Sometimes family knows best and their meddling is exactly what you need to find your destiny—a big-hearted, tender romance from debut author Libby Hubscher.

Marin Cole has never seen the ocean. Ever since her journalist mother died on an assignment, Marin has played it safe, refusing to set foot outside the state of Tennessee. Her wild-child younger sister, Sadie, has trotted the globe as a photographer, taking on all kinds of dangerous assignments.

When Sadie returns from a tough assignment and looks a little worse for wear, Marin reluctantly agrees to a sisters’ spa weekend on the tropical island of Saba. But her lifelong fear of travel is affirmed when Sadie misses the flight, Marin’s luggage gets mixed up with another passenger’s, and during turbulence, she nearly throws up on Lucas, the handsome stranger who stole her sister’s seat.

What Marin doesn’t know is that Sadie never planned on coming on the trip at all. Instead she has a life-changing plan for Marin—and the mysterious stranger, Lucas. Marin steps outside her comfort zone and with each breathtaking experience, gets closer to discovering her true self…and closer to falling in love.

Story Locale: Tennessee and Saba, Caribbean Netherlands

A DAZZLING DEBUT, with a smart, fun, fresh voice

SISTERLY LOVE: Marin and Sadie are total opposites, and when Marin’s uptightness clashes with Sadie’s carefree, adventure-junkie personality, it makes for hilarious banter

EXTREMELY MOVING STORY: Sadie keeps it a secret, but she has a life-threatening illness. Libby writes about Sadie’s journey with incredible compassion and empathy—there will be no dry-eyed readers!

PERFECT FOR FANS of jet-setting locales and life-changing happily ever afters

“Fun beach read + heartfelt sister bonds + self-discovery journey + slow burning romance = 100% pure pleasure!” —Priscilla Oliveras, USA Today Bestseller, on Meet Me in Paradise

Praise for Meet Me in Paradise

Meet Me in Paradise is such a compelling read! By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, Libby Hubscher truly takes us on a journey as Marin learns to find happiness on her own terms. Her adventures are brought so vividly to life that I want to start a #ProjectParadise of my own!”—Jen DeLuca, author of Well Played

Meet Me In Paradise is a stunning tale of love, loss, and the capacity for wonder. Marin’s adventure will touch anyone who has ever felt adrift in a sea of responsibility and decided to swim toward the shore. Hubscher expertly crafts a delicious blend of humor, whimsy, and raw emotion that left me laughing, crying, and unable to put it down.”—Denise Williams, author of How to Fail at Flirting

“Both a romantic escape and an ode to sisterhood, Meet Me in Paradise made me swoon, laugh, and then sneaked up on me and made me cry. Marin and Sadie are the beating heart of this story—I adored them in all their wild, wonderful messiness. A radiantly hopeful book.”—Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of The Ex Talk
 
Meet Me in Paradise will sweep you off your feet. Marin’s leap into the unknown is full of love, romance and adventure, and I felt like I was right there with her on the pristine beaches of Saba as she climbs mountains, dives for pearls, and learns how to open herself up to the possibilities of love.”—Sonya Lalli, author of Serena Singh Flips the Script

“Hubscher’s debut novel is the perfect book for anyone longing for family, travel, and romance. Prepare for some tears mixed with the happy-ever-afters.”Library Journal

“A poignant, emotionally authentic story of sisterly bonds and unexpected love…This is sure to tug at readers’ heartstrings.”Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Debuting author Hubscher gently weaves in the more somber story lines, so readers aren’t blindsided yet will still feel the full emotional impact. The romance blooms beautifully, and while there are several complex and endearing secondary characters, this is primarily Marin’s story told mostly through her own captivating narrative. Tissues should be on hand.”Booklist

“Not simply a breezy romantic comedy, Meet Me in Paradise captures the duality of life’s highs and lows. This romantic comedy offers tropical vacation mishaps, a burgeoning romance and an undercurrent of heartbreak.”Shelf Awareness
