Summary

Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery masterfully explores the definition of a modern family--blended by surprise, not by choice--and how those complicated relationships can add unexpected richness to life.

"Heartwarming...this book is sweet and will appeal to readers who enjoy the intricacies of family drama."--Publishers Weekly

Life is meant to be savored, but that's not easy with no family, limited prospects and a past you'd rather not talk about.

Callie Smith doesn't know how to feel when she discovers she has a brother and a sister--Malcolm, who grew up with affection, wealth and privilege, and Keira, a streetwise twelve-year-old. Despite her trepidation, she moves into the grand family home with her siblings and grandfather on the shores of Lake Washington, hoping just maybe this will be the start of a whole new life.

But starting over can be messy. Callie and Keira fit in with each other, but not with their posh new lifestyle, leaving Malcolm feeling like the odd man out in his own home. Becoming a family will take patience, humor, a little bit of wine and a whole lot of love. But love isn't Malcolm's strong suit...until he learns that an open heart, like the family table, can always make room for more.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Mallery (Sisters like Us) spins a heartwarming but shallow story about people searching for security and love. In present-day Seattle, Delaney Holbrook is trying to move on after losing her fiancé and quitting her job. She turns to Malcolm Carlesso, who's running his family's company and has his own life upheaval in the form of two recently discovered younger sisters, Kiera and Callie. As Malcolm tries to raise Kiera, he's dealing with Callie's past as a convicted felon and her budding romance with his best friend, Santiago Trejo. To top it all off, someone is stealing from his company. Though the characters manage to figure out how to be family, there's so much going on that the issues of the relationships are only surface level. Despite the complexities, this book is sweet and will appeal to readers who enjoy the intricacies of family drama. Agent: Annelise Robey, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
