Book Review: Deceived by Irene Hannon

This third book in the Private Justice series follows the third member of the Phoenix Inc. private investigation team, Connor Sullivan. And the lady who comes to him for help seems to have a hopeless case. Kate Marshall has been grieving for 4 years after her husband and son were killed in a boating accident. But when she sees a boy who looks exactly like her son at the mall, she cannot shake the feeling that he is still alive even when all the evidence seems to point to the contrary. The further Connor digs into the case, the more it seems that it could be possible that Kate's son was not killed and that whoever has him will go to any length to keep him out of her hands.

I thought this was a good story and I finished it pretty quickly. While I do enjoy reading Hannon's books, I always have to laugh at how quickly the characters in the story are attracted to each other. I also thought it was so funny that for having a no dating the clients rule, EVERY partner ends up liking a client. I don't mind romance, but I think I might have enjoyed the mystery better without it.  Though this book could probably stand alone pretty well, I still recommend reading the first two books in the series just to get more background on the characters.

Thank you to Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
