I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
When someone tells you who you are, do you believe them?
The first question the cops asked me was if anything out of the ordinary happened to me lately.
When I woke up this morning in the room of a mental institution I couldn’t remember a thing – not my name nor how I got there. Not how I left or how I ended up in that interrogation room.
The only thing I knew came from the contents inside my bag. A wallet, a student ID, a key that opened an unknown door, and two notebooks.
They tell me my name. It matches my IDs.
They tell me my story. I shut my eyes and try to piece it together, but can’t.
They put me back in the car and drop me off in front of a mansion they call The Manor and I discover what the mysterious key in my backpack opens the front door, and just as quickly wish I’d never unlocked it at all.
They tell me why they picked me up in the first place. They thought I was my sister. My brain stays stuck there. I try to rewind and fast-forward, as if my memories were on a videotape, but it’s no use. I can’t recall having a sister.

I don’t know where to start this review! I was just blown away by Twisted Circles! This book is so fresh and had me guessing until the end!
By the way, did you know that Twisted Circles is an amnesia trope? Yep! Eva can’t remember what happened to her before she woke up on Sunday. She can’t remember what happened to her during the weekend, which starts the mystery in this book.
I really love how Claire Contreras structured this book. Everything is slowly revealed as Eva is trying to solve the mystery of her sister. While the romance here is not the main focus of the book, I love that there is more romantic tension between Adam and Eva. I felt that their romance is more believable than the romance in Half-Truths.
Twisted Circles really got me thinking about secret societies. It was creepy and intriguing at the same time to know that there are real secret societies with a lot of power today.
If you want an edge-of-the-seat thriller, with a good mystery, I highly recommend Claire Contreras’ Twisted Circles.
