Review: Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock PLUS Nook Giveaway!

Twisted-Innocence-PK I really enjoyed Twisted Innocence. It is the third book in a series, however, I had not read the first two books and I followed the storyline just fine. The author did a good job of catching me up to what had been going on in the previous books. I do think that my reading enjoyment would have been even greater had I read the whole series, but I still liked this book very much.

I really liked Holly Cramer. She has turned her life around for the sake of her new baby. She no longer runs with a wild crowd or parties her days and nights away. She is dedicated to this sweet baby girl and to doing the best she can for her. I sometimes found myself frustrated with Holly’s siblings, because they doubted that she had really changed her ways. But, truly, their reluctance to believe that she wasn’t going to fall back into her previous behavior makes complete sense. These siblings have known her the longest. The fact that she has made a permanent change is something hard to believe when they have seen her slip so many times before.

There is a continuing story throughout the three books that deals with a powerful drug lord. I did not have any trouble following this plot. Holly’s family and other people close to their family have been brutally targeted and have had many problems because of this man. The continuing battle against his evil hold on their city was thrilling.

This book flowed very smoothly and was a quick read for me. I enjoyed the plot and the characters and definitely recommend it for fans of suspense and romantic suspense.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, through Litfuse Publicity, in exchange for an honest review.

About the book:


Twisted Innocence (Zondervan, February 2015)

Holly Cramer’s past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.

Though Holly’s stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily’s father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family—she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he’s a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.

Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller-the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he’s innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can’t trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.

Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.
