“And God, we still have questions. Would love to have answers, if at all possible.”
Dark Deception is book two in the Defenders of Justice series written by Nancy Mehl. Four years earlier Kate O’Brien and her twin were attacked, leaving her sister dead. Kate was the witness in the trials and has since been in the witness protection system. She lives in Shelter Cove, a small town, and owns a restaurant. One day she has someone knock on the door of the restaurant before it opens. It is Tony, the marshal who was with her through the previous trials. The murderer has been released from prison and Kate is their only witness for a new trial. And now there is new evidence that points to him not being the killer.
Kate has not been as safe as she thought. She is abducted and taken into the mountain by the murder. The local resort owner saw them leave and takes Tony into the mountain to save her. While Kate is on the mountain, she was forced to face her greatest fear. But it began to grow weaker and the fact that God loves her, got stronger.
This is another awesome suspense by Nancy Mehl. I just love this story. The story started out and just kept moving with twists and turns that kept me wondering. As new evidence is found out, I was kept wondering who really was who. Those involved had changed their names and as the story evolves, the connections to those murdered are revealed.
This book is part of a series and some of the characters from the first book are mentioned, but the main characters are new. Two of the characters from the first book are engaged in this book, so reading the series in order is best. But other than that it can be a stand alone story.
I think anyone who enjoys suspense will really enjoy this book.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing and this is my honest review.
