Like most of Susan's books, I laughed, cried, and hurt for the characters. California girls follows three very different sisters who go through a tough breakup and how they come together. I really enjoyed reading this book and how Susan made them all so different yet relatable. I don't know how you keep writing such amazing books susan!! A must read for sure!!

Includes a recipe, discussion questions and an excerpt from: The summer of Sunshine & Margot. 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 the 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.

Amazing read

Like most of Susan's books, I laughed, cried, and hurt for the characters. California girls follows three very different sisters who go through a tough breakup and how they come together. I really enjoyed reading this book and how Susan made them all so different yet relatable. I don't know how you keep writing such amazing books susan!! A must read for sure!!

This is my third book ...

This is my third book by Susan Mallery and what I love about them is you know what you are getting; good and diverse characters, rich family drama and current issues. In California Girls we meet three sisters who all get dumped in the same week; Finola, a TV hostess who finds out her husband is cheating right before she goes on air. Ali, whose fiance can't even bother to tell her the wedding is off himself - his brother brings her the news. And Zennie who really wasn't dating Clark but she sure does miss him when he tells her it just isn't working for him. Each sister gets equal time in the book as Finola works through the heartbreak of losing the man she thought she would spend the rest of her life with in a public arena. She is, after all very well known and everyone wants to know why her husband left her. Ali doesn't understand why a man who asked her to marry him has decided with just a few weeks to go that he can't marry her. As she works through the pain she has help in the form of her fiance's brother and she learns that she has more inner strength than she knew. Zennie is a bit of a free spirit who doesn't understand why everyone thinks she should partner up. She thinks she is getting along just fine on her own. In fact she is getting along so fine she decides to become a surrogate for her best friend who can't have a baby. What she doesn't understand is everyone's negative reaction to her decision. In addition to the three main plots involving the sisters there is a subplot surrounding the girls' mother; she is moving from the house where they grew up and needs their help with clearing it out and is excessively obsessive about having grandchildren. The book moves smoothly between the girls' stories as they work through their romantic trials and deal with parents who seem at times to be less than supportive. It makes for an easy read perfect for a weekend on the couch or for taking on vacation. It's also going to be a great read for the beach this summer. There's romance, family drama, sisterly love and more.

What a light and wonderful story of 3 sisters who are figuring things out after they all have similar aspects of their lives change the same week. I found myself wanting to stick more with each sister, especially Ali, and wanted a little more time of them interacting together, but it was a great story of family, sisterhood and new beginnings. With a Susan Mallery book you are never disappointed.

I received this book for free from TLC Book Tours as part of a review tour. This was my first time reading a book by Susan Mallery and I enjoyed it. This book was a classic chick lit novel. I loved the dynamic between the sisters. That felt very real and organic. The sisters did have their differences but were still able to come together when it mattered. I also loved how each of their stories were different. Even though they all had the commonality of getting dumped at the same time, they all went down different paths. I thought that was really important to show because everyone is different and deals with things in their own way. The one thing I didn't like was how some of the situations that the characters found themselves in weren't that realistic. For example, the way Finola found out about her husband's affair (her husband told her right before she went on air, plus the mistress was the pop star she had to interview, who also confronted her about the affair). But this is a chick lit novel so I can look past that. Part of the fun of reading chick lit is the over the top scenarios that happen. Overall, this was a solid chick lit book perfect for reading while sunbathing in the warm California sun.

This latest offering from author, Susan Mallery is one not to be missed. California Girls needs to be in your bag for spring reading. Sisters, Finola, Zennie, and Ali were great. Each sister was different in her own way. I loved this about them. Their personalities showed in this book. Although my favorite was probably Ali. She was more free spirited. The love connection between Ali and Daniel did produce real sparks. They made a good match. I felt bad for Finola. It is bad enough learning that your husband is cheating with a younger woman but to learn that the other woman is your next guest on your television show is just pouring salt into a fresh wound. Finola was a downer because of this in the beginning but by the end of the story, she had a new release on life. Finally, there is Zennie. She won my heart over with her choice to be a surrogate. To her sisters, she may not have seemed it but she was very level headed and a good friend and sister. If you are a fan of this author's you won't be disappointed by this new book. Sisters forever.
