[ ] Dance till dawn [ ] Go skydiving [ ] Wear a bikini in public [ ] Start living Two best friends jump-start their lives in a summer that will change them forever... Single mom Ellen Fox couldn't be more content--until she overhears her son saying he can't go to his dream college because she needs him too much. If she wants him to live his best life, she has to convince him she's living hers. So Unity Leandre, her best friend since forever, creates a list of challenges to push Ellen out of her comfort zone. Unity will complete the list, too, but not because she needs to change. What's wrong with a thirtysomething widow still sleeping in her late husband's childhood bed? The Friendship List begins as a way to make others believe they're just fine. But somewhere between "wear three-inch heels" and "have sex with a gorgeous guy," Ellen and Unity discover that life is meant to be lived with joy and abandon, in a story filled with humor, heartache and regrettable tattoos.

"Fans of ReaAnne Thayne and Robyn Carr will enjoy how prolific women's fiction master Mallery orchestrates community connections, friendships, and fulfilling romances."--Booklist on The Friendship List "Susan Mallery never disappoints."--Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author "The Friendship List is a sassy, sensuous tale about two women who discover their femininity for the first time. Along with the joys and heartaches that accompany this, they realize there is much more to life than working, raising kids, and settling for the mediocre." --New York Journal of Books "Mallery beautifully illustrates the power of female friendship and the importance of reaching for one's dreams...Mallery's women are achingly real. This irresistible, heartfelt story will appeal to romance readers and women's fiction fans alike."--Publishers Weekly "A breath of fresh air for romantics."--Library Journal, Starred Review on The Summer of Sunshine & Margot "A delicious tale destined for beach blankets."--Publishers Weekly on The Summer of Sunshine & Margot "Perfect for a summer read."--Booklist on The Summer of Sunshine & Margot "Gritty and magical, angst-ridden and sweet, this coming-home story by bestseller Mallery (Only His) pulls no punches...
