Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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." ( Publishers Weekly)

Terrible narrator

The book would have been a great, easy fun listen except the narration was terrible. Very monotone, hard to get through. I kept wanting to turn it off, but the story line was fun. I will not listen to anymore by this narrator.

Pick Yourself Up and Dust Yourself Off

Any additional comments?

Three women from different lives and backgrounds lose everything they have. Together, different though they are, they must band together to protect and rebuild the only asset any of them has. What a journey! Mother Maddie, Worker Avery, and High Flyer Nicole couldn't be more different. What a wonderful adventure to watch them work together as they are joined by other characters to rebuild Bella Flora .... and their own lives.

Narration was like listening to Siri for 12hrs

Great story and characters although I was in purgatory wading through the absolute worst narrator of my 20yrs on Audible

Learning to live with what you are handed!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes and No! There was some bad language is this book. I do not like it!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ten Beach Road?

The friendships developed by the characters in this story. I read the second book before the first so I knew a little bit about the first book. They had to work hard on remodeling the property. At my age I don't know if I could have. Takes me back to the saying 'Where there is a will There is a way".

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

Yes, because they were all trying to achieve the same goal. Get some of their money back that was stolen from them. All the while trying to keep their family from falling a part.

Who was the most memorable character of Ten Beach Road and why?

She did a very good job of making the different characters come alive.

Any additional comments?

A pretty good read minus language.

Cute story, bad narration

Cute, fun story. Great beach read. The narration was very difficult to get through. Breathe and monotone at the same time, the narration distracted from a fun story. No different voices for different characters. No real inflection or change of pace. I almost stopped listening right off the bat, but I was able to get through the first chapter so I just kept going.

Loved it!!!

I loved this story, the characters and location. I got totally absorbed to the point I felt a part of the story and these were friends I've known for years. A feel good story I enjoyed very much. Wendy Wax you are a wonderful author! Can't wait to start the next book.

Loved it

I thought this was great. The performance was annoying at times…sounding very robotic…but I don’t know how good I’d be at narrating so I can’t be too critical. The character voices were fine. I can’t wait to listen to the other books in the series. I’ll probably have to purchase credits because I go through the books pretty quickly.
