Dangerous Illusions: a book review



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.

Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon captures readers with a mind-bending story that will have them doubling back to retrace their steps–and figure out what they missed!

My Review:

Dangerous Illusions is officially one of my favorite Irene Hannon books. I love it when an author can keep me guessing.

Trish is a strong character, considering all she’s been through, but sometimes she didn’t seem to be as affected by the tragedies as one would expect. It’s a minor quibble though, and really only because i’m trying to nitpick.

Dangerous Illusions is a powerful start to what i’m certain will be an incredible new series. The sooner book 2 gets out, the better.
