Madeline, Avery, and Nikki are strangers to each other, but they have one thing in common. They each wake up one morning to discover their life savings have vanished, along with their trusted financial manager - leaving them with nothing but co-ownership of a ramshackle beachfront house.
Throwing their lots in together, they take on the challenge of restoring the historic property. But just as they begin to reinvent themselves and discover the power of friendship, secrets threaten to tear down their trust - and destroy their lives a second time.
"The sexual magnetism between the bickering Chase and Avery, and a secret that Nicole keeps from her newfound friends, add dramatic tension to Wax's formulaic plot, showcasing three women who rise above their shattered realities with grace, determination, and a little elbow grease."

Yes and No! There was some bad language is this book. I do not like it!
The friendships developed by the characters in this story. I read the second book before the first so I knew a little bit about the first book. They had to work hard on remodeling the property. At my age I don't know if I could have. Takes me back to the saying 'Where there is a will There is a way".
Yes, because they were all trying to achieve the same goal. Get some of their money back that was stolen from them. All the while trying to keep their family from falling a part.
She did a very good job of making the different characters come alive.
A pretty good read minus language.
