There's no such thing as Paradise...Twenty years ago they were high school royalty, the girls everyone envied. But life for Tracy and Holly has subsided into suburban contentment, husbands, homes and families. So when Olivia, the group's glamorous leader, returns to America as a rich widow, they decide to celebrate their reunion onboard a luxurious sailing boat in the Caribbean. Accompanied by Tracy's unruly teenage daughter and an attentive and experienced crew, the three friends set sail for the holiday of a lifetime. But what really awaits them in the sun-drenched Caribbean is more mysterious and terrifying than anything they could have imagine. As their dream trip turns into a desperate fight for survival, the women soon find themselves faced with dwindling supplies, modern-day piracy and, above all, the deep, lonely ocean. To survive, they must rely on the bonds that have held them close all these years, friend to friend, mother to daughter - even as old secrets, old alliances and new treacheries push them beyond endurance.

Library Journal Review

Popular novelist Mitchard (Cage of Stars) continues to explore family relationships, this time adding a twist of high-seas suspense. Best friends since high school, Tracy, Olivia, and Holly plan a reunion cruise on Olivia's yacht, along with Tracy's adopted teenaged daughter, Camille. The cruise unravels through a series of small missteps and betrayals. After a slow beginning, with chapters alternately highlighting the tensions between Tracy and her daughter and the twisted path of a group of drug dealers, the story comes alive as the four women find themselves lost at sea and fending off modern-day pirates. Fans of Mitchard will be pleased. Recommended for large fiction collections. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 4/15/07.]-Jan Blodgett, Davidson Coll., NC (c) Copyright 2010.
