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 gone wrong 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 Cancún, 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.

My Review

When I saw the family tree at the beginning of this book, I knew I was in for a wild ride filled with a ton of family drama. And boy, did this book deliver! Family Reunion is a gripping read that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster through the Mayweather’s lavish lives.

I liked the multiple points of view that gives more insight into each character. It’s as if you’re peering into their minds and unraveling the layers of their personalities and definitely their secrets. It really added depth and kept me engaged, making it hard to put the book down.

The abundance of secrets within this family is nothing short of astounding. With every page turned, you uncover new layers of hidden truths, lies, and betrayals that have shaped the characters’ lives. The author creates a great mystery and each revelation left me craving more, and I couldn’t help but speculate on what skeletons might still be lurking in their closets.

At the heart of it all, The Reunion presents an intriguing mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end. Every chapter leaves you with a desire to uncover the next piece of the puzzle, driving you forward with an insatiable curiosity.
