Editorial Reviews

Review

FOUR STARS! This nicely inventive romance brings alive the America of the past, including the Battle of New Orleans. The heroine's absorption into the past is handled well, and the gradual acceptance of her change quite believable. --Susan Mobley, RT BOOK REVIEWS

"...a superbly written romantic love tale. Ms. Nutt has vividly and emotionally wrote the plot and characters in a way that the reader will become enveloped, captivated and entranced in the story." --TCM Reviews

A Gem of a Tale. The romance between Keldon and Arianna is delightful. The storyline was exciting and entertaining. I particularly think it is a stroke of genius placing a Scottish pirate in the American south.
--Bonnie-Lass, Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance

From the Author

A Twist of Fate was previously published with Tease Publishing LLC in 2008 for their Dark Tarot Line. Upon receiving my rights back after the contract was fulfilled, I decided to release the tale again through Amazon KDP select program and Createspace. It has been an interesting venture. 
Please note, I still work with Tease Publishing LLC and you can find my other works there. Thank you readers for you continued support throughout the years.

It was very interesting from the very beginning and kept my interest until the end.

I would recommend this story if you are interested in American History as She did a wonderful job of weaving a fictional story around the events of the war of 1812.
Annie McShane
As a Scot I have to wonder where the Scots dialect/spelling of Keldon's speech came from, though- I was, perhaps, not meant to find it amusing...but I DID!

This book just SOUNDED interesting, so of course, while it was free, I decided to check it out. What a bargain! I started reading it and I had to finish it today. Ok, I read very fast and probably could read 3-4 novels a day if I didn't have children, volunteer and work part-time.

Arriana wakes up and is suddenly someone else. Her memories don't match, she knows things she shouldn't. She spends most of the novel realizing that Annabelle (the person she suddenly becomes) isn't very nice. I like the fact that she didn't realize she'd traveled through time. She thinks she has amnesia and her husband Keldon thinks that the bang on the head suddenly gave her second sight.

Keldon doesn't know what to think and he keeps waiting for her to recover her memory and realize that she isn't Arriana anymore and he's falling in love with Arriana. But there are odd things about his wife Annabelle that he can't explain, like she insists her name is Arriana. She suddenly sings (she used to screech) and she can play a harpsichord, plus suddenly, she's nice!

I love how she doesn't change history but just makes it happen again, like it did. I like how Karen Michelle Nutt added real people and historical facts to the story, the story just worked and it didn't have that Deus ex machina feel where suddenly everything is made better by some future knowledge used in a timely manner or her return to the future. Good story!

I got this book under the top 100 free. I am so glad I did. It was highly entertaining for me and I also found myself laughing out loud a few times. This is the first book of this author but willnot be my last. I would have paid for it.

A Twist of Fate by Karen Michelle Nutt
I loved the idea that someone sent back in time did not share the same name as her 'swap'. Any confusion was solved since the characters of the women were chalk and cheese; the similarity of their names easy to absorb. The haziness of Arianna's memory is just right for me. Although I did learn some of the history a very long time ago it was nice to have the detail refreshed for me, so much that if I had time I'd go and re read it all. As a Scot I have to wonder where the Scots dialect/spelling of Keldon's speech came from, though- I was, perhaps, not meant to find it amusing...but I DID! I can just imagine what Keldon looked like...

I also, normally dislike time travel romance as a general rule. This book however was a wonderful surprise!! I enjoyed the main character, Arianna, and the hero was just the right amount of dangerous pirate, tormented and hurting soul and forgiving husband that you cannot help but fall in love with him! I also got this book while on the free list and I am SO glad that I did! I read it in one day it was so great! I will admit that some of the areas in the book are VERY contrived but for fluff reading, I think that you can forgive that! No noticeable grammar errors and the only formatting issue I was was VERY occasionally the first line in a paragraph would be very stretched out (I have the kindle 3 keyboard) but that wasn't a big deal in the reading experience at all. All in all I would highly suggest this book!

Could not put it down....awesome!!!! I was entranced from the first page to the last. I love this type of romance from present day to 19th century era where time travel is involved

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very interesting from the very beginning and kept my interest until the end.
I kept jumping to conclusions with my own ending and was not disappointed with the way the story ended.
I highly recommend this book.

The main problem I had with this book was all the words that were just, well, wrong. I hate to get into a story and as I am reading it a word jumps out that makes no sense. In this book I came across "riveted" which was repeatedly used incorrectly, then just plain wrong. Pain cannot rivet up and down. Then there was "wither". Also, noses were "snubbed". I don't know how that happens. Then there were the details (or threads) that were left hanging. Let's see-the huge sapphire wedding ring that no one ever noticed was missing. The "first time" there was pain and blood and neither one thought anything about it-and the woman came from the present? I know it set up a conflict, but really? Then there was the whopper-the whole thing takes place in 1814. The letter of marque is dated 1812? How did that happen? Was the president sitting on it for two years? Why she could remember some things and not other things was a little irritating, as were the present day references that went nowhere. Sorry. Little things like that that make me stop reading and look things up take away from the whole experience. Otherwise, it was an okay read. A little editing would make it better.

I found A Twist of Fate to be a captivating story. Just wish I could be her! Ok, since that isn't going to happen, it would be awesome if there could be a sequel where the characters story picked up and continued. I'll be waiting....
