Hailed as one of America’s most insightful and inventive storytellers, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard now takes listeners on a breathtaking journey of suspense and high adventure.

Back in high school, Tracy, Olivia, and Holly were known as The Godmothers, the girls everyone wanted to be and know. Unlike many friendships, their bond survived the years. Now twenty years later, their glamorous leader, Olivia, whose wealthy Italian husband has died, suggests they reunite on her return to the United States with a luxury sailboat crossing in the Caribbean. With Tracy’s college-aged daughter and an attentive two-man crew, they sail into paradise.

But then, the smallest mistake triggers a series of devastating events. Suddenly, in a desperate fight for survival, the women battle the elements, the threat of modern-day piracy, and their own frailties. STILL SUMMER is at once a spellbinding adventure and a story about the bonds that hold friend to friend and mothers to daughters, and how facing our own mortality tests the truth of everything we think we know.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/20/2014

    " I really enjoyed this one! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ruth | 2/19/2014

    " You know those books that are so bad you just can't put them down? This is one of them. Ok I was never expecting much, but when I bought it from the bargin bin ($2!), I thought...how bad could it be? Well it was worse than that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl Lewis | 2/15/2014

    " Really slow read for the first third of the book. It did get better after that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/26/2014

    " The story about friends that go on a sailing trip kept my interest but did not wow me. Everything that could go wrong on the trip did and then some. The pirates, the men overboard, the shootings, the blood poisoning - it all seemed like too much. But the book was good enough to finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shari | 1/21/2014

    " A group of high school friends take a Carribean cruise on a private sailboat. They encountered an unexpected storm that endangers everyone's life. The women learn more about themselves and each other as they struggle to hold on to life while facing obstacles of no food, no water, and personal demons. Not Mitchard's finest work, but her fans will want to be sure to read it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa Kayden | 1/17/2014

    " Terrible book. I had loved Mitchard's other books, but this book was poorly written, the characters were not likable, and the plot was so far out there and unbelievable, I couldn't stand it. I should have quit in the middle when I knew it was bad, but I finished it anyway and was disappointed from beginning to end. This book was a FAR cry from "The Deep End of the Ocean" - not even comparable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/13/2014

    " Good beach read - wish it would have ended differently:( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carissa | 1/11/2014

    " This was a great story. A few times I wanted to toss Olivia overboard! I don't think I could be so forgiving for all that she did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 1/7/2014

    " I listened to this in the car. A lot of depressing (will it never end) stuff but still good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachael | 1/1/2014

    " Do not read this book. It is tedious, and I finally skipped to the end and read the last chapter just to find out how it ended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/25/2013

    " Mitchard does not disappoint with Still Summer. Without being TOO chick-lit, she incorporates light romance, mystery, adventure, and relationships. A nice, quick, light read, without being entirely predictable. Only a little bit predictable. It is forgivable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 12/10/2013

    " I read this book in 2 days. Makes you think about who want to take on vacation with you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Treanor | 12/2/2013

    " I love Jacquelyn's writing and I am never disappointed. I thought this book was an excellent read...her grasp on women's friendships is wonderful. Great to find a book that doesn't just end with everything all wrapped up in a pretty bow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 4/28/2013

    " Pretty awful book. Good for mindless reading. Poor plot development, poor dialogue, completely unrealistic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 3/25/2013

    " The story itself was pretty good, but I was not a fan of the writing. It was incoherent and would jump characters and situations without notice, which I found slightly annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/16/2013

    " Great action read for women! It's a thriller and a story about relationships. The everyday woman put in an unbelievable situation and overcoming the odds. I recommend reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elsie | 11/10/2012

    " Good character development, amazing story, too much of a fairy tale ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maura | 7/8/2012

    " not great...it was all over the place.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Carty Lepri | 6/20/2012

    " After a loggy start, this turned into a powerful and moving story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eieios | 6/5/2012

    " This is the second book I have read by this author. I loved CAGE OF STARS. I loved this one too. A friend of mine thinks her books are too harsh or scary, but I find I can't put them down! You just never know what new adventure or disaster is around the corner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee Scocos | 5/20/2012

    " Predictable but still a good beach read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeanette | 10/27/2011

    " This is the worst of any Mitchard books I've read. I did finish it, just so I could see how it ended, so I guess it had SOME appeal, but she seems to have lost her touch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pati | 5/15/2011

    " Really enjoyed listening to this one...about three women and one's teenage daughter who went on sailing vacation that turned paradise into a sun-baked hell. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxanneharrington | 5/7/2011

    " yes, it was a thrill ride and had some unexpected turns. Very quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 4/18/2011

    " Great action read for women! It's a thriller and a story about relationships. The everyday woman put in an unbelievable situation and overcoming the odds. I recommend reading this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 4/17/2011

    " First Jacquelyn mitchard book I have not loved "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gwen | 3/24/2011

    " I can say yet, b/c I haven't gotten very far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 3/21/2011

    " I would have given it four stars had it ended one chapter sooner. I was actually in tears at the end of the second last chapter. And then came, what I feel was an unecessary and flat last chapter. Very suspenseful read though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mandy37 | 1/27/2011

    " Did not care for this at all. I really have to stop buying clearanced books. "

    " This would make a great movie! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 11/22/2010

    " It was one of those books where I was intrigued by the story, yet frustrated. The characters were not very likable, and everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, which I don't like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 10/31/2010

    " This book started out ok but then it really grabbed me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raidene | 10/1/2010

    " I read the author's Deep End of the Ocean years ago on Oprah's recommendation and really enjoyed it. I haven't read anything else by her over the years but thought I would give this one a try. What a disappointment. I can't believe I read the whole plodding thing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 9/30/2010

    " very good book, a little violent but a good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 9/3/2010

    " After a loggy start, this turned into a powerful and moving story! "

    " about a 3rd of the way in, I can really relate to the mother/daughter conflict. And feel something ominous brewing on the water. "
