A Strange Twist of Fate Review

One widow, one killer--who will die first?

Gutsy, grieving Anna is determined to find who murdered her husband. Hampered by agonizing loneliness, her obsessive-compulsive mother, and her over-controlling father, she defies convention and the law to investigate on her own. When she runs up against a handsome police detective who’s determined to save Anna from herself, she has to step up her rogue search for the killer before time, and dwindling leads, runs out.

While growing up, going to libraries felt like an adventure filled with mystery and wonder to Debra. The hushed tones invoked secrets, and the dusty, sometimes moldy scent of paper smelled like perfume. Leaving the library with just a single book never happened. Years later, her love of reading turned to passion for writing. Debra’s an award-winning artist who lives in southern Arizona where the average summer temperatures are truly hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk.

5 out of 5

When I received notice that I could read Author Debra Erfert's newest book I jumped at the chance, having read another of her books previously and loved it (see review here). I was not disappointing! It is little wonder that this book was chosen for the Kindle Scout program. The characters are believable, the locations and situations are well thought out and articulately described.
Debra is able to keep the story from being too convoluted making it easy to follow and the writing structure and poise keeps you fully invested.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick enjoyable read. This book is clean with no sex, and language. There is a small part dealing with drugs and the sale thereof. Also you see women in abusive relationships, but it is a warning to get out of one if anything. However neither of these scenes go into any real detail.

Top Ten List:

1)       I have an intense fear of flying, bad enough I need medication to even walk toward a plane.

2)       I have an unreasonable fear of heights. I’m pretty sure this has an impact on my fear of flying.

3)       I have two polydactyl cats. What’s a polydactyl, you ask? They’re adorable kitties with more than the normal amount of toes. Polly and Jack both have thumbs on their front paws. They’re also known as Hemmingway cats. He had a fascination with them. His home in the Florida Keys is a sanctuary for polydactyls. 

4)       I’m a multiple-award winning fine artist specializing in portraits. I received a drawing kit for Christmas when I was seven or eight years old, with a drawing pad, pencils, one of those silly gum erasers, and an awesome book that had step-by-step examples. I drew a little boy wearing a sombrero, and my mother used the side of a pencil and shaded it, making it pop off the paper. I used this memory in one of my books.

5)       This little known fact is one that my husband dislikes; I love bags—handbags, tote bags, and messenger bags with sayings on them. I can’t pass by a display of bags without Mike grabbing my elbow and hurrying me by them. The top shelf in my closet is solely for bag and purse storage. I’m pathetic. It could be worse, I suppose. I might have the same obsession for matching shoes with each bag.

6)       I’m married to a retired cop, who’s brother was a cop/latent identification expert, and who’s dad was a cop for 34 years, and now we have a son who’s in law enforcement. I'm never at a loss for experts when writing.  

7)       I was a volunteer with our local police department for several years. I rode with willing officers, went on calls with them. On occasion, I even helped in taking report information and traffic control. They didn’t let me carry a gun, although I did design their shirt patch.

8)       Readers would be surprised to know ... that I went to 13 different schools growing up. I actually went to 5 different high schools. We moved a lot. This is probably why I’m such an introvert. So if you see me at a conference or a book signing, say hi. You don’t know how much that would mean to me.

9)       The Best thing about writing is ... being transported to another adventure. I’m a discovery writer. For the most part, I follow my characters, and only gently guide them where I’d like them to go.

10)  When I am not writing, I like to .... do artwork and craft.
