Adieu to Destiny is Volume IV in the steamy hot and hilarious series The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod---

No white lace fantasies of Anabel Axelrod have ever been about weddings! When she and Luke decide to wait on the decision to marry, Anabel is secretly relieved. Surrounded with crazed brides-to-be and nonstop wedding plans by day, and nightmares of those predestined, four little babies at night, Anabel’s relief soon turns into outright panic at the thought of marriage--even to her Dream Man. With a jealous murderess on the loose, big trouble brewing at Luke’s company, troublemaking relatives, and horrifying black circles under her eyes, Anabel’s life is fast spiraling out of control. Being shockingly betrayed and then publically dumped by Luke Drake is just the buttercream icing on her 29 Forever, three-tiered, surprise birthday cake. In Adieu to Destiny, Anabel discovers to what lengths she is willing to go in the name of love, lust, and loyalty, even as she uncovers the dark depths to which others will sink.

About the Author

About Tracy Ellen... I was born in Indiana to middle-class parents, the third out of five hellions. I often used my supernatural powers to force my family members to listen to me talk and tell stories. When they laughed of their own free will, I knew the world would someday, somehow be my stage. Then I discovered writing and never looked back. I’m married and still tormenting the man I started stalking at age seventeen. Luckily, I'm speaking about the same man. We live in Minnesota and the historical town of Northfield featured in Anabel’s Adventures is just down the road a jaunt. I like writing about the values and independent spirits of people found in small town living, but definitely with a modern twist. I hope you enjoy my books! Let's stay in touch--sign up for my monthly newsletter and read my new, 2016 serial romance.

This series has to be the best I have ever read. I have never looked forward to the next book in a series as I did with this one. I absolutely love the authors sense of humor and writing abilities, I have never laughed so much reading any book as I did with this series. The author kept it interesting with the humor, mystery, attitudes, functional and slightly dysfunctional family members and friends, and of course the hotter than hot images of Luke that any red-blooded American female can conjure up and wish they had a Luke of their own! I went through all four books in the series (you HAVE TO read them in order to get the full effect and history) in 3 days - all while working full time and taking care of my family! If there were 100 stars to rate this series with I would absolutely rate it there, and them some!

I loved this book. I wanna be Anabel Axelrod when I grow up lol!! Never a dull moment when Anabel is around ---- keeps you on the edge of your seat to read what she and Luke are up to. I must say --- for a minute there I really thought you had destroyed them and was stunned but loved the way you worked them and everyone else reading!!! Thank you Tracy can't wait for the next book!!! Please make it sooner than later!!! Your books are filled with edginess, cunningness, adoration, and hope!!!!

Tracy Ellen has become my favorite author....her character Anabel Axelrod is smart, sassy, and wonderfully funny! She has become someone that I want to get to know better....I read the entire series in one week and this one in one night....who needs sleep when you can't bear to put the book down!   Try the first book and see if you don't get hooked!  Beth Holt

Anabel Axelrod is one of my favorite book characters! I just love how twisted her mind works; its many of the things we all say in our own heads but never repeat. I really like how “Adieu to Destiny”, as well as the rest of the series, is a mix of romance, mystery, and comedy. I find myself laughing at loud throughout the whole book. I absolutely love to read but very rarely re-read the same books more than once but the Axelrod series is one series that I have read multiple times and are my go-to-books when I cannot find anything good to read (or just need a little laugh).  I cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out and see what crazy antics Anabel does next.

I loved this entire series. The story line is captivating, the characters are interesting and the writing is so good. I laughed out loud more than once as I was reading. It might be hard to follow the story in Adieu to Destiny, Book IV, if you have not read the other books. The entire series is fantastic and I would recommend all 4 books in this series. I think there is one more coming out and I can't wait.

One of the best books I have read by a first time author! Couldn't put it down. Characters are richly dipicated having you yearning to read their next moves. Finished reading so I had to know what else was Bel and Luke up to. So of course I bought the next 3 books in the series. Now come on Spring so I can see what other delights this wonderful cast of characters has plotted.

I love Annabel and Luke, cant wait for the next one.

Although this is shorter than the other three books, it is still a very good read. I just wished Luke came up a little earlier in the book. Coz , no matter how smart, sassy, funny Anabel Axelrod, it is boring story without Luke. In conclusion, Tracy Ellen is a magnificent writer that you don't want to miss, hilarious, mysterious, romantic, suspense, all in one. Did I say hilarious. I love Anabel and Luke. I want to keep reading about them. Thank you Ms. Ellen, and kudos to you. Hope you don't keep as waiting too long for the next book. ; )

Tracy Ellen does it again! Adieu to Destiny is the 4th book in the Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series. You laugh, you cry and can't wait for the next book. The 1st book in the series, A Date With Fate, is a free ebook. All of Tracy's books are over 200 pages of well written romance/mysteries. Barb T

This series is funny, clever, witty, well written and intelligently written! I love looking up new words and love how brilliantly they are used. This is one very smart writer! I have already ordered Book 5 due out in July and can't wait to get it. I hope the series continues indefinitely! I tell everyone I talk to how great this writer is and how much they will enjoy the series. I also love the book covers too. Please don't stop Tracy! So far I have read all 4 books twice as has my husband who, unlike me, rarely laughs out-loud but both of us did on these books. Congrats Tracy for such good reads.

4.5 Stars. The antics of the Axelrod family and Anabel in particular leave me laughing - - - a lot! However, there was a twist (no. I won't tell you) that was so unexpected I quit reading the book for a day. I kept wondering 'how is Anabel going to deal with __________?' That incident was the ONLY reason I downgraded it to 4.5. This was another fast-paced read. It was full of action and advances the story line of each character nicely. I like how each chapter begins with the date, time and song title. That's a clever touch. Now, how long do I have to wait for Book 5? :-)

Anabel, Anabel, you’ve hooked me again. Adieu to Destiney is fun, sexy and fresh. Excitement packed into a juicy romance that will have you honing your detective skills as the mystery builds. We learn to see things a different way from Anabel’s unique analytic view on relationships and situations. It’s laugh out loud funny and, Swear to God, this fourth installment to the Adventures of Anabel Axelrod is a great read!
