Review: Twisted Miracles
Twisted Miracles by A.J. Larrieu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was a paranormal homecoming book mixed with a bunch of mystery and romance. There’s an intricate world that’s build in this first installment that promises much more to come as the series progresses.
Cass is on the run from her past. She’s finally established herself and managed to mute her mindreading/telekinetic gifts enough to act “normal” until her ex, Shane, reappears one night with some awful news. Mina, Shane’s sister and Cass’s friend (who she also ran away from) is missing and in an act of desperation, Shane asks for Cass’s help. To try to find Mina (and ultimately solve a bigger mystery) Cass must confront her demons and open herself up to both her past and her untapped potential.
The love story is a bit broken and sad between Cass and Shane. There’s a little love triangle action, some misunderstandings, lots of paranormal action, and a solid foundation to grown on. To me, this story was less about romance and more about this unique “Shadowmind” community that Cass is exposed to. A lot of moving pieces aligned to push Cass towards her destiny in this book, but where will we go from here? I would like to see more of the other characters, too. Jackson and his crew got a brief intro before disappearing to hopefully be heard from in book 2. This was a solid beginning to what could be a really interesting new paranormal series.
