Would you try another book from Mary Alice Monroe and/or Mary Alice Monroe?
Yes, because her other books are much better written than this one.
What do you think your next listen will be?
"Dead Certain" by Adam Mitzer
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mary Alice Monroe?
I don't recall the names of narrators, but I'm not in love with Mary Alice Monroe as a narrator. There was very little inflation when she changed characters.
Could you see Beach House for Rent being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Quite possibly. I don't pay much attention to Actresses so I wouldn't have a clue!
Any additional comments?
I like all of her books, this one just didn't hit the mark for me. I didn't especially like the author as a narrator.

Starts with a bang but fizzles out
There are many aspects of this book that are beautifully written and informative. The story begins well with the arrival of an agoraphobic daughter brought to the island to the Beach House by her father. The impact of the death of their mother affects both Heather and her landlady Cara in ways that are revealed later. The dynamics between the Cara and her brother Robert is also interesting. Very early in the story the sudden death of Brett, Cara husband changes everything. The slow recovery of Cara and Heather are credible and fascinating. However, by the middle of the book, I became very bored by the courtship of Bo and Heather and the slow pace of the storyline. I was disappointed by the end.
The author writes and reads beautifully but I would have liked more restraint.
