Review: Deadly Deceit by Natalie Walters

To Purchase

Independent and tenacious journalist Vivian DeMarco is back in Walton, Georgia, for one reason--to do her job and get out. When her boss suddenly dies under suspicious circumstances, Vivian's only hope for finding the truth--and the next big story--is small-town law enforcement's lanky poster boy, Deputy Ryan Frost. But the deeper they dig, the more twisted the truth becomes, and Vivian finds herself fighting for not only answers but also her life. False leads, incriminating emails, and someone called The Watcher force Vivian to confront the secret of her past and decide: How much is she willing to risk for the sake of a headline?

Author Natalie Walters welcomes you back to Walton, Georgia, where everyone knows your name--but no one knows your secret.

My Thoughts:

This romantic suspense seemed different from others in its genre; fresh. Of course, the nerdy hero who was lovingly nicknamed Captain America was the best part. But the major crime in this one was exploitation, and what the mysterious Hacker forced the people he had bad footage of to do, dwarfed all the other crimes in this book. Especially reading through the points of views of the people whose lives were being ruined because of a mistake the Hacker was using against them. Because, you know, it’s not like anyone is perfect.

I loved watching our main characters as they dealt with the baggage from their past and tried to figure out what to do with themselves in the future, all while trying to see where their present flirtation fit in. Really, they were so adorable, and I really, really loved our poor, awkward Steve-Rogers-turned-Captain-America who was finally taking his chance to go after the girl of his dreams. The crazy reporter girl of his dreams, poor soul. Though, I almost had to dock a star for saying Hulk and Black Widow were a proper couple, though...

A fresh twist to a classic genre that I had a hard time putting down.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

About the Author:

My world revolves around GIJOE and our three adult (or almost adult) children who keep my life anything but predictable. Our boots hit the ground wherever the Army sends us but home is when we’re all together no matter the zipcode. My passion is writing stories where adventure meets love and share my belief that life rooted in purpose is a story worth telling.
