Book Blurb: Working as an editor in Seattle, Dana Kline led a happy life. She had great friends, a career she adored, and her health couldn’t be better. But everything about it was mundane and safe. EVERYTHING. No gamble would have made her change her ways, so life was going to change it for her. After an unexpected release from her job and then finding out that she would become practically homeless for the summer, Dana gathered her courage and found herself ready to try a new life in Florida. The only problem was getting herself across the nation on a tight budget, hardly any connections, and an unadventurous self. After many stops along both coast lines Dana finds out that it’s okay to let her hair down, meet new people, and try new escapades. Just as long as her sanity doesn’t fly away with the seagulls.

My Review

Shore House Slumming is the second novel written by author Carli Palmer. Super cool side note, a quote from my review on her first novel, Down the Aisle with Bridezilla is in the front of her new novel! 

You know that saying that it’s not about the destination but the journey on the way? That has never been more true than when reading this novel. The bulk of the novel itself is about Dana’s journey to her new job and home in Florida. She has some of the most outrageous, ridiculous and absolutely chaotic stops along the way. There were too many stops to mention them all, but one of my favorites was when she gets tied up with a neighbor that has her little daughter in those pageants with the big princessy dresses, big hair and lots of attitude.

Sometimes when you stop planning your life out just so and live your life one day at a time, the best things can happen. This novel was an entertaining light-hearted read, perfect for those lazy summer days that are still upon us.

I received a complimentary paperback review copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.


How cool is it that my review made it into her novel?!
