“It is weird that I still meet my mother almost every day.

I am 35 years old. But that is not why it is weird.

It is because nobody else has seen her since 18th September, 20 years ago.

Because, that is the day she died.”

Meet Ria, the charming woman with an edge. Her life is nearly perfect. Or so it seemed, until one fateful day an accident wipes out parts of her memory. Suddenly, she starts to experience strange visions involving repressed childhood memories which send shivers down her spine.

A man called ‘Anuj’ whom she can’t remember.

The sadness that led to her mother’s sudden death.

Answers that her husband Jay refuses to share.

Secrets begin to resurface and Ria is left with no option but to confront her own fears.

Twisted is a tale of love, family and friendship, where bitter memories and shocking truths drive everyone to the point where they have to decide – Will the relationships crumble to dust or can love really conquer all?

    Let me begin with the book cover. Mixed with delightful colours amidst the embossed title and the eye which intrigued me to read more, this book scores 10/10 for the selection of a beautiful and intriguing cover. The cover depicts the storyline of the book and you will understand when you read it.
    The author has given a perfect blend of emotions in her work of fiction.
    The story revolves around three characters which include a female protagonist who loses her memory all of a sudden. Her character is built beautifully that every girl who seems to be complex can relate to.
    The story is relatable at every point. The story taught me various important lessons including,
    1. You have flaws and it is okay.
    2. Childhood trauma lasts a lifetime and it is important to give and have a good childhood. The depth is shown beautifully.
    3. It is beautiful and important to love the ones with flaws. The way protagonist’s husband takes care of her makes us smile and makes us fall in love with his character.
    The revealing secrets by layer by layer put the reader on the edge of the seat.
    It is a known fact that not everyone can read a book fully. I completed reading this book in less than two days. For, the way the book was woven in a way that it was impossible to put it down.
    The ending is totally unexpected and was carefully shaped.
    1. simple English.
    2. bold and convincing narration.
    3. A script that emanated confidence of author in her narration.
    4. The way the layers of secrets were revealed was amazing.
    5. The mix of supernatural element was in appropriate proportion.
    6. Teaches the importance of love, friendship via the characters.
    7. Not clumsy. crisp and up to point.
    8. Importance of confronting your fears is said beautifully.
    9. Importance of good childhood is explained exactly.
    10. Other various life lessons were made understood in a pleasant and deep manner.
    Few parts of narration were little draggy, but it is negligible if you compare the pros the book offers you.
    Good luck to the author for more works to come in future.
