Book Review: One Good Thing by Wendy Wax

Pre-Order Available - Release date is April 25, 2017

About the Book:

From the USA Today bestselling author of Sunshine Beach, a story of four women trying to rebuild more than their lives...

Before you can fix it up, you might have to tear it down...

Embroiled in a battle to regain control of their renovation-turned-reality TV show, Do Over, Maddie, Avery, Nikki, and Kyra find themselves holding tight to the frayed ends of their friendship and relationships. 

Maddie must face the realities of dating a rock star once again topping the charts and deal with her hapless ex-husband, while Avery is caught up in family drama even as she attempts to transform a tiny cottage into a home for the newly impoverished heiress who helped bankroll their last renovation. Put on bedrest, a hugely pregnant Nikki can’t quite believe love can last, or trust in her own maternal instinct. And Kyra, who has secretly put Bella Flora at risk in an attempt to salvage Do Over, must decide whether to accept a desperately needed bail out from her son’s famous father that comes with far too many strings attached…
But friendship is made for times like these, to keep each other—and their dreams—from crumbling.

My Thoughts:

Wendy Wax has once again dropped me smack dab in the middle of a beach scene.  Her description of the setting throughout this book is so enticing I can almost feel the breeze through my hair and the smell of the salt air.

Like the other books in this series, we follow the lives of this group of women who have all struggled through hardships but ban together to become a strong support group and each one finds their inner strength to carry on.

The main focus of this book is on Nikki and her pregnancy with twins, her relationship with Joe and his family, and the birth of her babies.  Maddie is there to offer good solid relationship advice and she learns to take her own advice as well.  New situations occur with Avery and her relationship with Chase, and the struggle Kyra is forced to face with the possibility of losing Bella Flora.  Bitsy Baynard, after losing her fortune when her husband Bertrand takes off with an exotic dancer, ends up joining the ladies because she has nowhere else to go.  Bitsy, too, finds that inner strength to move on with her life.

There is romance in this book.  Lots of romance.  The tender, sweet kind of romance that sets tingles down your spine but without making you blush (I love tingles!).

After reading Ten Beach Road, I was anxious to read more in this series by Wendy Wax.  Although I missed one book in the series before reading One Good Thing, I was able to follow along the story line with no problems.  But I enjoyed it so much that as soon as I finished reading this book, I ordered the one I missed, The House on Mermaid Point.  They have all been great and Wendy Wax is an author I plan to follow.

So, go read the other books in this series now before this one is released in April of 2017.
