Labyrinth of Lies


Book Cover

 About the Book

 When the daughter of a high-profile businessman disappears from an exclusive girls' boarding school, police detective Cate Reilly is tapped for an undercover assignment. It doesn't take her long to realize that beneath the veneer of polish and wealth, things are not as they seem at Ivy Hill Academy. But the biggest surprise of all? The only man she ever loved is also working at the school.

Zeke Sloan has never forgotten Cate, but now isn't the best time for their paths to cross again. When their two seemingly disparate agendas begin to intertwine--and startling connections emerge among the players--the danger escalates significantly. But who is the mastermind behind the elaborate ruse? And how far will they go to protect their house of cards?

Queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon invites you to scale the heights of human folly and plumb the depths of the human heart in this second gripping book in the Triple Threat series. (Goodreads)


My Thoughts

I have read many of Irene Hannon's novels and so I was intrigued by the setting of this book most of all. Any mystery set in a boarding school is an automatic read for me. So I did love the setting and the overall mysterious story line side of things. I liked the characters okay. I didn't think Cate being undercover was particularly clever and how in the world did no one realize what was going on? There is suspense but really quite early in the book there is a dead giveaway away as to who is behind it all. So unfortunately for me the ending wasn't surprising at all and really the mystery of it all went down hill on the second part of the book. I really wanted to love this book but I just had a difficult time with it. I know many others have loved this book so it simply wasn't for me. I enjoy many of Hannon's other novels and will continue to read what comes out next.

Three Stars.
