REVIEW: I have to say The Reunion is not a typical Kiersten Modglin book. That’s ok because…I LOVED IT! If you haven’t read any of her books yet, this book would be a good one to start your journey. It would be like riding the ferris wheel first and then stepping up to the big bad roller coaster when you pick up one of her previous books.
I didn’t experience the usual whiplash with this book that I normally do. It was a gradual climb to the climax at the end of the book. Kiersten’s books usually have many shocking moments along the way. This book had some interesting happenings but, nothing that grabbed me by the throat and took my breath away. I love a book that departs from the authors normal. To me, it shows diverstity.
I merrily followed the story to the surprising ending. There was one chapter that left me hanging and I just couldn’t help myself, I had to flip ahead to see what was going to happen. I never do that! The chapters flip back and forth from the past to the present until they meet up toward the end. The story is about a High School Reunion and what happened during Cait’s senior year that caused her to flee her hometown. A lot of us find it difficult to revisit our high school years and attend the reunions.
I really enjoyed this book even though I didn’t experience any anxiety or panic attacks during the reading of The Reunion. It was still an interesting and fun read and a nice change. Thank you, Kiersten for always taking us somewhere new and different. It’s always a pleasure!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Hotel Lilith holds terrible memories for Cait Du Bois.
The darkest night of her life happened within its walls.
Once, she vowed never to return to the place that reminds her of the horror she experienced. But when the hotel is chosen as the location for her high school reunion, Cait finds herself unable to resist the appeal of showing off her new life to the people who once made her existence miserable.
Cait is no stranger to being noticed in public, especially as a bestselling author with an enthusiastic fan base, but back at Hotel Lilith, she was once recognized for a completely different reason. With all eyes on her as she returns to the town she’s spent years running from, Cait finds it increasingly difficult to discern between her fans and foes.
Haunted by the memory of a night that torments her, she resolves to put the past behind her and move on.
No one knows the truth about what happened back then.
At least, that’s what she’s always believed.
Shortly after her arrival, strange things begin to occur. A mysterious package, strange calls, and frightening text messages seem to be just the beginning of the nightmare about to unfold.
Someone is determined to bring the truth to light. If they succeed, the life Cait has built based on secrets could come crashing down around her. And, if they want her to pay for what she’s done, her lies may be the least of her concerns.
Someone’s out for blood.
