Susan Mallery's NEW RELEASE ~ When We Found Home

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author
“Heartwarming…a compelling contemporary fairytale that culminates in a satisfyingly happy ending.” — Booklist

When We Found Home (HQN Books; July 10, 2018; $26.99), the latest novel
from beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery, explores the
at once tenuous and unbreakable bonds of family. Delving into the intertwined
lives of three siblings who have only discovered each other’s existence after
years apart, the rich, heartfelt narrative goes to the very core of what family
means and the ways we must sometimes create our own happiness out of the
imperfect cards we are dealt. Once again, as RT Book Reviews has said, Susan
Mallery finds “the perfect balance, digging deep to develop complex, dynamic
characters and captivating, interwoven storylines, while maintaining the perfect
degree of lightness for a summer read.”

 Octogenarian Alberto Carlesso has only recently discovered the existence of grandchildren he never knew he had—the products of his only son’s far-flung relationships with different women. As the founder of a hugely successful gourmet mail order business selling quality Italian food, Alberto has amassed significant wealth, but family ties are most important. Having largely raised his eldest grandson, Malcolm, since age twelve, Alberto is now delighted to discover that Malcolm has two half-sisters: 26-year-old Callie and 12 year-old Keira. Yet, brought to Seattle to live together in the Carlesso manse, these siblings and strangers discover that you can not always force family affection. 

 Malcolm, who until recently has been the only Carlesso, now runs Alberto’s Alfresco, aided by his best friend Santiago. He is a stalwart and honorable man, although his past has left him emotionally
detached.When Keira arrives in the household, Malcolm is at a loss over how to relate to and guide an adolescent, and their relationship is strained. Keira, who has spent most of her life in the foster care system, is understandably wary and overwhelmed by this new life of privilege into which she has been dropped. 

When Callie shows up, it further alters the family dynamic. With a troubled past of her own, including a stint in prison, Callie has worked hard to reintegrate herself into society, and this new fairytale life she has abruptly inherited is beyond comprehension at times. 

 As Malcolm struggles in his new role as brother and de facto head of the family,one person could
help him navigate the thorny path. Delaney, who works as a barista at the coffee stand in the lobby of his building, left behind a highly successful finance career after the shooting death of her police officer fiancé. She is smart, capable, and compassionate. And she can see that under the layer of emotional armor that Malcolm has donned there lurks a great guy ready to love and be loved. But, the drama will extend outside the walls of the Carlesso home when an internal crime at Alberto’s Alfresco threatens not only the business’s bottom line, but the tangled interconnections in the closely-knit company, 

 Susan Mallery writes multilevel plots “rich with assumptions, expectations, and classic family
dynamics, plus exceptionally well-developed and appealing characters,” says Library Journal. Heartfelt, hopeful, and compulsively readable, When We Found Home is vintage storytelling from one of today’s most endearing voices.
