4.5 sexy, chilling, whodunit? stars!

Twisted is the second book in Cynthia Eden’s thrilling romantic suspense series, LOST. Like the first installment, Broken, Twisted is an exciting murder mystery with plenty of suspects who all have motives, and that kept me guessing almost to the end!

Dean Bannon was an FBI agent until the bureau’s rules and delays led to the death in a case he was working. After that he left the bureau to work for Last Option Search Team or LOST, a group of specialists in tracking down missing people. Dean comes to New Orleans looking for a missing sixteen year-old girl, Julia. It seems the last one to see Julia alive is Emma Castille, a street vendor with a knack for reading people. To Dean, Emma is just another con artist bilking the public out of money to ...more

Hot damn, but this book was fantastic!

“I. Love. You. And I don’t care if it’s too soon or too fast. You’re the only one who has ever gotten this close to me. I think about you all the time. I want to make you smile. I want to give you the whole world. And when I lost you . . .” His voice roughened. “Everything went dark. Everything. I wasn’t sane without you. I need you that much. So much that I don’t want to think of a life without you. I can’t.”

Dean Bannon is ex-FBI, and working for LOST

Dean is the control freak of the LOST team, never letting his guard down and always feeling the pain of the lost that won't be found. While down in New Orleans to find Julia, a missing 16 year old, he meets Emma. Emma is a free spirit that lets her emotions lead her. She's also very good at reading people and noticing what most people don't.

Emma is Dean's only lead in his investigation, but she won't help him unless he let's her work with him to bring Julia home. Neither of them expected Emma t

The second book in the Lost series blew me away!

When I read the blurb, I wasn’t as excited as I had been about Broken but I was so wrong! I loved this book more than I did the first one.

The team is needed once again! Dean travels all the way to New Orleans in search of a runaway sixteen year old girl. He may not find what he’s looking for but fate has other plans for him.

Emma Castille is a "reader" not in the psychic sense, but rather in the vein of Sherlock Holmes or Patrick Jane (The Mentalist). She joins forces with former FBI agent, Dean Bannon, in the search for a missing sixteen year old girl who appears to be the latest victim of a serial killer in the Big Easy.

The second book in Cynthia Eden's LOST series hits all the right notes. Set in New Orleans (a favorite of mine), the story utilizes the gothic atmosphere and spooky vibe of the city t

Review posted on Got Fiction?

Dean Bannon has been hired to find a young girl who the police have written off as a runaway. But that’s what he and his team at the LOST (Last Option Search Team) do, they find the missing. What he doesn’t expect to find is a sexy little fortune teller who could either break the case, or break his heart….or maybe both.

Emma Castille saw Julia on the night she was taken, but she doesn’t know that. She only knows that the girl was afraid and didn’t want to go home. Whe

Still phenomenal. Thank god the third book isn't out yet, or I wouldn't even have taken the time to write these lines....

I find that romance & suspense don't really mix well in books. Either the love story will take too much space, or the "mystery" will not be mysterious at all because the plot is too easy to figure out. But Cynthia Eden found the perfect balance : she surprises us with wonderful twists AND still manages to make the love story believable & sweet.
Amazing, I have nothing else to

I firmly believe that Cynthia Eden lives by the old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. In book two of her Lost Series Ms. Eden once again takes us for a walk on the dark side. We ride along as she shares the twisted mind of the truly evil.

But she doesn't just bring us evil, she always adds loyalty and friendship, love and forever ties that bind us deeper than any law or rule. While she cloaks her books in a curtain of darkness she offers us the light of

I'm really enjoying the LOST Series and all of the great characters of the organization. The main character in this one was Dean, a former FBI agent and LOST employee, who is in New Orleans to find a runaway teen. During his search, he comes across Emma Castille. Emma believes that something bad has happened to Julia, the teen. Dean is skeptical of Emma due to her unsavory past, but he soon find himself falling hard for this woman. Emma feels the same, but it becomes clear that they are both in ...more

3.5 stars. I must admit, I only read this because I was curious how h and H of book 3 meet each other - I love when couples come from different backgrounds. Unfortunately h+H of book 2 aren't this different, maybe that's the reason why I couldn't connect with them. The side characters were far more interesting. The story was good, especially the last third was suspenseful and I couldn't put it down. Now I'm very looking forward to book 3 :) ...more

Personal Thoughts:

Reading this book is like watching an awesome episode of "Criminal Minds" with the plus of a good romance added to it. 

If you love both... jump right in and read it!!


LOST aka Last Option Search Team specializes in tracking down missing people and Dean Bannon joined to escape FBI's bureaucracy and delays that take away precious time when dealing with missing people cases.

After I read Broken last month I couldn't wait to get my hands on Twisted, the second book in Cynthia Eden's LOST series... And let me tell you, for as much as I loved Broken, I think I loved Twisted even more.

Thanks to her father, Emma has always been good at reading people. She doesn't claim to be psychic, she just happens to see things most people don't... Like the fear in a runaways eyes, for example. When Dean shows up at Emma's stand in New Orleans he's expecting nothing but a con artist.

TWISTED was a great addition to the LOST series. I may have enjoyed this one a little better due to the more direct plot. Dean and Emma were just as great together as Gabe and Eve.

Although Dean believes Emma is a fraud making a living off being a psychic, he can’t help his immediate attraction to her and when she has information on the 16 year old girl he’s looking for, it gives him the opportunity to keep an eye on her.

Emma doesn’t claim to be psychic, but she can make deductions based off th

I enjoy Cynthia Eden's romantic suspense books. She does the suspense very well and usually has you guessing as to the killer. In the first book the most obvious character turned out not to be the killer but in this one, the most obvious one was the killer, albeit with a twist. It worked for me though. The suspense was very entertaining.

As to the romance, I always feel as if I want just a little something more than I get with her. While I liked the love story I wasn't overly fond of the hero and

I crown Cynthia Eden the queen of mystery and suspense with a side of alpha male/ strong heroine romance.

I just can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this book. Before I was a nasty smut girl, I was a die hard reader of James Patterson, Lisa Gardner and Mary Higgens Clark. I grew into a lover of love....and hot sex (yes!) but from time to time I miss the good old days of heart pounding suspense and whodunit.

Once again Cynthia Eden has proven why she is on my list of must read authors. She has a knack for making her characters come to life and at every page turn one can't help feeling as if they are living the story at every page turn. Twisted is the second book in the LOST series and like its predecessor, it takes the reader on one heck of a ride. It’s a fast paced and riveting story that’s filled with romance, mystery, drama and suspense.

Right from the beginning Twisted jumps right in with the action. I am loving this group from LOST. The suspense, the action, the constant guessing who did it. There was insta-love in this one, which is usually a turn off but it worked.

Dean is the calm cool collected, ex FBI agent sent to look for Julia a missing sixteen year old. He finds way more than he bargained for when he asks Emma, a street fortune teller for help.

This is the second in the series, and highlights Dean, ex-FBI member of the LOST team. All the team feature, so although it is an easy stand alone, there is some back story which adds to the book.
