Meet Me in Paradise
“Everything great is on the other side of fear.”
Thank you Berkley Publishing for gifting me a copy of Meet me in Paradise!
“Ever since her journalist mother died on assignment, Marin has played it safe, refusing to set foot outside the state of Tennessee. Her wild-child younger sister, Sadie, has trotted the globe as a photographer, living off of art and adrenaline.
When Sadie returns from a tough assignment abroad and looks a little worse for wear, Marin reluctantly agrees to a sisters’ spa weekend on the tropical island of Saba. But her lifelong fear of travel is affirmed when Sadie misses the flight, Marin’s luggage gets mixed up with another passenger’s, and an episode of turbulence sends her hurtling into the lap of Lucas Tsai, the handsome stranger who stole her sister’s seat.
For the first time in a long time, Marin has to step outside of her comfort zone as she explores the island with Lucas and learns what she’s been missing out on. With each breathtaking new experience, Marin gets closer to her real self, the man she’s falling for, and the heart-wrenching truth about why she’s there in the first place.”
Take a look at that gorgeous cover. It’s beautiful, right? It makes you want to pack up your bags and travel to some tropical location and soak up the beautiful sun. You would never think that a book with as gorgeous a cover as this would take all of your emotions and turn you into a sobbing mess by the end. But, that’s what this one did. Seriously.
I knew from Sadie’s first chapter that there wasn’t something quite right but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I didn’t predict the outcome until halfway through the book and it wrecked me.
Libby Hubscher writes with such heart and vivid descriptions that, as the reader, you feel the emotions of the characters and it feels like you are with them on the beautiful Saba island. By the way, I looked Saba up, and from what I can tell, this place is real and the people sound as kind as Hubscher described them.
The only issue that I had with this book was that I needed more of Sadie and Felix. I honestly could have read an entire book devoted to their love story. It would have been just as difficult to read but I think their story needs a book.
I can’t recommend Meet Me in Paradise enough. The book will be published on March 30th and I highly recommend bumping this to the top of your reading list! Pre-order it now through this link!
