About The Book

1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next.
After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…


My Thoughts

This is one of those books that totally fulfil their title; Twisted!
Since the beginning I was totally glued to this story, without knowing who to trust or what to believe, we will be introduced to a not happy marriage with a lot of secrets between them. Maria, an egocentric woman who has an affair, will discover that her husband has hidden a big secret from her since the beginning, and she decides to shake him a little bit and see what happens next… I didn’t like Maria at all, she likes to lie and always gets what she wants no matter what, so be prepared for a twisted character that will not have an ounce of empathy in her heart.
Paul is the husband, he is not who everybody think he is, but he has a motive to hide his past, everyone that tries to discover the truth appears dead, so better keep the secret hiden, don’t you think?
Then we have the mysterious author J.T. LeBeau, the one writing the book that has advised since the first page that you should not believe a word written on it! I am sure that your first thought is I have to read it right now!
This is a book full of stories inside one, and the reader will have to discover which one to follow and to believe, which character to believe or which one to doubt, there are so many twists that it will be difficult to follow the truth.
I have to admit this book was totally a surprise to me, the way it is written and explained kept me invested on the story since the beginning. Original, full of twists and surprised, I can not stop to recommend you reading Twisted.
