Family, Friendship, Love & Sibling Rivalry.
Martin and Peggy Chance worked hard to build and create a beautiful family for their three children, Ford, Cooper, and Palmer. Unfortunately for them, everything they’ve built has fallen apart, including their family, the lives and loves of their children, and their family business. Now it’s going to take drastic measures to make everything alright.
Having read and loved Meghan Quinn’s last book, The Wedding Game, I jumped at the chance (no pun intended) to read The Reunion. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite love this book as much as the last. For me, this was missing the fun, light, spark of the last book. Here, we have 3 siblings, who were once very close and who have grown apart, and the family bond and their family business are suffering because of it. While they are now navigating romantic relationships, those too are failing because their lives are a mess. At this point, they must figure out what’s gone wrong with their family unit, in order to make everything else go right.
What I Loved: The relationship with Ford and Larkin. I adored Larkin. Let me just say that Ford was darn lucky. The same goes for Cooper and Nora. Nora’s snarkiness was the bomb!
What I disliked: Palmer. There was nothing about Palmer that I liked. The same goes for Palmer and Beau. Sadly, while I’m all for families and siblings repairing their relationships, this element of the story was lackluster and in the end, I felt like there was way too much going on in this novel.
Though this wasn’t my favorite novel, I still enjoyed the writing and the relationships for the most part and will be on the lookout for Meghan Quinn’s next novel.
Thanks to NetGalley and Montlake for the arc.
