Beach Town by Mary Kay AndrewsGreer Hennessy needs palm trees.
As a movie location scout, picture-perfect is the name of the game. But her last project literally went up in flames, and her career is on the verge of flaming out. Greer has been given one more chance, if she can find the perfect undiscovered beach hideaway for a big-budget movie. She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida panhandle town called Cypress Key. Theres one motel, a marina, a long stretch of pristine beach and an old fishing pier with a community casino-which will be perfect for the films explosive climax.
Theres just one problem. Eben Thibadeaux, the town mayor, completely objects to Greers plan. A lifelong resident of Cypress Key, Eben wants the town to be revitalized, not commercialized. After a toxic paper plant closed, the bay has only recently been reborn, and Eb has no intention of letting anybody screw with his town again. But Greer has a way of making things happen, regardless of obstacles. And Greer and Eb are way too attracted to each other for either of them to see reason.
Between an ambitious director and his entourage-including a spoiled It Boy lead actor-who parachute into town, a conniving local ex-socialite, and a cast of local fangirls and opportunists who catch the movie bug, nothing is going to be the same in Cypress Key. Now Greer is forced to make some hard choices: about the people and the town shes come to care about, and about her own life. True love is only for the movies, right? Can Greer find a way to be the heroine in her own life story? Told with inimitable heart and humor, Mary Kay Andrews Beach Town is the perfect summer destination.

Any recs on a town like this? Looking to relocate to florida. Looking for somewhere with a vibe like that.
Quiet area but immediate access to everything you need. Malls, gyms, grocery stores, high ways eat. Living expenses are reasonable compared to that of Miami or west palm beach. The weather is great, the people are decent. I lived here for 5 years and before that driving distance. City is maintained in good conditions, no major damaged roads or abandoned homes. Schools are average as they all are in south florida but there are many options to choose from such as charter, private or public.
