Review: Twisted by Laura Griffin

The latest murder in the small Texas town of San Marcos is has thinking that they got the killer locked up tight. But when one of the few female detectives on the force, rookie Allison Doyle starts to question their prime suspect no one wants to hear it. Late one night Allison walks into a convenience store robbery and because she has so much on her mind the robber gets the jump on her and she’s almost taken out. Luckily FBI profiler Mark Wolfe just happens to be inside the store also and jumps to her rescue.

Mark has arrived in town because he suspects that the latest murder is part of a series of murders that he’s been tracking down for years. Together Allison and Mark turn to the Delphi Center’s experts for help convincing the powers that be that they’ve got the wrong man and to pick up the trail of the real killer.

Man I just love reading Laura’s books. They are like reading a CSI episode with but more action and believability when it comes to the investigation. I’m always amazed by Laura’s attention to detail in the crime investigation. If I didn’t know better I would say that she’s probably a forensic investigator herself. The romance part of the book is also realistic. It’s not just a convenient plot line that throws the main characters into a relationship. It comes naturally which makes it all the more believable. There’s also a serious creep factor in this one that kept me guessing until the very end. I highly recommend this one for anyone who loves romantic suspense.

Romances in books like this can bug me because they seem so unrealistic - it sounds like it's done well in this book.
