Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Weekenders comes a delightful new novel about new love, old secrets, and the kind of friendship that transcends generations.

When ninety-nine-year-old heiress Josephine Bettendorf Warrick summons Brooke Trappnell to Talisa Island, her 20,000 acre remote barrier island home, Brooke is puzzled. Everybody in the South has heard about the eccentric millionaire mistress of Talisa, but Brooke has never met her. Josephine's cryptic note says she wants to discuss an important legal matter with Brooke, who is an attorney, but Brooke knows that Mrs. Warrick has long been a client of a prestigious Atlanta law firm.

Over a few meetings, the ailing Josephine spins a tale of old friendships, secrets, betrayal and a long-unsolved murder. She tells Brooke she is hiring her for two reasons: to protect her island and legacy from those who would despoil her land, and secondly, to help her make amends with the heirs of the long dead women who were her closest friends, the girls of The High Tide Club--so named because of their youthful skinny dipping escapades--Millie, Ruth and Varina. When Josephine dies with her secrets intact, Brooke is charged with contacting Josephine's friends' descendants and bringing them together on Talisa for a reunion of women who've actually never met.

The High Tide Club is Mary Kay Andrews at her Queen of the Beach Reads best, a compelling and witty tale of romance thwarted, friendships renewed, justice delivered, and true love found.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Perennial bestseller Andrews (The Weekenders, 2016) returns with what's sure to be a popular beach read. Struggling small-town lawyer and single mom Brooke Trappnell receives a call from 99-year-old Josephine Warrick. Josephine has received a terminal diagnosis and wants to ensure that her family's island estate, Shellhaven, on wild, beautiful Talisa Island doesn't become state property. She wants Brooke's help to make amends for becoming estranged from her oldest and dearest friends, women who called themselves the High Tide Club, by leaving Shellhaven to their remaining families. Brooke thinks this case is a lost cause but is compelled to make things right when she learns her grandmother, Millie, was one of the High Tide Club. What follows is a compelling novel about the people and places that shape a life and the secrets that create ripples for generations. With a unique setting, mysterious flashbacks, romance, and a surprising twist, this book will not disappoint readers looking for juicy escape.--Walker, Aleksandra Copyright 2018 Booklist"
