This was my first read from Jill Sanders and I loved it! I am a new fan!

This book had a little bit of everything! From Suspense, action to ROMANCE! I don't like leaving spoilers in my reviews, but I will say the whole time I was reading, I wasn't expecting the end result! It literally made me gasp out loud as I found out who the perpetrator really was!

Rose & Sawyer are GOALS! I love them together, they compliment each other so well! Must read for sure!

Romance, mystery, action, suspense, and so many twists and turns.....this story keeps you on your toes. I loved Rose and Sawyer together. They didn't meet again under the best of circumstances, but Sawyer helps Rose through a difficult time and events keep bringing them together until they just can't deny their attraction. A shocking twist you don't see coming and a HEA along with two adorable and loving dogs makes this a great read!

Twisted Rock is by far my favorite Jill Sanders book. I was totally blown away with all the twists in this one. All I have to say is I didn't see that coming. Just wow. This is one book you need to read if you love a good mystery. Your heart may break just a little for Rose as you read along. But you will love how Rose finds her strength again and is able to come back to the light. Even with Roses life turned upside down she still manages to find what she didn't know she need or wanted in Sawyer ...more

This was a good mystery. I liked the little twist at the end. Rose gets the news that her husband was killed in a plane crash and she just checks out of life for a while. One day she sort of wakes up and decides that she needs to live again. She finds out that her husband had a mistress and a child. They had put off having children because he wasn't ready. Then when she is having the house worked on, her husband's body is discovered in her basement. How could all of this happen? The man who told ...more

Action packed, sweetly sexy and emotionally thrilling mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat and just when I thought I had it all figured out a new heart pounding twist....... Loved it!

Rose is a sweet, smart and artistic soul, living her dream life when it all comes to a grinding jolt with the loss of her one true love.... Sawyer is a strong, sexy, brooding cop that just moved to town after his wife left him for his best friend. He is also the one that had to deliver the worst news to Rose.

A new read from Jill Sanders! Rose's husband is killed when his plane plunges into the Atlantic Ocean. She is totally devastated. She retreats into her own dark depression until Sawyer, the cop who had to break the bad news in the first place, drops by and sees the mess she is. This prompts Rose to get back on her feet.
From then on the series of incidents that make it seem like Rose has something to hide. While Sawyer can't see that being her.....

4.25 Hearts Wow! This was not what I expected. First Rose has the carpet pulled out from under her when she learns of her husbands death, then she finds out he had a whole other life she did not know of, and then (not even) last but not least she finds her husbands body when she is having the house worked on and the mistress is blaming her!

What more could go wrong? Oh trust me… in this story a lot more.

Rose had fallen in love with Isaac Clayton when they were children at school together. They had grown up together and went straight into their perfect marriage. They eventually settled away from the city in their huge house. It was a renovation project but eventually it would make the perfect family home. Isaac still worked in the city, but he always made it home as often as possible. He always showed that he was thinking of Rose when he couldn't make it home by sending her favourite flowers.

I was really enjoying this and had originally decided on 4 stars until the convoluted ending. It was so unbelievable and such a let down after the build up had been so interesting.

The first two chapters I was not sure I was going to like this book. It started off with all this information but not much interaction with the characters. I will say this hang in there it got good, really good. This book has so many twists and turns right when you think you know who did it the author throughs you a curve ball out of no where and then you are back to guessing again. I loved how the love that Rose has in her heart for those she loves literally jumps off the pages you can almost p ...more

Established author jumps genre to write a exhilarating novel about uncovering salacious secrets in a sophisticated domestic drama. In the interest of pining a new Genre, Ms. Sanderson brings her knowledge of character and plot designs a story about the unthinkable within family and friends.
As Sawyer the bearer of bads news also becomes the Savior, Rose has to unravel the lies presented by her own husband. To the detriment of how she believed a marriage worked.

In Twisted Rock you get more than just romance. There is a mystery and it is full of suspese. Rose Clayton and her husband Isaac Clayton are childhood sweethearts and then one day he dies in a plane crash. A year

This was a good mystery, it took a lot of twists and turns. The characters were likable and realistic. Looking into how a woman would deal with the grief of her husband only to learn he had a mistress. Trying to move on while clearing her name. A good, cozy read.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy.

Whoa, the title kind of gives you a clue about the book - full of twists and turns, you just never can believe anything until the end. I want to be careful and not give away part of the story with spoilers!

Rose really had a shock when her husband died in a plane crash but that is just the start of all the things that get revealed to her. Along the way, she has the help of Royce Sawyer, one of the officers that informed her of her husband's death.

This was my first time reading this author and I found it quite enjoyable. I am not going to give a book report, others have done a fine job of that , and, the jacket cover gives adequate to information on the subject. Just my thoughts! I first thought it was heading toward a little too much romance and sex rather than mystery, but the more I read, the more intriguing it became. While you may think you are heading for a totally predictable ending, there are a few twists along the way. Not a heav ...more
