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.

Very frustrating all around
I got all the way through, but it was painful. The story was long and redundant. There are so many times that I thought Brooke (the main character) was annoying and made decisions that made my stomach turn. The narrator made many of the characters sound whiny, and it was hard to listen to.

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.
