a
strain on her relationship with her husband, her mom and
Zoe, who all have Jen's best interest at heart.
Susan Mallery explores three more charming characters in A
MILLION LITTLE THINGS. It's easy to see a little bit of
ourselves in each one of them. Her characters are
realistic, even flawed, but work through their personal
problems, as well as their relational ones. They move from
feeling weak and unsure of themselves to feeling a little
more powerful, self-confident and strong. As their worlds
begin to spin out of control, all they can do is hang on
for the ride. The storyline seamlessly weaves the lives of
these ladies together and tells a delightful tale. Ms.
Mallery does a great job of explaining what has happened in
previous books in this series, as well as explaining
supporting characters introduced in those books. This one
can be read as a stand-alone. Don't miss it!
From the bestselling author of The Girls
of Mischief Bay and The Friends We
Keep comes a twisty tale of family dynamics that
explores what can go terribly, hysterically wrong when the
line between friendship and family blursâ€¦
Zoe Saldivar is more than just singleâ€”she's ALONE. She
recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend, she works
from home and her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her
baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship.
The day Zoe accidentally traps herself in her attic with her
hungry-looking cat, she realizes that it's up to her to stop
living in isolation.
Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the
complicatedâ€”her first new friend is Jen's widowed mom, Pam.
The only guy to give her butterflies in a very long time is
Jen's brother. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately
seduced by Zoe's own smooth-as-tequila father. Pam's
flustered, Jen's annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think
"alone" doesn't sound so bad, after all.
Friendship isn't just one thingâ€”it's a million little
things, and no one writes them with more heart and humor
than book club sensation Susan Mallery!
