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.

"What doesn't kill us makes us strong"

How would you cope if one of your identical twins was removed from the hospital at birth and appeared to disappear off the face of the earth? And, if you were reunited eight years later, how would you respond to the woman who had raised her - should the child be wrenched from all that she holds dear, to return to her birth parents?
These are the questions raised by Darlene Quinn in book 2 of the Webs Series.

There is a bit of a cast of thousands and I did eventually have to write myself a 'family' tree to explain who was who, but in brief: Ashley Taylor gives birth to Callie and Cassie, but only Callie returns home with them. Cassie is abducted by Mario Castanelli, to replace the baby his wife has recently lost. Although he knows this is totally wrong, he sees it as the only way to bring Erica out of her depression and back to him.

This book was very much sold as a kidnap story, so I wasn't prepared for all the corporate department store stuff. I tried very hard to get involved with this, I even re-wound a large chunk of the book to try and get a grasp on it, but a complete lack of experience with the corporate world, combined with a narrator who seemed to be in a race against time, I eventually gave up and concentrated on the characters and their social interactions.

I was given this audiobook through Audiobook Boom and Audible, in return for an honest review. I would have liked to have given a higher star rating, but I didn't enjoy the narrator, who was not only fast, but also rather strident and not good at male voices (her best voice was the sultry Vivianna). In addition, the business aspect of the narrative left me cold.

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.
