Hey there, friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Below you will find my review for the book Sunset Beach by Mary Kay Andrews. Before that is a description from the publisher, and following will be my star rating.
From the publisher :
Pull up a lounge chair and have a cocktail at Sunset Beach – it comes with a twist.
Drue Campbell’s life is adrift. Out of a job and down on her luck, life doesn’t seem to be getting any better when her estranged father, Brice Campbell, a flamboyant personal injury attorney, shows up at her mother’s funeral after a twenty-year absence. Worse, he’s remarried – to Drue’s eighth grade frenemy, Wendy, now his office manager. And they’re offering her a job.
It seems like the job from hell, but the offer is sweetened by the news of her inheritance – her grandparents’ beach bungalow in the sleepy town of Sunset Beach, a charming but storm-damaged eyesore now surrounded by waterfront McMansions.
With no other prospects, Drue begrudgingly joins the firm, spending her days screening out the grifters whose phone calls flood the law office. Working with Wendy is no picnic either. But when a suspicious death at an exclusive beach resort nearby exposes possible corruption at her father’s firm, she goes from unwilling cubicle rat to unwitting investigator, and is drawn into a case that may – or may not – involve her father. With an office romance building, a decades-old missing persons case re-opened, and a cottage in rehab, one thing is for sure at Sunset Beach: there’s a storm on the horizon.
Sunset Beach is a compelling ride, full of Mary Kay Andrews’ signature wit, heart, and charm.
My review :
As ever, this was another book by Mary Kay Andrews that did not disappoint.
Sunset Beach is full of mystery, romance and murder. Drue is the star of the show, and she is just a delight. Not willing to take no for an answer, she ventures out to piece together what really happened the night a heinous crime was committed.
The way this book ties together in the end was really well written. I hope that you get a chance to read this one. She is one of my go-to authors when I’m itching to just sit down and finish a book in one sitting. This was no exception.
