When I read book 1, Chasing Justice, it had me hooked from the start. I didn't think the 2nd book, Cutting Ties could be as good as the first. Boy was I wrong! Each book Just gets better and better. There are so many twists and turns in this series.
This 3rd book, Cutting Ties, is so good. It brings everything full circle for Piper. As Piper and Jules head to New York for answers, they find more questions that need to be answered. It brings the whole group together to help solve Pipers problems. Not only do they find answers, but they also find family and ....... Love. You will love every character in this book. The genuine love they all have for each other. It had the ending I was hoping for. I just hope to see and read more of my favorite characters in the books ahead. Piper, Bobby, Michael, Jules and yes, Betty. Love them all!
Starting on book four now.
The Piper Anderson Series by Danielle Stewart is so much more than just stories...they are life. All of the books deal with something that a lot of people feel is out of the average person's control. Justice is sometimes not just, your past can haunt you, and fate may seem to be "unavoidable". Piper, the main character, proves that all of these things can be conquered. Justice can be served, your past can be left in the past, and Fate can be changed.
I love the quote from Piper in Changing Fate, "Fate is not just some unavoidable circumstance that befalls a person. It can be shaped, it can be chosen, and it can be changed. And that's exactly what I plan to do."
Changing Fate is about Piper discovering who she can be when life isn't constantly knocking her down. She discovers a new "family" and that in itself has its own set of problems and drama. The book is also about her learning to be grateful for the good and bad that has occurred in her life because it leads her to a new "happy beginning" where she can finally not only survive life but learn to live it.
Changing Fate has drama, mystery, suspense, and romance. Many of the characters from the previous books join Piper and have their own issues to resolve during the story. We also get to meet some great new characters. This is one of my top series to recommend. I believe in the author and the books and know that I am recommending a quality reading experience for all readers when I tell them to buy these books.
I loved watching the evolution of all the characters throughout the series. Bobby and Piper each had to come from opposite ends of the spectrum and meet each other in the middle. We dived into Bobby's past and witnessed his total transformation. Bobby had to take a promise he had made to himself when he was a little boy, one that he had lived by his whole life, and finally let it go. Piper, on the other hand, is trying to find her footing now that she no longer has to run, to hide. The man she always thought was her father is dead and to start off her new life Piper decides to look for her real father. Her quest is filled with so much emotion, the lost hope of a child, the fear and skepticism of the adult, and the love of her friends. I wasn't expecting what happened in regards to Piper's father and I again applaud the author for exploring the grey areas that appear all to often in life. Bobby and Piper had to navigate the rough waters and it was only when they did together did they finally make it to the shore.
Jules and Michael also had to find their way out of a sticky situation and find away to come together despite their issues. Jules dropped a bomb on us within the first few pages, one that she had to cope with throughout the book and Michael had to let go of his commitment phobia. Both characters are so different from the first time we net them in book one and is was a privilege getting to know them.
Betty, as always, was the rock of our group keeping a level head and giving sound advice when needed. She was a breath of fresh air and one of my favorite characters.
Overall this was a great ending book to a wonderful series, my one complaint being the style of some of the dialogue. In the beginning of all the books the dialogue was stiff and very formal almost robotic. As the book progressed the dialogue loosened up and sounded more realistic, but it took long enough for me to deduct a star.
I loved this series and am sad to say goodbye to these dearly loved characters. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a page turner with romance woven within the pages :D 4 out of 5 stars.
