#BlogTour! #Review – The Reunion by Guillaume Mosso @OrionBooks @Tr4cyF3nt0n

Many thanks to Orion and Tracy Fenton for the blog tour invite and ARC, here is my review of ‘The Reunion’ by Guillaume Mosso:

Welcome to a school reunion you won’t forget

FRENCH RIVIERA, WINTER 1992
On a freezing night, as her high school campus is engulfed by a snowstorm, 19-year-old Vinca Rockwell runs away with Alexis, her philosophy teacher.

No one will ever see them again.

FRENCH RIVIERA, SPRING 2017
Formerly inseparable, Thomas, Maxime and Fanny – Vinca’s best friends – have not spoken in twenty-five years. But when they receive an invitation to their school reunion, they know they must go back one final time.

Because there is a body buried in that school…

…and they’re the ones who put it there.

What does TWG think?

I have never even to a school reunion before and, if I’m perfectly honest, I don’t think I want to either! I don’t think I’ve ever read a good thing about reunions in any books which feature it. I mean, someone either disappears, gets murdered, a fight breaks out, or someone reveals a dark secret which shocks everyone around them. Plus, I’m only 29….

‘The Reunion’ is a very intriguing novel. I will admit that I don’t think it was entirely my cup of tea, however I did appreciate the authors literary talent and outstanding compilation of intensity and suspense.

The novel is set within two different years; 1992 where the disaster happened, and 2017 which is the present and where the characters try and find out what had happened twenty five years prior.

I thought that the characters were very well crafted, especially as some of their personalities oozed colour, whilst others couldn’t have been more like chalk and cheese if they tried.

I cannot fault the way the storyline came together, nor can I fault the cold tingles that shimmied up and down my spine whilst reading it.
