CHANGE OF SCENE by Mary Kay Andrews
Greer Hennessy is a movie location scout whose latest project has literally gone up in flames. After an avocado field accidentally catches fire on the set of her new movie, she is out of a job and practically run out of town.
With her feisty grandmother Dearie, a Golden Age starlet who still has a lot of vigor left in her, complicating her life, Greer needs a bit of a rest. But Greer's own mother then drops a bombshell on her that will change Greer's life completely, and raise questions about her own father that she can't ignore.
In desperate need of a second chance, can Greer find what she's looking for in the one last job she can get: a movie called BEACH TOWN? But first, she needs to find the perfect spot...
Oh my gosh, I love these ladies, what a great cast of characters. Dearie is the spirited grandmother that gets kicked out of nursing homes. She refuses to stay with her daughter, Lise, while waiting for the next home to be found but she has agreed to stay with granddaughter, Greer. Put the three women together and you have a wonderful short story that leads to Mary Kay's new book, "BEACH TOWN". Fun, sassy, and a bit tearful at times. A great read.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
