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 chartered 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 annual visitors. T. Lynn Ocean’s omniscient narrator allows readers to get to know each of these eclectic cast members better. Each character brings their own baggage and stereotype, which provides opportunities for growth and healing throughout their adventures. This romantic read also 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.

I read T. Lynn Ocean’s Southern Fatality a couple of years ago and loved it so much that I had high expectations when I started reading this book. I am pleased to say that Mayhem in Myrtle Beach did not disappoint. I was able to relate to each of the characters and laughed out loud so many times that I lost track. This book is a witty read for established fans of T. Lynn Ocean and readers who are new to her work.
