You can run but I will find you.
Working as a successful PI in Los Angeles, Heather Nelson hasn’t seen any of her high school classmates from Iowa in over a decade. When she makes a last minute decision to attend her class reunion, she and her once tight-knit group of friends are surprised at dinner by a delivery of an elaborate forget-me-not floral arrangement. But the accompanying card contains an ominous message: you deserve to die—a message they brush off as an elaborate prank at first.
When several of the group come close to death in the following weeks, they begin to suspect that the sender of the message has deadly intentions. One-by-one the friends contact Heather to divulge secrets from their past, convinced that the skeletons they are hiding put them at risk. Fearing for their lives, they beg Heather to return to Iowa and track down the person they believe is trying to kill them. But her friends only think they know her. Heather is hiding an explosive secret of her own.
Is she really an intended victim in a deadly game of revenge, or a twisted killer?
A Class Reunion for some can be a celebration, reuniting with old classmates and reliving fond memories, but for Private Investigator Heather Nelson and the group of friends she left behind in Iowa a decade earlier, it could be murder! Someone is out for revenge and they will do anything to get it!
I found the plot for this story to be interesting, it kept my attention and the use of a school reunion as the backdrop, was a good foundation to kick things off. The mystery is well played out, kept me on my toes and everything is all brought together well and gives the characters as well as the reader closure.
N.L. Hinkens has done a good job in the story’s execution and it’s structure, as she takes the reader from present to past. There we learn of the secret that Heather has been keeping and the circumstances that lead her to flee Iowa hoping never to return, as well as why she felt she had to come back.
I have to say I wasn’t particularly fond on any of the characters, expect for Heather and her sister Violet, but they all do play their parts well. They all have secrets buried deep within, threatened to be exposed and as you get deeper into the story, each gives the reader doubt of their motives.
The Class Reunion has been well written. The pace is fast, the twists and turns lead you down different routes, keeping you guessing and is overall an enjoyable reading experience. This is my first book from N.L. Hinkens and I will definitely read more from her.
It was a pleasure to read and review The Class Reunion, which I recommend.
