    Great Book of Twists and Turns

    The book had great twists and turns. A book of lies, lust, revenge, love, and drama. It left you wondering, as you were reading, how the book was going to end. When it did end, you feel the need for an epilogue to bring closure to the book.

    Tj you wrote a very good novel, kept me guessing and wanting more, read it in 5 hours, love it! Definitely needs to become a movie on lifetime or theatre, either way someone needs to produce it.
