"Dana Reinhardt is the Nora Ephron we've all been missing."
- Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of The High Tide Club

A private Mexican villa is the backdrop to this smart, absorbing story of a milestone vacation in a tropical paradise gone wrong, wrong, wrong.

Two families arrive in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation in a villa right on the water - complete with five bedrooms, swimming pool, and rooftop Jacuzzi. Jenna has organized the trip to celebrate her husband's fiftieth birthday, and she's been looking forward to it for months. Jenna is the consummate planner, who feels that even she has outdone herself this time. It’s perfect - a masterpiece of relaxation and luxury - and the margaritas delivered by the staff certainly don't hurt, either. What could go wrong?

But soon, there is trouble in paradise. 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. What happened to those "high-value" minutes with her family? 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.

Smart, relatable, and sharply funny, Tomorrow There Will Be Sun is the ideal getaway companion -- whether you’re putting it in your carry-on to read on the beach or looking to escape the dead-of-winter blues.

"Tomorrow There Will Be Sun is precise, witty, and honest."
- Beth Kephart, author of Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir

"A sunny, sharp and whip-smart book."
- Daniel Handler, New York Times bestselling author of All the Dirty Parts

"I read this book exactly how it's meant to be read, in one big gulp, ideally sitting beneath an umbrella, with a hibiscus margarita in hand. Funny and wise, it delivers a gut punch that sent tears rolling down my sunburned cheeks."
– Ayelet Waldman, bestselling author of A Really Good Day

"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

"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 The High Tide Club

"This book is a tropical-getaway fantasy, a compulsively honest story about middle age and family life, and . . . a page-turner. Not a word is wasted."
- Rebecca Stead, New York Times bestselling author of When You Reach Me

"Tomorrow There Will Be Sun begins and ends with the perfectly mixed cocktail. I urge you: Drink up!"
- Katie Williams, author of Tell the Machine Goodnight

"A smart, 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

"The characters are clear and complex, revealing layers instead of slipping into satire. Jenna is both the most and least appealing (in other words, relatable) as she tries to keep her family together without killing them. 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."
