Deadly Deceit By Natalie Walters

Persistent journalist Vivian DeMarco finds herself in small-town Walton, Georgia and she has one thing on her mind—getting out of town fast. That plan is thwarted when she finds her boss dead under suspicious circumstances and she’s thrust into a twisted mystery. All she has to do is stay alive.

Deputy Ryan Frost is tasked with finding out the truth around the murder, but when false facts lead to more questions, he’s baffled not only by the case but by his growing feelings for Vivian.

The closer Vivian and Ryan get to solving the mystery, the more danger they uncover. They fight not only the suspect but their feelings for each other. Will they figure it out before it’s too late?

Natalie Walters does it again! Another amazing story with Deadly Deceit. I was captured from the first page and surprised by all the twists along the way. This writer knows how to tell a tale!

The tension and conflict in this story were well placed. Just when you think they were safe, something else happens. This puts the reader right into the story, holding their breath. The author’s use of sensory is done effectively. It brings the words on the page to life.

The characters jumped out at me and I cheered Ryan and Vivian on as they raced to solve the puzzle. The secondary characters were well-rounded and served the purpose of the plot nicely.

I give Deadly Deceit five stars. The story will grab the reader from page one and stay long after the last page.
