Maddie, Nikki and Avery trade their familial, posh and plush lifestyles for a summer of sleeping on mattresses on the hardwood, dusty floors, sharing one bathroom and shopping in discounted bulk without even so much as the comfort of a guarantee that their hard work will even pay off come September. But what choice do they really have?
If anyone knows the meaning of the saying “when it rains, it pours”, it’s these three women. As if their financial ruin and the daunting task ahead of them weren’t enough, each woman has plenty of baggage they carry with them to
. Madeleine deals with a depressed husband, a pregnant daughter and a son who’s just lost his entire college scholarship. Avery, an HGTV celeb, known more for her looks than her architectural education, has just been booted from her own Hammer and Nail TV show only to be replaced by her pompous ex-husband. Finally, Nicole lost her entrepreneurial, A-list, match-making business and now there’s an FBI agent following her every move from Florida California to . None of the women dares to tell anyone their secrets, but after a few weeks of living in confined quarters, a few skeletons are bound to fall out of someone’s closet. Florida
This was my first Wendy Wax novel and I loved it. I especially enjoyed the set up of the story, beginning with the overarching prologue and then how she introduced readers to each of the main women, one by one, living their separate, unique lives at the same point in time. The story reaches a crossroads when they all venture down to
to check out their shared ownership of Bella Flora. From there, even more excitement, action and predicaments ensue. Florida
Ten Beach Road is a definite must read for summer. Friendship, marriage, family, fidelity, hard work and facing adversity are just a few of the themes you will find throughout the novel. It’s the perfect beach bag accessory or even a reliable read over a rainy weekend. You’ll feel like you’re racing through the book right alongside the women as they hammer away ‘til Labor Day.
