REVIEW of Best Beach Ever by Wendy Wax

Paperback, 368 pages
Published May 22nd 2018 by Berkley

In the latest Ten Beach Road novel, Maddie, Nikki, and Avery all move into cottages at the Sunshine Hotel—and in this charming new location, begin to pursue daring new dreams.

After giving up their renovation-turned-reality-TV-show Do Over, the ladies of Ten Beach Road move into cottages at the Sunshine Hotel and turn their beloved Bella Flora over to its wealthy mystery tenant. Now, each woman will be forced to reexamine and redefine her life, relationships, and dreams.

My Thoughts...

Best Beach Ever is a perfect book to start my summer.   I want to go stay with Nikki, Kyra, and the rest of the wonderful women.    I want the beach sunsets with the women toasting their lives, the listening to the trials of their days, and to find the happiness they find with each other and in their lives together.   

There are many sub-stories that come together to tell the story of the Ten Beach Road ladies.    Anyone who reads should find at least one character they connect with.   There is great diversity in the characters.    Nikki is an older mom of twins who is overwhelmed with life but wanting to prove that she can handle it all.    Kyra is dealing with life as a single mom and an ex who is expecting more than she feels she can give.   Avery is afraid to commit to the man she loves.   Bitsy is a person who is looking for revenge on her ex-husband.  With each character, there was something I could relate to and could feel what they were feeling in life.   

This is a series.   The book can be read without reading the rest of the book in the series but I think the reader will miss some of the most special, important moments of the book if they don’t know the history of the characters.     The back stories are important to know why they are how they are now and what they truly need out to be happy.

  1. This sounds like a great summer read. Susan reviewed it on my blog and I was a little jealous she got to read it.
