Publisher's Summary

Unlikely friends Madeline, Avery, and Nicole have hit some speed bumps in their lives, but when they arrive in Miami's South Beach neighborhood, they are all hoping for a do-over. Literally. They've been hired to bring a once-grand historic house back to its former glory on a new television show called Do-Over. If they can just get this show off the ground, Nikki would get back on her feet financially, Avery could restart her ruined career, and Maddie would have a shot at keeping her family together.
At least, that's the plan - until the women realize that while having their work broadcast is one thing, having their personal lives play out on TV is another thing entirely. Soon they are struggling to hold themselves, and the project, together. With a decades-old mystery - and the hurricane season - looming, the women are forced to figure out just how they'll weather life's storms.

Impossible to listen to

I quit six hours in... it's probably a good story. I like the idea. But the narrator makes no distinction between the three young women's voices, and trying to figure out who is talking at any one time is absolutely impossible. Beyond that, she runs from one character's story to another's with no break whatever -- it's way beyond confusing. I got tired of backtracking.

So many (new) narrators do this -- run separate story segments together without a break, as if there weren't even a paragraph marking, Once again, I ask: what do they read from? Why can't they at least pause between different character's stories? Is it that they're reading from something that doesn't show paragraphs?

I keep telling myself I'll get back to this one, but honestly, I doubt it...

Hard to listen to.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration. It took the narrator more than 1/2 of the book to change her inflection.

Would you be willing to try another book from Wendy Wax? Why or why not?

Not so sure.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amy Rubinate?


Do you think Ocean Beach needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
