From the bestselling author of The Girls of Mischief Bay and The Friends We Keep comes a twisty tale of family dynamics that explores what can go terribly, hysterically wrong when the line between friendship and family blurs. Zoe Saldivar is more than just single-she's ALONE. She recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend, she works from home and her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship. The day Zoe accidentally traps herself in her attic with her hungry-looking cat, she realizes that it's up to her to stop living in isolation. Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the complicated-her first new friend is Jen's widowed mom, Pam. The only guy to give her butterflies in a very long time is Jen's brother. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately seduced by Zoe's own smooth-as-tequila father. Pam's flustered, Jen's annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think "alone" doesn't sound so bad, after all. Friendship isn't just one thing-it's a million little things, and no one writes them with more heart and humor than book club sensation Susan Mallery!

"Listeners are welcomed back to Mischief Bay, where three friends face various challenges in their lives. Narrator Tanya Eby ably characterizes the voices of Zoe and Jen, the younger women. Pam, a widow, is given a more mature voice. Eby evokes the stresses that weigh on Jen, including her concern about her young son's lack of speech. Equally charming is Eby's smooth portrayal of Zoe's father as he courts Pam. A blossoming romance between Zoe and Pam's son adds to the mix. Even friendship is portrayed with charm; listeners will smile at the playful interactions between Jen and her husband's police partner, Lucas. This audiobook is a pleasurable way to pass an afternoon. S.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
