Tomorrow There Will Be Sun: A Novel based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Vacation Lit is a thing and I am a sucker for it. Two families arrive in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Jenna has organized the trip to celebrate her husband’s fiftieth birthday–she’s been looking forward to it for months. She’s sure everything is going to be just perfect–and the margarita refills delivered by the house staff certainly don’t hurt, either. What could go wrong? – Indiebound A lot, but not in the way you expect. I imagined a kidnapping or a murder or some psychotic episode but this vacation goes wrong in the way many vacations go wrong; small, subtle clues that all is not what you pictured and that life is about to get challenging. Annoying, perfect friends, a husband who spends too much time working even while on vacation, teens who go off to do their own thing only to leave their parents worrying about their whereabouts. And then in the midst of it all, a full staff of servants who become reluctant witnesses to it all falling apart. I love vacation lit. I don’t travel much so when an author takes me to another country through her writing and keeps me turning those pages, then I consider it a win. I was entertained and the story was realistic in what could happen on a vacation like this one. I felt as if I got to know the characters pretty well and the pace felt right. If you enjoy vacation lit, give Tomorrow There Will Be Sun a try.
This one left me feeling a bit conflicted about how much I truly enjoyed the book. I can't say I really liked any of the characters but yet I did have an interest in finding out what was going to happen in their lives. I guess I can file this one under the category of it was an okay way to pass the time but I probably won't remember much about this book within a couple months. Jenna arrives in Puerto Vallarta to celebrate her husband's 50th birthday with her family. They will be sharing a house with her husband's business partner Solly, and his wife and kids. But this dream vacation isn't going to be a ton of fun for everyone, especially Jenna. This is one of those stories in which it really seems like nothing much happens but yet everything changes. There's some build up to the big drama that happens near the end of the book but in some ways I felt the ending needed more work. I don't need everything to be wrapped up in an ending but in this case it felt rushed. The book is a quick read and I definitely think the author could have devoted some more pages to the last few chapters. There's nothing significantly wrong with the book but in my opinion there's nothing that really stands out about it either. Maybe if you have more in common with the main character it will be a more meaningful read. One thing is for certain, if these characters were real, you couldn't pay me enough to go on vacation with them! I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway but was under no obligation to post a review. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
