Ocean Beach | [Wendy Wax]

Ocean Beach

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

At least, that's the plan - until the women realize that while having their work broadcast is one thing, having their personal lives play out on TV is another thing entirely. Soon they are struggling to hold themselves, and the project, together. With a decades-old mystery - and the hurricane season - looming, the women are forced to figure out just how they'll weather life's storms.

    "Wax has talent."
    What did you love best about Ocean Beach?

    I love the fact that this story has some substance to it, I was familiar with the characters AND the locations. I like books that I can listen to on my way home from work and I can escape into something I enjoy. I think I have a familiar background to Ms. Wax, since we are from the same area. I hope that more books are written using these characters. I LOVED reading about Max and the Millicent. I've been through those awful hurricanes.


    What other book might you compare Ocean Beach to and why?

    Ten Beach Road- this is book is the reason why I read this book.


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

    Yes... I like her voice.


    If you could take any character from Ocean Beach out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Any of them. I probably could relate to Maddie the most, being a parent.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Max's personality and the fact that he was so attached to the baby. I felt Kira was sort of a brat.
