Brooke Trappnell 34, an attorney on mainland St. Ann, Georgia receives a call to come to Talisa Island to meet with Josephine.
Thus begins a complex tale of not just legal issues but if love, war, money, friendships, race relationships, societal norms and murder.
For the next few weeks, Brooke searches endeavors to meet Josephine’s stated goal. She finds a living member of the High Tide Club, questionable heirs and relations all the while struggling with her own life as a financially stressed, never married mother of a three year old.
What evolves is a story of complex interaction. Through twists, turns, conflicts and threats, the ladies of the High Tide Club gain respect and acceptance of each other.
Mary Kay Andrews develops diverse characters all of whom are real. Readers too, will come to accept and respect these well defined relatable characters who exist in a story of life as it exists.
Warning, reading this novel could lead to a skinny dipping addiction
I loved the Savannah books and I like the books she wrote under her real name, with the former cop and cleaning business, but I think her books are going down hill.
I am going to try one more time on this book and it my opinion changes, I will revise my review.
I absolutely love Mary Bliss, Weezie and the stories surrounding Savannah and Tybee Island. I love all the other books Ms Andrews has written as well. However, this one was different. Intriguing. Sentimental. Heartwarming. A glimpse of life when my grandmother was alive. I only know bits and pieces of her life. She was close to her sister and sister-in-laws. I am an only child. I have friends but no siblings. I do wish I had a tight group of friends like Josephine had back in her day! I can’t raise a glass to those ladies but I can praise the author for such a great work! Definitely in my top 5 favorites!
The one thing I really liked best was less use of expressive words that do not seem to belong but that is just me.
Read and enjoy but I warn you, you will find it hard to put down once you pick it up! Happy reading!
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.

Ich habe es nicht zurückgeschickt, sondern meiner Freundin erklärt, dass ich es zum Neupreis erworben habe, da der Termin drängte.
Zum Inhalt kann ich nichts sagen, allerdings gefielen mir einige andere Bücher der Autorin. Die kann ich empfehlen.
