About the Book:
Title: Deadly Deceit (Harbored Secrets book 2)
Author: Natalie Walters
Genre: Christian Mystery and Suspense
Release Date: November 5, 2019
Independent and tenacious journalist Vivian DeMarco is back in Walton, Georgia, for one reason–to do her job and get out. When her boss suddenly dies under suspicious circumstances, Vivian’s only hope for finding the truth–and the next big story–is small-town law enforcement’s lanky poster boy, Deputy Ryan Frost. But the deeper they dig, the more twisted the truth becomes, and Vivian finds herself fighting for not only answers but also her life. False leads, incriminating emails, and someone called The Watcher force Vivian to confront the secret of her past and decide: How much is she willing to risk for the sake of a headline?
Author Natalie Walters welcomes you back to Walton, Georgia, where everyone knows your name–but no one knows your secret.
Ryan has his own book!
I’ve been waiting for this since I first got my hands on Living Lies and while I know it hasn’t been a super long wait, I knew I would have to read Ryan’s story. His character has not disappointed and his transformation from book one to book two fit into the story while adding interest and entertainment.
Vivian is back, too, and this time I didn’t despise her. As with any great character, there’s more than meets the eye to this reporter.
I read Deadly Deceit straight through without stopping. Ryan and Vivian had me in stitches and the superhero quips just kept coming.
Natalie Walters continued the momentum from Living Lies straight into Deadly Deceit. Some characters returned, so we were able to check in with them while moving forward with a new story and nothing felt repetitive.
I love a good sequel, and Deadly Deceit fit the bill, without a doubt.
The romance stayed on point while the mystery and suspense took the majority of the plot, so if you enjoy a nice balance of romance and mystery, I suggest trying this series.
