Dangerous Deceptions is a collection of short Christian Suspense novels by eight different authors. The stories range from thriller to romantic suspense.
The books are:
- Lethal Outbreak by Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry
- Collision Course by Elizabeth Goddard
- Glimmer in the Darkness by Robin Patchen
- Expired Plot by Lisa Phillips
- Ice by Lynnette Bonner
- Never a Traitor by Jan Thompson
- Ben in Love by Luana Ehrlich
- Liar Like Her by D. L. Wood
Lethal Outbreak, Collision Course, and Liar Like Her were my favorites of the collections. They had a good mix of suspense and romance, unique characters, and intense writing. Honestly, the collection is worth getting just to read those three novels alone!
I think I would have enjoyed Ben in Love more had the narrator been the one in the romantic situation, but I liked the style of the story and suspect I would enjoy Luana Ehrlich’s other series. I have to admit, I skipped Glimmer in the Darkness since I couldn’t finish the first chapter due to content (and so would add a trigger warning)…. In a collection, it’s difficult not to compare one book to another and I found Expired Plot, Ice, and Never a Traitor did not captivate me like Lethal Outbreak, Collision Course, and Liar Like Her.
Another reason why I love collections like this is because it’s a chance to be introduced to new-to-me authors. I read this one because I’m a fan of Elizabeth Goddard’s books. Now, because I read the collection, I’m excited to look up the other authors to see more of their books.
