Blog Tour: The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery


The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery is an Adult Women’s Fiction story of sisters. love, and summer!


unnamedThe 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!


This is my first time reading this author, and I gotta say that she really drew me into this summer read! Perfect for a beachside morning!!

We follow two sisters who are close as thieves yet complete opposites when it comes to their personalities. Yet, each of them are having the hardest time finding a lasting relationship. 

I really enjoyed Margot‘s job in helping people’s social lives even though she’s having a little trouble herself. It really drew me into the story quickly, and I gravitated towards her POV a little more.

I also liked reading the dynamics in their past and the hardships they had to overcome. I gave a cozy, realistic feel to the whole story.

There is love, sisterly support, and overall lowering  emotional walls in an attempt to find true love. It was touching and a great, feel-good story. I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars, and I recommend it if you love tales of sisters and relationships!
