A Mischief Bay Novel - Book 2
March 2016

In this insightful and compelling story from bookclub favorite Susan Mallery, three close friends test the boundaries of how much a woman can give before she has nothing left.

After five years as a stay-at-home mom, Gabby Schaefer can't wait to return to work. Oh, to use the bathroom in peace! No twins clamoring at the door, no husband barging in, no stepdaughter throwing a tantrum. But when her plans are derailed by some shocking news and her husband's crushing expectations, Gabby must fight for the right to have a life of her own.

Getting pregnant is easy for Hayley Batchelor. Staying pregnant is the hard part. Her husband is worried about the expensive fertility treatments and frantic about the threat to her health. But Hayley believes a woman who was born to be a mom should risk everything to fulfill her destiny--no matter the cost.

Nicole Lord is still shell-shocked by a divorce that wasn't as painful as it should've been. Other than her adorable son, her ex's departure barely left a ripple in their lives. A great new guy tempts her to believe maybe the second time's the charm...but how can she trust herself to recognize true love?

As their bonds of friendship deepen against the beautiful backdrop of Mischief Bay, Gabby, Hayley and Nicole will rely on good food, good wine-and especially on each other-as they navigate life's toughest changes...together.
