Double Deceit - Book Review

Elaina has started a new life. She's been reunited with her sister, started a new job and found the support of old friends. And just as it seems to be coming together she gets a letter from her dead husband . . .

Double Deceit is a romantic suspense novel that will have you turning the pages till the wee hours. This is author Stephanie Humphreys second book and the girl knows how to set the pace. The story moves along at a good clip. I read it over two days. It's one of those books where the kids keep saying, "Mom, mom," and you hardly hear them (ouch). Laundry goes untouched, dishes pile up, etc. So be prepared before you start, because you won't want to stop.

The story takes place in windy southern Alberta. I can attest that her scenes are accurate having grown up there. In fact it made me a little nostalgic. The country I miss, the wind I do not.

In Elaina you will find a young woman who has suffered loss, but is ready to move on. She meets a cast of supporting characters who are well defined. The plot keeps you guessing right to the end and has quite a twist.
