Always a fun time with southern charmer, Mary Kay Andrews and of course, love the Florida setting and the front cover.
BEACH TOWN is a "must" for your beach bag for some summertime fun. Highly recommend the audio, narrated by the fabulous Kathleen McInerney for hours of laugh out loud entertainment!
Mary Kay Andrews is back with her southern lovable humor and sass with BEACH TOWN, for a summer sizzling beach read of family, drama, and romance, assured to warm your heart.
Set in Florida panhandle, Greer is a movie scout, and finding the perfect spot for the big screen is her specialty; especially after her last project. She is given another chance to make things right and she knows if she can find the perfect undiscovered gem beach hideaway, she will score and save her reputation.
When she discovers Cypress Key, a laid back Florida beach town, she thinks she has found the idea spot for a big-budget movie. With a marina, a motel, an old fishing pier with a community casino, and miles of pristine beach –this has to be a winner.
Unfortunately, as typical in a small town, they do not like outsiders. Cypress Key is no exception. Eben, the town mayor is against Greer’s plans. He wears many hats and runs the town. He is all for revitalizing the town and does not want it to be turned into a commercialized circus.
After a paper plant closed, they finally are cleaning up the mess, so he does not need this gal coming in to do more destruction. However, Greer is driven and determined to change his mind. To make things worse, with two strong personalities on opposite sides, they also have chemistry and a strong attraction.
To further complicate matters, Greer is dealing with a director and a spoiled leading man, testing her limits. As she is challenged with one obstacle after another, she begins to learn something about herself and the town. At the same time, she may find her own love story.
A long- time fan of Atlanta’s Mary Kay Andrews/Kathy Hogan Trocheck, having read all her books, and anxiously await the next- always humor mixed with a heartwarming tale. I listened to the audiobook, and as always Mary Kay Andrews and Kathleen McInerney are a match made in southern heaven. Full of humor, wit, and sass for hours of listening entertainment.
As a Florida resident, this town reminded me so much of
Lake Worth Beach Complex (Palm Beach County), with its motels, old pier, diners, beach, shops, restaurants, and its old casino (which by the way has just been renovated in 2013).
Don’t forget to pack BEACH TOWN, for your summer reading pleasure! Why you are packing, load up with some of her back list - the queen of southern charm and mischief.
