Publisher's Summary

A baby girl is stolen, and tightly woven webs of deception encase her and two families for eight traumatic years. The stunningly beautiful and elegant Ashleigh Taylor gives birth to twin daughters while she's in Long Beach visiting her father figure, Charles Stuart, the founder of Bentley's Royale. Hours later, a parent's worst nightmare occurs: Cassie is kidnapped.
Twisted Webs unravels the mystery of the abduction of Callie's identical twin. There is plenty going on all the way to the end. With candor and sensitivity, Darlene Quinn probes the shock and despair, the anger and frustration of parents suddenly missing a child and the long-term effects on a family wrestling with these emotions. Each of the novel's complementary storylines - Paige Toddman's reunion with her mother, Viviana De Mornay's secret, and others - ties to the redemptive theme of motherhood.
Suspense electrifies each short, fast-paced chapter. Could Caroline Stuart have hired someone to kidnap the infant because of her deranged jealousy and desire for the Taylor family to suffer pain, as she does? Is the Jordon's department store executive a suspect because of personal grief? The abducted twin's father hires a deeply empathetic detective to answer those and many other questions that arise during her disappearance - at the close of which the author has crafted a knockout ending.

Very good listen!

I have listened to a few books by his author and narrator and I really like them. This book is a standalone listen, yet part of a series with regards to some characters. I love how the author is able to put some great twists in the story. Having worked retail in some large department stores, I was intrigued with the background of the book. The narrator was able to put so much emotion into her performance. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and or publisher.

Great author and Great Book - makes you think

I had absolutely no idea that this was a sequel until someone recently told me. It is a standalone book to me and you do not need to read the first book. I didn’t and haven’t.

The main focus of the book is the abduction of a twin baby girl from the hospital right after her birth. It focuses on the lives of all of the characters and how the abduction affects their lives.

Loved the action and “twists” but I did feel the ending was a bit trite. That said, I would still recommend it. The book was worth the time and price.

If a child is kidnapped, I have always felt contempt for the kidnapper. This books and it’s “twists” makes you think twice about being judgmental. The characters were shown from very different points of view.

I hated to put the book down but was grateful for the short chapters so that I could. It is a page turner!!!

This is a gifted story teller/author. I heartily recommend “Twisted Webs”.
*** Spoilers – stop reading here***




Did feel the ending was a little too much like the plot of a 70’s movie about twins.
