Publisher's Summary

In this brand-new summer listen by the USA Today best-selling author of The House on Mermaid Point, three women join forces to bring a historic seaside hotel back to life.
There's nothing that a fresh coat of paint and a few glasses of wine can't fix....
After losing their life savings in a Ponzi scheme, Maddie, Avery, and Nikki have banded together to make the most of what they have left, using their determination, ingenuity, and guts - and a large dose of elbow grease. It's Maddie's daughter, Kyra, who stumbles across a once glorious beachfront hotel that has fallen into disrepair. The opportunity to renovate this seaside jewel is too good to pass up - especially when they come up with the idea of shooting their own independent television show about the restoration. What could possibly go wrong?
Everything. With the cameras rolling, Maddie's second-chance romance with her all-too-famous new boyfriend gets complicated, Avery struggles with grief over the loss of her mother, and Nikki's reluctance to commit to the man who loves her could leave her to face the biggest challenge of her life. Even the hotel seems to be against them when their renovation uncovers a decades-old unsolved murder that just might bring their lives tumbling down all over again….

Just sort of a train wreck

What disappointed you about Sunshine Beach?

I've listened to all of the other 10 Beach Road books and thought that this book would continue in the same vein. Instead it went off on this strange storyline about Renee and her sister, Analiese, whom we have never met before. Most of the story was spent on them. Otherwise it was spent on a ridiculous and unbelievable fight between Nikki and Joe. Then Steve Singer, Maddie's ex-husband had a huge part in this story. I was sick of his character still moping around, whining and looking pathetic. I was so disappointed.


Would you ever listen to anything by Wendy Wax again?

I've listened to a lot of Wendy Wax and have loved all of her other books.


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

Amy Rubinate's performances are always stellar.


What character would you cut from Sunshine Beach?

Steve Singer, please!


Any additional comments?

Don't rush to just put out a story. It's really disappointing to the fans.

Sliding Ever Lower Into Oblivion

When I read the first book in this series I became a fan of both the author and the series and I'm the kind of small town woman who knows loyalty. Fortunately I'm also the kind of modern woman who knows when it's time to walk away from a one-sided relationship; it's time. Though Maddie and Kyra have changed and grown through the series Avery and Nikki seem to have, if anything regressed; as human beings anyway. This book takes you through the same 'ol story, same 'ol song and dance the first three have. The challenges they face in finding the money for the project, the recalcitrance of the various property owners in committing to said project, and as usual the biggest obstacle they ever face themselves. Avery's mother Deidre died at the conclusion of book 3 so we don't have to listen to Avery dis her every 5 minutes. Seriously the woman took a bullet for her at the end of book 1. At one of the climatic scenes in the book, Nikki, a woman who never seems to learn anything about life or herself bleats because her love interest Joe the FBI agent doesn't trust her for some reason. Since at the moment this occurs she's just broken about a dozen laws to get money for her conman brother who spun a sad tale about his need for money and she ate it up like chocolate. On the personal side of the ledger she's 3 months pregnant and the only way he learns this is because the Feds are monitoring her credit card use. As a barometer of the silliness this author has sunk to in order to churn out another book Joe makes an abject apology for doubting her veracity. Then there is Maddie's ex hubby Steve, he is written in such a way that you just know that the end of the author's first marriage must have been a train wreck. When it comes to romance novels I'm that small town girl whose loyalty is fierce, I just wish it wouldn't get tested so severely by the genre's authors.
