Ann Rutherford's and Rhonda DelMonte Grayson's lives continue to be full of surprises as they run The Beach House Hotel, their small upscale hotel on the Gulf Coast in Southwest Florida. Things heat up when Tina Marks (Valentina Marquis, a famous young movie star) is sent to the hotel in secret to lose 25 pounds in eight weeks for her next starring role. As much as Ann and Rhonda want to help Tina succeed, the hotel is known for its delicious food as well as its promise of anonymity, and Tina is impossible to deal with.

What did you love best about Lunch at the Beach House Hotel?

The continuation of the story from the first audio book and how Angie and Rhonda manage difficult guests, a hurricane, and a wedding.

What did you like best about this story?

The close relationship of Angie and Rhonda with their daughters.

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

Yes, Breakfast at the Beach House Hotel. This audiobook rates as well as the previous one. I am amazed that Angela can change her voice to fit the characters in the book.

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

Yes. But it took 2 sittings to listen to the complete book

Any additional comments?

Love the series. It took me a while to get accustomed to listening to a book instead of reading. I can't wait for the third book, Dinner at the Beach House Hotel to be released!

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.
