Two loves; two points of view; and one mystery make up Roni Teson's wonderful story of mystery and romance. Beatrice (Bea) Malcolm and Lucas Drake fall in love; and their steamy romance is caught on tape, and broadcast on YouTube. Bea's father is wanted by the FBI for espionage, but the real truth is far more complicated; and that truth affects their burgeoning romance. Roni Teson weaves the mystery and the romance in a very compelling way that makes this a must read.The plot is intricate and not very predictable. My recommendation--buy the book.Reviewed by Clark for Palmetto Review
Beatrice Malcom's life is complicated, with her mom dead and her dad on the Most Wanted list of the FBI. She doesn't need more complications, but then she meets Luke Drake and falls in love. It seems that her dad's situation has more to do with her than she realized. Roni Teson has created a complicated plot in Twist
. The last part made me teary and crave more of the story. The last chapter was really good, but the epilogue was the best part.

is a contemporary thriller written by Roni Teson, starts out as a 'love at first sight' story, but it is so much more than that. The story is narrated alternately by Bea and Lucas as they try to navigate the forces arrayed against them.
Teson is a masterful storyteller who weaves high technology, intrigue, and advanced medical research into this modern-day tale of star-crossed lovers. I got so involved in their stories that I couldn't put the book down. Twist is a marvelous story and is highly recommended.

Roni Teson has written a very absorbing story and created two very compelling, if not exactly likable, characters in its twin narrators, Bea and Lucas. I was intrigued by the multi-layered story from its first page and Teson has a very clear and readable style which draws you in and keeps you hooked throughout. Twist,
has both an original premise and, aptly, many dizzying plot twists. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys mysteries and something a little bit different!

About the Author
Roni Teson's dream to become an author was realized after she was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and wrote her first novel, Heaven or Hell, which received an award at the 2013 Reader's Favorite International Book Awards and the 2013 Los Angeles Book Festival.
A consummate believer in the declaration that all things happen for a reason, when Roni went into complete remission her passion to write intensified along with her imagination. Her writing that was once a part of her cancer recovery became an integral part of her daily life.
Twist, her most recent novel is a suspense driven love story that is delivered through a cast of characters who leap off the pages and stay in your heart long after the last page has been turned.
