“Tomorrow There Will Be Sun” by Dana Reinhardt

When two families head south of the border to hold a joint 50th birthday celebration, things begin to unravel in the perfect beachside paradise. In “Tomorrow There Will Be Sun,” Jenna just wants to create the perfect family vacation and soak up every moment of a trip she spent months planning. Of course, not everything is going to be perfect as she’s sharing the vacation with her husband’s boisterous best friend and his family. Jenna’s teenage daughter is more interested in calling her boyfriend than spending time with her family and her husband, Peter, keeps taking mysterious phone calls. Tensions rise as the character’s relationships contract and fracture throughout a tumultuous week.
Reinhardt’s writing is a sharp, thrilling read that pulls the reader into Jenna’s anxious mind. Whether or not you find yourself on the beach, this book should be read with a margarita in hand as Jenna navigates understanding new information about her loved ones on what should have been her perfect vacation. Make sure you pack “Tomorrow There Will Be Sun” in your carry-on for your spring vacation.
