Review ~ Saving Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Anastasia’s humor and ability to write nitty gritty always keep me coming back. I’ve been invested in these characters for a long time and it was so nice to see an ending the series that made me feel really good.
As always, her characters are well done. They’re each very unique and, yet, they all belong together like a puzzle. The love of the brotherhood is amazing and I enjoy reading about their interactions.
Beckett and Eve continue their story in this final piece, but mostly the story is about taking care of your family (whoever that consists of) and saving your town in the process. There was a lot of growth for these two, but even Ryan (the police officer that has a crush on Eve).
There was so much action and feel good moments, but there was also tragedy that will break your heart. However, above it all, there was hope! Hope that things can be resolved, these guys can give back and do good, and they will all live their happily ever afters.
It’s such an amazing series. If you haven’t read it yet, go get Poughkeepsie first, and meet Black and Livia in the train station.
Beckett Taylor’s quest to be a better man has brought Eve Hartt back into his life, but sometimes it feels like they’re bound together with barbed wire. Though he longs to love her without causing pain, the wreckage of their past continues to crash down around them.
Yet with the help of this brothers—and for his brothers—Beckett won’t stop trying. He’s determined to make them all a family, to make a life they want to live, and to make Poughkeepsie a place that’s safe to live it.
He can feel their futures balanced precariously on his shoulders: Blake and Livia and their children, Cole and Kyle and the new baby they’ve just brought home, and Eve…always Eve. He wants their dreams to be real. But murderers don’t just get Happily Ever After handed to them. They have to wrench it away from Satan himself.
Good thing Beckett is prepared to do just that. After all, saving Poughkeepsie is the only way his story ends.
Prepare your heart and your head for a wild ride in this final installment of the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood series. Debra Anastasia does not disappoint as she weaves the last chapter of a story that blends true love, turbulent emotions, and life’s harsh realities into an uplifting tale that calls to the good in each of us.
