Irene Hannon's Latest Novel: Deceived

Title:  Deceived (A Private Justice Novel #3)
Author:  Irene Hannon
Pages:  416
Year:  2014
Publisher:  Revell
Deceived is a tale that focuses on Conner who is a partner in a PI firm in St Louis along with his college buddies Dev and Cal.  The other two novels of the series, Vanished & Trapped, introduced us to the three men who run the Phoenix firm along with their cases and romances.  I couldn’t wait to delve into the book, knowing how well the author pens a gripping suspense-filled story.  Each book is unique and allows readers to follow the main characters through life-changing events.
Conner has sworn off having any type of relationship and is brought face-to-face with a beautiful woman named Kate, who brings with her a very weird tale.  She has been widowed for three years and rebuilt her life, believing she lost her husband and son.  Now, on a last minute shopping trip, she is brought up short when a young boy is looks remarkably just like her son, though she knows that isn’t possible, is it?
Kate and Conner work very hard to keep their time together professional though it is extremely difficult when the electricity between them is so captivating.  The more the firm works to dig up the truth the more the danger element is elevated for anyone attempting to learn the truth about the man named Sanders along with his “adopted” son Todd.
Don’t be too surprised if hours pass by and all sense of time is lost as readers immerse themselves in the pages of this great book!  The action and adventure never seemed to really let up.  The plot has some twists and turns to keep the attention of any audience.  The romance that begins to blossom fairly rapidly is fun to read about, especially because of the attention the case needs, but the hearts of Kate and Conner make that a true chore.
Read the whole series as each story is engrossing and entertaining!
My rating is 5 stars.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
