Yet as the families settle into their vacation routines, their best friends suddenly seem like annoying strangers, and even Jenna's reliable husband, Peter, is sharing clandestine phone calls with someone--but who? Jenna's teenage daughter, Clem, is spending an awful lot of time with Malcolm, whose questionable rep got him expelled from school. Jenna's dream of the ultimate celebration begins to crack and eventually crumbles completely, leaving her wondering whom she can trust, and whether her privileged life is about to be changed forever.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book is a tropical-getaway fantasy, a compulsively honest story about middle age and family life, and, against all odds, a page-turner. Not a word is wasted. I loved it. Rebecca Stead, New York Times bestselling author of When You Reach Me
I read Tomorrow There Will Be Sun exactly how it’s meant to be read, in one big gulp, ideally sitting beneath an umbrella, with a hibiscus margarita in hand. It’s funny and wise, and delivers a gut punch that sent tears rolling down my sunburned cheeks. Ayelet Waldman, bestselling author of A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life
A smart and funny novel about what happens when a family must contend with itself in paradise. If you can't escape to your own gorgeous villa, Tomorrow There Will Be Sun is the next best thing. Laura Dave, author of Eight Hundred Grapes 
Tomorrow There Will Be Sun begins and ends with the perfectly mixed cocktail. In the pages between, Dana Reinhardt serves us an expert narrative brew of feeling characters, family intrigue, summer escape, and a twist of plot. I urge you: Drink up! Katie Williams, author of Tell the Machine Goodnight
“Dana Reinhardt has written a sunny subversive novel about cossetted vacationers winding their way through mine-fields (internal and external), in search of the earthly pleasures they somehow believe to be their birth right.  Think of it as a beach read--apply sun block, adjust your umbrella--but when you close the book you realize, oh, I get it, there's a tsunami on the way. Scott Spencer, bestselling author of River Under the Road
“Life cannot be scripted, love may or may not be fixed, and no matter where we are, how pretty the sea or sun, reality crashes in. Reinhardt captures the heartbreak implicit in well-burnished plans immaculately in her debut novel for adults. She takes us to a villa that is open to the air and then shows us how walls get raised, and lowered, among those who think they know each other well. Tomorrow There Will Be Sun is precise, witty, and honest. Beth Kephart, author of Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir
Tomorrow There Will Be Sun is escapist fiction without the empty calories, a witty and wise tale of all the ways reality bites. Dana Reinhardt is the Nora Ephron we’ve all been missing. Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of Sunset Beach
The fierce and anxious heroine of this novel is accused of ‘not knowing anything about anything,’ but Dana Reinhardt knows everything about everything: the emotional zig-zags of travel, the complicated loyalties of longtime friends, the secrets and tensions between teenagers and their parents, and the way that a perfect vacation can turn into something far different, under the flushed and furious sun. A sunny, sharp and whip-smart book. Daniel Handler, New York Times bestselling author of All the Dirty Parts
Two families arrive in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for a vacation. But as everyone settles in with their margaritas, cracks start to appear on the surface of the trip. All hell breaks loose. New York Post
On the surface, this is the story of a Mexican beachside villa idyll gone wrong. But it’s really a tale of what we choose not to see when we are on vacation—whether it’s the less-than-rosy reality outside villa walls or the fraying threads of our most intimate relationships. Cue the bottomless margaritas. National Geographic
Reinhardt adroitly navigates the mind of a memorable and unreliable narrator and delivers a page-turner that’s both charming and thoughtful. Publishers Weekly
Reinhardt deftly manipulates the villa in paradise into a gothic labyrinth. . . A tense mystery driven by maternal and wifely anxieties. Kirkus Reviews
The characters are clear and complex, revealing layers instead of slipping into satire. .  . Readers who like sharply observed novels of families falling apart in paradise, like Emma Straub’s The Vacationers, will want to try Reinhardt’s first novel for adults. Booklist
This novel is a ray of light in the canon of vacation lit—in Reinhardt’s hands, paradise gone wrong feels very right. People
