    Unlikely friends Madeline, Avery, and Nicole have hit some speed bumps in their lives, but when they arrive in Miami's South Beach neighborhood, they are all hoping for a do-over. Literally. They've been hired to bring a once-grand historic house back to its former glory on a new television show called Do-Over. If they can just get this show off the ground, Nikki would get back on her feet financially, Avery could restart her ruined career, and Maddie would have a shot at keeping her family together.

    What made the experience of listening to Ocean Beach the most enjoyable?

    wendy wax did an amazing job of portraying each woman's point of view and made it very easy to relate to their struggles. when they experience a win, i felt like i somehow experienced it, too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ocean Beach?

    i don't want to give anything away, but the scene in the mansion when max risks everything for kyra's son. we also see how different nicole is now in comparison to the first book.


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

    I listen to audio books when I walk the dog and do chores around the house. I cleaned the garage so that I could keep listening...


    Any additional comments?

    The women in this book are all so different. They grow to love one another and it is really fun seeing their relationship evolve.

    Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she's made over the past decade of her life. Julia—whose caustic wit covers up her wounds—has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can't hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life.

    What made the experience of listening to Summer Rental the most enjoyable?

    The three women in Summer Rental are so different and lead totally different lives. However, the summer brings them back together and shows the true bonds of their friendship. The strange woman they let into their lives slowly develops into a bigger character and the transformation is exciting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ellis is the character I relate most to, so I enjoyed her parts of the book the best. She isn't one of those characters who is stubborn from the get-go and refuses to live her life the way she wants.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene at the very end of the book where all the characters go after Don was both hilarious and suspenseful. I can't say any more or I will ruin the story.

But when the bride goes missing and the wedding is in jeopardy, Cara must find the bride and figure out what she believes in. Maybe love really does exist outside of fairy tales after all. Told with Mary Kay Andrews' trademark wit and keen eye for detail, mark your calendars for Save the Date!

    Would you listen to Save the Date again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to Save the Date again. The narration was flawless and the story was great. I couldn't stop listening and was disappointed when it was finished.


    What does Kathleen McInerney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love listening to audio books, but Kathleen McInerney is the best narrator I have experienced thus far. I felt like I was part of Kara's world as I listened.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a perfect audio book for summer. It is carefree and light.
