Meet the Author

I've dreamed of being a writer since I reported on freelance writing for a career project in the ninth grade. After majoring in English at Western Kentucky University, I taught high school English for five years. Since 1982 I've made my living as a writer — a technical writer — but I didn't have the nerve to make my dream come true until after a life-threatening illness in 1988.
I've enjoyed my process of becoming a published author. A member of the Romance Writers of America, I've been active in my local Kentucky RWA chapter and am a member of Novelist, Inc. My best friends are fellow writers. Who else will check a point plot for me or understand GMC and POV?

I live in Louisville, Kentucky, along with two dogs and four cats. I enjoy taking riding lessons on the American Saddlebred Horse. I'm a member of the American Saddlebred Horse Association .

I volunteer at The Luci Center, a non-profit 501c3 organization located in Shelbyville Kentucky providing therapeutic riding and hippotherapy for individuals with disabilities.

Believe me. Dreams do come true! On January 2, 2000, I married Bill, my soul mate.
Thanks to everyone who has read and enjoyed my books and a special thanks to my many writing buddies who have made the last years the best years of my life!

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I have to admit that this book captured my attention from the first time I read the blurb. I am a fan of contemporary romances and ones that involve meeting up with an old flame and hoping for a second chance are personal favorites. The twin-angle wasn’t appealing because I feel that that particular storyline has been done to death but I’m glad that I didn’t let that stop me from reading Jan Scarbrough’s The Reunion Game.

    Jane Smith is at her high school reunion and finally has the chance to see Graham Winchester again. Sparks fly from the get-go and it was their chemistry was undeniable. However, Jane’s identical twin sister, Dawn, is now a famous Hollywood actress to whom she feels inferior to and believes that the only way that she can seduce Graham and find out if their one-night-stand from graduation night was a fluke, is to switch identities with her.

    One of the great things about the twin’s switching places story was that Ms. Scarbrough did not overly focus on Dawn; you got a very general idea of who she is, how she acts, but she was not a front and center player in this book. Normally when you have twins and one is more successful or thought to be more attractive, they tend to be mean and take over the story. That is not the case here.

    After sharing a steamy kiss at the reunion, the sister’s switch places, but Graham isn’t easily fooled; he knows them both too well and so he goes along with this crazy scheme (unbeknownst to anyone) in hopes of figuring out why Jane would go to such great lengths to be with him.

    This novella was a quick read with interesting characters and a story that was believable and not too far fetched. You actually cared about Jane and Graham and felt both of their vulnerabilities. I can’t believe it took me so long to actually get to reading it! After I was done I found out that “The Reunion Game” is actually part of a series, but that really didn’t change how I felt about the story. This book can clearly stand alone and it’s nice when an author can do that for you – create a series but make it possible to pick up any book in it at any time and still enjoy it without being lost.

    If you are looking for a fun and sassy read, check out Jan Scarbrough’s The Reunion Game on your eReader.

    Cozy Read

    When you come across a book that is part of a series and you've missed the previous ones are you tempted to skip it? If so, make an exception in the case of The Reunion Game as it is not a book to miss out on.

    This may be the fourth in the series, but stands alone for those who come to the series backwards. As always the author creates powerful characters with real problems and dilemmas. It is how the author weaves those intricacies and solutions through the book that snares her readers back time and time again.

    Think the 'twin-thing' is done to death? Then think again. The author gets into the heads of her twins creating believable reasons and reality behind the heroine, Jane Smith's, actions.

    Graham Winchester epitomises everything that success means to those who think they don't have it, and yet the hero is deeply flawed with lessons and misconceptions to deal with.

    The author skilfully weaves Dawn Smith, Jane's twin, and a pivotal secondary character, in and out of the present, and backstory.

    Ms. Scarbrough invites her readers into her settings and plots and captures their interest with her fluent and gentle style. The development of her secondary characters is masterly, and their strength will charm and frustrate in equal measures. Her distinctive writing style ensures that while the reader may cringe at the antics Jane gets up to, they will root for her from the first to the final page.

    Graham's reactions to Jane's behavior shows his true caring and strong character, and his progress towards laying the ghosts of his past.

    This is definitely a book to curl up with when you are in need of some 'feel-good-factor'.

    Review Of The Reunion Game By Jan Scarbrough

    Jan Scarbrough writes one hell of a book. When I read this book I had no idea it was part of a series. With that being said, I can honestly say that didn't seem to matter because I was never lost wondering who so and so was talking about. In short I am telling you, you could read this book as a stand alone and not miss a think in the story. Jane and Graham are such great characters each with their own set of faults/flaws that make this a very enjoyable read. This story also had an unexpected kink in the scenario that I was pleasantly surprised by. Jane having a twin sister to switch places really ups the dynamic in this story. Who wouldn't want to have a twin sister to switch places with from time to time. Patty Duke did it in the Patty Duke Show, Hayley Mills did it in the Parent Trap, and Lindsay Lohan did it in the Parent Trap remake. Granted all of them were one person playing a dual role but you could never tell. That is what makes having a twin so appealing. BUT there is always a downside to everything in life and in reading this story you will find out Jane's and her reasons behind playing her little "game". I am so afraid to say something that will spoil this book for somebody who hasn't read it. This book has it all drama, angst, high school crush, best friends, a high school reunion, old friends, old lives/past behaviors, and an awaking to new possibilities. On a scale from 1-10 I give this book a 10 and encourage everyone 18+ who has had a crush on someone, never felt good enough, felt like they didn't know what their future held, or who just LOVES a really good story to pick up this book and get to know Graham and Jane. Now I am off to find the first three books in this series....^_^.
