It's hard to believe the series is coming to a close!

The idea for Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit came eight years ago. I was thinking about the end of society as we know it and thought, "What if it's not from some huge catastrophe or war? What if it happens because of the collapse of the dollar?" From there, the story grew into the trilogy today.

The phrase, "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" is taken from the United States Declaration of Independence, signed July 4, 1776.

**This is Book 3 and these books must be read in order**

I'm a little bit devastated. This has been an amazing series and I'm so sad to see it come to an end. These characters have jumped off of the pages, coming to life for me. I feel like they are real friends (and enemies) and this thrilling conclusion is perfect for these people. But I really don't want to leave Logan Pond yet...

This story is very believable, as it takes place in the not-so-distant future. Chief Jamansky is pure evil and it

I loved this trilogy! Great story and characters and I read them all within a week!

I was so happy to read this last book in the Citizens of Logan Pond series but sad because I really have enjoyed them and the characters. But the twists and turns throughout had me really struggling to set it aside as needed. I wanted to just read straight through but life and exhaustion made this book take longer than I wanted! But I finally finished it! Oh my word how many twists were involved? Lots. I didn't see some of them coming and others I anticipated something like that to happen.

A timely book. The fictional world created by Belliston is incredibly scary because it is so plausible.

The trilogy begins after a complete collapse of the US economy. The remaining government under President Rigsby enacts emergency laws, restricts freedoms, and makes little progress toward a return to normalcy. The population is divided into roughly four groups: government workers, people who were at least moderately wealthy before the crash, a huge majority who are essentially government slave

This is the conclusion to the Logan Pond series. It started out with a heart-thudding scene and never let up. I kept cringing, grimacing, wringing my hands as scene after tense scene kept upping the suspense. It was a nail-biter’s nightmare (which means it was awesome in the literary sense—but terrible in the manicure department). There was non-stop action as Carrie, Greg, Amber, Zach and Oliver struggled to survive in the United States of Terror as Chief Zamansky and other evil power players co ...more

Oh my goodness. I loved the first two books and waited in anticipation for this one. It did not disappoint. It kept me hooked from the beginning to the end, and wrapped up the story very nicely. Loved it. Definitely a must read, especially if you love end of the world novels. I find it very realistic too.

This is the third book in the Citizens of Logan Pond series and definitely my favorite of them all. Each book got progressively better and I'm glad I stuck with this series after the first book (which wasn't my favorite).

In my review of the first book I mention that I don't like Greg at all. I'm not sure I came out of this series loving him, but he definitely mellowed and became less abrasive in books two and three. He has many redemptive qualities that came out more in the second and third boo

Wow what a ride.

GreAt three book series The Pursuit had me on the edge of my seat. I loved the characters . Carrie is sweet and very innocent even at age 22 and her character is written perfectly. Greg is the perfect hero just trying to stay under the rader. The author has taken a different approach to a dystopian future, no war, no zombies and no emps. I loved this authors approach and recommend this series at 5Stars

Can I cry that the trilogy is over? I didn't want it to end.

This is the fourth book I have read by this author, and once again the story is tense, full of surprises and plot twists. To say it is like a roller coaster would be an understatement.

As a side note, the titles for the books in this series are brilliant.

Don't stop writing, Rebecca! You've got a loyal fan over here.

I was looking forward to the conclusion of this series, because Liberty left me really hanging and I wanted to know just what happened to all of these characters I had grown to love.

I like Carrie, I love the way that she is so naive and really still expects the best of really everyone and everything around her. But at the same time, her naivety, gets her into trouble in the world that she lives in. I love the way that she goes through many hard things and is really able to bounce back from her h

Pursuit was absolutely captivating! This is the final book in the Citizens of Logan Pond series and I couldn't have hoped for a better finale. There are so many twists and turns, lies, deceptions and schemes. It leaves you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next.

