Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth

Hurricanes in Paradise is a delightful summer read about 4 women whose lives touch each other, changing them irrevocably forever.

Denise Hildreth is a Southern authoress whose deep felt Christianity shines through her books, but not in an overwhelming manner - more in a feel-good factor way.

Set in a top class hotel in Paradise Islands in the Bahamas, 4 women, 3 of them guests and the other staff, the newly appointed Director of Guest Relations, face an oncoming Hurricane together.

The experience brings out their deepest fears and as readers, we learn enough about their backgrounds to understand what makes them tick, and act the way they do.

Hurricane in Paradise is not about hurricanes at all, but about exploring the deep psyche within those women.

This is an excellent read that will have you both laughing and crying, and not wanting to put the book down at all.

You may even feel sadness at the end, because you want the story to go on.
