What's Coming in 2016 from Susan Mallery:
2016 Book Releases
2016 Appearances

Happy New Year! I hope that 2015 treated you well and that 2016 is even better. I've got some exciting things in the pipeline for this year—most especially, three brand new books! The Friends We Keep (March), Best of My Love (May), and Daughters of the Bride (July).


In The Friends We Keep, three close friends band together through major turning points in their lives. Nicole is about to find love again after divorce—with the last man she ever expected to like. Gabby is all set to return to work when her twin daughters return to kindergarten, but her plans are derailed by an unexpected family development. Hayley and her husband have reached a stalemate. He thinks they can be happy with just the two of them; she is determined to make any sacrifice to become a mom. This is a story that will speak to your heart, with characters who will feel like close friends. You're going to laugh, and you might just cry a little, too. I promise you this—you'll end the book with a happy sigh, feeling good about the world.

BEST OF MY LOVE – Fool's Gold

Aidan Mitchell is known around Fool's Gold as a bad boy, but deep down, he's a good guy. Or at least, he wants to be. Which is why, after the most embarrassing New Year's Eve fiasco ever, he decides to do whatever he has to in order to, in his words, "not be a jackass." Perfect timing, since Shelby Gilmore is also determined to learn to trust men. Maybe they can help each other…under the watchful eye of every person in town.


The book I'm most excited about this year is Daughters of the Bride, a book of the heart. Courtney Watson has been in my heart and mind for several years now, tapping on my shoulder, asking me to tell her story. But I couldn't do it until I found the perfect guy for her. And I found him—Quinn Yates, a cutting-edge music producer who is finally ready for love, after a lifetime of avoiding commitment.

Daughters of the Bride is what I like to call "romance-plus." In addition to Courtney and Quinn's love story, it's the story of three grown sisters who are bridesmaids at their mom's wedding. (Mom's getting married, and none of her daughters even has a date!) It's a funny and heartwarming family story that's going to push all your Happy buttons. It was an absolute joy to write!

I'm proud to introduce Daughters of the Bride as my hardcover debut. This is such an exciting time for me as a writer, and I hope that having my book in hardcover at bookstores and libraries around the country will help new readers discover me. It's also available for ebook preorder. Amazon is offering a preorder price guarantee, meaning that if you preorder it and the price drops between now and July 12, you'll get it at the lowest offered price. Thank you so much for your continued encouragement and enthusiasm for my books!
