Just finished reading this wonderful story of the "Do Over" gals on Mermaid Point. Loved every word!! Such rich description and true to life dialog. Sure hope Wendy is already into the next "Do Over" book - I'm already wanting to read more about Maddie and Will, Nikki and Joe and the rest of the gang. I will buy as many of the Do Over books as Wendy is willing to write!!! Love them and can't wait for the next one!!!!

Wendy Wax is a gifted writer and I have enjoyed her books. However, her use of Jesus as an expletive is offensive to me. Sadly I won't be purchasing more of her books.

Wendy Wax is the Queen of Do Over! As you can see by my reviews—have read every book in this incredible Ten Beach Road series and each, A 5-Star Winner; however, I believe THE HOUSE ON MERMAID POINT is my favorite thus far!

From the stunning front cover (hats off to the designer) to the last page— these characters grab you by the heart and do not let go-for a page-turner. A group of kick ass, talented, and smart women, you will grow to love, for a must read series. Ten Beach Road, Ocean Beach, Christmas at the Beach, and The House on Mermaid Point. (you have to read them all)!

Wendy Wax has found her calling! Humor, wit, interior design, architecture, reality TV, renovations, fun girl time, celebrities, sexy tropical locations, beautiful homes, hot men, good food and drink, and juicy love connections (what is not to love)?

A well written, much loved series of transformations and peeling back of the layers of not only homes, and mansions, but the personal lives of those involved.

Even though I love all the women, Maddie is very special woman, at age 51, many readers will relate with her, as I did. The self-confidence and image factor, in an age of dating when compared to younger women, especially when they have given their life to their former husband, now divorced, having spent their life raising a family.

Was super glad THE HOUSE ON MERMAID POINT offered Maddie some limelight, and happiness, as she is the rock of the crew and her relationship with Hot William was dynamite (please let this couple continue), as they are not done—they sizzle!

Wow, William was such an interesting powerful and sexy character (former rock star musician) and loved seeing his transformation. His relationship with his son Tommy was very similar to the parent-child dynamic between Deirdre and Avery. A story of redemption, loss, and love—priceless!

Do Over is the show at the core of the story; however, each of the women’s lives (Kyra, Nichole, Avery, Deirdre, and Maddie) have been on a long journey filled with obstacles, and frustrations, as well as bonding and a great sense of accomplishment. Each of these women from their twenties to sixties, have faced challenges which have led to self-discovery as they have grown in so many ways. And oh, the banter between sweet little Dustin and William, melts your heart!

Wendy, please do not the series end! Rooting for Hot William and Maddie to continue on . . . Islamorada was a perfect setting for this book and the surprise ending, as one of my favorite spots in the Florida Keys!

From a fellow Floridian, possibly next book--take the crew for their show to: (Palm Beach – Madoff’s old house, which was sold last year and tidbits to include Worth Avenue, new Antique Row, and new waterfront West Palm Beach), Ponte Vedra Beach and some yummy golf celebrity at TPC Sawgrass for a love interest for Kyra, or Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach!) Have lived in all these areas and filled with much excitement!

Possibly the reason I loved this book the most, could be due to having followed these special lovable characters from the beginning. Plus having lived and worked in Islamorada, and the Florida Keys selling real estate opening two projects: A waterfront marina club (condos for boats) and a condo hotel, from construction to completion, with much knowledge of all the fishing, reefs, boating, marinas, and all the hot spots and attractions mentioned in the book.

I know the true beauty of the area firsthand, of course, Checca Lodge, Moorings Village and Spa, Cottages, Pierre's and Morada Bay Beach Café are my favorites,as have experienced many sunsets on the Adirondack chairs with my feet in the sand and a glass of wine—it is heaven and could image myself there with the ladies--They love their sunrises and sunsets.

Wendy did an outstanding job with all the local descriptions and would love to see a movie based on this book! Can you imagine the cast?

Readers will love revisiting with Bella Flora, Chase, Joe, and of course the nightly chardonnay and cheese doodles! Yes, it was that good!

