Where is it?

Told with inimitable heart and humor, Mary Kay Andrews' New York Times bestseller, Beach Town , is the perfect summer destination.

Greer Hennessy is a movie location scout, and picture-perfect is the name of the game. After her last project literally went up in flames, Greer has one more chance to prove herself before her career burns out as well. Now all she needs to do is come up with the ideal beach-town setting for a big-budget movie. When she discovers Cypress Key, one of Florida's hidden treasures, Greer believes she's found cinematic gold. If only the town's mayor, Eben Thibadeaux, would agree.

A lifelong resident of Cypress Key, the last thing Eb wants is for some Hollywood hotshot and her crew--a spoiled "It Boy" lead actor and his entourage, plus fangirls, among them--to come in and shake things up. The only problem is that he finds Greer far too attractive for his own good. . .and, in spite of their squabbles, it's become clear that the feeling is mutual. But there's a plot afoot to make sure that old scores are settled, that revenge gets top billing, and that no onegets their happily ever after. But then again, fate has a funny way of stealing the show...

Booklist Review
In her latest big, enjoyable novel, with a title strongly suggesting beach read, perennial best-seller Andrews (Save the Date,2014) introduces us to movie-location-scout Greer Hennessey as she finds the perfect undeveloped Florida coast town for a demanding director's current shoot. But the town's mayor, Eben Thinadeaux, who is also a real-estate agent, environmental engineer, grocery-store owner, and motel co-manager, isn't too keen on Hollywood taking over sleepy Cypress Key. Sparks fly between Greer and Eben as their disagreements about the movie can't burn out their mutual attraction. Things are explosive on set, too, as the movie's self-destructive star wreaks havoc on the cast, crew, and townspeople. Greer must find a way to balance her growing love for Eben and Cypress Key with choices that may well make or break her career. Andrews expertly combines an intriguing love story with small-town quirkiness and cinematic action to highly entertaining effect. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This enticing romance arrives right on time for summer's lighter reading season with a hefty 250,000 initial print run and lots of promotion pizzazz, and it will be a popular pick.--Walker, Aleksandra Copyright 2015 Booklist
