Friday Feature and Giveaway – A Fun Summer Read

Beach Town by Mary Kay Andrews

It hit 100 degrees yesterday in my backyard so it’s officially summer for me. And a perfect way to kickoff the summer reading season is with a copy of Mary Kay Andrews newest release, Beach Town. Courtesy of the publicist, I have one copy to give away to a reader with a US address. Just fill out the form below.

About the Book

BeachTownBeach Town

by Mary Kay Andrews
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Publication Date: May 2015
Format: Hardcopy | 448 pages

Greer Hennessy needs palm trees.

As a movie location scout, picture-perfect is the name of the game. But her last project literally went up in flames, and her career is on the verge of flaming out. Greer has been given one more chance, if she can find the perfect undiscovered beach hideaway for a big-budget movie. She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida panhandle town called Cypress Key. 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 explosive climax.

There’s just one problem. Eben Thibadeaux, the town mayor, completely objects to Greer’s plan. A lifelong resident of Cypress Key, Eben wants the town to be revitalized, not commercialized. After a toxic paper plant closed, the bay has only recently been reborn, and Eb has no intention of letting anybody screw with his town again. But Greer has a way of making things happen, regardless of obstacles. And Greer and Eb are way too attracted to each other for either of them to see reason.

Mary Kay Andrews’ Beach Town is the perfect summer destination.

  2. This has been on my TBR for a little while. It looks so perfectly beachy and Andrews is an author I’ve really been wanting to try.

    Her books are perfect summer reads – I liked this!
    I can’t believe it was so hot in your area. We’ve had 50s and 60s up here the past few days.

      I was inside working (I occasionally take freelance editing work from home) and I noticed the weather app on my phone said 103. I thought it was broken. So I went outside to see for myself and almost fainted! I loooove summer, but I prefer that it stays around 85-ish. I noticed you were getting all the storms the past few days. We got light rain here.
