Hurricanes in Paradise

From the moment Riley Sinclair steeped onto Paradise Island, Bahamas, and into her new job as director of guest relations at a five-star resort, she felt the pieces of her once-broken life finally coming together.

But the waters become choppy when Riley discovers that some who come to the Atlantis hotel arrive with more than just suitcases and suntan lotion in tow - they're accompanied by their lurking demons, paralyzing secrets, and overwhelming fears.

Riley and three women guests are in desperate but unknowing need of each other, eventually forging unlikey yet powerful friendships. With a hurricane headed straight for the island, together they embark on a journey of laughter and lunacy, heartache and healing. (excerpt from back cover).

My Review:

Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth is a wonderful story of the strong and much needed and desired friendships of women, especially in the face of crisis. Riley Sinclair is the director of guest relations at the Atlantis hotel, whose job is to ensure each guest receives the finest the hotel has to offer.

When Riley is faced with three VIPs she needs to make sure that these three recieve top priority and whatever they specifically request. The first, Laine Fulton, a well acclaimed author who is planning on researching her latest novel at the Atlantis hotel. Rumor has it that she is overbearing, demanding and bossy and those are just some of her good traits.

Her second priority guest is Winnie Harris, who is the principal of a school for troubled teens. She is flashy and full of Southern flair and charm, whose goal is to lose herself from the family who is overcontrolling and wishing her to move on in her life without her husband Sam who has passed away 3 years ago. Winnie is stuck in the past and is fleeing her family by arriving at the Atlantis.

The last guest is a young pagent model, Tamyra Larsen, who is been hiding a deep dark secret from her family for the last 6 weeks and doesn't know how to tell her family. She winds up at the Atlantis looking for a way to heal from her secrets.

All three women will encounter one another and in return the healing waters of the Atlantis hotel will change all of their lives forever even as the forecast for a hurricane looms on the horizon.

This book was amazing and perfect 10! I was so immersed by each women's story of what they were holding on to and how through their unique bonds of friendship each of them begins to heal another. If you are looking for an amazing summer read or simply a story to completely lose yourself in, trust me, get this one.

I received this book, compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review, and have to say, I wish there was a sequel to it! I loved it! This book is available in paperback and eBook format from Tyndale House Publishers.
