Grace was trying to recover from being left at the altar by the man who had been her best friend since grade school. The fact that Corey had ditched her for some bimbo he’d met during his bachelor party wasn’t even the worst thing that had happened to her. No, the worst part was that she’d gone on her honeymoon alone, had a one-night stand with a sexy bartender, and nine months later had ended up with the surprise of her life. Alan was right where he wanted to be—in the thick of singlehood. He loved his job as a bartender at The Boardwalk Bar and Grill, and he finally had money to spare. He enjoyed spending his days on the gulf and his nights with a new lady. Life was great. That is, until Grace returns. He’d had a fling with her over a year ago and had fallen hard and fast for the blonde. But she’d returned home and had taken the last shred of hope for a better life along with her.

In May of 1986, Drew Jackson reflects on the steps-or, more likely, the missteps-that have brought him to this point in his life. He had it all: a successful international shipping company serving the offshore drilling and exploration industry, corporate jets, friendships with the rich and famous, a big house, and a trophy wife. But it's all about to end. High Tide shows one family's resolve, stamina, and tenacity in developing one of America's most important industries. The story of this visionary generation will engage those who believe in courage, in living their dreams, and in self-determination-to look the unknown in the face and not flinch. "Maxine Domino has written a richly textured, sweepingly panoramic novel that chronicles the heady growth of the oil industry in mid-twentieth century America through the story of one gifted ambitious man. His story is told with the warmth and wisdom of his rural Texas roots. After following my husband for years around the oil fields of southern Louisiana, Nigeria, and Singapore, I am impressed with the authenticity of the novel. Domino has mastered the use of the telling detail and natural dialogue. The story is memorable and the characters finely drawn, a satisfying reading experience." -Barbara Faye Munson, PhD

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Weekenders comes a delightful new novel about new love, old secrets, and the kind of friendship that transcends generations. When ninety-nine-year-old heiress Josephine Bettendorf Warrick summons Brooke Trappnell to Talisa Island, her 20,000 acre remote barrier island home, Brooke is puzzled. Everybody in the South has heard about the eccentric millionaire mistress of Talisa, but Brooke has never met her. Josephine’s cryptic note says she wants to discuss an important legal matter with Brooke, who is an attorney, but Brooke knows that Mrs. Warrick has long been a client of a prestigious Atlanta law firm. Over a few meetings, the ailing Josephine spins a tale of old friendships, secrets, betrayal and a long-unsolved murder. She tells Brooke she is hiring her for two reasons: to protect her island and legacy from those who would despoil her land, and secondly, to help her make amends with the heirs of the long dead 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. When Josephine dies with her secrets intact, Brooke is charged with contacting Josephine’s friends’ descendants and bringing them together on Talisa for a reunion of women who’ve actually never met.
