This 100 page prequel novella to Mary Kay Andrews’s bestselling novel Beach Town is sure to delight fans and new readers alike.
Greer Hennessy is a movie location scout whose latest project has literally gone up in flames. After an avocado field accidentally catches fire on the set of her new movie, she is out of a job and practically run out of town. With her feisty grandmother Dearie, a Golden Age starlet who still has a lot of vigor left in her, complicating her life, Greer needs a bit of a rest. But Greer’s own mother then drops a bombshell on her that will change Greer’s life completely, and raise questions about her own father that she can’t ignore. In desperate need of a second chance, can Greer find what she’s looking for in the one last job she can get: a movie called BEACH TOWN? But first, she needs to find the perfect spot…
First of all…lightening fast read. Of course, it is a novella!
This started a little slow for me. But, in true MKA fashion, the story twists and turns and soon the reader is enveloped into the plot and there is no turning back.
Greer has made a huge mistake as a movie location scout. And as a result, she looses her job. This leaves her NO MONEY but plenty of time to reconnect with her family.
Dearie is her grandmother and BOY is she a pistol. After getting kicked out of one nursing home, Greer must find her a new place to live. On top all this, Greer finds out her mother has cancer.
I love MKA! All her books are awesome. Great characters, funny and serious all at the same time. This mix is classic MKA and extremely entertaining. I have met her a few times and she is as magnificent as her books.
This is a prequel to MKA’s novel Beach Town. Beach Town will be released in paperback on May 3, 2016.
I received this book from Netgalley for a honest review
