The grass is always greener on your sister's side of the fence....
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. Sisters Like Us is a delightful look at sisters, mothers, and daughters in today's fast-paced world, told with Susan Mallery's trademark warmth and humor.

What I loved about this book is that it continues the story of Lucas (who we have met in other books). I've always loved his character as a playboy and man's man. You could tell in previous books that he cares about the bonds of marriage, but is wary of it for himself. He is a great friend to both the men and women in his life.
You will develop a love/hate relationship with Bunny (the mom). You can tell she wants what is best for her daughters and that she loves them dearly; however, you will hate how critical she can be. You grow to understand her and her daughters throughout the novel and can envision being friends with them all.
Another great book, Susan. Can't wait for the next one.
The story relates the tribulations of two sisters and their families during a time when they are both going through big changes in their lives.
Harper Szymanski was brought up to become the perfect housewife. Sadly, she's now divorced and her ex-husband is dating someone younger. She's having problems with her teenage daughter who's rebellious and selfish at times. She's also struggling with her monthly bills and her job as a virtual assistant. Over the years, she has developed a clientele including Lucas, a cop who got hurt in the line of duty and who needed someone to organize his life afterward. Harper loves to do things from scratch. She's a great cook and great at her job as an assistant but her relationship with her daughter is suffering and she's not dedicating enough time to her job either. She feels overwhelmed.
Stacey Bloom is a research scientist. She's very smart and she's also very pregnant. She hasn't told her mother she's six months pregnant and the longer she waits to tell her, the harder it is. You see, Stacey has never wanted to be a mother but she loves her husband and they are at the right time in their lives to start a family. Her husband adores her and supports her. He's also going to be taking care of their baby once he's born while she goes back to work. Yet, she dreads telling her mother she's pregnant since her mother believes her to be a failure. She's nothing like Harper. Being a housewife was never her goal. But her mother, Bunny is old school and under her hypercritical eyes, neither daughter became what she wanted them to be.
Sisters Like Us had more of a women's fiction vibe than a romance. I still very much appreciate the romance in it. Lucas was great until I wanted to punch him but regardless, he was there for Harper in so many different ways. He was also there for Harper's daughter. Stacey's husband was adorable and just perfect for her. I love the humor in this novel. So many great quotes. Some of them had me laughing out loud. I love seeing the growth of the female characters too. Harper's daughter learned to think about more than herself and started helping Harper more. I never warmed up to Bunny. She was mean to her daughters and her archaic thoughts rubbed me the wrong way.
I want to go back and read the rest of the books in this series. I know I'll enjoy them.
Stacey is a 40 year old married woman who is expecting, but hasn’t shared the joyous news with their hyper-critical mother because “the time just never seemed right”. But these two sisters are close and supportive of each other and supported by those closest to them.
Harper finds an unlikely ally in one of her clients. Stacey receives unexpected support from her nephew. In a world filled with drama, they have to get their acts together and proceed, but life keeps throwing them curveballs.
I love Susan’s books. Her characters are relatable and I feel like I’m part of their inner circle.
