In “Deceived” by Irene Hannon we meet Kate Marshall. As the story opens Kate faces the hardest thing in her life; losing her husband and four year old son. In the three years since losing them she has moved from New York to St. Louis in hope of a fresh start. On a trip to the mall she spots a young boy who looks like she would imagine her son to look at seven years old and he says something she only heard her son say. When she calls his name she is convinced the boy is her lost son, Kevin. She hires a private investigator, Connor Sullivan, to track the boy down. It seems to him that it may be a wild goose chase but he takes the case. The further he digs he starts to wonder if maybe Kate is right. What Kate thought was a horrible accident has turned into a murder and kidnapping. The more Connor uncovers the more convinced he is that Kate’s life may be in jeopardy. Will Connor be able to rescue Kate and Kevin before it’s too late?
This book will pull you in from the start and keep you turning the pages until the end. This is a very well written book with enough mystery and romance to keep you wanting to know what will happen next. In this book we see how Kate and Connor rely on God to show them the right course to take not only in the investigation but in their personal relationship as well. This is the third book in the Private Justice series but it can be read as a standalone. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Revell.
