Isabela's Island is a story of friendship, love, mystery, adventure, and humor. Five quirky women married with children first meet in the Houston suburbs and become fast friends after sharing in common such things as loneliness and their love of tennis. Off on their eagerly-anticipated, yearly girls' trip-this time to the Grand Caymans-they are temporarily free from husbands, kids, and PTA meetings.
