The Summer of Sunshine & Margot
The Baxter Sisters have only ever had one another—until one fateful summer when Sunshine and Margot turn disastrous luck into destiny…
Etiquette coach Margot Baxter knows precisely how to manage wayward clients…until she comes face-to-exquisite-face with Bianca, an aging movie star notorious for her shock-and-awe tactics. Schooling Bianca on the fine art of behaving like a diplomat’s wife is the greatest challenge of Margot’s career. Soon, secrets unravel that bring them closer together and force Margot to confront the truth: Change doesn’t just happen. She has to be brave enough to demand the life‐and love—she’s always wanted.
For years, Sunshine has been the good-time sister, abandoning jobs to chase after dreams that will never come true. No more. She refuses to be "that girl" again. This time, she’ll finish college and dedicate herself to her future. And she 100 percent will not let her life get derailed by a man again…no matter how tempting that man may be.
Master storyteller Susan Mallery weaves threads of family drama, wit, heart, and a wish-you-were-there setting into one of the most satisfying books of the year!

I really enjoyed this book. Sisters, Margot and Sunshine could not be more different. Margot is the more sensible one where as Sunshine is more free. Of course, you kind of would expect that with a name "Sunshine". Despite being different, they love they shared for one another did not change. Susan Mallery warms the heart string with this latest offering. Which also just happens to be a perfect summertime read.
I liked both women's stories. Alth0ugh, little children do add another extra layer to a story. So, for this point Sunshine won brownie points for her story but Bianca won for her spunkiness and showing that love is not dead at any age. So to be honest, while I did like both women's stories; I liked Margot and Bianca's story better. Susan Mallery scores another win with The Summer of Sunshine and Margot.
