Publisher's Summary

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

When 99-year-old heiress Josephine Bettendorf Warrick summons attorney Brooke Trappnell to her 20,000-acre barrier island home, Brooke is puzzled. Everybody in the South has heard about the eccentric millionaire mistress of Talisa, but Brooke has never actually met her. Josephine’s cryptic note says she wants to discuss an important legal matter, but why enlist Brooke and not the prestigious Atlanta law firm she has used for years? Brooke travels to Shellhaven and meets the cagey Josephine, whose home is a crumbling pink mansion at the edge of the turquoise sea.

Over the course of a few meetings, Josephine spins a tale of old friendships, dark secrets, betrayal, and a long-unsolved murder. She is hiring Brooke for two reasons: first, to protect her island from those who would despoil her land, and second, to help her make amends with the heirs of the 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. To fulfill a dying woman’s wishes, Brooke must find Josephine’s friends’ descendants and bringing them together on Talisa for a reunion of women who’ve actually never met. But in doing so, Brooke unleashes the makings of a scandal that could make someone rich beyond their wildest dreams...or cause them to be in the crosshairs of a murderer....

The High Tide Club is Mary Kay Andrews at her Queen-of-the-Beach-Books best, a story shrouded in mystery, Spanish moss, verandah cocktails, 1940s dinner dances, love lost, and possibly...love found.

Probably her best book ever!

Great book. Loved the complexity of the story. Could have done without the political undertones. I don't care for personal biases in fiction

Not my favorite

I usually really enjoy Mary Kay Andrews but this book is annoying me like crazy. I can't decide if it's the narration or if it's the story--I'm torn. I'm not finding it interesting, and the narrator, who I usually enjoy, is horrible for this.

Disappointing...

Both the story & narration were quite a disappointment. Should have returned this one; won’t hesitate to do so next time.

Most interesting book author has written!

I have been a fan of a Mary Kay Andrews since her first book and have enjoyed her storytelling, characters, and wit. Just my opinion, but I think she really developed an in-depth story with this book with lots of turns and twists and women I would love to hang out with Mermaid Beach. My only regret is what happened to poor Harris?

A bit long, but a good read

Although this book was a bit long in the tooth, and to my disappointment the storyline for the character called Gabe did not go far enough, I still enjoyed the book and the friendship between the characters.

Too liberal

Great story with a political slant that took from a beautifully woven story. I love this authors stories and descriptive settings. I waited for this book for months and with the exception of pushing a political agenda the story was wonderful he told

incredible!

Oh Ms. Mary Kay! I always rate but rarely review. But, I must give u a 2 thumbs up on this departure from your normally wacky crazy deliciously entertaining novels. This book was so heartwarming yet suspenseful ..... and the characters ....Wow! They go from angelic to pure evil. And I truly loved the story. This book is a real winner and a must-read. I'm getting ready to listen again right now!! Thank You!!! (loved the narrator also which is not always the case) Shy Smith
