Review: Deceitful by C Reilly

Title: Deceitful

Series: Rules of Deception #1

Author: C Reilly

When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, a young woman with special powers might be the only person able to stop him. As part of a secret branch of the FBI, Tessa is sent on a mission to impersonate Madison, a local teen and the last victim of the brutal attacker, to find the killer before he strikes again.

As if absorbing the DNA of someone else and pretending to be them wasn’t hard enough, Alec, the guy she’s been in love with for years, is joining her on the dangerous mission. Tessa knows she can’t let her feelings for him get in the way, especially as her crush seems hopeless. Not only is Alec her self-defence teacher but he’s also taken. If only the attraction between them would stop complicating everything!


Will Tessa find the killer before another person falls victim to him? Or will she lose herself in a life she’s always longed for but never had?

Supernatural mystery is a new genre for me to read but I knew the author wouldn’t let me down!

Here we have Tessa, an agent for the FEA (Forces with Extraordinary Abilities), and is sent on a mission to impersonate Madison, a victim of a serial killer to help catch him. But she has an added complication…her coach from the FEA who has been sent with her, Alec, she has a major crush on him!

What I loved:
* The supernatural elements, the Variation power,
* The story/plot, was totally engaged,
* Devon,
* Seeing Tessa grow in her own skin, well not her actual own, but you know!
* Alec and Tessa,
* The fact I was in the edge of my seat reading this with all the guesses flinging everywhere!

So really there wasn’t anything I didn’t like!

If you love a mystery read then you need to read this. Renegade, which is book 2, will be released in May 22.
