Posted June 11, 2019

Dear Reader,

The Summer of Sunshine & Margot is available today! This is the first time in print for this standalone story of fraternal twin sisters who will soon discover that love doesn't wait until you're ready. This story is emotional and funny and romantic and has one of the most intriguing settings I've ever created. I had so much fun exploring this monastery-turned-mansion and discovering hidden treasures along with Margot. I adored writing this book, and I hope reading it will fill you with joy!

The Baxter Sisters have only ever had one another—until one fateful summer when Sunshine and Margot turn disastrous luck into destiny…

Etiquette coach Margot Baxter knows precisely how to manage wayward clients…until she comes face-to-exquisite-face with Bianca, an aging movie star notorious for her shock-and-awe tactics. Schooling Bianca on the fine art of behaving like a diplomat’s wife is the greatest challenge of Margot’s career. Soon, secrets unravel that bring them closer together and force Margot to confront the truth: Change doesn’t just happen. She has to be brave enough to demand the life—and love—she’s always wanted.

For years, Sunshine has been the good-time sister, abandoning jobs to chase after dreams that will never come true. No more. She refuses to be "that girl" again. This time, she’ll finish college and dedicate herself to her future. And she 100 percent will not let her life get derailed by a man again…no matter how tempting that man may be.

Master storyteller Susan Mallery weaves threads of family drama, wit, heart, and a wish-you-were-there setting into one of the most satisfying books of the year!

If you already read the free excerpt at the back of one of my previous books, then the opening chapter might sound familiar to you, but I promise you've never read this book before because The Summer of Sunshine & Margot is brand new today!
