To Twist or Not to Twist #OpenBookBlogHop

Welcome to another edition of Open Book Blog Hop. This week’s question is: “Plot twists…do you have a favorite you can talk about (yours or someone else’s?)”


I had to ponder this. I can’t think of any favorite plot twists, either in my books or anyone else’s. After reading a couple of other bloggers’ responses, I realized that I don’t want to give away any plot twists. If someone is reading the book in question, she might not want to finish it if she knows about a particular plot twist. If she hasn’t started reading it, she may not bother opening it to the first page. If she hasn’t purchased the book yet…

I say let plot twists be a surprise. There’s nothing wrong with a synopsis that gives the reader a basic idea of the story, but don’t spoil it for readers by giving away plot twists. If you want to know about mine, I suggest you visit my website and check them out for yourself. Happy reading!

New! The Red Dress

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
