The Reunion by Samantha Hayes @bookouture @samhayes


Book Description:
They were all there the day your sister went missing.
Who is lying? Who is next?

THEN – In charge of her little sister at the beach, Claire allowed Eleanor to walk to the shop alone to buy an ice cream. Placing a coin into her hand, Claire told her to be quick, knowing how much she wanted the freedom.

Eleanor never came back.

NOW – The time has finally come to sell the family farm and Claire is organising a reunion of her dearest friends, the same friends who were present the day her sister went missing.

When another girl disappears, long-buried secrets begin to surface. One of the group hides the darkest secret of them all…

My Thoughts:

Ooh what a dark and compelling read this is.

I liked Claire from the off. She is a wife and mother who is trying to keep everything together. She has never gotten over her sister disappearing or the guilt that came with it. When her dad is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, she throws herself into getting everyone back together.

There are so many likeable characters in the story. From Maggie, Claire’s childhood best friend and Nick, the love interest when Claire was younger. They all have a bit of a history of their own and I enjoyed finding out more about them the further into the story I got. As so many of them were likeable. I couldn’t imagine how any of them could be connected with the disappearances.

The Reunion is an unputdownable and gripping read. I pretty much read it in one go as I was desperate to find out how it would end and what had really happened to Eleanor. It certainly had me feeling some very mixed emotions that I wasn’t expecting. A definite must read for fans of this genre.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
