Deceived: A Novel (Private Justice) (Volume 3)

For three years, Kate Marshall has been mourning the loss of her husband and four-year-old son in a boating accident. But when she spots a familiar-looking child on a mall escalator, she's convinced it's her son. With police skeptical of her story, she turns to private investigator Connor Sullivan for help. As the former Secret Service agent digs into the case, the boating "accident" begins to look increasingly suspicious. But if Kate's son is alive, someone is intent on keeping him hidden--and may go to lethal lengths to protect a sinister secret.

As Irene Hannon's many fans have come to expect, Deceived is filled with complex characters, unexpected twists, and a riveting plotline that accelerates to an explosive finish.

My Impressions: 
Book three in the Private Justice system, follows the tragic loss of Kate Marshalls, husband and 4 year old son, Kevin. After grieving the loss of both a husband and child Kate is thrown for a curve when she spots a boy one day in mall that bears a striking resemblance to her son, Kevin, and even uses his unique word-Poppysicle. Needing to make sure that this young boy is not her son, for the sake of her sanity, she hires PI Conner Sullivan to find out the boys identity, but all is not as it appears in the romantic suspense. 

This was an amazing book. Filled with romance, mystery, murder, kidnapping, revenge, and conspiracy; the works. From the first page till the last page I was enthralled all the way through.  I had a hard time with Greg-he is a doting father, obviously loves Todd, wants the best for his son-yet he is the villain nonetheless. I can almost sympathize with him. He lost his wife and son as well, same as Kate and he cracked under the grief from that loss, same as Kate. The only difference is the means they went about handling that loss that separates them. Either way it was a sad ending, although just and deserved.
Easy book to recommend and such a great way to end this series; cannot wait for the next thing Irene put’s out.
