Paradise awaits.... Now that Cheyenne's murderer has been revealed and Reed knows the truth about who's been stalking her, she's ready to leave the heartache and turmoil of last semester behind. And what better way to recover than a five-star Caribbean vacation? Reed is reunited with former Billings Girls Kiran and Taylor, and she and her friends take over the exclusive island. They spend their days tanning on white-sand beaches and their nights partying on sixty-foot yachts. It's heaven on earth. But as they raise their champagne flutes to toast their friendship, Reed worries that it's all too good to be true. Because even in paradise, the Billings Girls are never far from trouble -- and nothing's more dangerous than the calm before the storm....


I really have no idea what to say about this book, it was another im-between in the series. I love the setting at Easton, so when this one was at some island, I was a little disapointed.

Overall, I guess it was an okay book, but no more than that. There wasn't this fabulous plot line ( it kind of sucked actually) it was a been there done that except in a different setting.

I also didn't like the new characters, there weren't any that were likable. It was kind of like it was pre-determined that you were going to have to dislike them because they were against Reed.

I'm just waiting for the setting to be back at Easton.
