Hailed as one of America's most insightful and inventive storytellers, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard now takes listeners on a breathtaking journey of suspense and high adventure. 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. STILL SUMMER is at once a spellbinding adventure and a story about the bonds that hold friend to friend and mothers to daughters, and how facing our own mortality tests the truth of everything we think we know.

Professional reviews

"Jacquelyn Mitchard gives the "reunion" novel a dark twist in this story, which takes four women on a dream vacation that goes very, very wrong. As the group is sailing in the Caribbean, a storm leaves their sailboat adrift, and the women must battle dwindling food supplies, sharks, and, worst of all, pirates. Kirsten Potter's narration handles the action and suspense, as well as the romance, smoothly, with appropriate emotion and pacing. Her attempt at accents for some of the characters is a bit strained, but she still provides the listener clear differentiation between speakers and distinct character development. Potter's presentation of this fast-paced story is enjoyable and easy to follow. M.O.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
