Twisted Truth by Maria Macdonald was my first read by this author and I enjoyed it. This story has twists and turns that will keep you intrigued.
Isaac and Via have grown up together and have always been there for each other. They love each other, but as they grew older, circumstances have kept them apart. When Via is hurt, Isaac is quick to defend her, but ends up in prison. They spend years apart and Isaac has kept secrets from Via. To protect her, he is distant and cold to her.
So, begins Isaacs and Via’s journey. Their story was heartbreaking and frustrating. Both characters make choices that hurt them, but usually with good intentions. Isaac’s love for Via pushed him to protect her and make decisions without talking to her. Via is hurt and devastated with how Isaac is with her. Can Isaac and Via find a second chance at love or will secrets finally tear them apart?
I enjoyed Twisted Truth by Maria Macdonald and am looking forward to reading more of her books. Twisted Truth was a wild ride of emotions, heartbreak and angst. I will note this book deals with a slight taboo subject, but she does give a warning for readers who may have objections. Overall a good read that will keep you interested.
