When Ann Rutherford's husband dumps her for the bimbo in his office, unfairly leaving her without a home or a job, she reluctantly joins forces with Rhonda DelMonte to convert Rhonda's Florida seaside estate into the small upscale hotel it once was. Ann, quiet and reserved, is no match for brash, bossy Rhonda, who left the family's New Jersey butcher business after she won the Florida lottery.

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

I read the book and have now been listening to the audio version while I drive.
I look forward to listening to Lunch and Dinner at the Beach House Hotel.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Many great characters -- but, having been divorced - I found Ann's situation compeling.

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

Angela portrays the voices of the characters much as I heard them myself when reading this book.
I especially liked her portrayal of Rhonda

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

OH -- If only there was time to sit down and listen to this in several longer sessions. It would be very easy to listen to Angela for longer lengths of time - and the story holds your interest well.
