#1 NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Author


SEPTEMBER 28, 2021

Posted May 10, 2019

Dear Reader,

As you know, my next book, The Summer of Sunshine and Margot, comes out in about a month. (A month?? Yay!) Check out all the fun bonus content at the book's beautiful new website, SunshineandMargot.com. I think it's just about the brightest and happiest place on the web.

I love the cover of this book so much that I had gorgeous epoxy magnetic-back lapel pins made—and I have 200 of them to give away!

Unlike most of my giveaways, this is not a random drawing. This time, we're looking for the readers who will promise to wear the lapel pin around other people the week of June 11. After that week, you can keep wearing it, or it will make a great fridge magnet.

Enter now on the Contest page at SusanMallery.com. Contest is open internationally.

California Girls Sale for Mother's Day

It's incredibly rare that a current release goes on sale, but this is one of those times—and this is a deal that will make your jaw drop! California Girls is only $1.99 in all ebook formats, but only until May 13, so you have to get it right away!

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.
