The month of May 2018 is the 8th anniversary of Writer’s Corner. Today we celebrate with a review and giveaway of The High Tide Club by Mary Kay Andrews. The giveaway will run from the 24 the to the 31 of May. I always look forward each year to sharing the next book by Mary Kay Andrews and this year is no exception. Are you ready for some fun?
One night in October 1941 an engagement party took place on Talisa Island the home of the Bettendorfs. This engagement party is for Millie a friend of Josephine Bettendorf. At the party Millie is dancing with Josephine’s brother Gardiner when her fiancé Russell Strickland suddenly notices, and pulls her away from Gardiner roughly. Gardiner confronts Russell and threatens that he better be off the island by morning. Meanwhile Josephine, Millie, Ruth, and Varina take a short trip to Mermaid beach and initiate the High Tide Club. While on their way back to the house they notice Russell’s body, and they decide to hide it.
Choices were made that night that impacted the future. In the present 99 year old Josephine Bettendorf Warrick wants to settle some old debts. She contacts Brook Trapnell to handle her estate and help get back together the women of the High Tide Club. When Josephine passes suddenly the mystery remains as to what happened all those years ago and who will inherit the estate?
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters of Josephine, Ruth, Millie, Varina and their descendants Marie, Brook, Felicia, and Lizzie. Ms. Andrews crafted a wonderful set of characters that I would not mind seeing again in another book. While reading this book every time I thought I knew where the plot would go, but I was wrong. This book is great for going to the beach. I hope that we will hear more from the High Tide Club in the future!
