Reviews

Three girlfriends share a month of frolicking, romance, and self-discovery on North Carolina's Outer Banks until the arrival of a fourth roommate ratchets up the drama. Andrews excels at creating relatable characters and has a wicked sense of humor. (LJ 5/1/11) (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Andrews (Savannah Blues) spins a beach blanket sizzler around three lifelong friends who grew up together in Savannah-unemployed banker Ellis, model Julia, teacher Dorie-and reunite in Nags Head, N.C., for a month-long holiday at a rundown rental elegantly named the Ebbtide. But when the 30-somethings BFFs, each of whom is struggling with life-changing crises, take in Maryn, a stranger and runaway-wife, the beachy holiday takes on a dangerous edge. To the rescue comes handsome landlord Ty, who's renting out his ramshackle family home in hopes of staving off foreclosure. Amid all the romantic entanglements-Julia with her marriage-phobia, love-shy Ellis, and Dorie with her truckload of drama-Andrews pulls off an exciting tale of Maryn's abusive embezzler husband. This warm weather treat has a lot going for it, not least the sunny forecast that summer love can blossom into a four-season commitment. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

"Narrator Isabel Keating makes the most of the material, giving each character a distinctive Southern accent, fitting for these girls from Savannah. Recommended for Andrews's fans and those wishing some light fair." --Library Journal

"For a group of girls on a roadtrip, this is the perfect way to pass the time." --Smitten with Reading

"Isabel Keating's treatment of dialogue enhances the characters in this easy summer read...The over-the-top dialect of some of the minor characters combined with some amusing scenes give the listener some laughs that balance the challenging choices the main players face. The dialogue and individual characterizations make this especially good on audio." --AudioFile Magazine

"Andrews...is at her warm and funny best...[she] simply excels at creating the kind of characters readers can relate to, and she has a fabulous sense of humor to boot." --Library Journal (starred review)

..".this is prime beach-read material" --Daily Record (Gannett Newspapers)
