Overview
"Wendy Wax, author of the "warm and] wry" ("St. Petersburg Times") "Ten Beach Road," returns with a novel of three women in need of a second chance...or is it a third? "
Unlikely friends Madeline, Avery and Nicole have hit some speed bumps in their lives, but when they arrive in Miami's South Beach neighborhood, they are all hoping for a do-over. Literally. They've been hired to bring a once-grand 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 would get back on her feet financially, Avery could restart her ruined career, and Maddie would have a shot at keeping her family together.
At least, that's the plan - until the women realize that having their work broadcast is one thing, having their personal lives play out on TV is another thing entirely. Soon they are struggling to hold themselves, and the project, together. With a decades-old mystery--and the hurricane season--looming, the women are forced to figure out just how they'll weather life's storms...

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.
