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.

Love is hard

This is a story about a bride, and her three daughters. We learn about their relationships with one another, and the men in their lives also. The wedding will either make them or break them, as large gatherings are known to do.

Courtney, Sienna, & Rachel all have their own obstacles to overcome. Meanwhile, the bride, their mother, is trying to relive her younger dreams with an elaborate wedding. It is a good thing her future husband is loaded.

I really enjoyed this book. There was so much, from so many perspectives that it took me by surprise. The characters are all very interesting in their own right. Each relationship was fascinating to read as it came together. Good story with several HEA's at the end.

Loved it!!

An awesome read that I could not put down. Susan Mallery's debut hardcover is sure to make a big hit. From the cover to every page is a treasure. The Daughters of Bride deals with three adult sisters, as they are planning their mom's second wedding. Their Mom wanted everything to be perfect, since she didn't get to plan her first wedding. Courtney, Sienna and Rachel, are all so different. They are all harboring their own secrets and trying to find their true love.

I was so excited that Gracie, got a cameo in this book as the cake baker. She was from the book Falling For Gracie, this book hold a special place in my heart. My first Susan Mallery book, that got me hooked!!

My favorite line from the book, "It's about secrets, we all have them. They make us feel safe. They get us through." I highly recommend you pick up this book, it will definitely be on my reread shelf.
