Dear Reader,

Thank you to all of my most enthusiastic readers for grabbing California Girls, and for all of your messages to let me know how much you loved it! I'm hosting a special contest to say thank you, so keep reading.

I'm honored by your response to my story of three sisters who are dumped by the men in their lives, and the way they rally together, overcome and flourish.

As you know, with all of my books, I promise you that the characters you've grown to love will end up in a good place, leaving you with a satisfied feeling. BUT those of you who have read California Girls know that one character's happy ending in this book has a different twist. I was nervous, but I've been getting lots of wonderful feedback. I'm relieved you were willing to go there with me!

California Girls is a bestseller!!! Thank you so much to every reader who picked up the book already. Your enthusiasm for my books warms me from the inside out. I write in alone, but I truly do keep my readers in my heart as I write, because someone out there needs every book I write. When a new book comes out, I feel even more connected to you because that’s when the circle is complete. California Girls has debuted at #11 on the New York Times bestsellers list for print and ebook fiction, and at #19 on the USA Today list, which tracks every type and format of book on the same list. With sincerity, I thank you.

The California sunshine’s not quite so bright for three sisters who get dumped in the same week…

Finola, a popular LA morning show host, is famously upbeat until she’s blindsided on live TV by news that her husband is sleeping with a young pop sensation who has set their affair to music. While avoiding the tabloids and pretending she’s just fine, she’s crumbling inside, desperate for him to come to his senses and for life to go back to normal.

Zennie’s breakup is no big loss. Although the world insists she pair up, she’d rather be surfing. So agreeing to be the surrogate for her best friend is a no-brainer—after all, she has an available womb and no other attachments to worry about. Except…when everyone else, including her big sister, thinks she’s making a huge mistake, being pregnant is a lot lonelier—and more complicated—than she imagined.

Never the tallest, thinnest or prettiest sister, Ali is used to being overlooked, but when her fiancé sends his disapproving brother to call off the wedding, it’s a new low. And yet Daniel continues to turn up “for support,” making Ali wonder if maybe—for once—someone sees her in a way no one ever has.

But side by side by side, these sisters will start over and rebuild their lives with all the affection, charm and laugh-out-loud humor that is classic Susan Mallery.
