TWISTED by Laura K. Curtis

Laura K. Curtis' new romantic suspense e-book, TWISTED, comes out this week. 

Here's the book description: 
Lucy Sadler Caldwell is a successful true-crime writer. But the one story she's never been able to come to terms with is the murder of her own mother--until now.  She's returned to Dobbs Hollow, Texas, the hometown she fled seventeen years ago, to finally expose the real killer. 
After a bullet took out his knee in Houston, Detective Ethan Donovan found himself without a lot of options, which is how he ended up as Chief of Police in Dobbs Hollow. Lucy sure isn't asking for his help--she's not big on trust--but he can't help feeling a strong desire to come to her aid. 
And though Lucy is armed to the teeth, she will need all the help she can get. When she starts digging into the past, she unearths a psychotic killer who will stop at nothing to silence her forever...
Both my mom and I read the book and liked it. 

My Mom's Take:
Mom describes the main character Lucy as, "intelligent, brave and yet so vulnerable." She liked how Lucy used her true crime writing experience and applied it to trying to figure out the mystery. Mom got right into her character. She felt the focus of the book was more on the mystery rather than the romance. 

Deb's Take:
Lucy is a great main character who drives the story. She is so brave through all of her struggles, which I won't go . I agree with Mom, that the book is more focused on mystery than the romance. TWISTED is a fun read.    

Laura is giving away something every day for the month of November on her blog. Lots of fun to be had, including an opportunity to win book earrings that I made. Check it out.  

You can order TWISTED here. You may also want to check out her How to be a Romance Hero Guide. It's very fun.  


  1. I love brave female characters, sounds like a must read.

  2. It sounds like I'd really like Lucy and need to get to know her.
