Divorce left Harper Szymanski with a name no one can spell, a house she can't afford, and a teenage daughter who's pulling away. With her fledgling virtual-assistant business, she's scrambling to maintain her overbearing mother's ridiculous Susie Homemaker standards and still pay the bills, thanks to clients like Lucas, the annoying playboy cop who claims he hangs around for Harper's fresh-baked cookies.
Spending half her life in school hasn't prepared Dr. Stacey Bloom for her most daunting challenge - motherhood. She didn't inherit the nurturing gene like Harper and is in deep denial that a baby is coming. Worse, her mother will be horrified to learn that Stacey's husband plans to be a stay-at-home dad...assuming Stacey can first find the courage to tell Mom she's already six months pregnant.
Separately they may be a mess, but together Harper and Stacey can survive anything - their indomitable mother, overwhelming maternity stores, and ex's weddings. Sisters Like Us is a delightful look at sisters, mothers, and daughters in today's fast-paced world, told with Susan Mallery's trademark warmth and humor.

I listened to the audio book of this one. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the contrast between the sisters as well as the mother. Harper and Stacey live to completely different lifestyles and feel completely out of their element with their mother. Nothing is ever good enough for her.

This book has it all: a) a mother whose ideals have aged and set expectations no normal person can meet, b) teen age sex and the consequences, c) adult sex without relationship building, d) work realities and e) a new baby. Wow-at some point I was wondering how much more can these characters deal with. It has some ability growing at the end. Thank heavens.
