If you are looking for a good read but are short on time, I have the perfect solution. Christmas at the Beach by Wendy Wax is a short novel (90 pages) that will take you away for a few hours of relaxation. Part of her “Ten Beach Road” series, this little novel is packed with family, friendships, and of course Christmas. When a group of family and friends gathers for Christmas at their recently renovated beach house for the popular TV show “Do Over”, uninvited visitors arrive and a children’s’ replica of the house is delivered on Christmas Eve. During all the chaos, paparazzi show up in full force flashing cameras to see the illegitimate one year old son of a famous movie star enter his new playhouse and the quiet holiday getaway crumbles. A well written Christmas story. Enjoy!
