What People are Saying about TWISTED

Crissy Crosby is back, and she’s growing up. 

TWISTED, the second book in the Roped series by DiAne Gates, begins with a bang and never slows down. Barely a week after Crissy defeats arch-rival Jodie Lee Fairgate in the rodeo arena, taking home the coveted Best All Round belt buckle, trouble with the Fairgates is popping like fireworks in a dry hay field. Not only Crissy, but also Mama and Daddy, her best friend Chun, and even her beloved Papa are caught up in the intrigue. Through it all, young readers watch Crissy learn first-hand about the real world: how deceptive appearances can be, how quickly events can turn from troublesome to dangerous, how hard it is for people to change and how healing it can be to forgive them when they do. Readers also see her grow in more subtle ways, finding a more mature relationship with her heavenly Father and learning to trust the One who will never deceive her, will protect her in any events she will ever encounter, will be her real strength for change, will always forgive her.

Author DiAne Gates is determined to meet her audience in the world they live in. She is known for creating characters her readers recognize, for telling her stories at a pace that holds their attention, and for building her fiction on the foundation of biblical Truth. Twisted attests to her success in each of those areas.
