Description

In this new novel from the author of Ten Beach Road and Ocean Beach, three unlikely friends who were thrown together by disaster get a do-over on life, love, and happiness . . . 
Maddie, Avery, and Nikki first got to know one another—perhaps all too well—while desperately restoring a beachfront mansion to its former grandeur. Now they’re putting that experience to professional use. But their latest project has presented some challenges they couldn’t have dreamed up in their wildest fantasies—although the house does belong to a man who actually was Maddie’s wildest fantasy once . . .

Rock-and-roll legend “William the Wild” Hightower may be past his prime, estranged from his family, and creatively blocked, but he’s still worshiped by fans—which is why he guards his privacy on his own island in the Florida Keys. He’s not thrilled about letting this crew turn his piece of paradise into a bed-and-breakfast for a reality show . . . though he is intrigued by Maddie. Hard as that is for her to believe as a newly single woman who can barely manage a dog paddle in the dating pool.

But whether it’s an unexpected flirtation with a bona fide rock star, a strained mother-daughter relationship, or a sudden tragedy, these women are in it together. The only thing that might drive them apart is being trapped on a houseboat with one bathroom . . .

    This is the best of Wendy Wax's series about Nicole, Avery, Diedre, Maddie, and Kyra. I actually love these women, which shows the author's talent for characterization. As a writer myself, I am jealous. As a reader, I am very grateful. Looking very much forward to Sunshine Beach. Wendy, please keep writing.

    I loved this sorry and all of the characters. It was funny and sad, with a strong bond between the characters. It has great story lines for each character and you wish you had friends like these. I didn't know this book was part of a series until I finished it. I was sad to see the book come to an end, so this was a pleasant surprise. I definitely look forward to reading all the beach stories!

    I now have finished the series starting with Ten Beach Road and I have fallen in love with the characters that have been thrown together because of an unforeseen event that was not any of their faults. They all have grown through the series on their own as well as on me. Please continue writing about these wonderful women. A friend had recommended the books and I am so grateful that she did.
