The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery | Book Review

From The Publisher

The Baxter sisters come from a long line of women with disastrous luck in love. But this summer, Sunshine and Margot will turn disasters into destiny…

As an etiquette coach, Margot teaches her clients to fit in. But she’s never faced a client like Bianca, an aging movie star who gained fame—and notoriety—through a campaign of shock and awe. Schooling Bianca on the fine art of behaving like a proper diplomat’s wife requires intensive lessons, forcing Margot to move into the monastery turned mansion owned by the actress’s intensely private son. Like his incredible home, Alec’s stony exterior hides secret depths Margot would love to explore. But will he trust her enough to let her in?

Sunshine has always been the good-time sister, abandoning jobs to chase after guys who used her, then threw her away. No more. She refuses to be “that girl” again. This time, she’ll finish college, dedicate herself to her job as a nanny, and she 100 percent will not screw up her life again by falling for the wrong guy. Especially not the tempting single dad who also happens to be her boss.

Master storyteller Susan Mallery weaves threads of family drama, humor, romance and a wish-you-were-there setting into one of the most satisfying books of the year!

My Review

Both Sunshine and Margot are easy to love characters and the writing was engaging from the very first page. The dual narrative story of two sisters finding romance and love while pursuing other interests made for a different kind of romantic story and the author incorporated a multiplicity of elements that appealed to me in many different ways. The adorable 8-year-old charge that Sunshine is responsible for on her nanny duties, the witty older woman that Margot is supposed to be teaching but ends up learning from, the men who provide not just romance potential for the sisters but are also stable cornerstones for their family, as well as the architectural and scientific descriptions that pepper the pages, add yet another layer of interest to an already gorgeous story. I highly recommend this one for all that it provides – a fun, easy, smart, summer read and so much more.

      This is a really enjoyable book and I recommend that you set aside an afternoon to read it in one sitting because you won’t want to put it down once you’ve started.
