Breaking Ties – Tracie Puckett
Title: Breaking Ties (Breaking #3)
Author: Tracie Puckett
My rating: ★★★★✫
Breaking Rules, the first book in the series, was a freebie on Amazon this summer. I decided to try it, because I liked the synopsis. At the time I had no idea it was part of a series, but as I finished the book in one day I found out that I had to buy the next part to know what would happen next. That’s what I did. I got Breaking Walls and then when it was available I got Breaking Ties as well.
What the book is about
Breaking up is hard to do, and it seems that the Parkers are learning that lesson the hard way. Mandy has broken her official tie to the Raddick Initiative, Bailey’s declared war on her friends and family, and even their father is amidst an emotional crisis. And when a ghost from their past suddenly comes calling, both of the sisters must face the emotions, questions, and truths they’ve kept buried for so long.
Mandy knows that forgiveness and redemption are the keys to moving forward and living a happy life, but she struggles with letting go of the pain she’s carried for four long years. Jones, Georgia, and Fletcher offer a distraction. Gabe is desperate to help. But Mandy insists on deflecting, knowing all along that she can’t avoid the real issue forever; she has to decide once and for all: can she finally find the courage to let go of her past, or is she doomed to live the rest of her life with an unforgiving heart?
What I think about the book
I can’t tell too much without giving away too many spoilers about the first two books, but it’s basically a lovely young adult story full of family, drama and love. Mandy used to be on her own in the past, but throughout the story she becomes more friendly to others and she learns a lot about friendship, love and doing something for others through working on the projects they come up with for the Raddick Initiative.
If you’re in the mood for a fast paced, well-written young adult story, I can definitely recommend the Breaking series to you!
