When ninety-nine-year-old heiress Josephine Bettendorf Warrick summons attorney Brooke Trappnell to her 20,000 acre barrier island home, Brooke is puzzled. Everybody in the South has heard about the eccentric millionaire mistress of Talisa, but Brooke has never actually met her. Josephine’s cryptic note says she wants to discuss an important legal matter, but why enlist Brooke and not the prestigious Atlanta law firm she has used for years? Brooke travels to Shellhaven and meets the cagey Josephine, whose home is a crumbling pink mansion at the edge of the turquoise sea.

Over the course of a few meetings, Josephine spins a tale of old friendships, dark secrets, betrayal, and a long-unsolved murder. She is hiring Brooke for two reasons: first, to protect her island from those who would despoil her land, and second, to help her make amends with the heirs of the 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. To fulfill a dying woman’s wishes, Brooke must find Josephine’s friends’ descendants and bringing them together on Talisa for a reunion of women who’ve actually never met. But in doing so, Brooke unleashes the makings of a scandal that could make someone rich beyond their wildest dreams…or cause them to be in the crosshairs of a murderer….

5.0 The High Tide Club by Mary Kay Andrews
THE HIGH TIDE CLUB by Mary Kay Andrews Andrews is one of my favorite “women’s lit” authors. Her characters speak and act like real people. Her plots are intricate and satisfying. Her settings are richly described. The tempo is fast enough to keep up interest and yet slow enough for a well-paced read...

My first book of summer and I loved it. Mary Kay Andrews stepped out of her normal writing style and did an amazing job. The mystery, the family, the friendships, and the Southern Charm are all amazing. The dual timelines of 1941 and the present time come together perfectly. The two differ...

Ahhh, just finished yet another great MKA book. Looking for a good, fun book? You can't go wrong with MKA!!This one was a little different than her most recent books. If you've been an MKA fan in the past, then you know she started out as a mystery writer and then went onto rom com/women's fiction. ...

1.0 May Go Down as My Worst Read of 2018
Please note that I received this book via NetGalley. This did not affect my review or rating. Warning. This is not a beach read. This is a story of barely developed characters, subtle racism (overt in some cases) a secret child story-line (I hate those) and a plot that zigs-zags from the past to ...
