Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth

Hildreth’s book, Hurricanes in Paradise, is about four women who are struggling with their lives.  Riley came to Paradise Island to forget her past and make a new future, Tamyra came to escape the knowledge that she’s dying from HIV, Winnie came because her children made her in order to get over her dead husband, and Laine came to write her next novel.  These four women come to terms with themselves with the help and support of each other and face their demons with the help of God.

                To begin with, I loved this book and found little wrong with it.  The ending had an unpredictable twist to it, which made it even better.  Oddly enough, the lack of background information on the characters kept you reading to find out more, rather than frustrated.  Additionally, the book was very humorous and had many laugh out loud moments.  Furthermore, the descriptiveness of the setting and characterization was artfully done in a way that allowed you to picture yourself as part of the story.  I also loved how real and believable the characters were – they had actual pain and hurt that managed to get the reader to experience it with them.  One last thing I loved was the Christian connotation to the book and how God helped mold the women’s lives.  There were a few typos, but that’s expected with advanced reader copies.  All in all, Hurricanes in Paradise was a wonderful book which I would definitely recommend you reading.

Thank you to Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with this complimentary copy to review.
