The screech of tires from a car driven by a drunken driver, the flash of crunching metal, the death of his parents, and the coma that Gabriel Donner lives in until he comes back to the land of the living set up this unusual tale of romantic suspense. For days, somebody has been calling to Gabriel in his mind. He keeps hearing this voice within saying “help me.” He can’t figure out where the voice is coming from and it’s driving him crazy.
Into Gabriel’s life steps psychic Laura Dane who’s been hired by Gabriel’s Uncle Mike. Gabriel isn’t certain whether he’s suddenly become psychic because of the accident or if the terrible nightmares he’s been having lately are not nightmares at all. You see, Gabriel has been sleepwalking and dreaming of murder, and so far each dream of murder has come true. The press has named the killer “Prince Charming” because he’s left a little calling card with each victim at the scene, a rose that has been left as a peace offering for murder.
There’s one fact that the police are not giving to the public, one fact that only the killer and Gabriel Donner know. Is Gabriel the one murdering all these innocents or is he a victim himself? Gabriel can’t go to the police, he knows too much – more than any innocent man should know. But Gabriel has Laura, who sees what he sees, who understands him and who eventually falls in love with him. Only Laura can help him sort through this mess and Laura can help him discover exactly what is happening to him.
I found Reunion to be a fascinating tale and one that I haven’t been able to get out of my mind – it’s a book I couldn’t put down until I finished it. While the characters could have been better developed than they were and there were a couple of areas where Sala might have explained things just a bit more instead of having the characters run around in circles, but I still found the book compelling.
What truly touched me about this tale was the ending. I don’t want to say much because I don’t want to spoil the story for anybody; but for me, the end was at least a two hanky read and that’s all I’m going to say about it. Be prepared for a good, long cry if you’re at all like me; the ending touched me in a way that I’ve not been touched in a long time.
If you are the type of person that wants intrigue that keeps you wondering right until the end, this is not the book for you. However, if you want a tale that will make you guess a little, keep you on your toes a little, and is just a satisfactory read that you feel in the end was worth spending your time on, then I suggest you give Reunion a try. I enjoyed it so much that I’m going back now to read another Sharon Sala title, Sweet Baby.
