Publisher's Summary

Avery Sparks is a master at controlling chaos - and she gets plenty of opportunities as fire chief and head of emergency management in her hometown of Chance, Nebraska. The only thing she can't seem to control are her feelings when she's around Jake Mitchell, the man who was her first everything the night of their high school graduation. But Jake was so quick to leave Chance - and Avery - behind that she swore she'd move on.

While Avery's job is to minimize drama, Jake embraces the chaos of an emergency. After enlisting in the Army National Guard, Jake became a nationally recognized leader in disaster recovery. Yet a life on the road has left him restless. So when a class-four tornado wreaks havoc on Chance, he's eager to return home - and to the woman never far from his mind.

Now, Avery and Jake must team up to help their hometown weather a siege of violent storms. But it's clear to them both that nature isn't the only force they'll have to reckon with. Will Avery and Jake's whirlwind love affair be an all-new disaster - or can they recover from their stormy past to build a future together?

    "I could not get past the performance."

    I think I eventually began to care about the story but the performance was bad and made it hard to listen to. I recommended reading the book.

    "This book makes me want to move to Chance!"

    The narrator was wonderful, she kept me captivated and brought the characters to life, beautifully.
    Avery Sparks is the fire chief for the city of Chance, Nebraska. She's an independent, courageous, and strong woman...until Jake Mitchell comes back to town. Jake was Avery's first everything and she simply can't deny the attraction every time he comes home in between working disaster recoveries across the nation.
    Avery is such a lovable character, especially for her whit, strength and love of community. Then there's Jake, who feels the need to fix everything and always rescue people, but how can he help the most stubborn and fiercely independent person in his life? The town faces another tornado, and the aftermath has both Avery and Jake realizing that maybe what has been light-hearted fun between them, isn't what they really want.
    I was kept enthralled by this book and it made my daily work commute fly by. I can't wait to read the next one in the series!

    "Very moving"

    I think Kate Rudd gave the best performance of an audiobook that I have ever heard. The book is good, but the plot had a couple of weak spots that bothered me. I almost missed those, though, because I was so caught up in the performance. Highly entertaining

    "First book. Good choice."
    If you could sum up Twisted Up in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyed this book very much. Story line wasn't complicated but kept you wanting more.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is VERY articulate. Sometimes computer articulate with her small words. You lose emotion, to me, when that happens. But her overall characters kept me interested and happy.


    Any additional comments?

    Will buy more from this author.

    "Fantastic start to a new series"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is the perfect start to this new series!!Avery is an awesome heroine, whose past is a bit heartbreaking, but has made her such a strong, successful woman. Which makes it crazy hard for Jake, who likes to be the hero in everything. The chemistry between these 2 is intense, and I love the bantering between them. Reading this book, I felt like I got an inside look at what happens during/after a tornado. The teamwork it takes to rebuild, the heartbreak they face, and the ideas that may emerge from it. Twisted Up had me laughing, crying, and falling in love with a new town and new characters by Erin Nicholas.The narrator has a way of pulling you in to the book, and I will definitely be checking out more of her work. You definitely need to get this audible!!
