Twisted Webs

Twisted Webs - Darlene Quinn 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. With the same drama, tension, and high style that hooked readers of Webs of Power, the author invites loyal fans and readers new to the series to step into this provocative sequel set in the 1990s. There is plenty going on to keep them turning pages 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 the pages of 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.

My 2 cents:

The story was intense, suspenseful, had lots of twists and lots of different emotions though out the book. It was not a bad read. It was a sequel to Webs of Power, that I have not read. You do not have to read it though to follow along. The author did a good job bring some information to this story to keep you up to date. I do not know what I would do in their situation it was a happy ending all around. The story spans over 8 years and the pace was good.
