If you usually read romance, this is a good crossover book from romance to mystery/thriller.
Good read. Lots of twists and turns.
This was a very good suspense/romance story with a nice twist. Highly recommend.
Abridged edition. Read by Allison Janey (who played the press secretary on West Wing) A great audiobook. The kind that caused me to take the long way home to get to listen to a bit more on my drive.
Fabulous story line. A real page-turner. Gread read!
From the stunning Colorado mountains to the glitz of the movie-star world, ILLUSIONS it a finely crafted, thrilling novel. Janet Dailey at her romantic, storytelling best.
Delaney Wescott has been hurt deeply by a cowboy, so she has sworn not to let anyone else hurt her that way again and she meets the cowboy again in his hometown.
This is the first book I have read by this author. It is a mystery that leaves you guessing until the very end of the book. I enjoyed it and will read more by this author.
Delaney Westcott is a beautiful career woman in a man's world.Owner and chief asset of a personal security business-where she guards the rich and famous from the unwanted attention of friends and enemies-she can take care of herself.Except for the one time she didn't:when she fell headlong for a handsome cowboy Jared McCallister,a man she couldn't have.
Delaney Wescott, a security expert, is summoned to protect rock star Lucas Wayne after a deranged former lover, singer-actress Rino Cole, tries to shoot him. Protection includes preparing Lucas' home in Aspen, Colorado, for round-the-clock surveillance. While in Aspen, Delaney runs into her former lover, Jared, and is drawn to him even though he betrayed her many years ago. Lucas is also pressuring Delaney for a more intimate relationship, and Delaney's partner Riley is maneuvering to cut both men out of her life. When a shooting at Lucas' estate lands Delaney in jail for murder, the complicated tangle of truth and deception surrounding the case begins to unravel. As Delaney struggles to clear her name and choose the right man for her, persistent investigation leads to a detailed plot to use Delaney as a scapegoat, with ties reaching far into her past. Dailey is the author of more than 90 romance novels; several of her recent ones have been best-sellers. Careful writing and brilliant characterizations create an engrossing read, marred only by the disappearance of a potentially strong plot twist early in the book. Highly recommended.

A good book to read on a long winters ight.
First book I've read by this author. Good story, but note: 99.99 % is from heroine's pov. Also pretty light on the romance. Didn't play out the way I expected it to. An easy read (though at times not terribly engaging).
