A humorous and fast paced book that was completely entertaining. This is the prequel to Beach Town and gives wonderful insight into the main character Greer Hennessy. Greer is working as a movie location scout. Dealing with an out of control director is no easy feat and before Greer knows what happened, her set location and career are literally up in flames! Now jobless and desperate for a new one, poor Greer still has to deal with a Grandmother and Mother that could make any saint drink. She's finally given one last shot at her career if only she can find the perfect location...... A fun quick read that you don't want to miss. I recommend it.
Change Of Scene tells us of what Greer was up to before what happened in Beach Town. It starts out being a horrible day at work that forces her out of a job. As she deals with her eccentric grandmother named Dearie and her nursing home antics, and a mother who drops a major bombshell on her, nothing seems to be going right. When a new job shows up in Florida, it makes for the second chance that Greer needs at just the right time! If you read Beach Town, you definitely need to read this book, it gives you a deeper understanding of why Greer does what she does. I will warn you though, there might be a page that will make you shed a tear for Greer. I just discovered Mary Kay Andrews books last summer and you can bet that I will be reading whatever comes next for her even books this short, yes she's that great of an Author!
