When I first downloaded this book, I didn't know what to expect but it was a surprising read. I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn't put my Kindle down. The characters are relatable and I highly recommend this book. It would make a nice Christmas present.

Ah, the adventure known as marriage... This book tells it like it is! Like my favorite dessert, I just couldn't put it down until I devoured the last morsel.

I laughed and cried with Allie & Michael throughout their journey. Their interaction with each other and their daughter rang true to life. I felt like I knew these people (and sometimes like I WAS these people) and was absolutely invested in their happiness. I cringed at their mistakes and cheered at their triumphs. I could apply the lessons learned to my marriage. AN ALL-AROUND GREAT READ!

This is a wonderful novel. When I started reading this book, I was hooked! I couldn't put it down.

The characters are real and believable. Once I began to care about the characters (which you will shortly after starting the book), I was staying up late to find out what happened. How many of us would like to return to our high school days, start our adult lives over, and not get bogged down and detour from who we were back then?

The detailed descriptions of locales the characters visited allowed the reader to get inside the story and go along with Michael and Allison. I found myself walking along on their journeys of introspection. "The Reunion" is one that anyone can relate to. We've all gotten complacent in our relationships at some point in time, and the story illustrates how easy it is to let mundane daily tasks can get in the way of keeping the spark in a relationship.

The book answers the questions: Can a momentary indiscretion really ruin a marriage? Does it really take work every day to keep a marriage fresh and alive, or can the strings unravel with an unplanned rendezvous and a feeling of "I deserve this?" Will Michael and Allison reconcile and live happily ever after?

If you're looking for a book that will leave you caring about realistic characters who are struggling, like all of us, to shield their relationships from dangerous distractions, this is it!

The Reunion is a complicated love story between Michael and Allison who after years of marriage still love and adore each other. But unresolved issues from their past threaten to destroy their life together.
This Reunion poses the question, is true love enough to conquer personal insecurities, desires, and good and bad choices made?
Once a vivacious, outgoing, popular, and talented artist and runner, Michael chose to follow in his father's footsteps becoming a successful, yet rather staid and dull Estate Lawyer. Now he works for clients he doesn't necessarily like, jogs around the neighborhood, and can't remember the last time he's picked up his sketchpad.
Married for twenty-seven years to Allison, he has become everything she wants him to be. A partner in well established aw firm. Respected in the community, a good husband and provider to their strong-willed daughter Alicia. Much to Allison's relief Michael's art ambition dwindled to nothing.
Alicia thinks her Mom, is so tightly bound by her own rules and insistence at keeping them, she has bestowed her the nickname, St Allison. Control is an issue for Allison, and her teaching vocation demonstrates her need to keep everything under her reign.
Allison's life operates according to the rules she has written for her and her family. Add to this, her need to conform to what she thinks society expects from her, and her strong Catholic faith. Pursuing passions, or living life to its full potential, are to Allison, just frivolous notions.
A letter arrives inviting them to attend Michael's high school reunion. Allison is all in favor of going. Michael is reluctant to reconnect with people he hasn't seen for twenty or so years. Allison's powers of persuasion work, and they go.

When I first started reading this book I thought, this isn't a normal "romance" book, yet I bought it under a romance genre on amazon. I was soon entranced with what was going on in the lives of Michael, Allisona and Alicia. I was captivated by the authors writing style and as the book progressed I found myself a cheering for Michael and Allison to get back together.

Adultry is wrong no matter which way you look at it, and it hurts a lot of people. With that being said the author gave a great detail on what was going on with each others lives as well as their daughter who was caught in the middle. The story could have gone either way and it is a very interesting read.

I usually don't do reviews but this story touched something deep inside me and had me in tears by the end of the book.

Thank you David for sharing this story with us, you've gained another fan and I will look for more books that you've written.

Storyline and outcome predictable There are a ton of typos that need to be fixed and it transitions poorly from one character to the next in the narration.
