I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Ocean Beach by Wendy Wax
Published by Jove on June 25th 2013
The ladies from Ten Beach Road are back! We first met these “extreme home makeover” ladies in Ten Beach Road.
Nicole still has money problems and Maddie’s marriage may or may not be in trouble, she isn’t quite sure . Avery is still trying to reestablish herself as a serious architect while she is forced to work with Deirdre, the mother who abandoned her at a young age.
Kyra is back, Maddie’s young daughter who is a single Mom due to a celebrity affair that was in all the tabloids!
Before I go any further if you have not read Ten Beach Road you do not need to in order to enjoy this novel. Although I would recommend it as a good beach read.
These ladies have a new reality show called “Do-Over” and have been hired to make over a once grand mansion in Miami’s South Beach area. Meet Max (one of my favorite characters) the 90-year-old charming homeowner and ex-vaudeville entertainer. Max has a decades old mystery that needs to be solved.
Nicole, Maddie, Avery and Kyra soon find out reality television is intrusive, has a shooting schedule that is not in their control and is covering more than just the remodel on the house. The producers of the show want to cover Kyra’s celebrity tabloid problems!
I like the parallel, the ladies re-do homes and try to re-do their lives at the same time. This book has a little bit of everything, romance, comedy, mystery, drama and a lot of southern charm!
The setting ,the somewhat quirky characters and all of their drama make this a fun book to read.<a href=”http://cindysbookbinge.com/2016/05/ocean-beach-by-wendy-wax/” target=”_blank”>This review was originally posted on </a>
