Synopsis from Back Cover:
Marina Martindale's The Reunion, is a great romantic read for the upcoming fall and winter season. If you are a romance lover, you must check out this novel. Set in present day Denver, Gillian (a thriving artist who owns her own art gallery in Phoenix) travels to Colorado to show her artwork at a local gallery. However, her world turns upside down when her ex-lover, Ian, makes an appearance at her opening night show hoping to reconnect. Twenty-five years have passed since he broke things off with her after graduating college, and Gillian was never truly able to get over him. While time has passed and life has changed both Ian and Gillian, their chemistry is still as strong as ever. Will Gillian let Ian back into her life? And if she does, will he walk out on her for a second time?
The plot twists in The Reunion truly surprised me. Martindale kept me on the edge of my seat because it felt that as one crisis passed something else happened. I believe the part of The Reunion that I enjoyed the most was Gillian's friendship (or romance?) with Ian's oldest son Jeremy. Twenty-one year old Jeremy reminds Gillian of how Ian was when he was that age. I really liked reading about how their relationship evolved. I also found it interesting how Ian reacted to the closeness between Jeremy and Gillian. Ian brought everything upon himself, and yet he still found himself jealous of his son's relationship with his ex.
I recommend Marina Martindale's The Reunion to all romance genre lover's. Gillian and Ian's love story will grab you from the start. As the weather gets colder, treat yourself to a relaxing evening by curling up in front of your fireplace or soaking in a warm bubble bath while reading The Reunion. You won't be sorry!
