This program includes a bonus chapter, 'Beach House Dreaming,' read by Mary Kay Andrews.
Pull up a lounge chair and have a cocktail at Sunset Beach - it comes with a twist.
Drue Campbell's life is adrift. Out of a job and down on her luck, life doesn't seem to be getting any better when her estranged father, Brice Campbell, a flamboyant personal injury attorney, shows up at her mother's funeral after a twenty-year absence. Worse, he's remarried - to Drue's eighth grade frenemy, Wendy, now his office manager. And they're offering her a job.
It seems like the job from hell, but the offer is sweetened by the news of her inheritance - her grandparents' beach bungalow in the sleepy town of Sunset Beach, a charming but storm-damaged eyesore now surrounded by waterfront McMansions.
With no other prospects, Drue begrudgingly joins the firm, spending her days screening out the grifters whose phone calls flood the law office. Working with Wendy is no picnic either. But when a suspicious death at an exclusive beach resort nearby exposes possible corruption at her father's firm, she goes from unwilling cubicle rat to unwitting investigator, and is drawn into a case that may - or may not - involve her father. With an office romance building, a decades-old missing persons case re-opened, and a cottage in rehab, one thing is for sure at Sunset Beach: there's a storm on the horizon.
Sunset Beach is a compelling ride, full of Mary Kay Andrews' signature wit, heart, and charm.

"Narrator Kathleen McInerney brings the listener into Drue Campbell's sorry life. She is out of a job and has hit bottom. Then her estranged father approaches her with both a job offer and a place to live--in her grandparents' beach cottage. Drue's father is a personal injury lawyer and has her working the phone at his firm. McInerney gives each character a unique voice--from the bitchy tones of Drue's father's new wife to the husky timbre of Drue's co-worker. Drue becomes embroiled in two mysteries, one involving her father's firm and the other a forty- year-old-disappearance. The listener gets caught up in Drue's investigations and her rehabbing of the cottage. McInerney will have listeners eager to hear how it all turns out. S.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
