Fiction

After a failed relationship, Amanda Jackson returns to the small town she’d fled in her youth—a town full of secrets and lies. Amanda is drawn to a former childhood acquaintance, Scott Flynn, who has secrets of his own. They become entangled in a web of violence and murder that threatens to destroy more than their love.

Excerpt

“What happened to you?” she whispered, to the ghostly reflection. “Where did you go wrong?”
As she stood looking at this sorrowful image of herself, memories of their first meeting came flooding back…the day she’d found the love all women long for.
“But you ran from him because you didn’t have the guts to profess your love!” her reflection accused. “Amanda, her death is all your fault! You knew what she was capable of!”
“Stop it!” she cried, covering her eyes. She didn’t want to remember but had to face the truth. She had to remember—bring back the past. It was the only way she could deal with the girl’s death.



Professional Reviews

A Twisted Nod
“Amanda Jackson retreats to her old hometown after a love affair gone bad. She had been deeply in love with Dan Owen and thought they were happy, that is until she found out Dan was cheating on her. Back at her childhood home, Amanda meets Scott Flynn, an acquaintance from the past. Scott has inherited his father’s hardware business and volunteers to fix up the old homestead for Amanda. Amanda is sure that Scott is just hitting on her, so she is extremely disappointed that he actually works on the house and never even asks her out.
A Twisted Nod is a great romance with a lot of very difficult obstacles for each of the characters to negotiate. Amanda has to deal with her broken heart and painful memories from her youth. Scott has to deal with his guilt over letting go of his deceased wife, as well as his stepdaughter’s unhealthy expectations of him. This story has a nice smooth, gentle pace that is perfect for a lazy afternoon read. There’s also an interesting psycho twist with the stepdaughter.” Tami Brady, TCM Reviews