I loved The House on Mermaid Point. The women find themselves intrigued and challenged by the new project on the private island. They’re all getting along better than ever which helps when it comes to tackling the renovation as well as personal issues. With each renovation project the women have experienced personal growth and become more confident.

In this book, Madeline shines as she overcomes her shyness and reaches out to help the owner of the island, William. But will she be glad she took the chance? Deirdre and Avery (mother and daughter) are getting along better than they’d ever thought possible. Maddy’s grown daughter Kyra and her toddler son, Dustin, continue to try to ignore the paparazzi who hound them in hopes of getting photos. Dustin’s father is a famous film star that Kyra met on a movie project. Nicole is still in love with Joe but, given her two failed marriages, doesn’t want to marry him.

On top of all they’re going through they are expected to reno the buildings on the island in a few short months – the hottest months of the year. I loved how Wendy Wax brought the women back together and through the project. Their television show is titled Do Over - and, to a certain extent, that’s what each of the characters is doing with her life. The House on Mermaid Point is an entertaining novel that packs an emotional punch and left me hoping for another Florida project for the women ASAP.

If you haven’t read the previous novels in the series: Ten Beach Road; Ocean Beach; Christmas at the Beach (a novella) you won’t be lost in this book but I recommend reading them in order.

*I received a review copy in exchange for my opinion*

I love this series! After reading the newest, not yet released, novel in the Ten Beach Road series, I had to go back to read this one. Although I would suggest that you read these books in order (this is number 3), it is not vital. Wendy Wax brings you up to date on what is happening and offers brief explanations as to certain occurrences without dragging down the flow of the story.

This book was of particular interest to me since the setting takes place right here where I live in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. It may be a work of fiction, but it all seemed so real!!

Our group of ladies is once again performing a Do Over, renovating a beachfront home on an island which is owned by a former rock star who does not particularly want them there. Relationships change, grow and dissipate, and the ladies again show their individual strengths as obstacle after obstacle is thrown in front of them. A closer mother-daughter relationship grows between Avery and Dierdra after years of conflict and Maddie overcomes her shyness with her self image and realizes that a 51 year old woman can and is very desirable. She shows her strength and character again and again.

Wendy Wax has really found her calling in this series. The way she sets a scene and the way she gets the reader to know each character is phenomenal! There is humor and also moments my eyes filled with tears. She is now on my short list of favorite authors!

The ladies of Do Over were asking, and waiting for the network to answer this very question. We revisit with some of our favorite characters Maddie, Kyra, Dustin, Nikki, and Deirdre; in Wendy Wax’s book The House at Mermaid Point. Get your tools, some sunscreen, and luggage and head to the Isle of Mermaid Point.

Synopsis:

Maddie, Kyra, Dustin, Avery, Nikki, and Deirdre prepare for their next assignment with Do Over. It is a reality television show they are all under contract to Lifetime network. The head of the network Lisa Hogan enjoys humiliating them in some way during each assignment. The Maddie and the rest of the group thought this would be a home improvement show rather than reality television. William Hightower has just left rehab. His son informs him that changes will be made to his father Wild William Hightower’s life. The plan is for William’s residence to become a bed and breakfast for him to earn more income. They sign on with the idea of participating in this Do Over for a discount on the renovations. Will the network succeed in making it happen? Does William Hightower find more in his future than a bed and breakfast?

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book! Wendy Wax has a way of writing her books that make them such easy reads. I also listened to it, and Amy Rubinate did a fabulous job of bringing all the characters to life. The story is set in Mermaid Point down in the Florida Keys. I loved being back with some of my favorite characters. I felt there was one character that I was most proud of it would be Maddie. Her character really blossomed in this book.

One spoiler I loved how she told off her ex-husband. The next book in the series is Sunshine Beach.

