Unlock the secrets in Reunion Gap

When the son of the man who lost everything falls in love with the daughter of the man who stole it all, there can only be heartache ahead.
Readers who loved Mary Campisi's bestselling Truth in Lies series, also known as the "A Family Affair" books, won't want to miss ,Strangers Like Us, Book One in Mary's new Reunion Gap series. It's a tale of deception, secrets, forgiveness and redemption set in a small town.
Rogan Donovan gave up the glamour of big city life and returned home to help his family rebuild their lives after a smooth-talking stranger swindled his parents out of their life savings. But some things—like reputation and trust—can't be rebuilt, and small towns never forget past offenses.
When Elizabeth Hayes arrives in Reunion Gap, bent on helping the people her father cheated, Rogan opens his heart to her, unaware she's the daughter of the man who destroyed his father's life. Despite her good intentions, Elizabeth's secret will be exposed creating heartache, resentment, and bitterness.
Will forgiveness and redemption follow?

About the Author

Mary Campisi writes emotion-packed books about second chances. Whether contemporary romances, women's fiction, or Regency historicals, her books all center on belief in the beauty of that second chance. Her small town romances center around family life, friendship, and forgiveness as they explore the issues of today’s contemporary women.?

Mary should have known she'd become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the ending to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes.?

When she's not working on her craft or following the lives of five adult children, Mary's digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or, on the perfect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own hero/husband on his Harley Ultra Limited.

Strangers Like Us is an entertaining contemporary romance by Mary Campisi. Ms. Campisi has given us a book that is well-written and loaded it with fantastic characters. Rogan's family was swindled along with most of the town. He returned to his hometown to help his family, leaving a job he enjoyed and an ex behind. Elizabeth learns that her father was the con man that hurt the town and is urged by her uncle to pay it back without anyone knowing. Rogan and Elizabeth's story is loaded with drama, humor, secrets and suspicion. I enjoyed this story and look forward to my next book by Mary Campisi. Strangers Like Us is book 1 of the Reunion Gap Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Donovan's and Alexander's two powerful families who have held a feud for years. Elizabeth Hayes has come to right the wrong her family has down to the Donovan family. Her life is turned upside down when she falls in love. Mary has written a wonderful emotional story. Couldn't put the book down. Looking for the next book in series. joy943

Strangers Like Us is the 1st book in Mary Campisi’s new Reunion Gap series. This book takes place in Reunion Gap, a small town in the state of Pennsylvania, not unlike where Mary and her siblings grew up. If you like Mary Campisi’s Truth in Lies series, then you will love Reunion Gap! Some of the characters in Strangers Like Us intertwine with characters in Mary’s Truth in Lies series which makes for an even richer reading experience. The characters in Strangers Like Us feel like friends, someone you would sit down with and have a long conversation. Mary has a wonderful way of developing the characters as if they are sitting right next to you, telling you their story. Strangers Like Us is a love story at its core, continuing in the theme of love and forgiveness of Mary’s Truth in Lies series. Reunion Gap – Strangers Like Us features Elizabeth Hayes and Rogan Donovan, characters that are filled with a rich backstory that comes to light in the present. This town does not trust easily and due to past hurts are weary of strangers in their midst. Elizabeth is new in town with a secret agenda and Rogan catches her eye even though this was not part of her plan. Add in a generations old feud between the two most prominent families in Reunion Gap, the Alexanders and the Donovans and watch the sparks fly. The question is, will Elizabeth’s true intentions come to light? And if they do, who will be hurt in the process? You must read to find out!!! If you enjoy Strangers Like Us, book two Liars Like Us and book three Lovers Like Us in the Reunion Gap series are in process to continue the story of those you met in Strangers Like Us. Check out Mary’s Truth in Lies and That Second Chance series as well for more great reading and wonderful characters. Strangers Like Us ends with a real cliff hanger and I cannot wait to see what is revealed in the second book. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

As she always does, Mary Campisi really delivered in Strangers Like Us, Book one in her new series centered in Reunion Gap. At least, she had me hooked in the first few pages. Similar to her A Family Affair series, Mary creates a fictional town where heartache, betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption rein. But, Reunion Gap is not like the town of Magdalena. Reunion Gap is closed off and shuns newcomers. Once, not so long ago, the townspeople were victims of a con man. Many lost their life savings. One man lost everything including his life. Strangers is the story of the children of the con man and the man who lost everything. Both of these characters are trying to rectify the grave injustice that their fathers did to the town. It is an engrossing story that fans of Mary Campisi will enjoy immensely. To newer readers, it is an introduction to the works of the author. Neither set of readers will be disappointed. This is an honest review of the book of which I received an Advanced Reader Copy.

Welcome to Reunion Gap or are you really welcome? Reunion Gap is like any typical small town. There are secrets, lies and mistruths but also love and the capacity to love. It turns out that due to an unfortunate occurrence, the people in this small town do not like strangers AT ALL. I guess you need to be really special to be welcomed here and I can't wait to learn more about the people and also, what it takes for someone to be accepted.
