STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Bitterness Is Such Sweet Sarcasm
💛 This was a blast. Complete escapist entertainment. Main character Kate is hilariously blunt and just good fun to spend time with. Her jealousy, her anger, her frustration, it’s well expressed and tongue in cheek.
💚 My one complaint? At under 2 hours in length, I whizzed through this in half a day. I wanted more! But this was a freebie on Audible’s Plus Catalogue so I can’t complain (even if I just did…)
🧡 Main character, Kate really drives this story. She’s a bit Liz Lemon, a smidgen Mrs Maisel and a touch Christina Yang from Grey's Anatomy. Strong, funny, flawed.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 Christina Applegate at her snarkiest, funniest peak. She was amazing.

When Kate wins an item at her children’s elementary school auction - an all-inclusive trip to SeaView at Sandpiper Bay - she thinks it’s just what her family needs after a decade of career disappointments and a marriage on its last legs. She has no reason to believe that said trip is a Fyre Festival-level fraud and, in fact, the catalyst to her unraveling. But it is. Oh, but it is.
Upon her return home, Kate, a failed writer, sets out to publish the world’s most anthemic one-star Yelp review of SeaView at Sandpiper Bay, detailing her week from hell on its brackish waters. And it will be her masterpiece.
At first, it feels good to let her white-knuckled fingers fly ragefully across the keys. But after a while, Kate wonders: Is her Yelp review like the vacation itself, an ill-advised Band-Aid on problems she doesn’t know how to fix?
