Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth is an active scene-changing, point-of-view-shifting book focused on four women who find themselves on the tropical island of Paradise. They arrive at the island’s central hotel burdened with suitcases, carry-ons, parcels, totes, and handbags of every shape and size, but none of these travel trunks carries anything near the “emotional baggage” being brought by each woman. Their pasts include family woes, romantic disasters, career mistakes, physical problems, and spiritual vacuums. As the walking wounded, they see empty spaces in each other’s hearts and souls, so they bond to try to mend one another. Sometimes it is through listening; sometimes it is by sharing their own intimate life stories; and sometimes it is by motivating someone to take a bold step toward personal recovery.

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 isn’t the thought-provoking “revelation” that a book about women’s relationships should be. – Bethany E. Sievert, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I picked up this book to read during the summer, because it seemed like the perfect fit. 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!

    This was a very good book. I thought it was well written and it kept me glued to the pages. The messages of God and relationships are clearly seen in the story. I have recommended that my friends read Hurricanes in Paradise because they will be blessed like I was when I read it.

    The story was well written and seems to accurately depict the brokenness in many peoples lives. The story made me laugh out loud at times and weep at other times. It clearly portrays that healing comes through God and His love working through others. I look forward to reading other novels by the same author. I have already recommended it to friends.

    I 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.
