A Booklist Pick of the Week

Spend your winter on sunlit shores in the New York Times bestselling follow-up to Winter in Paradise, as secret lives and new loves emerge under the bright Caribbean sky.

A year ago, Irene Steele had the shock of her life: her loving husband, father to their grown sons and successful businessman, was killed in a helicopter crash. But that wasn't Irene's only shattering news: he'd also been leading a double life on the island of St. John, where another woman loved him, too.

Now Irene and her sons are back on St. John, determined to learn the truth about the mysterious life -- and death -- of a man they thought they knew. Along the way, they're about to learn some surprising truths about their own lives, and their futures.

Lush with the tropical details, romance, and drama that made Winter in Paradise a national bestseller, What Happens in Paradise is another immensely satisfying page-turner from one of America's most beloved and engaging storytellers.

Superb...Hilderbrand hits all the right notes about life in a tightly knit family, and this crowd-pleaser is sure to satisfy both her fans and newcomers alike. Publishers Weekly, starred review
Hilderbrand's characters are utterly convincing and immediately draw us into their problems, from petty to grave...To use the parlance of the period, a highly relevant retrospective. Kirkus
She presents another breezy yet gritty novel with Summer of '69... Simple, sassy, and continuously engaging, Summer of '69 fits neatly into the nostalgic reader's beach bag. NPR
Hilderbrand's books keep getting better and better. Bookreporter
An engrossing tale of an iconic American summer People Magazine
The grande dame of beach reads. Liz Egan, New York Times Book Review
Once again, Hilderbrand demonstrates her mastery of immersive escapism with a carefully deployed pineapple-banana smoothie or the blue tile of an outdoor shower. . . .The absolute pleasure of the reading experience combined with a cliff-hanger ending will have readers anxiously awaiting the conclusion to the trilogy. Booklist (starred review)
You'll be counting the days until you can return to the Virgin Islands with these characters in the concluding volume of the trilogy. Print the bumper sticker -- 'I'd Rather Be Living in an Elin Hilderbrand Novel.' Kirkus (starred review)
“This suspenseful and emotionally riveting novel is the second edition to the Paradise series, but the first installment, Winter in Paradise, should be read prior to this.” New York Journal of Books
“Once again, Hilderbrand demonstrates her mastery of immersive escapism with a carefully deployed pineapple-banana smoothie or the blue tile of an outdoor shower. The cautious steadiness of Irene and Huck counterbalances the drama of the younger cast, though there are plenty of complicated feelings to go around…The absolute pleasure of the reading experience combined with a cliff-hanger ending will have readers anxiously awaiting the conclusion to the trilogy.” Booklist (starred review)
“[A] diary and a cadre of FBI agents begin to provide answers to the questions left dangling in Volume 1 [Winter in Paradise], and romantic prospects unfold for all three Steeles…You’ll be counting the days until you can return to the Virgin Islands with these characters in the concluding volume of the trilogy. Print the bumper sticker: ‘I’d Rather Be Living in an Elin Hilderbrand Novel.’” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
