Content descriptions

General Note: Includes reader's guide (10 pages).
Summary, etc.: "Divorce left Harper Szymanski with a name no one can spell, a house she can't afford and a teenage daughter who's pulling away. With her fledgling virtual-assistant business, she's scrambling to maintain her overbearing mother's ridiculous Susie Homemaker standards and still pay the bills, thanks to clients like Lucas, the annoying playboy cop who claims he hangs around for Harper's fresh-baked cookies. Spending half her life in school hasn't prepared Dr. Stacey Bloom for her most daunting challenge--motherhood. She didn't inherit the nurturing gene like Harper and is in deep denial that a baby is coming. Worse, her mother will be horrified to learn that Stacey's husband plans to be a stay-at-home dad...assuming Stacey can first find the courage to tell Mom she's already six months pregnant. Separately they may be a mess, but together Harper and Stacey can survive anything--their indomitable mother, overwhelming maternity stores and ex's weddings."--Page 4 of cover

    Bunny has old-fashioned ideas about what it means to be a wife and mother. Her beliefs put a strain on her relationships with her daughters, Harper and Stacey. Recently divorced Harper has to work for the first time in her life in order to keep a roof over the heads of her and her teenage daughter. She's started a virtual-assistant business that's brought in several clients, including Lucas, a sexy cop in his 50s with a penchant for younger women. Stacey, on the other hand, really only feels at home in her lab, where she is researching a cure for multiple sclerosis, or with her husband. She's six months pregnant and has yet to tell her mother. She's concerned that she won't feel a connection to her child, and even more worried about telling her mother that her husband will be a stay-at-home dad. Though the story feels a bit too long and the ending a bit too rushed, fans of Mallery's Mischief Bay series (beginning with The Girls of Mischief Bay, 2015) will enjoy this fourth entry, which explores the congenial relationship between the sisters and the growing relationship between Harper and Lucas.
