From the USA Today bestselling author of The Wedding Game comes a new romantic comedy about the antics that ensue when three siblings come together for their parents’ fiftieth-anniversary party.
Martin and Peggy Chance believe love should last a lifetime. With their fiftieth wedding anniversary on the horizon, they’ve modeled a beautiful relationship for their three grown children. But to their dismay, that lesson hasn’t quite caught on—the three siblings just can’t seem to take a chance and find love in their own lives.
There’s Ford, the eldest, devoted to his work and resistant to romance…or so he claims. Cooper, the middle child, can’t get past his divorce—until he reconnects with a feisty baker from his past. And Palmer, the baby of the family, is the free-spirited world traveler who always pictured herself with someone other than a handsome small-town family doctor.
When the Chance siblings come together to plan the ultimate anniversary party for their parents, they’ll have to navigate romantic entanglements, sibling rivalries, and the definitive end of their childhood. Whatever happens, The Reunion promises to be a fun, flirty, wild ride.

There are possible **SPOILERS** beyond this point!
The Reunion features 6 POVs with half being the three Chance siblings, our main characters. Ford and Larkin, Cooper and Nora, Beau and Palmer. Ford, Cooper and Palmer are siblings. Beau and Larkin are siblings. Nora is Beau’s ex-wife’s longtime bestfriend. She was the MOH at their wedding. I really disliked how connected these people were with each other. It was taboo and weird… not in a good way.
I really disliked Palmer Chance. She was insufferable, selfish and spoiled. I didn’t like Cooper either. Beau and Larkin were the only characters I liked. But they have terrible taste in partners. I didn’t hate Ford but grew to dislike him more and more as the story went on.
There were many cringey interactions with nudity and this family. I found there were too many conversations that just made me so uncomfortable with how weird they were… It was gross. This family’s “sense of humor” was just bizarre. Every time I laughed at something, there was something really strange that followed to take away from the funny moment.
I was very close to DNFing but I didn’t. That was a mistake. I was hoping for an amazing HEA after all I suffered through but it was extremely underwhelming. This book was not at all what I was expecting. I wouldn’t recommend this one. I truly hope this is not what I can expect from this author in the future!
There were a couple open door scenes but not very often. Lots of sexual imagery throughout the book.
