Not my usual type of book. A couple of the interactions between some of the characters were I felt contrived but an entertaining read none the less. ( )

This was an engaging but thoroughly ridiculous book. I enjoyed it so much that I'm reading the sequel. So far it seems equally engaging and ridiculous. What else could you ask for when you want entertainment? ( )

Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax
Contemporary women’s fiction. 1st in the Ten Beach Road series.
Three women, each having lost their life savings to a Ponzi scheme, inherit a portion of a beach house. Together, they decide to repair and renovate the house while dealing with life issues as a result of the changes in their lives.

Managing life issues is no easy task. This book is at times heartbreaking, disquieting, and life affirming. The women are strong survivors and determined and that’s what makes this story worth reading.

Cute storyline, I feel like I've read a few stories like this and enjoyed them. A group of strangers have their savings stolen and wind up with nothing to show for it but a run down beach house. If they sell the house as is, they won't get nearly as much money as they could if they work on the house and sell it afterwards.

Madeline's story is the most bleak at the moment. She finds out her husband lost his job six months ago without telling her, her mother-in-law moves in with them, her son announces he's at risk of failing out of college and her daughter is pregnant.
Her husband goes into a depression and Madeline realizes her only choice is to remodel the house with two strangers and hope the profits will save them all.

The characters are likable but for whatever nit-picky reason, it bugged me that the names kept alternating between names and nicknames. Sometimes she's Madeline, sometimes she's Maddie, sometimes there's Nicole, sometimes Nikki.
Maybe it wouldn't have been as noticeable to me if it weren't within the same paragraph.

I didn't think the love interests were super likable either, Chase seemed unfair to Avery and Madeline's husband was really not there for her.

I liked best the parts of the story showing the characters becoming friends and their cute, low key evenings. ( )
