Sarah Pekkanen's novels may be chicklit, but I find her characters to be well-developed and with plenty of human foibles. None is only what one sees on the surface. All have things going on that they try to keep from the others. But on a weeklong trip, sharing a villa together with their significant others, and experiencing a hurricane firsthand, all this makes it hard to keep anything/everything hidden. How things come out, how everyone deals with newfound information, contribute to the satisfaction of the reader (of me at least).
