On My Bookshelf [Beach Town]

You can always count on Mary Kay Andrews for a fun beach (or pool, if you're in Indiana) read.  While Beach Town isn't my favorite of her works, it was still a easy read, perfect for a sunny summer book!

Amazon says:
Greer Hennessy is a struggling movie location scout.  Her last location shoot ended in disaster when a film crew destroyed property on an avocado grove.  And Greer ended up with the blame.

Now Greer has been given one more chance --a shot at finding the perfect undiscovered beach town for a big budget movie.  She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida panhandle town.  There's one motel, a marina, a long stretch of pristine beach and an old fishing pier with a community casino --which will be perfect for the film's climax --when the bad guys blo it up in an all-out assault on the townspeople.

Greer slips into town and is ecstatic to find the last unspoilt patch of the Florida gulf coast.  She takes a room at the only motel in town, and starts working her charm.  however, she finds a formidable obstacle in the town mayor Eben Thinadeaux.  Eben is a born-again environmentalist who's seen huge damage done to the town by a huge paper company.  The bay has only recently been re-born, a fishing industry has sprung up, and Eben has no intntion of letting anybody screw with his town again.  The only problem is he finds Greer way too attractive for his own good, and knows that her motivation is in direct conflict with his.

Will true love find a foothold in this small beach town before it's too late and disaster strikes?  Told with Mary Kay Andrews inimatable wit and charm, Beach Town is this year's summer beach read!

As always, I'd love to know what's on  your bookshelf!!  Anything I should be sure not to miss?

Happy Reading!
