But then the smallest mistake triggers a series of devastating events. Suddenly, in a desperate fight for survival, the women battle the elements, the threat of modern-day piracy, and their own frailties. Still Summer is at once a spellbinding adventure and a story about the bonds that hold friend to friend and mothers to daughters, and how facing our own mortality tests the truth of everything we think we know.

"Fans will enjoy this mix of seafaring adventure and romantic suspense." (Booklist)
This is an adventure and not a mystery, because the story unfolds as one expects it to - plenty of hints are given. Although I was motivated to skip sections because of the female bickering and ruminations, the adventure kept me hooked.
I didn't care for the voices and tone of the characters on the vessel Big Spender. Otherwise, the narration was good.
