As busy moms, it can be extremely difficult to find time to read… But with summer upon us, it’s time to relax by the pool, on the lake, or at the beach. And if you’re anything like I am, you know there’s no better way to spend that time than with an incredible book in hand. A page turner with characters you’re invested in and a plot that enthralls you.

But oftentimes, you can’t totally relate to those characters. They don’t deal with the complexities of blended family life the same way you do or deal with stepmom stigma. Until Now!

I am thrilled to share with you the 15 highest rated stepmom novels! Whether you’re relaxing by the beach or cruising on a road trip this summer, you’ll love these stories, featuring characters you can actually relate to!

No matter your choice, I am certain you’ll enjoy reading stories that represent your reality – the reality of blended families. You know that I believe stepmomming is what you do and not who you are, so I certainly don’t believe the only books you’ll ever want to read are stepmom novels. But it’s nice sometimes to read a story with a family structure that aligns with yours.
