Beware! Past Choices Always Catch Up!

"Twisted Innocence"
   By Terri Blackstock

Any book by this author is a winner by my standards, thus , I was very excited when chosen to review this new one. This book is the heart pounding conclusion to the Moonlighters Series.  I have loved all of Terri's books, full of intrigue and mystery, succeeding in causing my heart to throb , sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next unexpected event to occur.

Romantic Times gives Terri Blackstock's Twisted Innocencefour stars! Written for anyone who's ever made bad choices, this thrilling conclusion in Blackstock's Moonlighters trilogy is packed with romance, danger, and intrigue.
Holly Cramer's past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.
Though Holly's stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily's father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family---she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he's a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.
Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller---the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he's innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can't trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.
Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.

NOTE: While this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone.

This is truly a book filled with mystery,fears, trials,  as well as love, with the theme of redemption comes through loud and clear. I felt that it got off to a slow start and I was getting a bit concerned that it would not meet my expectations from this particular author, however, by the third chapter, I was entranced and glued to the page. 

The characters are well developed and so realistic that you immediately connect with them, feeling their fears, challenges, confusion and yes, even their mistakes in life, become your own. 

As the plot develops, there are twists and turns constantly , filling you with fear and worry . Just when I thought that I had answers for some of the problems, another shocking event would occur to cause more confusion. Throughout the story, an important message shines through, even at the darkest moments. There is hope and redemption for ALL of us, regardless of the mistakes made in the past. God can heal and take those bad moments away, making them into learning experiences that are valuable to our growth in the Christian walk. 

This is another five star book !!  Now, I can hardly wait for the next new series!!