Maddie, Avery, Nicki and other characters are back to renovate another broken-down home, this time in the Florida Keys. William Hightower, a former rock star known as “William the Wild” is a recovering alcoholic who is forced by his son to agree to this renovation as there isn’t a penny left from all Will’s years of being a star. What does one do with life when the fame, the booze and drugs aren’t there as one’s foundation?
Avery and her mother Deirdre are still at war with each other, payback for all the years in which Deirdre ran off and left her daughter alone.
Maddie is newly divorced from Steve who lost his job and his pride but who never allowed Maddie to have her own life and falsely believed she could not function without him. Is he in for a surprise! With her daughter Kyra and her grandson Dustin, they say their goodbyes to what was their home for years, uncertain about what the future will bring.
Nicki, the former owner of a dating agency, like so many others who were bankrupted by a Ponzi scam, is also wondering how this latest venture will give her both security and some ideas for the future. She also is bound for a life-changing point of view.
William is not exactly the most endearing of characters, that is until he meets Maddie. But both are intriguing characters as they slowly warm up to each other and yet also have some major misunderstandings about their stereotypical ideas about romance and the roles of men and women. All this occurs while they are doing back-breaking but marvelous work recreating William’s home into something that will indeed breed new life for many in future years!
Add to that the glorious descriptions of magnificent flora, fauna, ocean views, houseboats, architecture and the reader will relish this book as a sequel to Ten Beach Road but also as a stand-alone lovely novel.
Nicely done again, Wendy Wax!!!

This was not my favorite book within the series. Other than the ladies, the new characters did not entice me. I guess that I had loved Max and his story from Ocean Beach so much that I was hoping for more of the same.

Maddie, Avery, Nikki, Kyra and Deirdre are back with a new Do-Over adventure. This time, it is the home of “William the Wild” Hightower an 80’s rocker with long standing reputation for drugs, alcohol and women. It also turns out that Maddie had quite the teenage crush on him.

Times have not been kind to William and he is kicking and screaming when it comes to letting this group of women turn his home into a Key West Bed and Breakfast for the reality show ‘Do Over’. Once Maddie had gotten over her teenage stammering, she took full control of William and the sparks began to fly. This whole dating thing might be new to her, but a good southern woman is not going to let a little male testosterone get in the way of a job that needs to be done.

The television show is still teetering and their input from the production head is coming to a volatile climax. Each of the women has decision to make in regards to their personal lives, but what the reader does know is that they are resilient. They have made it this far and they will continue to fight for what they believe in.

I was very disappointed in the ending. Granted, William is embarking on the life that he wants and Maddie has finally cut the cord on her marriage, but what happened with Deirdre was a redundancy of a previous book. Though it was meant to be a shocker, and it was surprising, at the same time, it was a safe turn.

The characters are all embarking on new roads in their lives and I do look forward to where they will go next. They have the confidence, now they just need their next opportunities, and as a team, they can accomplish anything.

This was an incredibly relevant book to the trend for reality renovation shows. It is about a group of 5 women and one's toddler who have a tv producer that makes them go to an ex-drugged up alcoholic's house on a tiny island after his fifth stint in rehab, to turn his decapitated house into a bread and breakfast. William is a virtual recluse who is unhappy when his home and tiny island off of the Keys is invaded by these women and their help.

I loved the camaraderie between the women, especially when they go from Mermaids Point to the nearest Key to go to dinner or out for drinks. The sultry, hot weather that you could cut with a knife, and no air conditioning, made me glad I was not a part of theIr group. The fourth of July brings an unexpected surprise to one lady, who is to remain on the island by herself, adds intrigue and pleasure to her celebration, also. This is a great read when you just want to relax and get away from it all. It is very good.

When you need a mindless read, this is one for you! Wendy Wax has proven to be a great author. The House on Mermaid Point just adds to her record of great chick lit!

This book does stand alone, but I do recommend reading all of the Do Over books. Maddie is 51, and she is newly divorced. It is she that finds love and lust in this book. The others continue on in their relationships.

Their latest fixer-upper for the Do Over show is on an island that is owned by a reclusive rock star. That is all I will say about that, because I do not want to spoil it.

Part of what makes this series a hit is the connection all the women have. I believe it is one we all long for. I recommend this!

