Deceived by Irene Hannon

About the Book:

A grieving mother. A mysterious child. And a dedicated PI who's determined to solve the puzzle.
For three years, Kate Marshall has been mourning the loss of her husband and four-year-old son in a boating accident. But when she spots a familiar-looking child on a mall escalator, she's convinced it's her son. With police skeptical of her story, she turns to private investigator Connor Sullivan for help. As the former Secret Service agent digs into the case, the boating "accident" begins to look

increasingly suspicious. But if Kate's son is alive, someone is intent on keeping him hidden--and may 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 plotline that accelerates to an explosive finish.

My Thoughts:

Irene Hannon's newest release is exquisitely enjoyable.  I say that because her choice of topic and the situations she has crafted are a mother's (and grandmother's) worst nightmare come to life.

When my youngest daughter was three-years-old, she vanished at a busy shopping mall during December, right in the heart of the Christmas shopping season.  My world tilted sideways and I lost all ability to think or function.  Thankfully, she was found within 30 minutes...which is a whole other tale...

...but that caused me to taste the fear and loss Kate felt over her son.  Combine that with the grief of losing your spouse....then have everything you thought was true collide with a new reality, and you'll get a taste of what's in store for readers of "Deceived".

Irene writes with such realistic grit and exposes a side of life we rarely encounter in our every day lives.  But someone somewhere is living out the pages of her gripping stories, which makes the tale all the more gripping.

I've read most if not all of Irene's novels, and I truly believe this is her best and most intense yet.  If she ratchets up the tension any more in future books, I'll have to schedule an appointment with a chiropractor to get the knots out of my muscles after reading!

My thanks to my friends at Revell Publishing for my complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.  If you're searching for intense suspense that leaves you with a sense of true hope by the final page, then you must not miss out on "Deceived".

And do yourself a huge favor...get the rest of Irene's books, too!

Happy Reading!
