i love reading about twins...they have a close bond that most of us have never experienced. Jamie and Patti are identical twins, which makes them even more unique. From the very first scene where a phone call introduces an unheard of niece to Patti - right to the epilogue, Lillian drew me into the novel of suspense and intrigue. The imagery she uses as Patti slips into heart stopping situations puts the reader right there. Patti is a strong individual (and sad to say, I can see myself in this character at times) pushing her way forward. Strong as she is, she is also loveable, believable and vulnerable as she cares for her sister daughter, and searhes for the truth. It is through Patti's thoughts that we learn of their past history. Carter is also a strong in his convictions, and in his calling, but love bends his path. Together Patti and Carter face a world of unknowns, keeping Sabrina and those around them safe. I found it extremely difficult to leave this novel to go do things I needed to do, and finished this in one day. Superbly well done, and I will be reading more of her novels and recommending them to you and all other friends. I give this novel 5 stars out of 5.
This suspenseful, inspirational, well-written romantic fiction is an excellent example of its genre. The key players: police, FBI agent, Patti, Jamie and Carter are people of faith, but it is integrated in such a way that it reads realistically. The pace is professional, and the characters are well drawn—a fun read. Maggie Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance and More
Lillian Duncan is becoming a name in suspenseful romance, and Deception carries on the tradition. It's superb storytelling!
DECEPTION starts with a puzzling situation: Patti Jakowski receives a phone call from a scared little girl who thinks Patti is her aunt. Except Patti has no known niece and hasn't even had any contact with her twin sister for years. The intrigue deepens when Patti discovers what a lavish lifestyle her twin has been leading - and the fact that she seems to have vanished without a trace. What follows is a deception that tests all Patti's creative skills and puts her in more danger than she ever imagined.
Deception kept me on the edge of my seat. It isn't very often that I make time to read a book nonstop but with Deception I made time. This is the second book of Lillian Duncan's that I've read and like the first it's an excellent story. Her writing makes me think of Dean Koontz with a Christian slant.
