Who wouldn't want an all-expenses-paid vacation at a luxury villa in Jamaica with old friends? In Sarah Pekkanen's
fourth novel, The Best of Us
, four college friends reunite in Jamaica to celebrate one of their 35th birthdays. But things are not as blissful as they seem. Each of the friends brings their own "baggage" to the island--a stressed out mother, a faltering marriage, and uncertain health. As a hurricane approaches Jamaica, the friendships turn turbulent as well. As the novel progresses, they each must resolve their own issues.
