My Review ...
This is epic conclusion of the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series.
What a ride it has been.
While all the brothers and their spouses make an appearance, this is, in principle, Beckett and Eve’s story.
He has earned quite a reputation even if everything he has ever done was to fight for his family. Now Beckett is really trying to abide by the law and be an outstanding citizen. Trying being the key word.
Eve is a survivor. She’s overcome many tragedies and grew up to be a strong, determined woman who won’t allow anything and anyone to put her down.
Her relationship with Beckett it’s explosive. In a good way. You’ll be in for some hot and steamy love scenes here but, if you have read the previous installments, you probably know already what to expect. Then again, maybe not.
There are so many twists and turns in the plot and the whole story is packed with dark humor, action, emotions, drama, angst and, with every turn of the page you’ll find it more and more interesting. It will draw you in from the very first page.
The bonds between the brothers are incredibly strong even if their journey in life has been filled with nothing but pain and loss at times but there’s still love, trust and devotion.
Now it’s the time for them to take one last stand and make Poughkeepsie safe again.
I don’t want to give you spoilers and ruin the book so you’ll just have to read and find out more.
About Debra I can tell you that she has an unique writing style and knows how to capture a reader’s attention and hold it until the end. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
“Come with me.” He led her to the beach again, but during dinner a few people had been busy. It was now lined with an aisle of candles, and a man stood close to the breaking surf, hands crossed, waiting. Someone had used the surrounding sand as a canvas, creating a swirling pattern. Their names were part of the art.
What? She asked without a sound.
“I want you to marry me. Here. Now.”
Beckett let go of her hand and strode away. When he turned around, close to the water at the end of the aisle, he hoped to hell she wasn’t running in the other direction.
IN THE SERIES
There are a lot of eyes in Debra Anastasia’s house in Maryland. First, her own creepy peepers are there, staring at her computer screen. She’s made two more sets of eyes with her body, and the kids they belong to are amazing. The poor husband is still looking at her after 17 years of marriage. At least he likes to laugh. Then the freaking dogs are looking at her—six eyeballs altogether, though the old dog is blind. And the cat watches her too, mostly while knocking stuff off the counter and doing that internal kitty laugh when Deb can’t catch the items fast enough.
In between taking care of everything those eyes involve, Debra creates pretend people in her head and paints them on the giant, beautiful canvas of your imagination. What an amazing job that is. The stories hit her hard while driving the minivan or shaving her legs, especially when there’s no paper and pen around. In all of the lies she writes hides her heart, so thank you for letting it play in your mind.
Debra is eternally grateful to Omnific Publishing, which has now published five of her books: two in the Seraphim Series and three in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series, as well as her novella, Late Night with Andres. That one is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now, please!)
