When Lyddie takes her sister to Devon to recover after a recent suicide attempt, it starts a train of events that will put their lives in grave danger.
Ellie has been the victim of a professional con artist, one who stole her savings, then disappeared from her life. Driven by her own history of failed relationships, Lyddie vows revenge on the man who broke her sister’s heart.
Soon she assumes a false identity and begins her hunt for a man she knows to be cold, calculating and ruthless. But who is fooling whom? And can Lyddie find the justice she seeks and heal her damaged sister?
My hats off to the author for writing a story line which not only raises awareness about suicide but to the darker site of dating websites also. Suicide is something that has never been really talked about, tending to be brushed under the carpet. It’s great to see it brought up in television shows as well as now in books.
Lyddie was someone I took to straight away. Even though their mother is still alive, there is still the big sister syndrome of wanting to watch out for the younger sibling as well as helping them stand on their own two feet.
Through Lyddie wanting justice for her sister, we get to see a side of dating sites that most of us would never know about. Without a doubt there are predators of both sex that use these sites for various reasons and it’s scary at how easily people can be taken in.
Deception Wears Many Faces is a brilliantly twisted read that had more than a couple of jaw dropping moments. The author throws you off the trail with plenty of red herrings so that when the revelations come they are totally unexpected. I have read quite a few books by this author now and this has to be one of my favourites by her.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Deception Wears Many Faces is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
Before turning her hand to writing, Maggie worked mainly as an accountant, with a diversion into practising as a nutritional therapist. Diet and health remain high on her list of interests, along with travel. Accountancy does not, but then it never did. The urge to pack a bag and go off travelling is always lurking in the background! When not writing, going to the gym, practising yoga or travelling, Maggie can be found seeking new four-legged friends to pet; animals are a lifelong love!
