Overview

In A Reunion to Die For, author Lauren Carr continues to follow Joshua Thornton while he brings justice to the small West Virginia town of his youth that he returned to with his five children after the death of his wife. Chester is a quaint, but far from quiet, town. Here, everyone knows everyone and nearly everyone has a secret. Some are dying, while others are killing to keep their secrets undercover.

As a naïve teenager, Joshua Thornton had no reason to question the authorities who had concluded that his dear friend Tricia Wheeler, after breaking up with her boyfriend, had committed suicide. However, 21 years later, as Hancock County's Prosecuting Attorney, Joshua is forced to examine the closed case when former schoolmate and current adversary, Gail Reynolds, returns to town to pen an investigative book on Tricia's "murder". Joshua reluctantly agrees that the pieces of Tricia's suicide don't add up, and an investigation is warranted.

When Grace Henderson, another seemingly innocent teenage girl, is murdered by a close gun shot to the chest, it is impossible for Joshua to ignore the similarities the girls and their deaths share. Surely the murders of two teenage cheerleaders 21 years apart couldn't be any more than coincidental... could they? As the investigations into the two deaths unfold, Joshua finds more questions than answers, more enemies than friends, and more victims than clues. Thornton must use every ounce of his integrity, ingenuity, and tight circle of close friends while he scrambles to solve the two murders that has nearly everyone around him becoming either suspect or victim... including himself!

Editorial Reviews

Robin Lee
“A Reunion to Die For is a tightly written mystery with enormous suspense and appeal. Joshua is a wonderful series character, and I enjoyed reading about him and his murder cases… Author Lauren Carr writes with a flair that will not only keep you reading but also make you glad you didn't graduate with this class.
