Come hell or high water, Emmy Jo Massey will have a wedding. After three generations of Massey women with children out of wedlock, she wants the whole town of Hickory, Texas, to witness the legitimacy of her union with Logan Grady. But dream weddings aren't cheap. So she accepts a highly lucrative stint as a home health assistant to retired realtor, and town recluse, Seth Thomas - a decision her great-grandmother Tandy is dead-set against.

I could not believe how will Brittany Pressley performed all the different voices. She was really great. She brought to life the full story. If I would have read this, I would not have gotten as much out of it as I would have in the audible. Thank you!

The Beach House Hotel, the seaside mansion Ann Rutherford and Rhonda Del Monte converted to an upscale boutique hotel, continues to be a success. Not only is it the spot for breakfast and lunch, it's become the "in" place for dinner. However, they still face many challenges. With the sudden death of Robert and Kandie, Ann and Vaughn decide to raise their son, Robbie, to help relieve Ann's daughter, Liz, of the responsibility she thought she'd never have. And Rhonda becomes both a mother and grandmother.

Would you listen to Dinner at the Beach House Hotel again? Why?

Yes. I would listen to the whole series again. All three books were great and the reader is the best reader of any books I have listened to, which is a lot of books.

What did you like best about this story?

The stories in all three were very realistic not only in their personal and love relationships, with all of the problems the hotel owners faced in their daily operating routines.

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

She is an exceptional reader! She brought the different personalities out, using different accents and "voices" for the characters. You wouldn't get those differences if you read the book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some laughing, and some dreading, like "Oh, no! What are they going to do now?" And then wondering how they are going to solve the problem(s).

Any additional comments?

I hope there will be more in this series about the lives of the characters since the third book, of course, keeping the same reader, Angela Dawe.

For Emily Tate, returning to her charming childhood home, Oyster Bay, is like coming up for air after the fast pace of her city life. At the farm her grandfather built, surrounded by sister Rachel's chatter, Gram's buttermilk biscuits, and the soft, white sand, Emily is reminded of exactly who she is and what she holds most dear. When Emily starts working at the elegant Water's Edge Inn, Charles Peterson, the handsome new owner, asks for her help. He wants to expand and needs Emily to teach him the local ways, so he can convince the planning commission.
