Summary
"A great summer read for fans of Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin." ( Library Journal )

A trio of college friends who reunite aboard a cruise ship experience an unforgettable vacation in this compelling novel from the author of The Summer of Good Intentions, which was hailed as "everything a summer read should be" by Elin Hilderbrand.

Three college roommates are celebrating a twentieth wedding anniversary by taking a cruise to Bermuda. As the ship pulls away from the pier, everyone is looking forward to lounging by the pool, sipping sunset cocktails, and reminiscing. Abby, the mother hen of the group, will be celebrating her wedding anniversary in style, even as she and her husband keep a secret from the group. Ambitious career woman Caroline happily anticipates several stress-free days away from her magazine job with her boyfriend, Javier, who may or may not be finally inspired to propose. And single mom Lee (annoyingly gorgeous and irresistibly popular in college) hopes she'll win back the affections of her formerly sweet daughter Lacey, who after her first year in college, has inexplicably become a little bit of a monster.

As the balmy pink shores of Bermuda come into view, tensions simmer, and old jealousies flare, sending the temperature from soothing to scorching in this engrossing tale of three best friends on a vacation they won't soon forget--but not for the reasons they expect.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Abby, Lee, and Caroline, old college friends, gather aboard a cruise ship to Bermuda to celebrate Abby's twentieth wedding anniversary. Though they have kept in touch over the years, they all have secrets they haven't shared. One is hoping to mend her relationship with her daughter, one is hoping to get engaged, and the other is facing a health crisis that will test their friendship. The characters are likable, as is their relationship. Though they are all dealing with their own issues, they all get a satisfying resolution by the book's end. The overall feel of the novel is reminiscent of Cassandra King's The Same Sweet Girls (2005). Characteristic of Francis (The Summer of Good Intentions, 2015), the setting of this enjoyable novel is enticing, and the tone is breezy. A sure bet for your summer beach-reads list. Recommend this one to fans of Elin Hilderbrand and Anne Rivers Siddons.--Milone Hill, Nanci Copyright 2010 Booklist"