This is the third book in this series and you really need to have read the first two so that you fully understand the characters and realize how much they have grown throughout the series. This is a perfect summer book. Its interesting but not too deep. Our three friends - Mattie, Avery and Nicole are rehabbing a new house for DO-OVER, their potential reality show. Along with the main three characters, there are the additional people from the last books, the daughter, grandson, Diedre, photographers, paparazzi and for this book we add in an aging rock star and his son. This time the main romance is for Mattie, who at 51 finds herself newly single. All of the characters fit well into the story and I found the story to be lots of fun to read. I can't wait to see what happens next to this group of women who all just keep getting stronger.

*Spoilers*

Maddie, Nicole and Avery became friends after losing everything they had to a ponzi scheme. In order to build their finances up again, they decide to accept the offer of renewing old homes into something modern for a television show. Their latest assignment is in the Florida Keys; the home of William Hightower, a former rocker known as “William the Wild.” They’re there to turn his house into a bed-and-breakfast. He’s not happy about the idea; in fact, he wants them gone. But having blown all his money and just getting out of rehab, he doesn’t have a choice. What he doesn’t count on, though, is that Maddie’s being there just might help him stay on the straight and narrow, and find himself again.

Now the bad: The book sounded interesting from the blurb; but there are times when it can be misleading. This was one of them. Some things I just didn’t understand: Avery is an architect, but she actually wears a toolbelt and hard hat and does the work herself. I have a friend who’s an architect, and years ago I worked for one. Normally, they don’t do the work (unless it’s actually their own home). So, if Avery is doing the construction part, I would really have liked to know her background. We know that her father owned a construction company, but it doesn’t make her a contractor. (I could be wrong, but personally, I’ve never known an architect that did the construction also).

Here’s the big thing: In my opinion, the book was a little too focused on Dustin, the child of Kyra and married actor Dan Deranian. I don’t read tabloids, but I know enough that they’re not covered in photos of children of celebrities. I can’t even imagine it being so huge the paparazzi would be taking hours upon hours of film of the child just to increase ratings. You might want to see a famous actor/actress, but their children? According to this book, Dustin is a big part of the show. Really? I found it just too hard to believe. The way actors/actresses cheat on their spouses, it’s not a big deal to see the resulting child. And I’ve yet to see paparazzi chasing them down every minute of the day. In fact, I would guess that photographers would stay away from this kind of thing. And what kind of a mother does it make Kyra that she would basically put her child on a television show as if he were some kind of exhibit? The producers says to make sure ‘they get lots of shots of Dustin.’ Who is this actor? Some kind of god that his child is the Favored One? I just didn’t get that storyline at all. Plus the fact that he’s a child who can’t even enunciate his words and they have him on a jobsite. Yeah, that works. It’s also like a daily reminder that Dan cheated on his wife. That’s going to help the marriage (and humiliate his wife constantly). Somehow, I don’t think the press wants to alienate movie stars. Besides, in the real world, if Kyra was exploiting her son for money, Dan would probably file for custody saying she was an unfit mother – and win.

As if that weren’t enough, supposedly when they renovated the house of a former vaudvillian, Max Golden, something happened. The show is being run on network television, and they all sit down to watch. Well, there’s a scene where someone is shooting at Kyra and Dustin, and Max jumps in front of Dustin and he gets shot. And killed, and they show that and the body being taken away. And they show this on TV. On network TV, no less. I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure they don’t show someone being murdered on television. I’m pretty sure that episode never would have aired. There are people across the country who wouldn’t want to see that, you know. (Can’t you see the TV Guide: Tonight on Do Over: Max Golden gets killed. Tune in at 8). How would you promo that one? They might do a tribute, but…

The last thing is that this book is obviously part of a series. You’re given enough information to know that, but you really need to begin at the first one to get the whole picture, and the ending leaves you hanging, so that you have to read the next in the series (not that it doesn’t resolve some things; it does, but there are new questions that aren’t answered).

