Chasing Destiny by Eric Jerome Dickey
This is the book I've chosen for the first selection. I like EJD, his books usually make for good entertainment if nothing else. I am in a book club that meets once a month and this is our October Selection...why not kill two birds with one stone. I hope you enjoy it.
Black Expressions Review:
Billie’s a sexy, 30-something biker without a care in the world. She’s a loner, moving from job to job without any commitments, but when she discovers she’s pregnant, it’s one commitment she’s willing to make. But the night she tells her baby’s father, her still-married lover, Keith, of his impending fatherhood, he tells her that he’s planning to go back to his wife, Carmen, and teenage daughter, Destiny. Billie’s distraught over losing the man she loves and the idea of raising a baby alone, but now she’s also got to deal with somebody trying to kill her! Could it be crazed Carmen, whose obsession with her husband’s infidelity makes her willing to pay any price to get Billie out of the picture? Or Destiny—the emotionally scarred victim of a vicious street setup—who ultimately blames Billie for her parents lack of love and attention? What Billie doesn’t know is that the other players in this deadly game may not be the usual suspects. Now she’s got to use all her streets smarts to find out who’s trying to run her off the road of life—for good.
