The High Tide Club by Mary Kay Andrews Book Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Weekenders comes a delightful new novel about new love, old secrets, and the kind of friendship that transcends generations.

When ninety-nine-year-old heiress Josephine Bettendorf Warrick summons Brooke Trappnell to Talisa Island, her 20,000 acre remote barrier island home, Brooke is puzzled. Everybody in the South has heard about the eccentric millionaire mistress of Talisa, but Brooke has never met her. Josephine’s cryptic note says she wants to discuss an important legal matter with Brooke, who is an attorney, but Brooke knows that Mrs. Warrick has long been a client of a prestigious Atlanta law firm.

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.

Loved it!4.5 stars I really enjoyed The High Tide Club. It’s a well-written story about friendship and forgiveness. The book alternates between the 1940s and the present day. It takes place mostly on Talisa Island. The same Island where the eccentric Josephine Bettendorf Warrick, the sole owner of the land, lived. Josephine is ninety-nine-years-old and dying from Cancer. She knows that her time for making amends to the High Tide Club members is running out. Although she only has one friend who is still alive, from the exclusive club, she plans on making restitution to her deceased friends, by giving to their next of kin. So Josephine hires Brooke Trappnell, a lawyer, to not only re-write her will but to also find her friend’s closest relatives. Josephine needs to confess. Her dark secrets are too much for her to bear. But, more than anything, Josephine wants forgiveness. She sincerely, hopes that it’s not too late. The High Tide Club has a bit of everything, betrayal, heartache, romance, mystery, friendship and secrets; Lots and lots of secrets. The story has several twists and surprises, a couple of them; I never saw coming. This book is a well-written and enjoyable story. Mary Kay Andrews knows how to spin a tale. Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it..Score: 5/5

Disappointed.Love Mary Kay Andrews and was anxiously awaiting this book. Story was good... just too long with too many details to keep me hooked. Skimmed to the end at times..Score: 2/5

Good story, needs better editingNice summer read - fairly predictable but there are some interesting characters and a few plot twists but you see most of them coming. Didn’t care for some of the choppiness later in the book - flashbacks, short chapters and the author seemed in a hurry to finish so some of the sub plots were rushed, possibly in an effort to tie it all up in a neat package. There are a lot of characters and story lines and it took effort to keep them all straight. If you’re looking for a happy book, then this is for you..Score: 3/5
