Overview

Wendy Wax, author of Ten Beach Road, returns with a novel of three women in need of a second chance . . . or is it a third?
 
When unlikely friends Madeline, Avery, and Nicole arrive in Miami’s South Beach neighborhood, they’re hoping for a do-over. Literally. They’ve been hired to bring a 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 could fix her finances, Avery could restart her career, and Maddie would have a shot at keeping her family together.
 
The women quickly realize that having their work broadcast is one thing, but having their personal lives play out on TV is another. Soon they’re struggling to hold themselves, and the project, together. With a decades-old mystery—and hurricane season—looming, the women are forced to figure out just how they’ll weather life’s storms . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wax returns readers to characters Madeline, Avery, Nikki, and Kyra of Ten Beach Road. After their successful renovation of the dilapidated beachfront mansion Bella Flora, the four friends land a TV show focusing on the renovation of a ramshackle architectural treasure owned by a former vaudeville star with a secret past. With a few boundaries drawn (no one can film Dustin, Kyra’s son with movie star Daniel Deranian; mom and son get some private time), cameras roll. But Deranian’s return to town to shoot a movie immediately tests those boundaries, especially as his furious wife is threatening to get their show canceled if she’s not given full custody of Dustin. Meanwhile, Avery and her mother Deidre try to repair a broken relationship, and Nikki works on her matchmaking business and begins a relationship with a handsome G-man. When a client seems more interested in recovering money stolen by her brother than in Nikki’s services, however, things quickly heat up. The foursome gets fine support from a well-rounded supporting cast and just the right amount of suspense and drama for a beach read. Agent: Stephanie Rostan, Levine Greenberg Literary Agency. (July)
