Twist of Faith

Twist of Faith: Summary

When family secrets are unearthed, a woman’s past can become a dangerous place to hide…

After the death of her adoptive mother, Ava Saunders comes upon a peculiar photograph, sealed and hidden away in a crawl space. The photo shows a shuttered, ramshackle house on top of a steep hill. On the back, a puzzling inscription: Destiny calls us.

Ava is certain that it’s a clue to her elusive past. Twenty-three years ago, she’d been found wrapped in a yellow blanket in the narthex of the Holy Saviour Catholic Church—and rescued—or so she’d been told. Her mother claimed there was no more to the story, so the questions of her abandonment were left unanswered. For Ava, now is the time to find the roots of her mother’s lies. It begins with the house itself—once the scene of a brutal double murder.

When Ava enlists the help of the two people closest to her, a police detective and her best friend, she fears that investigating her past could be a fatal mistake. Someone is following them there. And what’s been buried in Ava’s nightmares isn’t just a crime. It’s a holy conspiracy. Ellen J. Green

Twist of Faith

I got Twist of Faith as my Amazon first in January. It has taken me a while to read it! The storyline appealed to me as I’ve been reading a lot of mystery, detective stories. I enjoyed the overall premise and the different characters involved. And the storyline did keep me guessing with many different twists and turns. However, as the story went on it because very complicated and farfetched. I questioned the story when Ava the primary narrator was killed. It didn’t make sense for this to happen. there was no cause or effect. Almost as if the author needed a way of pushing the plot forward and this was what they chose. It did push the story forward but in an extremely off-putting and clunky fashion.

Overall I had high hopes for this book, it seemed to have everything I enjoy in a story within. However, it was confusing, forced and in places far too farfetched and unrealistic with an extremely disappointing ending. So as I said I thought it had potential but I don’t believe it lived up to it.
