The Girls of Mischief Bay - Susan Mallery

ARC received from Harlequin.

What a terrific book. It's different from the Fool's Gold stories that Mallery writes - it's a three-fold story braided into something strong.

Nicole, Shannon, and Pam are friends - each woman represents a different age and situation, and while there appears to be little in common they are bonded by loyalty and friendship.

Nicole, in her 30s, may as well be a single mom for all the (lack of) attention her aspiring screenwriter husband brings. Shannon, close to 40, has the career but wants the family and picket fence. Pam, in her 50s, wants to reignite passion with her husband. They complement each other nicely in a tight story.
