Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock

"Holly Cramer pulled to the curb of the condemned apartment building, her yellow taxi grinding gears and threatening to die. Though the sun hung bright overhead, the street was colorless, oppressive, with moldy, rotting houses and garbage festering in yards. Men loitered on the road up ahead in front of another boarded house. She shouldn't have accepted this fare..."

   I have loved Terri Blackstock books since I started reading Terri Blackstock books, and Twisted Innocence did not disappoint. I have trouble keeping my nose out of books anyway, but when I picked up Twisted Innocence it was nearly impossible. There were a few lulls in the story, but as a whole the book was, as I said before, nearly impossible to put down.

   Holly Cramer (one of the main characters in the story) comes from a background of deceit and hardship. Her preacher-father ran off with a woman from the church, choosing her over his family. Being a daddy's girl, she struggles with self worth because of this, as well as trusting people from the church. Terri Blackstock works through this with wisdom, showing readers God's love through Holly's story.

   I think the only major thing that I do not like about Twisted Innocence is that the ending wasn't quite as intense as some of Terri Blackstock's other books. It was good, just maybe not as exciting. 

I give Twisted Innocence 4 out of 5 stars.

Book Description
When Holly's secrets backfire, is the mess too big to unravel?

Holly Cramer has worked hard to keep the identity of her daughter's father a secret, shamed and embarrassed by the one-night stand. But when the police knock on her door searching for Creed Kershaw, she realizes his identity isn't as hidden as she thought. The fact that Creed is a person of interest in a recent drug-related murder only increases her humiliation.
When Holly's and Creed's paths cross, Holly is unsure whether to be terrified of him or trust him. His tenderness with their daughter makes her want to believe his story that he had nothing to do with the murder. Then she discovers that Creed has a connection to Leonard Miller-who killed both her sister's fiancé and her brother-in-law, and kidnapped her nephews-and things only become more complicated.
Will Creed lead them to the man who has plagued her family, or become another of his victims?
