Daughters of the Bride

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


With Joy, Love and a Little Trepidation, Courtney, Sienna and Rachel Invite You to the Most Emotional Wedding of the Year… Their Mother's 


~ The Misfit ~ 

As the awkward one, Courtney Watson may not be as together as her sisters, but she excels at one thing—keeping secrets, including her white-hot affair with a sexy music producer. Planning Mom's wedding exposes her startling hidden life, changing her family's view of her—and how she views herself—forever. 


~ The Free Spirit ~ 

When Sienna's boyfriend proposes—in front of her mom and sisters, for crying out loud—he takes her by surprise. She already has two broken engagements under her belt. Should she say "I do" even if she's not sure she does? 


~ The Cynic ~ 

Rachel thought love would last forever…right up until her divorce. As Mom's wedding day draws near and her ex begs for a second chance, she's forced to acknowledge some uncomfortable truths about why her marriage failed, and decide if she'll let pride stand in the way of her own happily-ever-after.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 11, 2016 – Mallery (the Fool's Gold series) enthralls readers with this introduction to the small seaside community of Los Lobos, Calif., as she follows the lives of a bride's three daughters. Maggie Watson is getting married again almost 24 years after being widowed. She wishes that her daughter Courtney could do better than working as a maid at the Los Lobos Hotel, but she doesn't realize that Courtney does much more than a maid's work. Maggie's daughter Rachel is a talented hairdresser who is still in love with her ex-husband and is surprised when he begins pitching in to help her out. And middle daughter Sienna enjoys her work for a nonprofit that assists women who are escaping domestic violence. While Maggie enthusiastically plans her wedding with plenty of variations of pink, Courtney is embarking on a romance with a sexy music producer who happens to be the grandson of her boss, Rachel and her ex begin to make tentative steps toward reconciling, and Sienna stuns herself by agreeing to marry her boyfriend. Mallery thoroughly involves readers in the lives of her characters as they face realistic, believable problems and search for their own happy endings.

Customer Reviews

Not worth a read

Thought I was reading a book about women, but after the gratuitous sex scene between Courtney and Quinn I gave up. This book is more like the old romance novels that used Fabio on the covers. Sorry I paid $12 for this.

Road to Wedding Full of Emotions

Being involved in a family celebration, like a wedding, can be a daunting task. Emotions clearly lead some divisive, some joyful, some exhausting; but at the end, you hope to have been apart of a special event that will lead to lasting memories. In Susan Mallery’s new book, “Daughters of the Bride”, we get to join the planning process of this very decorative, one-of-kind, wedding leading to the big event. We meet the bride, Maggie, and her 3 adult daughters, Rachel, Sienna, and Courtney, who each are dealing with their interpretations of love, fear, their past and the possibilities for their future. Add some strong males who can handle these ladies, plus some great friends and you have the makings of a wonderful story.

The pages flow with each event setting the pace for the growth of each character, from engagement to cake tasting, to LA party to wedding day disasters. In the end, it’s the beauty of truly understanding yourself and the value of family that shines. Longer than previous books, this first time hardcover, is a delight to read and as a Susan Mallery fan, I eagerly await more stories like this one. “Daughters of the Bride” is perfect for all, regardless of whether a guest or planning a wedding, you too will relish in the pre-event adventures.

Here comes another read read!!!

***I was given an ARC copy of this book for a true and honest review***

I've long been a Susan Mallery fan, her Fool's Gold series was the first thing I read from her. Everything that Ms. Mallery writes is well written, laid out, and well developed. I had some preconceptions before reading this book about some hearts and flowers a beautiful bride and her lovely daughters - this story is that but so much more.

Maggie is getting her dream wedding after years of being alone. She and her daughters are gathered around her for this auspicious occasion.

Not everything is hearts and flowers because when your all together with your family that's always the potential for drama. Maggie's three daughters are Rachel, Sienna, and Courtney. They each bring their pwn emotional baggage with them. Rachel is a struggling divorced mother of a teenage son, Sienna is the flighty perennial fianee, and there's Courtney the youngest whom no one bothers overly with and who no is expecting anything remarkable from her. Having come toghter emotions are running high for everyone.

This story is about love of family, inner strength, and giving those in our lives second chances. I really emjopyed the book but flet that the tempo of the story was a little slow. Flipping between characters got to be a little confusing from time to time. Each daughters story could definitely been expan ded on or made into another book dealing especially with them their issues and relationships. Always Ms. Mallery has delivered another excellent book that engtages you, makes you laugh, and tugs at your heart.
