Are you ready for the latest adventure from Mary Kay Andrews? Thank you to St. Martins Press and Tandem Literary for a copy of Beach Town. This novel was given to me in exchange for an honest review. Now onto the novel!
Greer Hennessey is a Location Manager for the motion picture industry. The title of the picture is Beach Town. Now to find that Beach Town and will fulfill the director’s vision. She stumbles upon Cypress Key a down on its luck town in Northern Florida. Small towns are nothing like working in the big city. How successful will Greer be in getting the locations she wants for the movie shoot? One morning she meets the mayor of the town Eben Thibodaux who does not make it easy for her to accomplish her goals. Will they agree on anything?
Another great summer read by Mary Kay Andrews! I enjoyed reading about what it is like to work on a movie set. The author made it seem like such an easy position to work as a Location Manager. A great job with creating great characters that is memorable and lovable.
Now whenever you read a Mary Kay Andrews setting is key. Earlier this year I remember her asking on Facebook about a good beach town for the setting for this novel. I have to say that Cypress Key is an interesting location.
The plot lines in this novel explore what it is like to work on a movie set. How to work with celebrity personalities. Finally what will bring the main character into a state she can make changes that are ultimately desired.
All in All a great read!
