Suzie Fletcher, newspaper columnist is about to turn sixty, and her one birthday wish is to find a man for her daughter. At twenty-nine, Alice needs someone in her life.
Alice Harrison is divorced but sometimes wishes she could separate from her mother or trade her for someone more conservative. Her mother is too persistent on finding her a date and Alice wants her to stop.
In a matter of weeks, Suzie no longer will be a woman in her fifties. Before the big bash, she decides to do something out of the norm. Finding a wealthy boy toy fifteen years her junior, she decides to give him a try. Of course being the one finding all the good dates and her poor daughter, not a single one leaves her a bit sad. Alice realizes she has to find a man for her mother’s birthday or she will never live it down. Alice does one better. She is not one for mixing business with enjoyment but when she suddenly falls for a client, all rules sever with a sudden twist. She and her mother even draw closer in their relationship. Suzie only wishes happiness for her daughter. But when Alice finds her mother searching for younger men for herself to date, Alice ponders on her mother’s real motive in all of this.
Like Mother, Like Daughter is a delightful romp between mother and daughter. Suzie and Alice make a great pair with their banter and finding beaus. The secondary characters blend in elements for a madcap tale. Ms. Sigaloff creates a charming read between mother and daughter while exploring for love. She gives them their own way to locate a man and blends in some merriment along the way. The story is fun, warm and entertaining.
