"Unpredictable Webs" is the second novel that I've read in the Web Series. The first being "Webs of Fate". In that novel and in this one as well....Quinn, an international award-winning author, weaves together the plot with skill and expertise. Her knowledge of this fast paced, competitive world is evident in every word that she writes. She utilizes this knowledge to create an action packed, fictional work of art that will capture any reader's interest right at the onset.
Marnie Taylor, the almost sixteen year old rebellious twin to Callie, has been abducted at birth. Reunited with her birth family at the age of eight, she still holds strong ties to the only mother she knew up to that point, Erica Christonelli. She is determined to leave the comfortable home she now lives in and return to the Christonellis as soon as she is able to legally make that decision. Due to her unhappiness and jealousy, she holds the inaccurate idea that her twin sister Callie and younger sister Julianna, are more loved and cherished by their parents. This dissatisfaction in her young life is the stimulus for creating an on-line relationship with Brad/Neil. When they make plans to meet in person, the terror and subsequent story line unfolds as Neil's half brother, Rick, comes up with a kidnapping scheme. Ashleigh and Conrad Taylor show their love and devotion to all their children as they make every effort to comply to the ransom demands.
Up to this point, the reader is introduced to a vibrant cast of characters including Viviana De Mornay who is about to take Chicago's fashion industry by storm and her new main squeeze, sexy Italian Gino Cabello. Tony Wainwright, with his former criminal record, is making every effort to turn his life around but...when his past with the Taylors comes back to haunt him, he has every desire to prove his innocence in this latest abduction. There are many unpredictable twists and turns in this novel which certainly give credence to the aptly chosen title. "Unpredictable Webs" grabbed me from the first page to the last. The chapters are short, the plot is captivating, the characters are varied, and the story is well-written. In a nutshell, this novel is easy-to-read, hard to put down, and what I consider to be a "feel good" book because despite all the negative events, the Taylors prove that wealth and success don't always corrupt people. Ashleigh and Conrad clearly demostrate their morals and values by the example they set for others and their ability to forgive.
As said in my previous review...It is apparent that Quinn is no novice when it comes to her ability to create a story chock full of intrigue, jealousy, romance, hatred and revenge. The many twists and turns that captivate the reader and hold their interest is beyond description...I wanted to keep reading and reading and I was very disappointed to see this novel come to an end. To me, that spells a great book. Quinn made me want more...no reader can ask for more than that nor can any author!
