Overview

Death has a way of exposing secrets better left untold, and no one knows this better than sisters Verónica and Victória Mendoza . They're about to find out that things aren't always as they seem.

Verónica takes a bite of forbidden fruit when she becomes romantically involved with her boss. The one-night fling leaves her pregnant with another man's child and headed straight to divorce court. Victória can identify with her sister as she, too, harbors a secret love that goes against their strict upbringing.

After the sudden death of their mother, Victória enlists the help of her lover to unravel a decade's worth of deceit. Armed with letters written by their father, the sisters soon find out that deception runs deep, and their time here in America has been based on a lie. The man they once respected has become a symbol of fear with a hidden agenda, and he has no intentions of releasing them from a contract they didn't sign.

Deep Deception demonstrates how greed and the love of money can twist perception. As the mystery unfolds, readers will be shocked by the consequences of these vices.

    hmm, where do i begin? I was in the library looking for a book t

    hmm, where do i begin? I was in the library looking for a book to read that would pass time at work. (Call Center) Sigh!. I stumbled across this very interesting cover and decided to give it a go, being that I usually refrain from reading these "Urban Novels" being that I'm no longer in High School lol. Honestly the book was a quick read and the story line held my interest, I assumed that veronica, Ramon and Victoria's father really wasn't who he said he was. I dislike the way the book ended because so many things are left unanswered...which I guess was the point... it alludes to a sequel and it also appears that all the main characters are now dead?


    If you want a quick, entertaining book to read be my guest and pick this book up.

    Deep Deception by Tina Brooks Mckinney was overall a good read. The cover had me thinking it would be about black characters, but not too long after the book started it told me otherwise. Veronica, Victoria and Ramon are young and close in age and their lives is suddenly turned upside down when their mother collapsed and they are forced to called their father who is in Cuba that they haven't seen in years. All hell breaks loose when their mom dies and deep dark family secrets, not only about the families past, but the families present began to surface. Veronica married to man that her father would never approve of and is having a child. Victoria has a lover in her life that she thinks no one knows about and Ramon the youngest of the three is harboring hatred in his heart because he felt his MIA father wasn't there while his mom struggled to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.
    There is so much to say about this novel, that it would be too much to sum up in a brief review. Even though the main characters Veronica, Victoria and Ramon carry their own story line and is attached to the main story line of deceit with the Mendoza family secrets, Moses, Veronica's boss and Tilo, Victoria's roommate brings more drama to this tale with their own story. There are so many twists in turns in this novel, the title is perfect, however it was a bit much. I found myself wanting to rush the truth because it was like every other chapter there were more lies and more cover-ups. The plot literally "thickens," in this novel and it keep me reading because I really was dying to get to the point. Once it unfolded, I was wondering how it took so long to get to the truth that still left me confused and with unanswered questions. There were some things that occurred that didn't make sense to me and I noticed a couple contradictions.
    This novel was a page turning experience for me and it was drama filled, suspenseful and I literally couldn't put it down only because I really wanted to know how these lies would unravel. I was disappointed in a way because it ended with too many unanswered questions of how and why. This is the first book I've ever read by Miss Mckinney and I do see that she is a talented and creative writer and I look forward to reading more of her work. Deep Deception was overall an interesting read. I just would have like to have known more information of what really happened. This book looks like there will be a sequel.
