Seventy-seven years ago four young women…one a fourteen teenaged girl, met under a full moon. They formed a club—the High Tide Club.  But they promised so much more.  They promised to be friends for life…and then some.  But as happens in life, despite years of friendship, the foursome drifted apart.  Now, at 99 years of age and dying of end stage lung cancer, Josephine has decided it is time to make amends to her old friends.  To do so she summons Brooke Trappnell to her island, Talisa, and asks the young attorney to do certain things.  Brooke begins the process of contacting the friends and for those who have passed on, their descendants.  One of them turns out to be Brooke’s own mother.  As secrets are revealed, people from Brooke’s own past return to her life. Bit by bit, truths are come to light and at the same time, new friendships are forged. 

I haven’t read a Mary Kay Andrews in some time and it’s been too long.  THE HIGH TIDE CLUB is one of those reads that has something for everyone.  A little romance, a mystery, some history, great characters and several stories wonderfully woven into one.  With each new character that came along a new story began to unfold, each more compelling than the one before.  Andrews ties them altogether in fabulous style and storytelling. 

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
