Will a wager against her future steal her chance at true love?

Dr. Adelina Roseland has worked ten years in research as an accent reduction specialist to attain her dream job. But a secret wager to transform Appalachian cattle farmer Reese Mitchell into corporate material challenges Adelina in ways she never expected, threatening her new position.

For one, Adelina didn’t plan for the faith and friction of Reese, or the unexpected influence of his chaotic family. Now, drawn into a culture she’d tried to forget, Adelina finds the warmth of family, the hope of faith, and the joy of love melting away the deep wounds of her past.

But when Reese discovers that he’s a pawn in her climb up the academic ladder, will he forgive Adelina s deceit or will their miscommunication end in two broken lives? Love does not have an accent....


As a native of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Pepper Basham enjoys sprinkling her Appalachian culture into her fiction writing. She is an award-winning author of contemporary and historical romances, mom of five, speech-language pathologist, and a lover of chocolate. She resides in Asheville, North Carolina with her family. You can learn more about her at her website or connect on Facebook or Twitter.


Pepper Basham's debut novel completely captivated me last year, and this novel proves she is as adept in the contemporary genre as she is writing historical fiction. Drawing from her own Appalachian upbringing and her career as a speech-language pathologist, Basham puts a fun spin on the premise of Pygmalion/My Fair Lady (sans the singing!) in this delightful clash of cultures. Plenty of laugh-out-loud moments fill these pages along with tender and touching scenes, as well--not to mention the cringe-inducing incidents which occur when hubris and humility collide! Spunky and bright with a solid faith message, A Twist of Faith charmed me. I'm eagerly anticipating my return to Mitchell's Crossroads in future books in this series.
