Release Day for Twisted by DiAne Gates

Today, DiAne Gates' book Twisted will be released. This book is the continuing adventures of Crissy Crosby which began in Roped 


What begins as a nasty rodeo competition morphs into a ring of horse thieves, an uncle with a past, and consequences that span generations.

TWISTED, continues the journey of the Crosby and Fairgate families. Will these two Texas teens finally overcome the past and discover the future God has planned, or will they forever be trapped by the crimes of their fathers?



My Review:  Twisted opens right after Crissy Crosby’s rodeo championship. Unfortunately, she and her parents are stepping into something fiercer than a ride on a bucking bronco.  She’s about to face her classmate and rodeo competitor Jodie Lea’s father, Ed Fairgate.

The Fairgate family have a long and warped history. As Ed hovers on the edge of death, the family’s secrets are unraveled. Crissy, her parents, and her grandfather try to help the Fairgate family, but the Crosby’s property is damaged and horses stolen in the process. Crissy once again reaches out to Jodie Lea, but it may be too late for all of them.

This young adult novel by Ms. Gates is action packed from the very first page. It is hard to put down and indeed has a twisted story line. While quite entertaining to read, the book is packed with a strong message of faith and character building qualities.
