Twisted Fate | Book Review + Giveaway


Laina Jorden’s Shakespeare-themed Staten Island bookstore is on the brink of failure. She can barely drag herself out of bed before lunch. She rarely picks up after herself, and she’s lost her belief in fate ever since her childhood sweetheart moved away, leaving her broken-hearted. Any man she meets is quickly kicked to the curb; they can’t compare to Jared.

But when Laina’s zany roommate forces her to attend his cousin’s wedding, she finds herself walking down the aisle as an emergency bridesmaid in a dress meant for a woman nine months pregnant. Even after drinking too much and setting her dress on fire, Laina manages to catch Mason’s eye. But a few months later, while she’s meeting his family in the Bahamas, Laina realizes that Mason’s stepbrother, JP, is none other than her old flame Jared. Is it too late to untangle the web she’s twisted in? Determined to find true happiness, Laina must uncover secrets and balance friendship against love as she fights to regain her destiny.

With a struggling Shakespeare-themed bookstore and a gaping hole left by her childhood sweetheart that no other guy seems able to fill, Laina Jorden’s life is primed for some rom-com mishaps. A wedding she attends for the sake of her roommate begins her comedic trajectory that spurs her to consider friendship, love, and her destiny.

Dana Miller’s Twisted Fate is a lighthearted, delightful read—with some fun Shakespearean energy. It balances the humorous moments with more touching, emotional ones well, and I enjoyed following the characters throughout them all.

Definitely check out Twisted Fate if you need an entertaining contemporary romance! 


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Dana Miller graduated from Wilkes University with an MFA in creative writing, concentrating in fiction and screenwriting.

Though she grew up in Staten Island, NY, she fell in love with Pennsylvania while attending graduate school. Surrounded by creativity, she immediately knew she wanted to move to the area. Shortly thereafter, she met her fiancé, and decided to put down her roots.
