*** GIVEAWAY CLOSED ***
Midlife crisis come in all shapes and sizes.
You know summer is close, when a new Wendy Wax, novel is published! ONE GOOD THING (Berkley) is being called one of summer’s must reads. This time, Maddie, Avery, Nikki and Kyra are at the end of their ropes and holding on tightly to their fraying friendships and relationships. It seems the girls are in a battle to regain control of their renovation-turned-reality show, “Do Over.” And if there’s anyway it’s going to be saved, the girls are going to have to work together. Once again, all the drama unfolds on one of Florida’s beautiful beaches – The Keys.
Maddie has put her mini-van life behind her and is dating “William The Wild,” an aging rock star topping billboard. But that annoying ex of hers, who lost everything, including his job to Malcolm Dyer’s Ponzi scheme, won’t leave the picture. Avery is trying to renovate a tiny cottage for an heiress who bankrolled their last “Do Over” fixer upper. She’s feeling closed off from partner, Chase Hardin won’t let her help when he deals with his difficult 16-year old son, Chase. Nikki, hugely pregnant with twin daughters hardly recognizes herself when she’s put on bed rest. But she has hubby, Special Agent, Joe Giraldi reading “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” and counting the days until he’s a new daddy. Maddie’s daughter Kyra, is single mom to 3-year old Dustin and he’s looking more and more like his famous father. Kyra is secretly behind the possibility of “Do Over,” being done. But there is one option available, so they get the needed money. Her son’s father is willing to cough up the cash, but there are strings attached … a lot of them.
The ONE GOOD THING you can always count on from Wendy Wax is the power of female friendship, drama, laughter and a good read guaranteed to hook you from page one. I suggest a pitcher of margaritas would be the perfect drink to sip, while enjoying Maddie, Avery, Nikki and Kyra’s … adventure!
Wendy’s fiction explores friendship, loyalty, self-discovery and the seemingly insurmountable challenges life sometimes presents. Born in St. Petersburg, Florida, she grew up on St. Pete Beach. Not surprisingly, some of her favorite Florida beaches were destined to become settings for her best-selling fiction.
The mother of a toddler and a newborn when she first decided to write, Wendy admits it may not have been the best timing in terms of productivity. “I’m still not certain why I felt so compelled to write my first novel at that particular time,” she says, “but that first book took forever.” Since then, she’s written ten others and an e-book original novella.
When not writing, Wendy visits with readers at bookstores and book events, reads, enjoys her and her husband’s newly empty nest and catches up with her sons on the serendipitous occasions when everyone ends up in the same place at the same time.
