Independent and tenacious journalist Vivian DeMarco is back in Walton, Georgia, for one reason–to do her job and get out. When her boss suddenly dies under suspicious circumstances, Vivian’s only hope for finding the truth–and the next big story–is small-town law enforcement’s lanky poster boy, Deputy Ryan Frost. But the deeper they dig, the more twisted the truth becomes, and Vivian finds herself fighting for not only answers but also her life. False leads, incriminating emails, and someone called The Watcher force Vivian to confront the secret of her past and decide: How much is she willing to risk for the sake of a headline?
I absolutely loved Deadly Deceit! This was one that I didn’t want to put down! I was guessing until the end and completely interested to see how it would conclude! This book was well balanced in plot and pacing and the characters were amazing! Vivian and Ryan have great chemistry. It was such fun to read their interactions! I was so skeptical going into this book when I learned that Vivian and Ryan were our main duo! They were both featured in Living Lies, and they both had a few flaws. This book picks up a year after Living Lies and these two characters have had significant growth and changes in the year between these stories. It absolutely made me connect with them and I loved them! Their nerdy Marvel Superhero banter was charming and was such a fun addition to this book! I love it when an author is able to make me like a character that wasn’t my favorite in a previous book! There was plenty of action sprinkled throughout this book and the conclusion is pretty intense! I am definietly a fan of this latest release from Natalie Walters!
