Back Cover:
From the moment Riley Sinclair stepped onto Paradise Island, Bahamas, and into her new job as director of guest relations at a five-star resort, she felt the pieces of her once-broken life finally coming together.  But the waters become choppy when Riley discovers that some who come to the Atlantis hotel arrive with more than just suitcases and suntan lotion in tow - they’re accompanied by their lurking demons, paralyzing secrets, and overwhelming fears.
Riley and three women 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 and lunacy, heartache and healing.

My Review:
When I had the opportunity to read and review this book, I was really excited.  I had never read anything written by Riley Sinclair, but I love finding new authors I enjoy!!  I was not disappointed!!  This is a fabulous book.  It not only takes you on a journey to the Bahamas, it takes you on a journey through the lives of four women all of which are going through major storms of their own.  Some with storms in their spiritual lives, some with storms in their personal lives, and all with a storm threatening their physical lives!!  Through all the storms it is quite clear that God is with them, loving on them every step of the way even when they don’t see it or feel it.  I would definitely recommend this book to everyone!!  It covers everything from God working in the lives of people, to romance, to suspense.  It made me laugh out loud and it made me cry!!  Great book, can’t wait to read more from her!!
I would like to thank Tyndale Publishers for the complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
Happy Reading!!

I loved this book as well! I was hoping it would be really good (I kind of felt like I was taking a chance requesting it) and it didn't disappoint. I'm definitely going to look for her other books.
