Mystery Lovers Unite

Saturday, October 04, 2014

I love a good mystery. My Mom who pretty much only reads theology books and mysteries was the first one to tell me about Irene Hannon. Ever since then, her covers draw me in and Dee Henderson's words about Hannon's books always add to my excitement.

Hannon creates characters who are facing extreme circumstances that could be headlines in the news. As you read her books, you have to remind yourself that this particular crime is fiction and that the main characters don't actually need your help. 

As I was reading Irene Hannon's newest release, "Deceived", I quickly realized that it wasn't a whodunnit as much as a HOW was it done and a race against time to make things right. Mysteries like that can be very refreshing! Hannon does an excellent job of tying in details about the investigation and creating characters with a lives that carry on in spite of the dilemma that is defining their life through the course of the book. 

"Deceived" is all about a woman named Kate who has been living in the aftermath of a boating accident that caused her to lose both her husband and her four year old son. On a trip to the mall she is convinced that she has seen her son. So, she hires a PI named Connor in an attempt to put her mind at ease. "Deceived" is proof that things are not always as they seem. You probably won't be able to put this one down, because Hannon is a master of cliffhangers. 

I'd point any mystery lover to "Deceived" and encourage them to check out Irene Hannon's other books too! Her style will be especially enjoyed by fans of Dee Henderson and even Mary Higgins Clark. Her style is the perfect combination of real life, mystery, and interesting details.

Have you ever read any books by Irene Hannon? 

* I was provided with a review copy of this book by Revell. All thoughts are my own honest opinion.
