A Twist of Fortune by Mike Martin
A Twist of Fortune by Mike Martin is a book about a police officer in the small town of Grand Bank. While it is the fourth book in a series, you can read it alone and still feel you’ve read a complete story with no loose ends and a good sense of closure. The main character, Sgt. Winston Windflower, is a kind and responsible man who is good at his job and respected by the community. He has a loving relationship with his girlfriend Sheila who is a beautiful woman, a good cook, and has a role of leadership in the town. She even ends up running for mayor. At work Sgt. Windflower and his team are investigating what at first appears to be a death from a car accident but turns out to be something much more complicated and sinister than a simple car crash.
This book is well written and is the kind of story that makes you feel good when you read it. The characters are well-developed and it has a strong plot. Though there is probably a little too much focus on food and coffee consumption, the story unfolds nicely and comes together well at the end. It has the perfect blend of showing an interesting daily life, the charm of a small town, the intrigue of police work, and the love shared between two people in a strong relationship. A Twist of Fortune is well-written, entertaining and interesting, and while at times it is a bit predictable, it doesn’t detract from the quality of the story. It’s a fun and heart-warming book that makes you want to read the rest of the series.
