Between finishing book 1 and before starting book 2 my feelings were all over the place. I wanted to read book 2 but equally I didn’t want to read it because I loved James.
In the end I took a leap and started reading it. I was quite antsy about it to be honest.
This is a very emotional book and I strongly suggest that you don’t read it in public. I thought that I wouldn’t like Austin and Cadence as a couple but they were great toget ...more
Once again, I was completely engaged in the storyline, following Cadence through her emotional turmoil of loving two men in her life and having to choose only one. And once again, this book is full of happiness, sadness, inspiration, loss, heartbreak, romance and drama.
I felt there was a little predictability with the plot but there was also a huge twist at the end that I didn’t see coming.
I love the author’s writing, it’s easy ...more
‘Diverging Cadence’ is the last novel in the 'Cadence' duology and one I couldn't be happier to read. After the great FIVE STAR first novel 'Deceptive Cadence' I had high hopes and great expectations for this sequel. I am so EXTREMELY glad that the author chose to do a duology; I don’t know how I would have survived if she didn’t.
'Diverging Cadence' starts right where 'Deceptive Cadence
Cadence Anderson has been given a second chance to go back and relive her life as a teen, in order to change events that led to the death of her husband and child.
In Deceptive Cadence, we saw her go through high school and fall in love with James, a boy ...more
Before Reading: I was dying to get my hands on this book, so when I saw it was available on Netgalley I immediately requested. Then I spent days obsessively checking my library to see if my request was approved. The moment it showed up I dropped everything just to read it.
Diverging Cadence, book 2 in the Cadence series, takes us right back to where it all ended in Deceptive Cadence. Ther ...more

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, New Adult
I loved the first book, but was gutted that it was a two part instalment. I HATE waiting for sequels, find I lose the momentum. I had to reread the last few chapters of that one before starting this just to remember where we left Cadence and what was happening. Its not that long ago I read it but I read a lot...
So Cadence is off to W. Australia, other side of the country where she me ...more
This book was everything. I'm not even kidding. I feel the pace was a bit faster and I know that some people were upset because she was back and forth so many times but really, what would you do? She's completely in love with BOTH men. How is that a choice to be taken lightly? I abso ...more
It was quiet heartbreaking to read. Book one, Decpetive Cadence, in comparison was much easier to read then book two, Diverging Cadence. To be frank, I started to hate Cadence when it came to the way she acted towards James. I felt that she acted like there ...more
My husband is my soulmate now, but were we born soulmates? If life turned out just slightly differently for me, I imagine that I could have fallen in love with someone else. Or, perhaps not. Maybe we would have taken a different road to find each other, but have found ...more
In Diverging Cadence, it begins where the first book left off. Cadence is starting to re-live her adult life; she's falling in love, she's going off to school. With her new circumstances, she faces new challenges. Who is she going to choose? Will she choose the path that leads to her husband and daugh ...more
"Diverging Cadence" is the second and final book on this magical series by Katie Hamstead! In book 1 Cadence's choices led her family and friends in different, better choices. Now, she must choose between Austin and James, the love she knows and the love she found in her second chance.
The story spans months in the college life of Cadence. She gets to change some of her choices there too and as a result she gets to know Austin earlier. There are man ...more
There was no mental hump for me to get over for enjoying this book – in fact, if you stuck with “Deceptive Cadence” and enjoyed it, it’s safe to say that you will love the conclusion. I kept thinking to myself, “This can’t p ...more
- JAMES <3
- Austin - and that plot twist with him~
- Writing style was easy to read, like the previous book~! :)
- Fanfictioney feels~
Things that could have been better:
- Cadence as a character and her decisions - I didn't agree with her choices and her agonisation was annoying to read
- A really perfect ending - wrapped up too neatly for me
Rating: 4 stars ...more
And we pick up from the first book in the series... This book taking you deeper into the story. Giving you so much more. This book is well written, doesn't leave you dwindling with trying to get into it, it will captivate you right from the beginning! Can't wait to see what more this author has coming!
*Received for an honest review*
I have to admit it took me a while to get to the second book. I didn't want to see what she chose! I wanted to read these books to see if given the chance would my choices be different? I hadn’t thought that it would be a love triangle once the second book started. This is where she meets her future husband again. I didn’t want her to meet him again. I actually had to put it down several times and do something else. I couldn’t believe ...more
