Review: Reluctant Reunion by Ruth J. Hartman

Print Length:  pages
Publisher: esKape Press (August 7, 2017)

From Kennedy Cooper tries everything to stay away from her father’s alpaca farm. Being an actress in New York seems to do the trick. Until it doesn’t. When she fails to get enough acting parts, loses her part-time job, and breaks up with her boyfriend, she has no choice but to return. Seeing her father again is tough, but having to meet his new love interest reminds Kennedy why she’d vowed never to go home.


My Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Let me start off by saying that although this is book #2 in the Escape Reunion series, you do not have to have read the first book in order to understand and enjoy this one. There are no real spoilers to be missed. 

This was a wonderful second installment to this series! Kennedy is such an interesting character, who I strongly believe had one of the best written story arcs I've read recently. Even though she is an adult, she grows so much as a character - from someone who is self-absorbed and shallow, to someone who stands up and does what is right. 

The author did a lovely job of not only bringing this character to life, but also to face her obstacles head on. From seeing her father for the first time in years, to having a sit down conversation with her new step-mother, Ms. Hartman took these tough and awkward situations and used them to weave together a beautiful and endearing story. 

Overall, I believe this novel will appeal to those who enjoy a story that is well written as well as engaging. I would read more from this author!
