"My heart is breaking with every word you don't say..."

The Secrets and Second Chances Series by Donna Zadunajsky is a great collection of mystery, murder, romance, and secrets. What more could you want? They don't have to be necessarily read in order because each is a complete plot onto itself. The series is about friends and lives that touch each other over time and distance, showing the bonds we develop that last a lifetime.

"Twisted Secrets", Zadunajsky's latest in the series, is my absolute favorite! This novel is also a psychological thriller! I don't want to give away any spoilers, especially not with this book where there are so many twists and turns you never see coming and keep you guessing long past the last page is turned.

This book will haunt you for many days, months, and years. You'll be inclined to read it again and again to follow the Twisted Secrets that plague a seemingly "normal" family in a quiet small town. And that is the true measure of a great work of fiction ... staying power. Characters you can't forget; secrets that unfold and then twist into a whole new secret ... each more thrilling and dangerous than the last.

Don't ever tear out the last short chapter ... and don't be tempted to read it too soon ... save the best, most thought-provoking Twisted Secret for the last gasping moment of this luscious paradox of events that definitely are not what they appear to be at first glance. Chills and anticipation will leave you breathless throughout the entire book. Never a dull moment ... in a quiet small town.

This book had me hooked on page 11 with one sentence, Because after today the cat would come out to play... That single sentence to others may have seemed so simple yet to me it gripped me and pulled me into the story even more. I found it an enjoyable read and a good mystery that kept me guessing. Can't wait to see what comes next from Donna M. Zadunajsky.
