The days are slowly getting shorter and that’s a time of year that’s the best for curling up with a book. On rainy and cooler days I enjoy reading exciting books like thrillers and mysteries. The Reunion is that kind of book. So today I want to tell you what I thought of this book.
A big thank you to the publisher for providing me with an eARC to read and review!
A doomed family reunion at a posh Caribbean resort, where old grudges and dangerous secrets culminate in murder.
Eleven Mayweathers went on vacation. Ten came home.
It’s been years since the fragmented Mayweather clan was all in one place, but the engagement of Addison and Mason’s mom to the dad of their future stepbrother, Theo, brings the whole family to sunny Cancún, Mexico, for winter break. Add cousin Natalia to the mix, and it doesn’t take long for tempers to fray and tensions to rise. A week of forced family “fun” reveals that everyone has something to hide, and as secrets bubble to the surface, no one is safe from the fallout. By the end of the week, one member of the reunion party will be dead—and everyone’s a suspect:
The peacekeeper: Addison needs a better hiding place.
The outsider: Theo just wants to mend fences.
The romantic: Natalia doesn’t want to talk about the past.
The hothead: Mason needs to keep his temper under control.
It started as a week in paradise meant to bring them together. But the Mayweathers are about to learn the hard way that family bonding can be deadly.
The Reunion starts out with the family heading to their resort for a week of family bonding. I loved that this book was told from four POVs. It was definitely interesting to read about the way all of the characters thought about their reunion and other family members.
I loved that the author didn’t let us know who was murdered, but that we saw letters from the resort talking about it first. It definitely kept me guessing and wanting to know more. This family has a lot of secrets that they keep and it was interesting to see how this influenced their relationships and interactions with each other. There was lots of drama and reveals and the author knew to tell this in a way that kept me wanting to know more.
My only complaint is that we had quite a long set up for a really quick reveal. I felt the build up didn’t match to how quick we find out what actually happened and some of the consequences at the end of the story. I would’ve love to have that a bit more balanced out. The Reunion was still an interesting read that kept me interested from the beginning to the end. I’ll definitely be reading more by Kit Frick!
The Reunion was a fast read that I enjoyed! Even if this story didn’t end all happily ever after, I wouldn’t say no to a trip to a resort like the one this family went to, haha. Have you read any books lately surrounding family secrets? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
