Harmony Blue Kucharski was a young woman when she made a mistake. She got pregnant by a boy she did not love and then gave the baby up for adoption. Now she is Blue Reynolds, talk show host and businesswoman extraordinaire. The dreams of the girl she used to be never vanished and curiosity has her looking for the son she gave away.
Mitch Forrester is the man who let Blue get away. With a bipolar ex-wife and a young son, Julian, he cut Blue loose instead of losing visitation with his son. Two failed marriages later, Mitch is seeing someone else. When Blue comes back into his life, his feelings from the past come flooding back.
Blue was crushed when Mitch broke things off with her all those years ago. The thing that hurts the most is the fact she has no idea where her son is or what he looks like now. Shooting a week of her talk show in Key West, Florida, has Blue running into people she thought were out of her life for good. When Mitch strolls back into her life, feelings from long ago push their way to the surface. Will a young girl’s fantasy of what could have been make the woman of today realize they were just that... fantasy?
Reunion is a marvelous look into the life of the celebrities people look up to. Their lives are no more glamorous than ours. The everyday baggage still follows them everywhere. Blue is a strong woman who has overcome so much to be the person she is now. I think she was lucky Mitch let her get away all of those years ago. He did not deserve her. This is also a tale of finding love where you least expect it. Ms. Fowler writes such a beautiful story and it is one I hope you pick up. I do not believe you will be disappointed.
