With a breakneck pace and cat-and-mouse twists, Spring Break is the ultimate beach read.
"Help me . . ."
These are the last words Chanetelle hears from her friend Ashley, in a static-filled phone call that soon goes dead. Their trip to the island paradise of Artula started the way any trip should, and soon Chanetelle and her friends find themselves in sun-drenched days and party-hopping nights. The vacation is not without its conflicts, however, and old rivalries and new jealousies come to light as the week passes. But no one expects things to turn as ugly as they do. No one expects that they won't all return. And no one expects that murder might be the ultimate souvenir.
When Ashley disappears, the question is asked: Was it a random act of violence? Or is something more sinister going on? And is Ashley really dead, after all?
"Drawing on real-life tragedies, Perrin creates an unforgettable and chilling tale of the seamy side of an island paradise." - Booklist
Set during spring break on the Caribbean island of Artula, Perrin's intriguing if flawed romantic thriller centers on the hunt for college student Ashley Hamilton, who disappears after breaking up with her boyfriend, Ryan Sinclair, and meeting Jason Shear, a New York editor who's researching a story on human trafficking. Jason's sister disappeared on Artula in 1987, and he's learned 19 women have gone missing on the resort island in the last seven years. Jason joins forces with Ashley's friend, Chantelle Higgins, to investigate, while the local authorities remain surprisingly indifferent. After Ashley's family arrives, the stakes rise with the murder of someone with information he wanted to share with Chantelle. Essence bestseller Perrin (We'll Never Tell) succeeds in building a mood of nail-biting suspense, but toward the end the plot takes some dubious twists before rushing to a less than convincing resolution.
A non-stop read!!
What a great book! Great from beginning to end! Couldn't put it down, read it every chance I got even if it was only a few sentences! When I was at work, where I couldn't read, I found myself thinking about the book and what was going to happen in the story!
