Publisher's Summary

Cloistered as a faculty member at a small college, beautiful Hannah Jessett can almost forget her family heritage. Few know she's the niece of Elizabeth Nord, the legendary anthropologist who stunned the world with her revolutionary work, until her aunt dies, leaving Hannah in sole possession of her priceless unpublished journals.

But Hannah has other matters to contend with. Her brother's company is about to be destroyed by Gideon Cage, a wealthy entrepreneur with a notorious reputation in the boardroom, and the bedroom.

When she confronts Gideon, all she sees is a powerful man with a fast smile and soft eyes. Yet before she can catch her breath and really understand this puzzle of a man, her whole world is suddenly threatened: her brother, her aunt's legacy, her heart, and her life!

    "Okay"

    This is clearly one of Jayne's earlier works. No cell phones, computers, email, etc. in the story. It was a little cheezy and I never felt the connection between the main characters. Parts of it were difficult to listen to because it was so unrealistic. I used it while walking with my iPod and it was oaky for that.

    "Good Plot"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. Not a hugely complicated plot but kept me interested through the entire book. It was a nice balance between a mystery and a formula romance. Worth the time.

    "Twist of Fate"

    I really enjoyed this book. The story was engaging and actually had some depth. The characters were realistic and I liked them. The reader was very good. I got lost in the story and had no problem distiguishing characters. Her reading was at a very comfortable pace. I would listen to anything read by Nellie Chalfant.

    "Not Jaynes best."

    I picked this up on sale and am glad I didn't waste a whole creadit. The narrator was okay but the story not so much. I didn't care for the characters so that leaves me with a story that I was glad I was finished with.

    I love discovering new stories while driving or working in the barn, reading voraciously since I could walk. There is no genre, just magic

    Story
    "Story is great, overall it is a good read"
    Where does Twist of Fate rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Jane Ann Krentz novels have a twist and that brings them to an interesting level in novels as a whole giving you the additional depth. Overall it ranks somewhere in the middle for me.


    What other book might you compare Twist of Fate to and why?

    ..


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She did a good job, not sure she had as much to work with in this novel as she could have had with a richer story line.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not film quality.
