TWISTED TRIANGLE is Ms. Potthoff’s debut outing and what a phenomenal job she has done.  I will tell you right off the bat that you will not be able to put this book down, or soon forget it.

Mattie Cameron and her husband Matt had a Sunday night ritual of going to a coffee shop for dinner. Even when they were separated because of Matt’s affair, they would sometimes meet there, but this Sunday night was life altering. As Matt walked out the door, he was gunned down; within a moment, Mattie’s life was turned upside down. Detective Brandeis of homicide informs Mattie that her husband was still having an affair, making Mattie a prime suspect with a perfect motive. Mattie must not only deal with her own feelings of grief; she must help her grown children get through this crisis even though she is questioning her own survival and sanity.

Potthoff’s character of Mattie is written with such detail you can feel her raw emotions as her world is being turned upside down. I used more than one Kleenex to get through this one.  The supporting characters are all very intriguing with underlying issues of their own. I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout this book until the surprising ending.  I look forward to seeing more from this author, and hopefully soon.
