Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth Book Review


List Price:  $13.99 
ISBN:  978-1-4143-3557-5
Release:  June 2010

From the Publisher:

When Riley Sinclair stepped into her new job as director of guest relations at a posh resort on Paradise Island, she felt the final pieces of her once-broken life coming together. But the waters become choppy when Riley discovers that some who come to the Atlantis Hotel are accompanied by paralyzing secrets and overwhelming fears. Riley and three guests are in desperate but unknowing need of each other, eventually forging unlikely yet powerful friendships. With a hurricane headed straight for the island, together they embark on a journey of laughter, heartache, and healing.

My Review:

I finished the book thinking - “this really sounds like a REAL story.”  I was amazed at this book…it drew me in and made me a part of the story.

It had ups and downs and kept the imagination rolling.  It made want to cry NO at the last part of the book but still showed how God makes restoration through many storms.

The characters felt like my real friends – who all have real problems.

I would not recommend this book for the young because of  “grown-up” situations.

It was a very simple read and would be great on a road trip.

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
