The Baxter sisters come from a long line of women with disastrous luck in love. But this summer, Sunshine and Margot will turn disasters into destiny... As an etiquette coach, Margot teaches her clients to fit in. But she's never faced a client like Bianca, an aging movie star who gained fame--and notoriety--through a campaign of shock and awe. Schooling Bianca on the fine art of behaving like a proper diplomat's wife requires intensive lessons, forcing Margot to move into the monastery turned mansion owned by the actress's intensely private son. Like his incredible home, Alec's stony exterior hides secret depths Margot would love to explore. But will he trust her enough to let her in? Sunshine has always been the good-time sister, abandoning jobs to chase after guys who used her, then threw her away. No more. She refuses to be "that girl" again. This time, she'll finish college, dedicate herself to her job as a nanny, and she 100 percent will not screw up her life again by falling for the wrong guy. Especially not the tempting single dad who also happens to be her boss. Master storyteller Susan Mallery weaves threads of family drama, humor, romance and a wish-you-were-there setting into one of the most satisfying books of the year!… (mais)

Rating: 4/5

I received a digital copy of this ARC by NetGalley and Harlequin Books in exchange for an unbiased review.

Fraternal twins Margot and Sunshine Baxter are the best of friends. Margot works as an etiquette coach following in her grandmother’s footsteps. She is meticulous and proud of her success until she takes on a difficult client. Margot is up for the challenge until she realizes her client is a former actress with a colorful history. Alec is Bianca’s son who hires Margot to coach his mother who is preparing to marry a diplomat. Bianca fears her outgoing manner may embarrass her fiancé.

Sunshine is trying to find her way in the world after numerous setbacks. She is determined to change her old impulsive lifestyle which has only led to heartbreak. She decides she wants to go to college which is an abandoned dream she has always regretted. Sunshine has always found work as a nanny although her work history has been less than stellar. Again, she is determined to not allow a man to sweep her off her feet only to abandon her. She is fortunate to gain employment as a nanny for a recently widowed father, Declan. His son Connor forms an immediate bond with Sunshine which allows him to overlook her unreliable work history.

This is a wonderful of story about two sisters navigating through life with the support of each other. The story is one of love, family, and dedication. The characters are enjoyable and although you can guess how the story ends, you are hoping for the happy ending they deserve.

Please note that I received this book via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review.

Well that was actually a good read compared to the other two books I finished this weekend. There were some weak subplots going on, but I did love the two sisters (Sunshine and Margot) relationship. For once we didn't get very little scenes with people who are related. These two depend on each other and love each other. The romantic interests were okay, I do have to call BS on Sunshine's though, there's a lot there that made me squirmy and I really wish that romance authors would stop with the boss/employee relationship. I read Ask A Manager too much because all I could think was the sexual harassment claims that can come in.

Sunshine is back trying to nanny again after finally ridding herself of the last guy she dated. She is determined to go back to college and get her degree in child psychology. Her new job has her being a nanny to a newly widowed father (Declan) of a young boy. Sunshine is determined to try to date "good" guys this time, but keeps finding more and more men are only attracted to her body. She also realizes that she may be falling for her boss.

Margot is an etiquette coach. She gets hired to transform an aging movie star (Bianca) who has plans to marry a diplomat and live abroad. She realizes this job may be tougher than she thought and she starts thinking about her client's son Alec.

Mallery does a good job with giving a solid backstory to Sunshine and Margot. There mother ran off and left them as did their grandmother. The great grandmother raised them and had dreams of one of them becoming Miss America one day. I don't even know what to say about all of that. I can't imagine having that as a goal for my great grand kids. Anyway, both women have scars due to their mother abandoning them and their lack of solid relationships. Both sisters end up picking losers and or people who just use and throw them away.

I enjoyed all of the dialogue with Sunshine and Margot. It reminds me of similar conversations with my sister and best friends.

I do have to say though that the twin plots didn't hold up much though. Margot and her job with Bianca starting boring me after a while. And when you realize why Bianca is acting the way she is it felt like a reach and too similar to Stephen King's Carrie backstory. Sunshine's plot with her going to school and trying with math was good though. I liked that she was focused on getting a good grade and did laugh at her math tutor going get a therapist, I am not here to listen to your problems.

