I just finished Colleen Coble’s Mermaid Mood, the newest in her Sunset Cove series.

Due to two pending deadlines that have my head spinning, I’m not reviewing this book today. However, I have to say I was struck by the ending. I thought I had a good handle on the bad guy and was pleasantly surprised to find I didn’t. 

It got me to thinking about twists in novels. So, my question today is:

What was the last book you read that had a twist in the plot or solution you weren’t expecting, one so amazing you still can’t forget it? Please don’t give any spoilers. Just tell us why it affected you the way it did.

For writers: Is there a process you use to create an unexpected twist in your story or does it just seem to happen when you write?
