Publication Date: 8/18/2015

Series: Cainesville #3
Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb:


Olivia Jones is desperate for the truth. The daughter of convicted serial killers, she has begun to suspect that her parents are innocent of their crimes. But who can she trust, in a world where betrayal and deception hide in every shadow?


Liv does have one secret weapon: a mysterious sixth sense that helps her to anticipate danger. The trouble is, this rare power comes with its own risks. There are dark forces that want to exploit Liv's talents - and will stop at nothing to win her to their side.


Now Liv must decide, before it's too late. Who does she love? Who is reallyon her side? And can she save herself without burning down everything that matters most?

I would first off like to thank Dutton for allowing me to read an ARC copy of Deceptions! Now for the review!

Deceptions is the game changer of the Cainesville series. So many questions have been left unanswered in the previous two books and they are about to be shoved into the light. Armstrong has closed some doors on the plot points of this series, but in doing so has thrust opened an infinite amount of new paths for the suspenseful and emotional plot. Deceptions opens up the proverbial can of worms in regards to Olivia’s past.  

As an avid fan of this series, I knew that the darkness lying in Cainesville and in the mystery surrounding her murderous birth parents would be so twisted and evil that even the face of the sun couldn’t shed enough light on the subjects. This proved to be true.  One very large highlight to this book is Gabriel’s emotional development. His tough as steel resolve is tested so many times throughout the book. I think I honestly fell more in love with him in this book than the other two combined. Just when you think you have a clear idea of Olivia’s intentions Armstrong drives a switchblade to your heart with the ending. Honestly, I’m a little afraid as to what will be Olivia’s ultimate path. Only time and fate will tell. To sum up my review I would conclude that Armstrong has delivered an engaging and mesmerizing new addition to the Cainesville series. I can’t wait to read more by this marvelous author.
