Madeline, Avery, and Nikki are strangers to each other, but they have one thing in common. They each wake up one morning to discover their life savings have vanished, along with their trusted financial manager - leaving them with nothing but co-ownership of a ramshackle beachfront house.
Throwing their lots in together, they take on the challenge of restoring the historic property. But just as they begin to reinvent themselves and discover the power of friendship, secrets threaten to tear down their trust - and destroy their lives a second time.

"The sexual magnetism between the bickering Chase and Avery, and a secret that Nicole keeps from her newfound friends, add dramatic tension to Wax's formulaic plot, showcasing three women who rise above their shattered realities with grace, determination, and a little elbow grease."

At first I wasn't sure, but as I listened, I became more interested in hearing about Avery, Nicole & Madeline. I am familiar with all the locations in the book.
I would like to read more of her books.
Yes, it was interesting!
I could relate to Madeline. I am in the same age group & can relate to her circumstances.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this selection. I liked how the relationships built between the characters while they were working on restoring the old house. The characters had depth and the storytelling was great. I also loved The Accidental Bestseller, and am eager to try some of the other books by this author.
Wendy Wax - yes!
Amy Rubinate - Never again.
This narrator is stilted and to fast. It was impossible to listen to and a waste of a credit.