So, in my opinion, read this if you’re already into the series. If not, it’s up to you if you want. I just couldn’t buy the whole Dustin-is-the-best-thing-that-ever-happened idea. Or the fact that they show a death on television. No offense to the author, who is usually better than this, but it just didn’t make sense.

*OBS would like to thank the publisher for supplying a free copy of this title in exchange for an honest review*

Once again the ladies do it again with renovating a mansion but this time in The Keys. Have to give it 5 stars because for me Wendy Wax kept the suspense going about an aging rock star and his distaste for anyone being in his space. The ladies really do pull it off by getting the renovation done and on time in spite of being pushed to the limits by their very lack of charm producer/head of the reality series they star in. With all the heat and humidity they endure and the cramped space (again) they are forced to live in during the makeover, they manage to persevere. There is one spoiler but will not ruin for others who have not read this book yet. I enjoyed the book, the reason for my 5 stars!

Did not enjoy reading about the mean spirited Lisa, network monster. Even more I did not like reading about people spineless enough to allow her to dictate their lives. I never did understand what everyone's job was supposed to be, since they still hired actual tradespeople.

Where was a child at the demolition'/construction site, being exposed to photographers against his mother's wishes. The motivation of Maddie was simply bizarre. Sleep with a guy who has decades of abuse problems, hear him say it wasn't anything special and be referred to as babe, and she STILL likes him?

I would have given this book zero stars if I could. Was the idea of a reality show not real enough? So someone dies at the end of BOTH "episodes" of this show? Not a winning idea.

rachael lander
I have enjoyed each and every book in this series! I hope that there is more to come. The ladies take a job fixing up a house on Mermaid Point an island owned by an aging rock star who is a recovering addict. The usual headaches occur as the producer for their show seems only to want to portray them in the worst light possible. As the ladies struggle with the job of renovating the property they also struggle with the beginnings and endings of relationships.

Just an all around great read!

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings

A third in a series and before you read on in the review - know that I had no clue this was #3 until a few chapters in and went looking thinking that I was missing some backstory! So with that said, I wish I had read Ten Beach Road and Ocean Beach before I read this one. I was missing out on the "inside" jokes and would probably have loved it even more after reading the first two, so they are officially on my TBR.

Have enjoyed all of the books in the series except for the Christmas one. It was good- just too short. The way everyone worked together even tho they didn't know each other in the beginning, is a great way to see what one can do if needed. Their friendships and ways of interacting at times is amazing as well as the support they give each other. Am hoping for another in the series.

Rich descriptive details bring the setting alive, the character development was deeply satisfying, and while every little detail was not tidied up and made into 'happily ever after', each woman was on a satisfying journey and the place they found themselves in was perfect for now.

I do so hope there will be another episode of these wonderful characters.

I just loved reading this book. The characters were interesting and each had a distinct personality and charm. The locations were described in detail so that you feel you are there on Mermaid Point with them. Very enjoyable story. Now I want to read the earlier books in this series. Looking forward to knowing all about the characters from the beginning. Thank you Wendy Wax for writing such a wonderful book.

Characters were so stereotypical and poorly defined, there was little depth in the plot so the book seemed boring, and the constant use of fragmented sentences was a style turn-off for me. I bought this book based on the favorable reviews already entered, so others apparently like this author's work and her style. It just wasn't to my taste.

Delightful and funny with just the right amount of tension between the women and Wild Will. I didn't want to put it down. Was surprised about what happened to Delilah, didn't think it would turn out that way. I hope the author writes another book with Maddie, Kara and Avery. Her descriptions of Key west make me want to plan a vacation there soon!

It was fun getting back together with old friends. This one was not quite as good as the first two. The "romance"? Between Will and Maddie was a no starter. They had sex, but barely shared anything other than hungry looks. Are we back in middle school when you can have a boyfriend you don't talk to?

Just good, not really good or great

Loved it. As always these characters are so interesting. Loved the new characters as well. Not sure what is next for them. I'd love to see Maddie help run Mermaid Point

The story idea was worn out by the time I got to this book . It is third in a series...just skimmed through it
Please Rate The House on Mermaid Point (Ten Beach Road Series)