Pursuit has a really good pace. It moves fast and there's lots of action and drama. Then some times it slows down and time stands still like you're actually seeing what they're seeing, you're feeling and experienc

“The Pursuit” is timely fiction set in a dystopian America where a president has seized power, making law-abiding citizens enemies of the state.

Finished reading “The Pursuit”--- the last book of the dystopian trilogy “Citizens of Logan Pond”. Couldn’t put it down. Love Love Loved it. Full of suspense and romance, and is a thought-provoking story on top of it all. I highly recommend this series!

Lots of action and suspense in the last book of this dystopian series, but just enough cute moments too for those who like romance. I loved how each book really went with the title and connected all together with her theme. #CitizensofLoganPond

I may change this review when I'm done reading the book, But at this point I'm only three-quarters of the way through. I am really upset by how everyone just keeps believing David Jamansky. I don't understand how a guy that continuously lies to everyone and gets caught in these lies hold any weight with his words to any of the other characters. It is extremely frustrating to me and is raising my blood pressure. I'm absolutely outraged that this book it's taking this long to finish because David ...more

Book 3 continues the saga of the gentle Citizens of Logan Pond, and it’s still a sweet futuristic romantic suspense, but our heroine and hero spend more time apart than together as everyone struggles against their oppressors and the suspense soars. Eww. Still vividly written, so much so I’d put the book down to make a sandwich and feel guilty I had food in my refrigerator and wasn’t doing more to help Carrie and Greg. 4 stars because our heroine/hero find their HEA; 5 stars if I was a fan of sus ...more

I loved this book and the series!! The idea of what would happen to our country during a financial collapse is such a fun and intriguing premise of this series! Specifically with this book, I think it is amazing how this is book three and it was just as good, if not better, than book one. Many times the first book in a trilogy is the best and you are let down by the other two a bit. But I didn't feel that was the case here at all. I think the third one may have been my favorite!

I really loved this book. It was a great closing to the series. The ending was so good. I have loved all of the books in this trilogy, which is really fun, because that is usually not the case with a series. All of these books have been page-turners for me, and they have kept me hooked. It was a great series.

I really liked these books because they stayed clean and interesting however I thought the first two books stay very depressing. The third book finally started to get hopeful. Get I guess this really isn't my genre. It was well written stayed very clean but I thought it was really depressing.

I sure loved this series and the characters in it. Normally I never like the third book in a trilogy, but this series was the opposite. I enjoyed each of the books and didn't get sick of it. Great idea and I recommend the series to any dystopian lovers! ...more

This one wasn't as good as the first two, but it was still worth the read. Greg is still my favorite character. I love his down home vocabulary and gentleness, his intelligence, and his fighting spirit. I love that he (and the others) finally got the happiness he worked so hard for. The motorcycle scene was funny. As was the ribbing he gave Jamansky about his bed. It seemed to get a little crazy at some points with everyone getting arrested. And some of the story wasn't totally believable. But I ...more

Awesome conclusion to the series

This was a great book! It had been quite a while since I'd read the second book so I didn't remember all the details of what had happened, but the author did a good job of filling in the blanks so it all made sense. I loved the characters and how they all developed through the series. The plot was fast paced and intriguing and made it hard to put the book down. But alas, I had to take care of my children and wasn't able to read for hours on end like I wanted to, l

What happened to the dogs?

Other then that I really enjoyed this story. The twists, the truns had me guessing and hanging on. I did find it a little scary how realistic some this story seemed for a dystopian noval, a genre I usually don't like this up there!

This was a hard one for me to read. It was intense the whole time. Everything went wrong the whole time. I liked the idea of everything that happened, I just wish some things had gone their way some of the time.

A good finish to the series. It was nice that there was more happening than just wrapping up previous problems from the earlier books. Definitely a series I would recommend.

Rebecca Belliston loves books and music. Even more, she loves to write both. As an author, she writes clean romances with heart-pounding suspense. She also composes religious and classical-style piano and vocal music. When she’s not writing, she loves to play tennis, make sarcastic comments, or cuddle up with a good book—usually not at the same time. She and her husband have five children and live ...more
