Overview

Stephanie Warren doesn't believe in the Fountain of Youth until she inherits it. Only then does she discover that beauty can be deadly, that there are those willing to kill for such a formula. Fresh out of college, this would-be writer is no match for hired assassins. Quinton Cooper, a homicide detective, is Stephanie's best chance for survival. Because of past experiences, neither welcomes this close relationship, but thrust into a web of greed, betrayal, and sordid liaisons, they realize their survival depends on trusting one another. While Stephanie escapes several near-fatal encounters, bodies of would-be murderers continue to mount. Under fire and in the midst of a hurricane, an elusive culprit makes his move. Quinton takes a bullet in the back. Now it's up to Stephanie to save them.

Stephanie Warren is a typical young woman, struggling to find her way in the world when she gets the opportunity to interview and write the life story of Alexis du Bois, a wealthy woman in Mandeville, Louisiana. Stephanie jumps at the chance, even though it means transplanting herself from the North to the mysterious Cajun Gulf Coast state. When she meets Alexis, mystery is definitely in the picture because while Alexis claims to be her mother, she looks more like Stephanie's twin sister. Alexis dies soon after, and the coroner says her organs were virtually destroyed. Did the elixir that supposedly made her look so young also kill her? Lots of people want to know if this "Fountain of Youth" elixir exists and some are willing to kill for it. Quinton Cooper, a local detective, isn't interested in elixirs or magic, but he does want to know if the murders in his town are related to whatever is going on at the du Bois place. Soon, Stephanie and Quinton begin working together to answer that question and more when it seems that someone is targeting her. Deadly Illusion is a fast-paced, gripping book that captures the mystique and wonder of Louisiana. The question and supposed magic of the elixir doesn't overshadow what is, essentially, a murder mystery story. A few questions are left open at the end, but nothing that interferes with the satisfying ending.
