Katie Rose Guest Pryal – Chasing Chaos

katie rose guest pryal chasing chaosI read part 3 in the Entanglement Series, Chasing Chaos, by Katie Rose Guest Pryal, without having read the first 2 titles. It didn’t impact the ease to get into the story of Daphne Saito and her friends and families. Daphne is a stunning screenwriter who just ended a relationship with her longtime boyfriend, Dan. In the course of only five days, a one-night stand, a role as the wedding planner for Greta, and guardian angel to rescue her friend Carrie leave Daphne without a dull moment. The rest searched for is not on the horizon.

Meet Miranda George who, just like Greta’s father turns into the wedding party late. Learn to know the fate of a drugs addict and Dan. It seems that everywhere Daphne comes, chaos will result. Is it intentional or coincidental? In all honesty, adds dating promiscuous women to a little more chaos? The novel has an abundance of short sentences and conversational phrases. As a reader, it is easy to read, but without room to fantasize or let your thoughts wander. Chasing Chaos can be consumed on its own, although a sequel into these unbalanced lives is left open.
