Okay, so Chasing Destiny has been sitting on the shelf in my library for a couple of years before I decided to blow the dust off of it. And I'm glad that I did, but when I got to the end of the paperback copy I was looking for the last chapter or the Epilog or something? Maybe a sequel? But, no, Mr. Dickey left a sistah hangin'! All I got were "Acknowledgements" WTH? Oh, no, he didn't! Oh, yes, he did too! He took 454 pages to tell me a great story and then couldn't spare a few more pages to tell what happened after Billie gave the DVD to Viviane? And Raheem found out that his "oh so sweet" relative was a skank and who jacked her up? And Carmen and Keith found out who their daughter really was? And WTH were Carmen and Keith still doing living together anyway? And whether Billie actually did win her court case? There was at least another chapter to be written when Chasing Destiny ended so abruptly. And where was the love? Nobody loved anybody in this story. Maybe the title of the novel should have been Chasing Love or maybe that's the sequel.

I really liked the book to be honest. I just could not get past all of the incidences of severe mental illness that EJD illustrated. Where do I start??

Billie-In love with a married man, and expected him to be happy that she got pregnant

Keith-Married into a psycho family...lesson here is to get to know your in-laws really well before getting married...and he expected the craziness not to trickle down to his daughter? I would say that the crazy rubbed of on him, but you have to be crazy on your own to even attract that kind of drama

Carmen-Her momma is crazy...her daddy is crazy...nuff said!

Carmen's Momma-Perhaps if she was not completely insane, she wold focus on her crazy husband and stay lout of her daughter's marriage. That would be too much like right.

Carmen's Daddy-Hello??? I am not trying to run anyone down, not even for my crazy daughter. How are you going to fix a situation that you refuse to take responsibility for? Had he not been crazy, perhaps Carmen would have been okay!

Raheem-Probably not crazy, but can you say opportunistic ho?

Mo-Poor little crazy lamb. Did he think that he could get away with exploitation without having his stuff shot off eventually?

Lupe-The crazier they are, the better it feels to slice em. The fact that she sees herself as a porno king pin just amazes me.

Q-Wrong place, wrong time, wrong people...which makes her crazy too.

Destiny-what did you expect?

Vivianne-The only sane person in the entire book.

Enjoy!!!

My wife and I refer to Genevieve as EJD's hiccup. Everyone has one or two in their career. But he came back strong with Chasing Destiny. You will love for a time and hate for a time just about every character in this book. I just saw the movie Hard Candy two days ago and said to myself, "no 14 year old girl is capable of that stuff." After reading what goes on with a 15 year old girl in this book I'm traumatized by fictional teenage girls. And if I ever meet some fine biker chick like Ducati my wife will have to understand that I will be obligated to try my luck with her. Great job EJD, you are back.

I have to say that Eric Jerome Dickey has done it again. Just when I thought that he couldn't top his last book, he does. Chasing Destiiny brings us back to Cali, with the tale of a group people who lives are connected, by the actions of some. As soon as you start reading, you get sucked in to the intrigue. Eric has this way of adding bits and pieces of former books to his new book. We one of the main characters mention the billboard that's asking for information on the murderer of Lisa Wolf, you instantly get a flashback to Drive me Crazy. I absolutely loved this book. I would encourage any reader who is a lover of EJD's book to pick this one up. You won't be sorry!

We are reading this book as our book club selection this month & it's a real page turner! Loved the story line & how all characters play into it. Now I need to know hat happens after the roommate sees the video.

I love me some Eric Jerome Dickey ...(said in my most sassy voice possible) My first novel I read from him was Milk in My Coffee and I have been addicted since then. What a great escape!
I started this book one day and couldn't put it down. Eric really knows how to keep one's attention. Recommend this book to anyone who loves to read.
