A thrilling tale of suspense!
Gosh, what an EXCITING story! Deceived was so hard to put down. I couldn't believe it, people had the audacity to interrupt me to do things around the house. They actually thought I should poke my nose out of my book and back into the real world. Crazy I know.
I read the back cover and just had to read it. From the very first page Irene Hannon had me hooked. And as the story progressed in only got more engrossing. I read a lot of suspense novels and Deceived delivered a plotline that I've never come across before. The idea that a woman might possibly see her dead son, very much alive, three years and hundreds of miles from where he was supposed to have drowned, was incredible and very fascinating.
I liked how Irene Hannon wrote the story from the perspective of several of the characters. I have read a number of similar-style books so there wasn't much confusion when the perspective changed, it only made the story more interesting and rounded.
One of my favorite book quotes that I've read this year came from Deceived. ... As for coincidences I like that old saying about them being small miracles in which God chooses to remain anonymous. Isn't it so true?
Deceived is really good with plenty of suspense, lots of danger, and some romance slipped in to make it even better. Irene Hannon seriously knows how to keep a reader glued to the page, Deceived is a story you definitely won't want to miss.
