I received a copy of Decieved by Irene Hannon from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A chance sighting convinces Claire Marshall that the son she thought she lost is still alive--can former Secret Service agent Connor Sullivan help her uncover the truth?
For three years, Kate Marshall has been grieving the loss of her husband and their four-year-old son in a boating accident. But when she spots a familiar-looking child on an escalator in the mall, she is convinced it is the son she thought was dead. With police skeptical of her story, she turns to private investigator Connor Sullivan. The former Secret Service agent is dubious but agrees to investigate. Digging into the case he discovers that the incident may have been no accident at all. But if Kate's son is alive, someone is intent on keeping him hidden--and may be willing to go to lethal lengths to protect a sinister secret.
This is the 3rd book in the Private Justice series. I've enjoyed each book in the series. Kate lost her son and husband 3 years ago. She moved to St. Louis for a new start and while at the mall one day sees who she thinks is her missing son. She goes to mall security and the police only to be laughed at. When she can't get the boy off her mind she goes to a private investigator. Connor Sullivan and his collage buddies agree to investigate. Not only do they find the boy Kate and Connor find love along the way.
