Daughters of the Bride {+ Giveaway}

I’m delighted to be a part of the pre-order blog tour for author Susan Mallery’s soon-to-be released, DAUHTERS OF THE BRIDE. Also I’d like to wish everyone (who is celebrating) a safe and wonderful FOURTH OF JULY!!

Susan’s fascinating new book will be on bookshelves later this month. To celebrate the release, there’s a tour-wide giveaway for some amazing items. Please be sure to see the end of the post for more giveaway details.

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

Courtney ~ 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.

Sienna ~ 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?

Rachel ~ 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.

A must-read for anyone who has survived the wedding of a sister, a mother, a daughter—as told by #1 New York Times bestselling author and master storyteller Susan Mallery!

DAUHTERS OF THE BRIDE is available to pre-order at the following sites: Amazon, Barnesand Noble, iBooks and Kobo. It can also be found on Goodreads

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you’re having a grand holiday (or just a grand day if you’re not celebrating). Do you think weddings are more hectic for mothers with daughters marrying or for daughters with mothers marrying?



  1. I think any wedding can be hectic. And even a little scary and overwhelming. Bridezilla's are unfortunately real. And it is equally true that some weddings are a delight from planning to the celebration itself.

  2. What an interesting perspective to take on a 'wedding story,' Mason! And the characters sound interesting, too. Thanks for sharing.

  3. At weddings, like any big, planned, family social event, emotions and costs run high. There's usually more than one "Type A" personality in the picture, and tension can be sharp enough to cut the wedding cake! Mothers want the best for their daughters, and daughters want to live up to their mother's ideals.

  4. With everything going on with her daughters, mom probably wishes she'd eloped.

  5. Congratulations, Susan. The cover is stunning.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
