TWISTED

Author:  Andrea Kane
Genre:  Romantic Suspense, FBI Series #1
Published:  2008
Personal Rating:  3.5/5 (good)
Format:  Audiobook
Yearly Count:  1


Former FBI agent and hostage negotiator Sloan Burbank currently works as a consultant due to a hand injury.  Receiving no success elsewhere and wanting a fresh look at their cold case, her childhood friend's parents call her to ask for assistance in finding their daughter who has been missing for a year.

Ugh!  I didn't know this was a "romantic suspense" series.  I don't mind a little hanky-panky in my books, but there was too much for me in this one.  My purpose for reading suspense/thrillers is for the excitement in solving the crime (chase) - not the excitement in the bedroom.  Needless to say, I most likely will not continue with this series.  We'll see.

In relationship to the plot, I was disappointed with that, too.  It was without a doubt . . . unoriginal.  I felt like I had read this scenario a million times (probably have!), but I still wanted to know the ending.  Ultimately, it was good, but too familiar.

  1. I hate it when a plot isn't very original and that you've been there before!

    1. Staci ~ I think it must be very difficult for an author to create something fresh.

  2. Your first tip off that it was a romantic suspense should have been that her name was Sloan ;)

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ LOL I don't read romance novels, so that wasn't something I would pick up on. I will definitely keep that in mind, though. Thanks!
