Thereunion copy

We are thrilled to share Kit Frick's lates release with you all. It's called The Reunion and it sounds amazing!
  The Reunion 
  Publication Date: August 29, 2023
  Genre: YA Thriller 
  Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books/ Simon & Schuster 

  From the author of I Killed Zoe Spanos comes a YA thriller in the vein of The White Lotus and Karen M. McManus’s The Cousins following 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 CancĂșn, 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.

I received The Reunion in return for an honest review from R&R Book Tours as part of the Book tour. 

The Mayweather's are all headed for a fun family reunion in CancĂșn, Mexico to celebrate the upcoming wedding and blending of two families. The family will have lots of bonding time over the next week and secrets that have long since been buried will start to be revealed. What happens when a body turns up? 

I love that we switch POV between the cousins because we get to know what's really going on as the story unfolds. I'm not sure I had a favorite of the kids they all have a unique part of the story to tell. I think Theo might be my favorite if I had to choose but he's new to the family as his father is marrying into the Mayweather's. 

I was really excited to take part in The Reunion Tour because I've had my eye on this book for a while. I love a good thriller and this one doesn't disappointment it's filled with twists and turns that kept me on my toes to the very end. The characters are great I found that I was able to connect with each one. I liked the way the author has these time jumps as the case of the murder is unfolding. 

This is my first book by the author and I hope to check out her other books after enjoying this one. I enjoyed her story telling style it was easy to get lost in the story and I devoured it in just one afternoon unable to put it down till I found out how it was all going to end. I've been in a huge slump when it comes to thrillers and The Reunion was just what I needed to pull me out. I really enjoyed it perfect for a quick fast paced YA thriller.
