Mayhem in Myrtle Beach
By: T. Lynn Ocean
Mayhem in Myrtle Beach mixes a newly single, fresh college graduate with forty-six young at heart senior citizens and places them all on a charted bus headed to Myrtle Beach. What could possibly go wrong? Sherwood accepts a week-long probationary offer at a retirement community, in hopes that the time in the sun will not only give her a new perspective on life, but also a paying job when she returns. However, when her old study partner turns out to be the driver, who is more handsome than she recalls, and the elderly group doesn’t welcome her with open arms, Sherwood begins to think she may be in over her head.
Beautiful Myrtle Beach is the setting for the majority of the story. The author shows her love and knowledge of the area, by filling the book with details known by locals and yearly vacationers. T. Lynn Ocean tells this story in an omniscient point of view, which allows readers to get to know each of these eclectic cast members better. Each character brings with them their own baggage and stereotype, which provides opportunities for growth and healing throughout their adventures. This romance book includes some spicier chapters. However at its heart, it is the story of friendship, family, love, life and laughter. We all carry our past with us, but it is how we chose to live our present that will determine our future.
