Title: Deceived (A Private Justice Novel #3)
Author: Irene Hannon
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.
