"This one's a quintessential summer read: It's based in the Gulf of Mexico so even if you're only sunning at your local beach, you can still daydream of palm trees and pristine waters."
--Marie Claire

"A spellbinding meditation on one woman's unresolved past . . . Consider it required summer reading for anyone still tangled in the tricky project of growing-up."

"A delicious summer read."

"The beautiful descriptions of life under the sea will make you want to take a scuba diving class ASAP."
--Fodor's Travel

"Taylor vividly describes the tropical, touristy setting as she weaves romance and danger, taking the reader on a thrilling Florida vacation with an environmental twist. The Shark Club makes a truly delightful beach read."
--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"A real beach read . . . [Taylor] brings a wealth of sharply observed detail to this novel, from the right way to make key lime pie to the joys of dealing with tourists."
--Tampa Bay Times

"A highly-readable mix of marine science and romance, set on the picturesque beaches of South Florida."
--Birmingham Magazine

"A great summer read whether you're on the beach or just wish you were."

--Susan Casey, author of The Devil's Teeth: A True Story of Obsession and Survival Among America's Great White Sharks

"Captivating . . . An engaging novel about the loves that define our lives."
