I thought I was completely hooked in Chasing Justice but I couldn’t put this book down. I highly recommend reading Chasing Justice first because you the have the same main characters but completely new mystery. Bobby, Piper, Michael, Jules and Betty are all back. In Cutting Ties we finally find out Bobby’ s Story as to why he likes to play by the rules. Piper whose story you find out in Chasing Justice to her everything has a grey area and she colors outside of the box. Given she was raised by abusive, drug addicts and her father is a serial killer that tried to kill her after he killed her mother, I completely understand that. I was truly pulling for Bobby and Piper to work out their differences and find a middle ground. They complimented each so well.
I loved Betty in both books, she was definitely the mother hen. Betty was really Jules’ mother and like a surrogate mother to Bobby but knew Piper needed someone, so almost adopted her to. When Michael started helping Bobby and Piper she opened her home and heart to him as well.
Piper’ s Dad comes back to finish what he started years ago. The action and suspense kept you on the edge of your seat, turning page after page! Cutting Ties was heartwarming at parts as well as touching, there were several places that broke my heart and had me in tears. I can’t wait for more by Danielle Stewart! I highly recommend this book!
