In desperate need of a second chance, can Greer find what she’s looking for in the one last job she can get: a movie called BEACH TOWN? But first, she needs to find the perfect spot… (publisher)
My mini review: If you haven’t read Beach Town, Mary Kay Andrew’s most recent novel, you’ll want to read Change of Scene first. It covers the weeks leading up to Beach Town and gives a little more texture to Greer’s background.
If you’re like me and read Beach Town last year you’ll enjoy revisiting Greer’s story. I enjoyed it and recommend it to fans of the author. My thanks to the publisher for sending a review galley to me.
