Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis:


For three years, Kate Marshall has been grieving the loss of her husband and their four-year-old son in a boating accident. But when she spots a familiar-looking child on an escalator in the mall, she is convinced it is the son she thought was dead. With police skeptical of her story, she turns to private investigator Connor Sullivan. The former Secret Service agent is dubious but agrees to investigate. Digging into the case he discovers that the incident may have been no accident at all. But if Kate's son is alive, someone is intent on keeping him hidden--and may be willing to go to lethal lengths to protect a sinister secret. 


As Irene Hannon's many fans have come to expect, "Deceived "is filled with complex characters, unexpected twists, and a riveting plot line that accelerates to an explosive finish. 


My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

Disclaimers: I received an ebook of this novel from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review and opinion.

My Synopsis: Kate is still battling to overcome the grief of losing her husband and son. But when she believes she sees her son in a mall, everything she thought she knew starts unraveling at the seems.


She's hesitant to go to the PI to ask for help, but sees no other alternative. Connor is just as hesitant to accept the case but agrees to take it on. What neither of them expected to find was the undeniable chemistry between them or the secrets that somebody is determined to keep just thata secret. 

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: I adore Irene Hannon. I think I own every suspense novel she has ever written. Hannon is an incredible author and so when I was given the opportunity to read this novel, I jumped at the chance.

This book does not disappoint. The characters are beautifully developed, the writing compelling, and of course the book well-researched. I found myself staying up way too late reading this book simply because I couldn't put the book down. 

This book is amazing in one word. I would recommend this to anybody who loved romance or suspense. You won't be disappointed. 

So why 4 stars?  I always have such high expectations for Irene Hannon because like I said earlier I adore her. This book did not disappoint. It was, however, not my favorite one by her. I give it a solid 4 stars because it definitely stood above the crowd and I definitely want to go buy the book. It just missed that extra something to be a 5. 

In Summary: Hannon's lastest novel Deceived is a spell-binding read that readers will not want to miss. A fast-paced novel that will leave you turning the pages faster and faster. 

Warnings/Side-notes: No concerns. I would recommend this book to readers of any age. 

The Wrap-up:  I honestly am so excited to see what Hannon comes up with next. I for one will be buying it. I love this author so much.

Love,
