Kate O'Brien's quiet life in small-town Shelter Cove, Arkansas is shaken when her past suddenly comes 
roaring back to life. Four years ago, she and her twin 
sister were attacked by an elusive serial killer. Only 
Kate survived, and she's been in witness protection 
ever since.

When new evidence arises to suggest the convicted man wasn't the murderer, she's subpoenaed to testify in the new trial. Afraid to go back into that world, Kate only 
agrees if Tony DeLuca, the deputy Marshal who protected her during the original trial, escorts her to St. Louis. 

     My thoughts:  DARK DECEPTION is Ms. Mehl's latest, and the second in the 

Defenders of Justice series.  I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the first, though
the action and suspense were still top notch and engaging. Kate is a hurting woman,
hidden in the witness protection program, or so she thinks. When her sister's killer 
is released from prison, he denies he did it and that the real killer is dead. But some
one is still out there and her life is in danger. 

I did like Tony, he was real, but also hurting, like Kate. He was also confused. Torn 
between attraction to Kate, the truth, and direct orders, plus under attack from an 
unknown assailant, he didn't know where to turn. 

If you like romantic suspense, pick up a copy of DARK DECEPTION. You'll be kept
up late reading until the end... 

There are a lot of unanswered questions causing this reader to wonder what's in
store in Ms. Mehl's next book. 

I received a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own
