Trish Bailey is on overload trying to deal with a demanding job, an ailing mother, and a healing heart. When a series of unsettling memory lapses leads to a tragic death--and puts Trish under police scrutiny--her world is once again thrown into turmoil.

Detective Colin Flynn isn't certain what to think of the facts he uncovers during his investigation. Did Trish simply make a terrible mistake or is there more to the case than meets the eye? As he searches for answers, disturbing information begins to emerge--and if the forces at work are as evil as he suspects, the situation isn't just dangerous . . . it's deadly.

This is the beginning of another "can't put it down" series by Irene Hannon. The plot really kept me guessing throughout. The principal characters are intriguing. The subtle faith references refreshing and inspiring. Set aside some serious reading time, because this one won't let you get much else done. Irene Hannon never disappoints - this is a must read.

Trish Bailey has had a tough couple years and is devastated by a new loss, worrying that it was somehow her fault. Detective Colin Flynn's instincts tell him Trish is innocent of any wrongdoing, but he has to do his job and investigate the case thoroughly. She's been experiencing strange instances of confounding memory lapses, attributing it to the stress and grief. But could something more sinister be at work? I always look forward to Irene Hannon's latest romantic suspense. She sure knows how to write compelling and unputdownable suspense. She has a way of crafting truly chillingly evil villains that set my nerves on edge. And this villain is quite horrible. The prologue definitely hooked me, but the pace was a tad slow for the first part of the book. But before long, it picked up. I thought I had everything figured out, but then there was a big twist that changed everything. I never felt much of a connection to the characters, but the mystery and danger kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. I really loved seeing some familiar faces from a couple of Hannon's previous series pop up. Lovers of romantic suspense are sure to enjoy Dangerous Illusions. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.

Great start for Irene Hannon's new series. Not one that starts with a bang, but definitely a good mystery. Hannon does great character development as always. It's pretty easy to figure out the bad guy right off. Or, at least you think you have. Hannon has mastered the art of deflection in this book. Just when you think you understand what's going on, a new twist comes into play. This is what mystery lovers live for. This can easily be a quick read, but I recommend you don't rush it. There are a lot of subtle clues handed out, and it was very enjoyable to try to stay ahead of the characters to solve the mystery. I'm very glad this is the first book of the series. I am really looking forward to more with the characters Hannon has introduced. I just wish she could write faster. I want to read the next book now!

BRILLIANT! Dangerous Illusions (Code of Honor Book #1) is exhilarating from start to finish! Excellent characters - Trish Bailey is a fantastic main character. Moral, caring, loving, devoted to her Mother and her students and intelligent. Detective Colin Flynn catches the case involving Trish’s Mother’s mysterious death. He’s steady as a rock, by–the–book, dependable, but ready to take risks and act once he’s thought things through. The villain is one of the most well–conceived characters in this genre! The way Hannon weaves this storyline will have you hanging on every page! I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Revell. The opinions expressed here are completely my own. I preordered a copy of this book for my own personal library.

Irene Hannon rocks, this new series is awesome, having just finished Dangerous Illusions I can’t wait for the next book in this series. The author had me on the edge of my seat from page one until the very end. What does murder, embezzlement, stealing identities, Mafia, and did I say murder again; have to do with a young woman who has already lost a lot? We soon realize that Trish comes from a rather well to do family, and they are big on giving back, but money can’t buy happiness, and she has lost her beloved husband, her Dad, and her Mom was severely injured, in an accident. Trish spends her days teaching and taking care of her Mother, but evil has a way of winding its hand in and that happens here, with the accountant, but things are not always as we perceive, but keep reading. Spell bound is a good term for this page-turner, and you will be unable to put this one down. This is a Christian meeting the evil of the world, and we pray for the good to prevail. We do meet early in the book Detective Colin Flynn, and sparks fly between him and Trish. Loved the interaction between Flynn and his long time friends, survival friends from youth on, and how they are there for one another. This is a read that is going to linger! I received this book through Librarything, and was not required to give a positive review.

DANGEROUS ILLUSIONS is a page-turner by Ms. Hannon. I started this book Sunday afternoon and by bedtime I was almost done! I was right in the middle of the ending, so I had to stay up another hour to finish so I could reach the HEA. I felt for Trish, as the caregiver for my mom after her stroke, I can't imagine the guilt I'd feel if I was accused of deliberately overdosing her. I was glad when other suspicious things happen and the detectives on the case take it seriously and start looking different directions. When two cases merge into one, and then more surprises happen, and a third case appears, it is a race against time and Trish's life is in danger. Filled with intrigue, suspense, romance, and questions with no easy answers, this is a book to keep reading from start to finish. Ms. Hannon is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors and this book is a perfect example of why. Even though we KNOW who the bad guy is, plenty of questions are left to be answered. And Ms. Hannon has unexpected twists thrown in. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
