About the Book

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 Review

I received a free copy of this book.

Deceived is romantic suspense at its best. It grabbed my interest from the beginning when Kate Marshall thought she saw her dead son in a mall. Since the police don’t believe her, she hires a P.I., Connor Sullivan, and the sexual tension between them is almost palpable.

The characters are complex. Poor Kate has been through so much and now her world has been turned upside down. Connor, in m opinion, is just what she needs to help her get through this rough time.

This story is fast paced, full of suspense, and has several twists. I plan on reading the first two books in this series when I get a chance.
