Grace Stanton runs such a successful lifestyle blog that her husband, Ben, quit his job and works with her. When Ben cheats on her, Grace drives his car into the swimming pool. Now she is living above her mother's Florida bar, the Sandbox, and attending a court-assigned therapy group. But instead of therapy, Grace and the other women end up at "Ladies Night" at the Sandbox, discussing the therapist who seems to have her own problems. Even as Grace finds a little house to fix up, and a man with his own marriage problems, she can't escape the mess she left behind. VERDICT Set on Florida's Gulf Coast, featuring sunsets and walks by the water, Andrews's latest beach read (after Spring Fever) will have great appeal for readers who enjoy stories of women rebuilding their lives, with the support of other women. Add in a dog, a sweet little boy, hilarious stories of women getting revenge, and romance, and it's a vacation escape.
