Ocean Beach by Wendy Wax Wendy Wax always makes me laugh.  And she always makes me care.  That’s why her books are impossible to put down AND why they are summer favorites year after year.

Her latest book OCEAN BEACH is no exception.  With some laugh out loud moments, Wendy’s memorable characters Maddie, Nicole and Avery from TEN BEACH ROAD return to renovate another dilapidated beachfront property while hoping for a do-over in their own lives as well.  This time however, the property’s owner has a dark secret and his own agenda and the women discover that what they thought was a pilot for a home and garden television show is actually a reality show and the network has plans to film them 24/7.

Of course, as with all of Wendy’s books, in between the laughs there is plenty of “real” stuff for book clubs to dig in to.  For example:  Could you live your life, even for a few months, in front of a national television audience?  Would you be willing to forgive a mother who abandoned you as a child  but now wants to come back into your life?  Could a marriage go back to how it was before troubled financial times?  And the list goes on.

Wendy sat down with me the week the book came out to talk about some of these weightier issues, along with the fun stuff and what it was like for her to write her first-ever sequel.

As always, I hope you enjoy the interview… and be sure to check out the rest of the author interview series on iTunes![podcast]
