4 Good Thing Stars🥂 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Loved the ”good things” toasts in this book... we all need a group of women in our lives that will toast the good things we have going on🥂

This is the perfect book to read when sitting at the beach or wishing that you were... featuring a cast of strong women who really were there for one another.... this is the fifth book in the series, however it can be read as a standalone... although I was not lost I probably would have appreciated some of the backstory on some of these

I close Best Beach Ever by Wendy Wax with a sigh of satisfaction. I've had a few laugh out moments, wiped a tear away and generally loved being back with the women who form this strongly forged band of friendship.

So Maddie is still with rock star Will and finding her way in that relationship, and how will it affect her life at Mermaid Point and her beloved Kyra and Dustin.

Krya meanwhile is coping with being on the set of a movie with Dustin who as a four year old is playing the part of a son who

Enjoyable. Light. I wish Wax would do some research into how babies/children communicate because the inaccuracies in this area make me crazy. And the consistent use of subordinate clauses masquerading as complete sentences throws me for a loop. These are minor details, but they are irritating enough to make me cringe. Otherwise, I like the sisterhood; women supporting each other is so pleasant and something to which we should aspire.

Loved this book as much as the first five books in the series. You know the stories are good when you start seeing the characters in the story as real people in your life and can't wait to hear what's going on with them, cheering them on when they struggle and so on. Cannot wait to read book six in the series! ...more

I could have sworn that I read part of the "Ten Beach Road" series before this book. However, when I checked it out, I had not. Apparently, these characters are so well written that I felt comfortable with them right away which just gave me the impression I had spent time with them before.

There is lots going on in this book which focuses on a group of five friends who have lots of problems that they help each other with and through. There are a lot of obstacles along the way which include a Holl

Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

#6 in the series (are we counting the novella?) and I still look forward to these books. I probably relate most to Maddie but Avery is my favorite. I think its because every time I read these books I get an insane craving for the Laura Scudder’s puffy cheese things of my childhood in the royal blue bag (and no, Puffy Cheetohs will not do). It was wonderful to see Bitsy gr

A great ending to this story. Nice to see HEAs. There were times when I was so frustrated with all the women but Maddie. They whined, they drank and felt sorry for themselves. Very selfish personality types. I adored the ladies and their friendships. I loved the beach and all the side characters, but the woe is me attitude from Kyra, Nikki and Avery could wear your out lol

I will admit that of the Ten Beach Road series Best Beach Ever is only the 2nd one I've read after Ten Beach Road itself. I enjoyed the first one immensely, thoroughly engaged with the characters and their commitment to learning about each other as strangers and solving their collective problem.

Sadly, I thought Best Beach Ever was utterly BORING. When did these strong, competent ladies turn into whiners? Does author Wendy Wax get an outrageously high royalty for repeatedly mentioning "Ted Peters

I love a good beach read ... I am familiar with Wendy, I have yet to read any of her books so far, this is my 1st one. I loved it. I am new to the series ... I am so thinking when I get the chance I will start at the beginning ... to get more to these characters. I think you can read them separately but might enjoy the whole beginning to end kind of fill of them all. For me I really felt or could understand Nikki life more than the other ladies ... I could see their life and all but Nikki seemed ...more

Summer must be getting close because the women of Ten Beach Road are back at the beach with an entertaining new novel. I have only read the first two novels in this series and was a bit confused at times so I suggest that you read the series in order. That said, now I have the fun of going back to the beginning and reading all the adventures of the eclectic group of friends.

The group of friends in this book give us a bit of everything that bothers women - we have a mom trying to learn to live li

The lovely ladies of Ten Beach Road were back in Best Beach Ever–and every single one of them were facing a personal challenge of some sort. Written with Wendy Wax’s lush descriptions of Florida’s gorgeous beaches, her trademark mix of humor and drama, this proved to be one seriously heartfelt novel that will be difficult to top.

Wendy Wax didn’t pull any punches in this sixth installment in her super popular Ten Beach Road series. I’m not kidding when I

I finally got some resolution to all of the story lines that had not been sewed up in the previous book in the series. I really liked how the author summed it all up in the epilogue but yet I feel like there's room to open the series up again for further development if the author decides to do so. I liked listening to this book on audio. There were a lot of fun voices to listen to in this version. ...more

Best Beach Ever is the 6th entry in the Ten Beach Road series by Wendy Wax. According to Goodreads: “After giving up their renovation-turned-reality-TV-show Do Over, the ladies of Ten Beach Road move into cottages at the Sunshine Hotel and turn their beloved Bella Flora over to its wealthy mystery tenant. Now, each woman will be forced to reexamine and redefine her life, relationships, and dreams.” I enjoy beach reads and was looking forward to this one. However, in the first chapter there were ...more

My first introduction to this series, I loved Wendy Wax’s ability to create nuanced characters with relationships that felt plausible and possible, and she’s managed to carry that into this story, making the women compelling, intriguing and most of all, people you want to know. As the sixth in the series, I did expect that some of the background events may play into finding the friendships and progression difficult, but Wax gives just enough background to the characters, along with their own ful ...more

Best Beach Ever is a perfect book to start my summer. I want to go stay with Nikki, Kyra, and the rest of the wonderful women. I want the beach sunsets with the women toasting their lives, the listening to the trials of their days, and to find the happiness they find with each other and in their lives together.

There are many sub-stories that come together to tell the story of the Ten Beach Road ladies. Anyone who reads should find at least one character they connect with. There is great diversi

I really wanted to like this book. I was looking forward to a fun, light, summer read. But it turned out to be mostly depressing.

Every one of the main characters was dealing with some sort of life problem, and none of them were handling it well. It felt like they were all afraid of their own emotional shadows, and there was a lot of whining, whimpering, and out and out crying going on. As one was even told in the book, they all needed to ‘get a backbone.’ For that reason, I didn’t ever connect w

It is all about relationships -- those beginning, those ending, and those that are finding their new path.

Midway through the book, I was wondering if this was being set up as the last in the series since each character was reevaluating their life, their partner, and the directions that they wanted to go. It was not until the end, with the discovery of a new property, and a new financial backer, that I realized Wendy Wax was more than likely giving each character a “do-over” (which also happened

Best Beach Ever was a delightful conclusion to the Ten Beach Road series. This is Book #6 in the series and I strongly recommend that at least some of the previous books be read prior to reading this one, especially Book #1 - Ten Beach Road. This series tells the struggle several women must endure and how their friendship brings each of them through to their very own happily-ever-after. The core of this friendship circle is Maddie, who seems to help each one focus on the positives in their lives ...more

It’s always so much fun catching up with the ladies of ‘Ten Beach Road’. The sisterhood bond keeps getting stronger and the love and respect these women have for each other makes me long for the same bonds in my own life.

Maddie, Nikki, Avery, Kyra, and Bitsy are each at different roads in their life, and each are facing different problems, but each and every one of them come out from the challenges as a stronger, better person a ...more
