Publisher's Summary

Ann Rutherford's and Rhonda DelMonte Grayson's lives continue to be full of surprises as they run The Beach House Hotel, their small upscale hotel on the Gulf Coast in Southwest Florida. Things heat up when Tina Marks (Valentina Marquis, a famous young movie star) is sent to the hotel in secret to lose 25 pounds in eight weeks for her next starring role. As much as Ann and Rhonda want to help Tina succeed, the hotel is known for its delicious food as well as its promise of anonymity, and Tina is impossible to deal with. Then, when Rhonda is faced with a "mysterious illness", Ann's role becomes even more stressful as she tries to find time for her fiancé, Vaughn Sanders, the star of a television soap opera, who deserves the attention she can't give him. As Ann discovers, life is about choices, and she's determined to make the best ones she can to keep Vaughn in her life.

Lunch at the Beach House Hotel

What did you love best about Lunch at the Beach House Hotel?

The continuation of the story from the first audio book and how Angie and Rhonda manage difficult guests, a hurricane, and a wedding.


What did you like best about this story?

The close relationship of Angie and Rhonda with their daughters.


Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, Breakfast at the Beach House Hotel. This audiobook rates as well as the previous one. I am amazed that Angela can change her voice to fit the characters in the book.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. But it took 2 sittings to listen to the complete book


Any additional comments?

Love the series. It took me a while to get accustomed to listening to a book instead of reading. I can't wait for the third book, Dinner at the Beach House Hotel to be released!

A Great Beach Read!

What did you like best about this story?

If you like Debbie Macomber's story style with layers of relationships, layers of romance - sometimes unexpected, and feeling like you are really visiting a new location, then you will love the Beach House Hotel series. I have read both Breakfast (print) and Lunch at the Beach House Hotel (audio) and enjoyed watching the friendships and romantic relationships of these women continue to build over the two books. I see strong potential for the next book to wrap up some tantalizing loose ends.


What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

The character Rhonda is a Jersey Girl and the reader, Angela Dawe, did an excellent job of giving Rhonda so much personality that she was on the verge of stealing every scene she was in - despite the fact that the narrative is never in Rhonda's point of view. Dawe provided a well balanced, articulate, excellent reading. (I 'read' a lot of audio books.)
