Beach Town is about a woman who scouts locations for movies. The story follows her along as she finds the perfect little Florida town for the movie she is working on. The movie shoot starts immediately and it is not without its issues. The story follows along the ups and downs of the movie shooting and the love story that transpires. Overall, I thought it was another good book by Mary Kay Andrews. However, the book got a little slow for me at the end - I didn't think one of the story lines really added any value to the book, but other than that, it was a good book. Perfect to read by the pool or on the beach!
I was super excited to read this book. I love the Real Housewives and New Jersey is one of my favorites. This book reads as if Teresa is talking to you, which I thought made it feel really authentic. In the beginning, she covers a bit of her childhood, her husband, and her kids. One of the things I found out in this section was that Teresa had a career outside the home - her job sounds like it would have been super neat! Then, she goes into her legal issues, days leading up to her sentencing, and finally life in prison. I feel like you get the real story of what it is like in prison - at least at Danbury. I just found it all very interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed it! If you are a Teresa fan at all, I would highly recommend this book.
