The Reunion

From the Inside Flap

"You have a boyfriend or husband at home?"
"No." That was the last thing she wanted to talk about: Tyler, Gabriel's father, who she hadn't  seen since she was six months pregnant and had been forced to drop out of school. He'd  treated her as if she had something he might catch, running the other way every time he saw  her. Yeah, she got that message loud and clear, but it didn't stop the ache that burned a giant hole where her heart had once beat.

There was not much of a synopsis offer for this book as you can see, so I knew that I was going into this story a little blind. I also have not read the other books of the Friessen Legacy, but I was happy to find that this did not effect the plot line for this particular story. There are moments that I noticed the characters are easily assumed to be in earlier novels, but it was more imperative that I read them to enjoy this books journey.

Andy and Laura are a lot more alike than how it appears. Laura a single mother at twenty is working in the home of the Friessen's. As a maid she is nothing more than a warm body cleaning their rooms and doing chores, but every so often she seem to catch the eye of Andy Friessen. Determined to be nothing like his father he in turn avoids her like the plague, but life through a twist that lands them together. Andy's character is very frosty and difficult to figure out. I was uncertain if his actions were out of a conscious obligation or something deeper, but as the story turns it becomes evident that he has far more interest then settling a disturbed conscious. Laura is a strong and independent character, but this heart wrenching story portrays her at her lowest. After losing a job, her home, and finally her child it is easy to see the dark sinister emotions that take over her character. Refreshingly, it is Andy that become her strong hold. Readers will cheer for this couple when they can finally form a plan to undo everything vicious attempt that Andy's family can concoct. This was a tragic story that as is finally winds down to conclude will uplift your spirits, and leave you warm and fuzzy.

This book is said to be a part of a "dramatic western romance series" and after reading the whole book still don't see the western part of it. If a sub-character who owns horses qualifies it as a western, that would be it.

Too many grammatical errors for such a short story. One that stood out as especially annoying was the need to capitalize China when referring to a tea cup. That may sound trite, but if you're going to go to the trouble of writing, take the time to find an editor or proofreader.

Lack of character development is generally an issue in such a short story. However, I've seen many authors who can pull it off so you feel you know the characters, their backgrounds, etc.. This one didn't do it.

It should be noted somewhere that the books in the series should be read in order. Too many unanswered questions that may (or may not) be found in previous books.

I should have been forewarned when there was only a one line description.

Please be aware that you will love this book if you like your characters to be very black-and-white figures. While there is some charm to the story, the whole thing is just a little too simplistic. The bad characters are VERY bad (with no apparent redeeming values) and the good characters are VERY good (with few or no apparent flaws). If you are OK with that and a very simple plot, then you will enjoy this book. If you are looking for three-dimensional characters with some real texture to the story, pass on this book.

I will not be reading any more of this series.

The plot was good but fell short in the end. Would have preferred a longer book with a chance for the characters relationship to develop. One minute Andy was deeply in love with his cousin's wife, the next he was marrying Laura so she could get her child back and on their wedding night they had sex in spite of the fact she had been Leary of him and didn't care for him through the entire book. On top of that he was a wuss when it came to his parents. He was a grown man living at home, constantly manipulated by his mother. I would have told the birch to go to he'll regardless of her response.

Disappointed!
Won't be reading anything else by this author. I consider cliffhangers the perfect way turn readers off. I for one will not even bother to check out any books by any author who thinks so little of their work as to even self publish a cliffhanger. I consider them an insult.

I have read this entire series and loved every one. This book started with a sadness that brought me to tears. As the story evolved, I was pleased to realize some of my favorite characters were doing so well. All the characters are real and most believable ....many endearing. I thank this fine author for her well developed plot ... For the kindness, beautiful romance, the wholesome characters that endeared me to them...as I'm sure they will to all you who are going to feel this pleasure when you read these fine stories. I was wishing there were more stories about these exciting interesting people. I will definitely read more Lorhainne Eckhart novels. Carole Beighey

This story really touched my heart. Single mother Laura is living day by day, pay check to pay just to take care of her little boy Gabriel. She got pregnant at 15, and her parents threw her out. The boyfriend never spoke to her again, offering no support at all. She got a job working as a maid at the Friessen mansion. Caroline was a real piece of work. You have no idea how much I wanted to go off on her throughout the story. She is the owner of the mansion, and treats her employee's, and everyone around her like they are replaceable. Laura is working on setting up a Christmas tree in Andy's office. Andy is Caroline's son. He walks in and demands that Laura takes the tree out of his office. She explains that his mother asked her to put trees up in every room. He still asked her to take it down. While she is working, she trips, and the tree falls over, shattering all the ornaments. Caroline walks in to see the mess, and she fires Laura and orders her off the property within the next five minutes, and tells her son, that the Tree will stay in his office. Laura didn't have a car, so she took off walking. My heart broke for her. She needed that job. Without the paycheck, she didn't have money to pay her rent. Her landlord was creep, and told her she either could pay the rent, or move out by morning. She pleaded with him, saying she had no place to go. She had never been late with the rent. He suggested that there was other ways she could pay off her rent money.... She packed what little she had, and she and her son took off in her car. Laura parked her car in the empty parking lot at the mall, and had been sleeping for a few hours with her son her lap. Someone tapped on her window waking her. It was the Police. Her son was taking from her and was placed in foster care.Read more ›
