The women have exteriors that seem strong to outside observers. One is a gorgeous fashion model. Another is a best-selling author. Yet another has been a hotel director of guest relations. But it is the widow among the group who has borne the most pain and who has the greatest wisdom to share. Together, the women discover avenues to forgiveness, personal acceptance, and genuine friendship.
Hurricanes in Paradise has the potential to offer a captivating plot and an interesting storyline, however, the execution is sloppy. Clichés and worn out metaphors plague this book. The dialogue is rather flat at times, the plot conflict resolutions are a bit too pat, and the spiritual emphasis is a secondary concern, taking a backseat to interpersonal relationships and lightweight psychology. The book is entertaining and nicely-paced, but it isnt the thought-provoking revelation that a book about womens relationships should be. Bethany E. Sievert, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

I was not disappointed. This was the first book I have read by Denise Hildreth and I quickly became a fan. The story was well written with interesting characters. I had a hard time putting it down. The authors writing about the setting was wonderful and I felt like I was right in the middle of the spectacular Atlantis resort. I really enjoyed all the twists and turns to the plot that kept the story fresh and unpredictable. A must read for the summer!

Vernon, ILAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this book based on the reviews and they were right on! I appreciate a good novel now and then and bought this for myself for Christmas to steal away and read. What a great story this was, it moved swiftly and did not drag. The characters were well developed and it seemed like I have met them sometime in my life. Ms. Hildreth writes uniquely and colorfully. I was so glad I purchased this and look forward to reading her Savannah series. It will be a keeper on my shelf.
