‘Twisted Truth’ by bestselling author Melinda Leigh is the first book in the new Rogue Justice series. Well written, fast read, not easy to put down. It has Mystery, Suspense, Emotional drama, and Romance. Melinda Leigh has balanced all genres well in these Rogue River novellas.
‘Twisted Truth’ is packed with action and suspense & told in alternating chapters from Seth and Carly's points of view. Homicides in the sleepy town of Solitude, while in the middle of a storm, call out Seth to investigate. Findings on the scene brought his wife, Carly, In on the case. Seth is great at his job and is good at focusing on cases and being an information hound. Carly has been struggling since a case went sideways recently and is dealing with grief.
The mystery aspect of the story was well done which is something I expect from a Melinda Leigh book. There were unexpected twists and turns, angst and sweet moments. The different threads of the case tied together very well and the investigation moved along at a good pace.
This is a fantastic story with characters that you love, humour, angst, mystery, suspense, intriguing twists and turns that will capture you till the very end. A terrific beginning to this chilling new series.
