Deceived by Irene Hannon – A Book Review
Irene Hannon is not a new author, but she is a new-to-me author. I will be looking for more of her books in the future. Deceived is the third book in her Private Justice series, so books one and two in the series would be a good place for me to go next, although this book read well as a stand-alone novel. It was very easy to follow without having the benefit of having read the first two.
Someone recently asked on Facebook if it was even possible for Irene Hannon to write a bad book. Well, if Deceived is any indication, the answer is a resounding NO!!! The blurb on the back leads readers unfamiliar with Hannon’s writing thinking the book will follow a very predictable storyline, but the additional comment, one that I didn’t attend to prior to reading the book, which referred to unexpected twists and a riveting plotline was quite accurate. Repeatedly I found myself questioning which way the author was going to go, and leaving many things undone as I was compelled to read on and find out.
Kate Marshall is finally turning her life back on again after losing both her husband and son in a boating accident. She has moved halfway across the country for a fresh start, when a chance encounter with a familiar-looking boy asking for a poppysicle turned her life upside down. She turns to former Secret Service agent turned private investigator, Connor Sullivan, to help her decide is she is going crazy or if the impossible might just be possible. On the path to find the answer help comes from unexpected sources, and danger increases as does hope. Kate exemplifies what it means to trust and respect God’s sovereignty even when there is the possibility that it might contradict something about which you are passionate.I thank Revell Publishers and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for providing Deceived for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own.
