Twist of Faith is a book that immediately sets itself up to become an interesting mystery. The story is that of Ava, the adopted daughter of a woman who has recently passed away. Despite Ava’s requests, her adoptive mother has never given her any information on her origins other than to say that she had been left on the steps of the church and taken in. When her adoptive mother passes, Ava seizes the opportunity to filter through her belongings and finds a single Polaroid among the childhood belongings her mother had stored away. When she discovers that the couple who once lived at the house pictured in the Polaroid was brutally murdered five years ago, the story she’d been told for so long begins to unravel. The deeper she digs, the more strange, and dangerous, the story becomes.

I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy this book all that much. I’m usually not one for a mystery and tend to stick to my science fiction and fantasy. However, I found myself constantly wanting to read more to find out where the story was going. Green has a way with storytelling that pulled me into the story and kept me going right up through the end.

They say that every good mystery has a good plot twist or two to keep the reader guessing. You’ll find that and more in this book.  I truly enjoyed this book, and I think you will too. Even if, like me, you aren’t a regular mystery reader. You can pick it up at Amazon.
