Special Feature: Five Quick Questions with Claire Contreras

We’ve shared our love of Romantic Suspense before—check out our awesome Read in Covers Round-Up on that very trope—so we were psyched when New York Times Bestselling Author Claire Contreras released Twisted Circles earlier this month. The second standalone book in her Secret Society series, Twisted Circles has been described by readers as “brilliant”, “completely captivating”, and “mind blowing.” High praise indeed!

But if that’s not quite enough to convince you that you need this book in your life, never fear. We aren’t going to send a Secret Society your way, but we DID sit down with Claire to ask five quick questions—just enough to get into the mind that created this mysterious world . . .

Read on for more!



From New York Times Bestselling author Claire Contreras comes a new mysterious, sexy, STANDALONE secret society novel . . .

When someone tells you who you are, do you believe them?

The first question the cops asked me was if anything out of the ordinary happened to me lately.

When I woke up this morning in the room of a mental institution I couldn’t remember a thing – not my name nor how I got there. Not how I left or how I ended up in that interrogation room.

The only thing I knew came from the contents inside my bag. A wallet, a student ID, a key that opened an unknown door, and two notebooks.

They tell me my name. It matches my IDs.

They tell me my story. I shut my eyes and try to piece it together, but can’t.

They tell me why they picked me up in the first place. They thought I was my sister. My brain stays stuck there. I try to rewind and fast-forward, as if my memories were on a videotape, but it’s no use. I can’t recall having a sister.

They put me back in the car and drop me off in front of a mansion they call The Manor and I discover that the mysterious key in my backpack opens the front door, and just as quickly wish I’d never unlocked it at all.

This is a 100% standalone in the world as Half Truths.


1. Describe Twisted Circles in five or less words.

Suspenseful, thrilling, consuming, page-turner.

2. Do you have a favorite line or scene from Twisted Circles?

I think my favorite is the first initiation scene.

3. Twisted Circles is a romantic suspense—what’s your favorite romantic suspense book?

Oohh good question! Anything by Anne Stuart.

4. Would you join a Secret Society?

Haha. Probably.

5. Will there be more Secret Society books?

Yes! Definitely one more, but who knows. I love writing them so much that I wouldn’t mind continuing them forever 🙂 (Editor’s note: we wouldn’t mind Claire continuing them forever either.)


The first book in the Secret Society series, Half-Truths, is also available. And although Twisted Circles can be read standalone, you’d be missing something amazing if you skipped this one!


Claire has spoiled us with a bunch of incredible Bites, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t encourage you to get yourself over to Book+Main Bites and follow her. And while we might be a lot of things, we are most definitely not remiss . . .
