This installment is all about family relationships that go back Y E A R S for many of the characters. Unraveling those tangled memories becomes the clues by which the mystery of “Her Deadly Reunion” is solved. Jill’s father is very ill. Is someone purposefully trying to kill him? Is it Jill 🧐
Ziarnik could have devolved this story into a soap operaish mess but she took the high road. The characters are all believable, the dialogue is smart and the emotions are raw. The book falls into the inspirational category and there are prayers and concerns about eternal salvation that are “convenient”, at times; my only negative with this book.
“Her Deady Reunion” is a well edited fun read and an excellent way to spend a few hours 📚
She finally gets the chance to meet the father she's never met and thought was dead. The invitation though to spend the Christmas holiday at his home is not the Norman Rockwell dream any of us would hope for. Her fiance is unable to join her at first. She's turned away at the door and there's a snowstorm!
Once snuck inside by the devoted nurse, Alice, who extended the invitation, Jill is not met with gracious hospitality by the members of the household, but great disdain. Her father is gravely ill and thrilled to meet his daughter. His other daughters and mother-in-law are not quite as welcoming. One is willing to embrace her into the family even though their father had an affair (which produced Jill) after their own mother became psychotic after the second child was born.
Soon Jill begins to believe that someone is trying to kill John, her father, and Alice, the private nurse nurtures that fear. When her fiance Clay finally arrives, events are escalating and soon accusations are flying about just who is trying to kill the family patriarch? And why? This escalates the hostility and John Turner begs his youngest daughter, only recently reunited, to leave for fear that she is in danger, but just what kind of danger. Father is seeking to protect the daughter but the strong-willed daughter is bound and determined to save her father.
Clay is trying to keep them all alive and out of jail in the process. The author keeps you guessing just "who done it" and how, until the very end and once the mystery is resolved, faith blooms and reconciliation can occur... and just maybe a fresh new start for Jill and Clay. This is a well-written sequel that is hard to put down. I highly recommend it.
I wondered at the title. Since Jill and her father have never seen each other, how could it be a reunion? Like the first book in the series, this one lacks that element of being pulled in to care deeply what happens to the main characters. I found Clay much more likable than Jill because she tends to make some illogical decisions. For example, spending so much time with her ex-fiancé while Clay was away just didn’t go with the woman of faith she seemed to be. Again, I knew who was trying to kill John Taylor. I didn’t like how the situation was solved in the book. People who hadn’t believed Jill before suddenly did and helped. Quite a few things in the book just didn’t seem logical to me. However, it wasn’t so bad I didn’t find it interesting.
A challenging mystery and who to suspect? Fortunately Clay makes it back late Christmas day. Can they figure it out? Or will Jill be suspected? Very well written.

I don't willingly forgo sleep for just any nvoel, but "choice" was almost negligible b/c I couldn't stop reading 😄
Stellar writing, well-developed characters, great storyline, and satisfying conclusion all work together to make this clean read a great contender in the rom/suspense category!
Loved it, looking forward to more of this author's work, and highly recommend!
