It was a great trip around the internet visiting some wonderful book blogs. I’m feeling blessed and grateful for these readers. I’ve been writing for many years, and this is by far the best round of reviews I’ve ever received. Thank you to Lori from Escape With a Good Book Tours for making this such an easy way to let people know about my book. Here are some of the reviews that have come in so far either from the tour or from Net Galley.
If you are looking for a trip back to the 1960s, you’ll be glad you picked up The Twist and Shout Murder. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Dot and the rest of these characters next.
Who’s ready for a trip to the past? Let’s go to the 60s to follow along with Dot. I give it 4/5 stars.

The Twist and Shout Murder has set this series off on a groovy start. Dot is just starting her real-world journey through the Swinging Sixties and I am excited to see where Ms. Trent takes her and the rest of the core characters next.

It’s a fast-paced story that left me wanting more. I hope there is a sequel and soon!
~Socrates’ Book Reviews
A quick and easy read that I found myself picking up after a long day to unwind. The characters are beautifully written and I came to love them within the first few pages and was rooting for them all the way to the end. At times I wanted to stop reading because I just wanted the experience to go on for longer.
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ~Nadine Rizvi (Reviewer)
The mystery is well written and intriguing. I enjoyed trying to untangle this investigation with Dot. She’s a wonderful, strong character. She’s surrounded by a fun, likeable supporting cast.

A good start for a new mystery series: compelling, entertaining, and well written.
Dot is an interesting characters, the historical background and the setting are interesting, the solid mystery kept me guessing.
Can’t wait to read another one in this series.

I’m looking forward to following Dot on her journey through the “Swinging Sixties” and, hopefully, beyond. Fun read with bits of the history of the time scattered throughout and a growing stronger every day main character. What’s not to like? ~June Price (Reviewer)
The Twist and Shout Murder was a fun and fast-paced read. I was able to imagine how each character looked and how they were dressed from the author’s writing. Little touches of the 60’s era were scattered throughout the story which was nice since I was born in 1960, however I would’ve like to experience more of a small town feel in the story. … look forward to reading the second book in the series to see where Dot is in her life and other series Teresa Trent has written. ~Sharon Lewis (Reviewer)
Dot is spunky and smart as a whip. She’s got gumption and just the right amount of whimsy to be the perfect “small town junior detective”.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and didn’t see the twist coming at all. ~Jessica Rush (Reviewer)
