Summary (From the publisher):

Back in high school, Tracy, Olivia, and Holly were known as The Godmothers, the girls everyone wanted to be and know. Unlike many friendships, their bond survived the years. Now twenty years later, their glamorous leader Olivia, whose wealthy Italian husband has died, suggests they reunite on her return to the United States with a luxury sailboat crossing in the Caribbean. With Tracy's college-aged daughter and an attentive two-man crew, they sail into paradise.

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.

Blurbs:
  • "Sweeps us away on the high seas in glorious Jacquelyn Mitchard style!" Adriana Trigiani
  • "Jacquelyn Mitchard's legions of fans will be swept away by Still Summer, a swashbuckling high-seas adventure tale with a big difference. The women in this novel aren't damsels in distress, it's up to them to save the day! Jacquelyn Mitchard is a master storyteller who manages to create raging storms and hormones with equal flair." Claire Cook, author of Must Love Dogs and Life's a Beach
  • "With memorable characters and intricate plotting, Jacquelyn Mitchard has created a fascinating study of strength and secrets, friendship and betrayal." Carolyn Parkhurst, author of The Dogs of Babel
  • "Jacquelyn Mitchard is a master at laying bare the souls of her characters, and in Still Summer, she gives us four unforgettable women who must fight to survive. Slowly and expertly, Mitchard ratchets up the tension in this pulse-pounding tale of courage, betrayal, and high-seas terror." Tess Gerritsen, author of The Mephisto Club
  • "A thriller about real women in a frightening, gritty, stomach-churning circumstance. It is a story about hell in paradise, about the real selves that lie beneath the veneers we wear most days, and it sails to a place far away from the land of sentimentality and melodrama. Which may make it, I suppose, the prototype of a new genre, chick noir. In any case, it nailed me to the chair." Craig Holden, author of The River Sorrow
  • "In Still Summer, Mitchard clears all the hurdles she has set for itself with such panache that you don't even notice what a skillful performance it is, you're lost in the story. Dazzlingly funny, utterly absorbing, and totally surprising, Still Summer moves fast and pays off big." Beth Gutcheon, author of More Than You Know
  • "Still Summer is a finely written tale you will not be able to put down, but it is also an insightful and moving exploration of the nature of enduring friendship between women. What happens when these ties are put to the most severe test? What happens when fate sets us adrift in lethal waters under a merciless sun? With her characteristic generosity, intelligence, and warmth, Jacquelyn Mitchard illuminates this central question in an utterly compelling novel you will not soon forget." Andre Dubus III
