  • Poignant Novel About Sisterhood

    3.5 stars CW: death of family member, cancer, anxiety, grief, marijuana use, airplane/boat turbulence Meet Me in Paradise was not quite what I was expecting. Even though the vibrant cover screams romcom, I knew from the blurb that it would be an emotional read. I was not prepared, however, for just how heartbreaking and gut-wrenching it would turn out to be. I personally don't consider Meet Me In Paradise to be a romance. I would consider it more a beautiful and moving novel about sisterhood with romantic elements thrown in. This book hurt my heart, but it also made me laugh and feel hopeful. I couldn't help but imagine my own sisters while reading Marin and Sadie's story. Emotions run high throughout and don't let up. I loved how the author used the past and present to weave the story together piece by piece. It did take me a bit to feel truly invested in what was happening, but once things started falling into place, I didn't want to put it down. Some things you can expect in Meet Me in Paradise: - A relatable and sometimes excruciatingly painful journey of self discovery. The depiction of Marin's grief and coping was so heartfelt. I was rooting for her throughout. - Wonderfully entertaining, generous, and loving secondary characters. I loved all the residents of Saba and of course, Felix. They brought some much needed levity to the story. - Found families. This ties back into the secondary characters, but I really was so touched by the incredible kindness displayed and how everyone pulls together in crisis. - A slow burn romance with a grumpy but swoony bajillionaire who can whisper sweet nothings to you in 12 different languages. Lucas's generosity and thoughtfulness were unparalleled. - A beautiful island setting, with gorgeous descriptions that made me feel like I was right there in Saba too. Some things that didn't quite work for me (possible spoilers): - Deception plots just aren't my favorite. The secrets dragged on for too long. I understand Lucas was keeping his promise, but he really should have said something once things started to shift between him and Marin. - Lucas's wealth and ability to fulfill any request felt a little over the top at times. It was too convenient to answer any issue with a "Lucas took care of it" fix. - Ted. He helped drive home how far Marin had come and changed, but I don't think his reappearance was really needed and he added unnecessary drama to an already heavy story. I'm glad that things worked out the way they did, but it felt so anticlimactic considering how long he hung around in the story. - The ending felt a bit rushed. So much of the book focused on implementing Sadie's plan and Marin's journey, but we didn't really get to see Marin in all her new found glory. It's a hopeful closure for sure, but I think I wanted to see her thriving on her own a bit more. - As much as I liked the story, it was extremely sad. I enjoyed the writing a great deal, but I'm not sure my heart can ever take a reread. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*
