Review of Deadly Deception by Andrea Johnson Beck


Dr. Anne Jamison, a brilliant neuropsychiatrist, is living the concrete jungle life in Minneapolis with her fiancé, prominent attorney Adam Whitney. But the mysterious death of Carter Leeds, her beloved former boyfriend, still haunts her…

After three years of unanswered questions, a mysterious package finds its way to Anne. The note inside reveals the possibility that Carter may, in fact, be alive. Even more shocking, her very own fiancé may have had a hand in his attempted demise. Anne doesn’t know what—or who—to believe, and the deeper she digs, the more she is overcome by a dangerous game of cat and mouse. But will Anne’s trust be restored—or will she be the one left plotting revenge?


Rating: A+

There were several times while reading this book that I was left thinking “wow”. The emotions were so real that I experienced some of them along with the characters. It was definitely a page turner; I never wanted to put it down. The author took such care to include the tiny details that are oh so important that a lot of authors forget. I.E: “Opening her trunk, she hauled out two pieces of matching luggage, then dropped them with a thud as small rocks kicked up under the rubber wheels.” Most people wouldn’t even think about the rocks being kicked up, but Ms. Beck made sure to include it; like the rocks were just as important as the location or characters. Ms. Beck is certainly a star! This book deserves to be on every best seller list out there, because it’s simply amazing. It has blown my expectations of suspense completely out of the water.
