Unlikely friends Madeline, Avery and Nicole have hit some speed bumps in their lives, but when they arrive in Miami's South Beach neighborhood, they are all hoping for a do-over. Literally. They've been hired to bring a once-grand historic house back to its former glory on a new television show called Do-Over. If they can just get this show off the ground, Nikki would get back on her feet financially, Avery could restart her ruined career, and Maddie would have a shot at keeping her family together.At least, that's the plan-until the women realize that while having their work broadcast is one thing, having their personal lives play out on TV is another thing entirely. Soon they are struggling to hold themselves, and the project, together. With a decades-old mystery-and the hurricane season-looming, the women are forced to figure out just how they'll weather life's storms. Download and start listening now!

    " Great sequel to Ten Beach Road. Again, predictable, but the way life goes sometimes, I like to be able to predict something that actually turns out that way! Easy read. A few twists for added interest. Plot doesn't consume you but keeps your interest. "

    " Light read Continuation of 10 Beach Road Draggy in places Seemed like there were times the author was just filling pages with unnecessary words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 10/28/2013

    " I am hoping there is a third in the series. The ending still left too many loose ends for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayle | 6/17/2013

    " This one took me a little longer then usual because I kept stopping to read library books. However, it was really, really, good. Every bit as yummy as 10 Beach Road and it seemed like she left it so that another book could be added on. I hope so! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqueline Sandel | 5/29/2013

    " I really liked this book! There were a lot of interesting stories of the people that are brought together to renovate a once beautiful home of earlier years. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 5/24/2013

    " Not a BAD book but it's not that good either. Has nothing to do with the beach (although they are NEAR the beach) so the title makes no sense. The story was predictable and well...boring. "

    " Not quite as much fun nor as endearing as the prequel to this; a bit too repetitive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/14/2012

    " Liked getting to revisit these characters again, but thought their conflicts were better in Ten Beach Road. Ending made me think there may be another book in the series??? "
