What the hell did I just read? Shoot me now. Am I glutton for punishment or what? I seriously need my head examined. After reading one craptastic book, it seems I dove into another one except this one was worse. Not only was this novel a piece of crap, it was ridiculous and beyond cheesy. Hells bells I thought I was reading a fucking Harlequin novel written by Danielle Steel from decades ago. The writing was that corny. The story, the suspense, the romance, the characters - laughable and ...more

This was a very touching but endearing story with a VERY surprising ending. Abuse, no matter what form it is, causes such emotional pain for the person on the receiving end. In so many cases there are no happy endings and in some cases it will end in death. I'm glad that this story has been written even though in this case it is fictional. Sandi has told a story that needs to be told and she has done an excellent job. When a woman has been so brow beaten that she or her friends and family no ...more

The story line is a typical romance with all the Harlequin effects of it. An awesome dreamy boyfriend, a small shy girlfriend and the past of the girlfriend coming to haunt them. The story revolves around an abused girl who tries to run away from her past but the past catches upon and threatens to ruin her future. Unfortunately, the summary says it all. The entire 242 page story is said in the summary. The remaining of pages are just buffer fillers.

Wow, this book is what I would call a sleeper. I read the summary about Twisted Engagement and thought it seems like any other book that I’ve read but once I got into it I couldn’t put it down. I instantly fell for the main female character Lilly. She is down to earth and would rather hurt herself then hurt those around her. It really touched a cord with me. Lilly is also joined by the male lead

Twisted Engagement is a story of finding new love and starting over. Lilly cancels her engagement to David, says goodbye to her best friend Sue, sells her business, and leaves New York City. She ends up in Everly Flats, a small town in Colorado. On a flight from Denver she meets Glenn Parsons, a hotel owner, who gives her a ride to Everly Flats. He's good-looking, and it isn't too long before there's a romance between them. When Sue comes to visit Lilly, some really weird things start happening. ...more

I received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book, I thought it was handled very well and respectfully. However I had quite a few issues with it and not because it was written poorly or is a bad book - but because personally it affected me on an emotional level that didn't sit with me right due to my own history with the involved topic.
I really respect that the author was willing to create a story involving around abuse victims, there were a few things I agree

I enjoyed reading Twisted Engagement. From the beginning of Lily’s new start, meeting wonderful people and all the adventures along the way. The twist of a past relationship with an unstable guy made it interesting to read and kept me very captivated to see how it all was going to turn out. This is the second book I have read of Sandi Whipple’s and enjoyed it very much. I look forward to reading her next one which is already on my night stand.

I have to admit, I’m much better at answering questions than I am at writing about myself. I live in a small town of less than 500 people. The material available for writing a book by way of small town gossip is... well, I'm sure you can imagine. Of course I'd change the names to protect the guilty!

Want to win my heart? Mow my yard, bring me a bottle of Merlot, and I'm yours!
