It was the trip of a lifetime…
until someone ended up dead.
When four couples receive invitations to try out a luxury island resort, they are excited for a week of relaxation and reconnecting.
For some, it’s the honeymoon they never had the chance to take.
For others, it’s a last-ditch attempt to save their crumbling marriage.
But when one of the group members ends up dead on the night of a terrible storm, what was once a paradise soon becomes a prison.
Trapped on the island with no cell phone service and no means of escape, the couples fear the worst. What exactly happened to their friend? And could they be next?
Determined to learn the truth, the couples search for answers, but only discover more secrets. Friendships, loyalties, and marriages are put to the ultimate test as they grapple to decide who to trust and who could be a threat.
Will they make it off the island? Or will the perfect getaway turn into their last?
This book was a reality show on steroids! Eight friends, a dream vacation… no strings attached. The problem is life long friends always have a few secrets that they would rather not be discovered. The question is, are those secrets worth killing for? Let’s talk to some of the characters shall we…
It was our first night on the island, and the first night we’d all get to spend together. Little did I know, it was also the only night we’d all be alive.
Brad and Laura- typical married couple. They are busy, hard working, and the parents of two girls. They are definitely in need of this vacation opportunity! I mean how can they pass up an all expense paid vacation on a beautiful tropical island for 6 nights! I mean, Laura’s parents haven’t seen the kids since Christmas anyway so win-win! Nothing to hide here…
But I had no idea that what I thought would be the worst wouldn’t even scratch the surface of the nightmare that was about to unfold.
Nick and Megan- engaged to be married! Megan, fairly new to the friend group since meeting Nick seems like an agreeable, sweet-as-pie, laid back, non judgmental addition. She’s head over heals about Nick and vice versa. Megan can’t help feel a niggling in the back of her head telling her something isn’t right but she keeps confronting Nick about it who reassures her that her feelings are unfounded. They can definitely use an all expense paid trip to a tropical island for 6 nights to unwind before the wedding! Like a pre-honeymoon if you will. Nothing to hide here…
Was I in danger? Were we all?
What was going to happen to the rest of us?
Natasha and Jaren – college sweethearts, once very much in love. Their 17-almost 18 year old son is giving them a run for their money. As he gets older, he seems to have a difficult time adhering to house rules. This drives Natasha crazy especially since her husband isn’t really the best role model when it comes to leaving dirty footprints in the newly shampooed rug. Even though their relationship seems destined for trouble, they agreed that maybe an all expense paid trip to a tropical island for 6 nights wouldn’t be so bad. Nothing to hide here…
Deep down, I couldn’t deny the voice in my head saying that this wasn’t a coincidence or bad timing.
Andy and Emily- Andy, one of the original old friends in the friend group and a “noncommittal-date-a-different-girl-weekly” kind of guy thinks he has met “the one” after dating travel blogger and beauty, Emily. She’s young (1/2 their age), beautiful, sweet, and just happened to be the travel blogger “winner-winner” of the all expense paid vacation (in exchange for a blog review) for her and her newest friend group! Damn those friends are one lucky group…
After arriving on the island, they are ready to feel their toes in the sand, a cold drink in their hands, and the sun on their faces. What could go wrong…
“It’s a small island, and we have a very limited amount of suspects. We’re going to find out the truth about everything.”
Told from alternating perspectives, this story will be sure to have readers thinking about vacationing in a small island without cell service… even with your CLOSEST friends.
