  • Suze

    I picked this for my January First Read because the book listed as a thriller sounded too gruesome, although generally I would have chosen that one. What a surprise- this book is a mystery thriller. It's a very convoluted story, exciting and with unexpected twists- kept me guessing all the way to the end. I will not inject spoilers into my review, it has highly entertaining characters, and quite a complex plot.

    I will definitely read more by this author, this was a very surprising, very go

    Welp, Green successfully kept me in the dark as the story's pieces mixed and mingled, built to completeness, and then exploded into my lap. Religion, murder, mysterious pasts and presents; it's all here and I found myself saying, "NO WAY," at its surprising end.

    This book was free with my Kindle First Read. You have to read this novel without any interruptions, have to pay close attention. Not many characters but who they are or what they are doing or did will come to surprising ending. Plot is about Ava is trying to find out who was her real mother was and what happened to her.

    First of all, thank you to Amazon Publishing for providing me with a free finished copy of this book in exchange for my review! All opinions are my own.

    I have so many things to say about this book, but I can't say them because I don't want to give any spoilers away! So I will start by saying that I was really enjoying this book... until I got to the ending.

    has short chapters (love), multiple viewpoints (love), and I felt like there was quite a bit going on throughout the entire book (also love). I felt like I was reading it really slowly, but I did enjoy it so not sure why that happened.

    Of the viewpoints, there is a mystery man viewpoint and I always love when an author does that. I wasn't expecting this book to jump between POVs so much, but it wasn't bad and it didn't get confusing for me. Really it just jumps between our mystery man, Ava, the police detective Russell, Ava's friend Joanne, and Ava's aunt Marie. It was enough viewpoints that I got a feel for the big picture, but still had pretty much no idea what was going on.

    I also wouldn't call this book a thriller, but more of a straight up mystery. There were definitely a few tense scenes, but for the most part it was just plain mysterious. Also, I know I said there is a lot going on in this book, but it's not necessarily fast-paced, if that makes sense. Just a lot of moving pieces to the story.

    I will also say you don't need to read the blurb before reading this book, it is SO much more than what the blurb says. I would recommend going in blind honestly, that is basically what I did.

    Now the ending... If there is going to be a sequel then I would maybe be OK with it, but as it was left I wasn't that thrilled. I can't really say anything without giving something away, but the ending just seemed a little far-fetched to me, and it didn't give me the closure I needed either. I'm all for reading things that aren't completely realistic, but the ending just didn't fit with the rest of the book for me.

    Final Thought: I think

    will be a good one for mystery fans that don't need as much of a thriller aspect to their books. The ending was really the biggest flaw of this book in my opinion, but maybe there will be a second book that will answer some of my questions (I can only hope). It just didn't make sense to me and took away from the rest of the book for me. This book was very creepy though, and kept me up reading late into the night to figure out "whodunnit". I kind of got a feeling of what was to come, but I definitely didn't have it all figured out. I would also definitely read more from Green!

    3.5/5

    Anytime a books description references family secrets or old, unsolved cases I’m all in even before I start reading. The idea of a young woman who was abandoned at a church as an infant is just the type of storyline I enjoy and the addition of more current crimes just further piqued my interest. Twist of Faith was a steady build of intrigue and tension shrouded in a dark mystery that began decades before.

    Anytime a books description references family secrets or old, unsolved cases I’m all in even before I start reading. The idea of a young woman who was abandoned at a church as an infant is just the type of storyline I enjoy and the addition of more current crimes just further piqued my interest. Twist of Faith was a steady build of intrigue and tension shrouded in a dark mystery that began decades before.

    This wasn’t super fast paced like many typical thrillers and I would actually describe it as more of a straight up mystery and not really a thriller, though there is a dark edge and some suspenseful moments. There was a lot going on as far as the plot but only a fairly small cast of characters but that didn’t make it easier to figure out whodunnit. Green still managed to plant seeds of doubt, plenty of guessing and quite a bit of misdirection that made it hard to know what would happen next. In the end, I did predict the who but not too early on, so I still enjoyed it.

    This was a really solid mystery right up until the very end. I’m not sure if this will be a series, which would be fine, I love several series where the author leaves things open ended and perfectly set up for the next book. But the resolution here just didn’t fulfill me mostly because I didn’t feel like the full truth was revealed. I know that’s super vague, but spoilers. I’m picky about endings though, it may not bother every reader so keep that in mind! Other than that, I really liked this one and would still read another book by this author, especially if it’s a follow up so I can get some solid answers.

    Twist of Faith in three words: Skillful, Measured and Promising.

    I invested all that time? For an awful ending like that? So disappointing. I wish I could have those hours back.

    SPOILERS

    Okay. I have many questions.

    I’m supposed to believe that a 90lbs woman who is constantly drunk and wasted had the ability to kill 6 people.

    The point of her killing these people is to try to figure out who her mother was. So your saying that she had to kill all these people to find that out. But if she had a detective friend, he prolly could have figured that out for you without all the back around mess to figure out who these people where when she already knew enough to kill them.

    So you are saying that she was able to find out enough about what happened and who these people were, but didn’t have the brain power to figure out who her mother was?

    The beginning of this book didn’t match the ending. In the beginning for he book Ava is a drunken mess but somehow in the last 3 chapters she is composed and has this huge plan figured out?

    So confused. Nothing matches.

    I couldn't put it down and was ready for the ending to bring everything together and answer all my questions.. But I was sooo disappointed in the ending!! Not even like "I wish the ending had a better outcome bc everyone dies" type dissapointment, but like it didnt make sense to me. it left more questions than answers like did Ross really take in a sociopath kid?? Was that the 4 boys Karma?? Ava went from wanting to find her birth mom's name and find out who she really was, she was a drunk and n

Not even like "I wish the ending had a better outcome bc everyone dies" type dissapointment, but like it didnt make sense to me. it left more questions than answers like did Ross really take in a sociopath kid?? Was that the 4 boys Karma?? Ava went from wanting to find her birth mom's name and find out who she really was, she was a drunk and never ate... 85lbs soaking wet.. to then really being a serial killler. Some things in the book were unbelievable like Marie thought Ava was Claire?? Ava is clearly a hot mess and maybe at the end of it all she was a sociopath who gave the excuse of her birth mom name to kill. Bc she could of easily got her mom name...she worked for the courts and had friends who investigated crimes for a living, But none of this is explained and then when she sent her friends a Polaroid of Anais house... so now Ava is going after her friends??? I just couldn't get past that ending. seemed ridiculous.

    1.5 STARS

    To be fair, TWIST OF FAITH was my Amazon Prime free read of the month and a probably wouldn’t have chosen the book otherwise. I need to use spoilers to explain my rating.

    The blurb suggests twenty-three year old Ava Saunders as the protagonist. She narrates most of the early chapters until she’s “murdered” by her nun aunt and a priest (Insert rolling eye emoji). The remainder of the chapters are varying third person points of view, often confusing to readers.

    Ellen Green isn’t a bad writ

    Ellen Green isn’t a bad writer. Judging from the reviews, a lot of people enjoyed TWIST OF FAITH (or she has a lot of friends and large family). I rooted for Ava, but then she was “murdered”, though I never thought she was actually dead. Turns out she was only a serial killer who readers are to believe murdered at least six people to find out the name of her biological mother.

    I have no reason to recommend TWIST OF FAITH.
