One widow, one killer--who will die first?

Gutsy, grieving Anna is determined to find who murdered her husband. Hampered by agonizing loneliness, her obsessive-compulsive mother, and her over-controlling father, she defies convention and the law to investigate on her own. When she runs up against a handsome police detective who’s determined to save Anna from herself, she has to step up her rogue search for the killer before time, and dwindling leads, runs out.

While growing up, going to libraries felt like an adventure filled with mystery and wonder to Debra. The hushed tones invoked secrets, and the dusty, sometimes moldy scent of paper smelled like perfume. Leaving the library with just a single book never happened. Years later, her love of reading turned to passion for writing. Debra’s an award-winning artist who lives in southern Arizona where the average summer temperatures are truly hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk.

A Strange Twist of Fate has a heroine, Anna, who is systematic and single-minded about finding the person who murdered her husband. I enjoyed the way the author developed this character, someone with surprising strengths and self-taught talents in spite of the opposition she faced. She also has her insecurities, several based on her family’s weaknesses. I also enjoyed the hero, Lee Adams, as he reaches out to protect her in spite of facing his own problem with trying to finalize a divorce. Other secondary, and even tertiary characters such as some of the law enforcement personnel, lawyers, Anna’s parents, and shady characters I to be believable. They enhanced the story. I enjoyed how this Anna developed her crew of undercover informants, and how she gave back to make their lives better. Then there was the private investigator. She didn’t show up until the end, but she was one of those “twists” in the book. Another twist was how Anna, an intelligent young woman who married rather than getting her college degree, found her true professional calling.

As much as the characters were well-written and kept me turning pages, the plot was, as the title implies, full of twists. A reader who believes this story is one-dimensional is in for a treat. There are images of DNA strands on the cover. The role they play are different than what I first guessed they would as part of a murder mystery. The more Anna and Lee work towards a resolution, the more the two run into twists. Dangers that arise are not of the nature as they first appear to be. The biggest threat to Anna comes from an unexpected source. The story was not predictable, which I really liked.

This book is a well-written romantic suspense/murder mystery with sweet romance elements. The language is mild. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good read  by a talented author.