The love interests were okay. Alec fitting the nerdy but secretly sexy type. Declan though bugged me a lot. We get a whole backstory on what was going on with his marriage. I still say that Mallery included it though so her readers didn't boo his butt for thinking sexy thoughts about his nanny.

The writing was very good and the flow was great. I have pinged Maller's other series before due to there being a plethora of characters and very little to tie them together. For once Mallery makes a book about sisters and stays fixed on them. I definitely liked this one better than "The Tulip Sisters."

The ending felt rushed with Sunshine's story, but I liked how Margot's ended. ( )

It was not my favorite by her, but it was cute.. and after a bunch of WWIIs, I needed something "fruffy". ( )

The Summer of Sunshine & Margot by Susan Mallery is an absolutely charming novel of new beginnings, family and love.

Thirty-one year old Margot Baxter is looking forward to her newest assignment working with impulsive, quirky former actress Bianca. Margot is an etiquette coach who is tasked with helping Bianca temper her behavior so as not to harm her fiancé's career as a diplomat. Bianca insists Margot stay with her during their lessons which is not normally an issue. However, Bianca is temporarily living with her son Alec Mcnichol who prefers the quiet life. Initially keeping to herself, Margot is surprised when she and Alec form an easygoing friendship that eventually turns into an unexpected attraction. Alec fears turning into his chaotic mother so how will he react when he has few troubling instances of out of character behavior as his relationship with Margot becomes more serious? And is Margot finally free of the one man from her past whose infrequent interruptions of her life have spelled troubled for her after she makes impulsive choices?

Margot's fraternal twin sister Sunshine is determined to break free of her self-destructive behavior. She has a long history of making impetuous decisions and she is resolute as she holds firm to her commitment to change her life. She is loving her latest position as a nanny for eight year old Connor. However, her college class is not going as smoothly as Sunshine hoped. She is also fighting an strong attraction to her boss, widower Declan Dubois. Will Sunshine trust her instincts once she realizes that she is falling for Declan and that he has feelings for her too?

The Summer of Sunshine & Margot is an endearing novel with a marvelous cast of winsome characters. Margot and Sunshine are extremely close and they have worked hard to overcome their residual issues from their mother's abandonment. Alec is a delightful blend of nerdy and sexy and although he loves his mother, he does not share her propensity for creating turmoil. Declan is still attempting to heal from the events that preceded his wife's death but he is also surprisingly ready to move forward. Young Connor is a bright and loving child and his interactions with Sunshine are an absolute joy.

Susan Mallery newest release is an engaging feel-good story that will delight and captivate readers of the genre. ( )

Honestly, from the moment I turned to page one and began reading, I was totally on board with this one, from story to character. The sisters are so different, yet intensely connected. Though they share their family history, each of their stories is unique to them and just as enthralling. They are alike in some fashions, but not in all...and that's okay! Fraternal twins or not, they are individuals! Seeing life from both their perspectives was entertaining, and so emotional.

Sunshine has always been able to attract the boys, and while that was fine in the moment, it led to some disastrous decisions, and quite frankly, she finally wants more than that. I couldn't have applauded her efforts any louder, nor laughed any harder at how she spurned some of the unwanted attention. Margot has always been ambitious and beautiful, just not in the way her grandmother would have wanted, but even she needs a break from her past...DESPERATELY...with it, time to perhaps fall for someone new. Seeing her let her hair down , figuratively and literally, was refreshing, and again, despite the pitfalls of her current job, I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome of things on a professional and personal level.

In the end, it was such a good story! I adored the sisters, the potential love interests, Bianca, Connor, and the rest of the bit players too! While a great summer read to pass the sunny days, it has so much more depth to it as well. It's about growing up, or rather into the person we want to be, accepting our past, and looking forward to tomorrow. It's about letting love in, and giving second chances when deserved. It's about not settling for less than we deserve, striving for our dreams, and not being afraid to ask for help in achieving them. Really and truly, it's cemented its way into being one of my favorites of this author's lengthy published title list...and I couldn't be happier for it.
