    When Kates husband drowned in a boating accident and her four year olds body is never found, her world collapses and she sinks into depression, resorting to pills to take away the pain. Now, three years later, she has gotten her life back on track, moved to a new city, and has a counseling job helping women to struggle. Her ordered world suddenly crashes when she spots a boy the age of her son using expressions which were unique to him. Could it possibly be her son, Kevin? She knows she will regret it if she does not pursue some answers. With Mall Security and the police department turning her down, she turns to the Phoenix Private Investigator Firm. Connor, a former Secret Service Agent, takes her case. Even though he has very low expectations for a positive outcome, he is drawn to Kate. As the two pursue new leads, it looks that there may be a real possibility that Todd is really Kevin. But, Todd has a very loving and protective father who is determined to keep him no matter what the cost.

    This is the third book in Irene Hannons Private Justice series. This is a great mystery that you wont be able to put down until you have finished the last page. Her books are perfect for those who love a good mystery but dont want the graphic details or slimy relationships. The reader quickly comes to feel real empathy for this bereft mother, charmed by the little boy, enthralled by a real hero, worried for the abused wife, and sorrowed for a very lost man. The minor characters add the right sprinkling of humor to a tense tale.

    I have often thought that the worst part of a disappearance (like a missing person) is not knowing what happened to them. In this book Irene takes that with a twist and a woman that lost her husband and son in a "boating accident" thinks that she knows what happened... except her son's body was never found. And then one day at the mall... a word... a glance... a boy... and now she can't sleep... is it her son?!? Is he still alive?!? Is she crazy?

    This is an intriguing scenario that while riddled with lots of "what are the odds" kind of moments, is incredibly well written and played out. For a long time you aren't even sure if there is really a "bad guy" or not, but then when things start spiraling to the finish it is a wild ride that you will be glad you went on. I love Irene Hannon's books - she is one of my favorite mystery/suspense writers!

    Before peace can be restored, whirlwinds waft from old wounds and just when you hope relief is in reachGrippingly woven through this tale are the heart-warming and rending ties between Child & Mother(Parent).Without the kismet romantic sparks, the tragedies of this storyline would be unbearable. The light relief is needed.

    The positive handling of tragedy and crisis is a strong theme, depicting toeholds on the sheer cliff of grief.

    The death of her husband and young son in a boating accident three years earlier had plummeted Kate Marshall into a depression, Unable to understand why her son's body is never found but his little life jacket is found near the overturned boat, she numbs her pain with too many pills. Finally, able to pull herself up and rebuild her life as a career counselor to abused women, Kate moves from New York to St. Louis.New friends and a new church help her begin again, until the day she hears a young boy's voice on the escalator and sees straw blond hair so like her own.. In an instant she calls Kevin's name and the boy turns toward her voice, and then disappears into a crowded store hustled along with by the man at his side. While mall security and local police assume Kate is just seeing what she'd like to believe is her son, the still grieving mother cannot let the sighting go.

    Connor Sullivan, former Secret Service agent turned PI, doesn't seem much merit in Kate's case, but her earnest plea and her beauty cause him to start a preliminary investigation. Soon it appears Kate might be right, her son might be alive. But how would a boating accident in upper New York state end with the little boy being in St. Louis three years later? Could the boy be in danger? And what about Kate herself?

    From a the first words of the riveting prologue to the ending scenes,Irene Hannon keeps the suspense high in this novel, mixing it with just enough romance to satisfy those readers expecting both in their novels. I liked that this tale did not bounce back and forth across settings and wild chases. Instead, little bits of new information build, never enough to give us a complete picture, but enough to stir apprehension and unease. Despite its length at just under 400 pages, I rushed through this puzzling tale, wanting to make my way to the conclusion. I received a copy of DECEIVED from Revell Publishing for review purposes.

    Kate Marshall is finally getting to a place in her life where she can accept the heartache of three years ago when her husband and four-year-old son were killed in a boating accident. Every day she heals a little morewith the help of her move to St. Louis, a wonderful job, and friendly church community. Everything changes when she spots a young boy at the mall who looks and speaks exactly as her son Kevin did. When the authorities chalk her crazy theory to her being a grief-ridden mother and decide not to investigate, she turns to a private investigator as her last hope. Connor Sullivan knew from the moment he met Kate he would do anything to help her. As the former Secret Service man starts investigating the boat accident that killed Kates husband and son, he begins to find several anomalies that make him think that maybe it wasnt an accident after all...and Kevin could still be alive. Further investigations bring Kate and Connor closer, as well as bringing old secrets to light.

    I would have to start by saying that Irene Hannon is a master storyteller, especially when it comes to the suspense variety. Deceived has everythingpowerful mystery, hold-your-breath suspense, swoon-worthy yet realistic romance, engaging characters, and a bad guy that wasnt one-dimensional. When I first began Deceived, I was worried that it was impossible for it to have a truly happy ending considering the plotline. And Im a girl who likes happy endings *wink*. But there was no reason for hesitation, as Hannon weaved the story intricately peeling one layer after the other until we the reader saw everything as a whole. The ending was perfect, as I should have expected from this talented author. Another main thing I loved about this book was that it was very much character-driven, with a lot of attention into building the character's relationships. This made reading along as Kate and Connor grew closer all the more lovelier. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat, sporadically holding my breath until the conclusion. For the last half of Deceived, I literally couldnt put it down.

    If you enjoy inspirational suspense novels, this book is for you! This is my first experience with the Private Justice series, but Im practically jumping to get my hands on the others as soon as I have time. For fans of Ronie Kendig, DiAnn Mills, or Lynette Eason, Deceived definitely makes it onto my top suspense novels Ive read thus far this year...maybe even onto my top suspense reads ever!

    **I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
