For The Love Of Summer

Published: August 2024

  • An uplifting new story of family and friendship from New York Times bestselling author, Susan Mallery

    Friendship in unlikely places

    As the owner of Twisted, Seattle’s best salon, Erica knows that the sharpest cuts come from the people we love. She’s terrified that she’s losing her teen daughter to her ‘other’ family as Summer grows closer to her stepmum, Allison.

    All it takes to blow up Allison’s happy life is one call. From prison. Her husband, Peter, has been arrested, leaving Allison pregnant, scared and alone with a toddler. So her stepdaughter rushes to the last person Allison wants to ask for help – her husband’s battle-axe ex.

    Erica would do anything for Summer, even take in the woman her daughter loves like a second mum and her adorable son. Can they move beyond their past and rethink what it means to be family?
