Cousins by chance, sisters by choice... After her cat toy empire goes up in flames, Sophie Lane returns to Blackberry Island, determined to rebuild. Until small-town life reveals a big problem: she can't grow unless she learns to let go. If Sophie relaxes her grip even a little, she might lose everything. Or she might finally be free to reach for the happiness and love that have eluded her for so long. Kristine has become defined by her relationship to others. She's a wife, a mom. As much as she adores her husband and sons, she wants something for herself, a sweet little bakery just off the waterfront. She knew changing the rules wouldn't be easy, but she never imagined she might have to choose between her marriage and her dreams. Like the mainland on the horizon, Heather's goals seem beyond her grasp. Every time she manages to save for college, her mother has another crisis. Can she break free, or will she be trapped in this tiny life forever? Told with Mallery's trademark humor and charm, Sisters by Choice is a heartfelt tale of love, family and the friendships that see us through.

I love Susan Mallery. I have never read a book of hers that I didn't love. Her "heroines" are always flawed (as we all are) but they are always people I like and I have always been able to understand where they were coming from and I could always relate to and understand the progression of their growth. No matter their issues, they were always engaging and I liked them.

I did not like this book. The "heroine" was annoying, grating and a jerk. I understood where she got her issues, but I didn't get HER. I read like a fiend, and I have never once ever not finished a book, even one I wasn't crazy about. I read really fast, so it usually isn't an issue. I can finish a book even if it isn't totally engaging me. Just because I always want to know how it ends, you know? This time, about 3/4 of the way through, I almost threw in the towel. Instead, I read the last several pages and there was a good conclusion so I went ahead and finished it.

However, it wasn't believable.

There were three disagreeable characters in this book, and I didn't believe the redemption of any of them. Not the "heroine", not the sister's husband, (those two were supposed to be becoming better people, so that is good, but....not believable) and then Amber, who had no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Which was fine, as it was not portrayed as if she WAS redeemed. Now THAT was believable

Because I love Susan Mallery, I was very disappointed in this book.
