Publisher's Summary

Escape to Shelter Beach in this scripted, multicast rom com with an immersive soundscape. Just over the sand dune, a sweet summer romance with a dash of self-discovery awaits.

Grace Boyd is in dire need of a reset after her career—and personal life—go up in flames. When her fans discover that their favorite social media influencer was a teensy bit less than truthful in some of her posts, they couldn’t unfollow her fast enough. With her reputation in shambles, Grace retreats to her hometown on the picturesque island of Shelter Beach to tend bar (and her wounds) at her family’s inn...and strategize her next move.

As summer heats up, Grace is thrown for a sexy loop. She falls headfirst into a flirtation with a dreamy local fisherman (who was once her high school crush), and keeps running into the intriguing, if infuriating, British reporter-turned-author in the beach house next door. Amid snarky exchanges and heartfelt conversations, Grace is challenged in ways she never expected. While she reconnects with her past and explores new love, Grace's carefully curated image begins to fall away, allowing her to discover who she really is—and where she belongs.

Super cute!

A very adorable listen with an awesome cast of narrators. Loved the beginning with the hilarious influencer excerpts. Not a book that will stick in your mind longer than an hour but definitely a good way to pass the time with a few laughs!

The beach listen is the new beach read

Just started it - Good characters and I like the format of hearing background sounds, etc- perfect for a drive, walk, or listening at the pool. (Would like to say perfect for lying on the beach, but I don’t quite have that lifestyle…yet)

Fun, Uplifting Summer Listen

You’ll enjoy this beachy listen about a social media influencer who loses her way and comes back to herself after a summer on an island popular with vacationers. Well written. Snappy dialog. Lots of romance in addition to the character’s personal growth. Recommended!!

Beach blanket bingo

Such a fun story that makes you wish summer was longer. I’m not even halfway through and sad it will eventually be over.
