ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Definitely a book I didn't want to put downNovember 20, 2017ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Irene Hannon has drawn me into a new series with Dangerous Illusions, book one in the Code of Honor series. Trish Bailey is stressed beyond her ability to cope, at least that's how it appears. The worst thing she can imagine happens when her distracted mentality comes into question over a death...or was it murder? Colin Flynn is the best kind of cop. He's tough but never gives in to the easy answer. And he's Trish's only hope of solving the crime.
I enjoy Irene Hannon's books because they promise lots of action, twists and turns, and of course, romance. Dangerous Illusions is a great read and I can't wait for book two.

This has got to be Ms. Hannons best to date. The plot is riveting and full of mystery, suspense, adventure and action. I never knew what was in store next for Trish and Colin. I had to keep turning the pages to find out. I just could not put the book down. I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book of the series.
Fabulous read. I highly recommend it and give it 5 stars.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
Just Commonly4 Stars Out Of 5Great suspense that will have you guessing!November 16, 2017Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0"They weren't letting her out of their sight. They were treating this like a crime scene. They were acting like she was a suspect." (30)
Irene Hannon is one of those authors that I know I'll have a good story when I pick up one of her books. In her latest, Dangerous Illusions, the first book of a new series titled, Code of Honor, with both suspense, intrigue and interesting characters, a fan of reading will not be disappointed. The opening was definitely mind-swirling, as we encounter more of an ominous nature to start. When the opening leads you deeper into the story with questions, you know you'll want to read on to find out the answer.
"Hollywood couldn't have staged a more dramatic - or ominous - reunion." (7)
Yes, plot had me guessing and wanting answers, yet it was the relational aspects throughout that had me smiling and invested. The camaraderie between Colin, Kristen and Rick was just fun. I love how that affected Trish in the beginning as well. The backstory of our main characters was also well developed to a point of understanding and connection with the readers.
"No way you'd ever back out of the standing Saturday date with your two best friends in the world - unless a woman was involved. Romance can mess with your head." (56)
Not only romance in the case of Dangerous Illusions, I can tell you. In all, this is yet another winner for this bestselling author, and a great start for a new series to follow.

At Grandma's Place5 Stars Out Of 5Can you shatter the illusions and solve the mystery?November 16, 2017At Grandma's PlaceQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ahh... a quiet afternoon, a hot cup of coffee, a cosy spot in the sun, and a good book... What better way to spend a relaxing afternoon.
It's even better when the book is one by Irene Hannon. I've enjoyed a few of Irene's suspenseful mysteries so I was looking forward to Dangerous Illusions.
The story opens on a tense scene enacted within a stormy setting.
'Fingers clutching the door knob, he stared at the shadowy figure as shock thrummed through his nerve endings. In the background, another eruption of electricity slashed across the inky sky. A sharp crack of thunder shook the walls of the house. Rain pummelled the tulips rimming the porch, beating their heads into submission!'
And so.. the scene is set. In fact, the introduction has all the satisfying elements of an exciting mystery: 'It begins with on a dark night where a dark man waits with a dark purpose' sort-of entrance to the story.
But more follows. There's an engaging but capable heroine, a quiet, pensive and insightful friendly investigator, a twist of romance and loose ends throughout that keep you wondering and guessing just how they all tie together.And what about the illusions?
Let's begin with a close community, a respectable neighbourhood, that suddenly hears whispers of scandal and rumours of suspicious behaviour, lurking beneath a calm public facade.
The investigating detective notes: 'The neighbourhood might be posh, but as he'd learned throughout the years, ugliness didn't have a zip code. Crime happens everywhere.'
And there was a crime. An unexpected, unfortunate and seemingly accidental death camouflages a murder and a sinister purpose.
Where does the guilt lie and why? When everyone involved presents the illusion of innocence and respectability, who can you trust? As danger hovers in the shadows, will the answers be found too late?
'Evil intent often lurked beneath a veneer of respectability.'
If you enjoy a good mystery, especially one with suspense and romance are thrown in as well, then you should read Dangerous Illusions. Can you solve the puzzle? Can you break the illusions?
SBMV5 Stars Out Of 5nail-biting page turnerNovember 15, 2017SBMVQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Im a huge fan of Irene Hannons books and this newest installment of romantic suspense definitely goes above and beyond the already high standard of quality writing the author is known for. Its a fast-paced, action-packed, adrenaline-pumped, and mystery-infused edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting ride that you wont be able to put down!
Ms Hannons writing flows smoothly and naturally. The villain is introduced right away (as shes known to do in her books) but there is so much more to the villains story than meets the eye. And that backstory slowly winds around the main plot until youre left gasping at the conclusion of the suspense and mystery. The authors villains have more depth and layers than just flat, evil faces with names, which makes the story much more intriguing.
Colin is a great hero. Hes a St. Louis detective - dedicated, hard-working, thorough, highly competent and intelligent, loyal, and compassionate though he came from a broken home and background.
Trish is a loving, compassionate, and dedicated art teacher who has been pummeled by tragedy after tragedy for the past two years and now must find out how to manage the charitable foundation her parents left behind.
Enter Trishs parents accountant Matt and things start to take twists and turns to shape Colin and Trishs world into a strange likeness of the Twilight Zone.
Colin and Trish are both likable characters, though I connected more with Colin than with Trish. Trish seemed a bit two-dimensional and their romance was less developed than I would have liked. However, the plot was so detailed and engaging that Im happy to overlook these minor anomalies in this book.
It was also nice to see some familiar faces in this book from Ms. Hannons previous novels. I did a double-take a couple of times to make sure I remembered these past characters correctly (since this book is the first in a new series and not a sequel) and was immensely pleased that I did. Did Ms. Hannon always bring some noteworthy characters from previous, unrelated series into her new books and I didnt notice until now? How fun!
I cant wait for the second book in the series to release next year!
