It’s almost summer and that means it’s time to hit the beach…  Or think about hitting the beach… Or just read a great new book with that takes place at a beach.  (And has “beach” in the title!)

Without further ado, I am proud to announce our book club selection for May:  TEN BEACH ROAD by Wendy Wax.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

Another perfect beach read from the author of The Accidental Bestseller.

Madeline, Avery, and Nikki are strangers to each other, but they have one thing in common. They each wake up one morning to discover their life savings have vanished, along with their trusted financial manager- leaving them with nothing but co-ownership of a ramshackle beachfront house.

Throwing their lots in together, they take on the challenge of restoring the historic property. But just as they begin to reinvent themselves and discover the power of friendship, secrets threaten to tear down their trust-and destroy their lives a second time.
