Olivia Lawrence Ward is an award-winning investigative journalist, meaning her career takes her far away from the security of her close-knit family in Savannah, putting her in dangerous places and situations throughout the world trying to get to the bottom of the story. Investigating the brutal murder of her beloved godfather, CIA Agent Stuart Grady, in Bogota, Colombia, Olivia finds herself in a compromising position about to be attacked when she is rescued by her ex-husband, who she has not seen or heard from in years. After some shocking truths and deceptive revelations are revealed, her ex-husband Joshua Hunt, with the private security company SPN Industries he works for, helps her unravel the dangerous mystery she is unwittingly deeply involved in. Sophia Parker, the director of SPNI, pulls together the group of family and friends she's holidaying with in Bogota, mostly working in law enforcement, to help. This takes them on a treacherous journey dodging bullets and gangsters from Colombia to her hometown in Savannah.

Deception: Savannah Sizzle Book 1 by Alex Croft is an exceptionally well-written suspense romance novel that will keep you guessing and unable to put it down. I loved it! I loved the author's detailed descriptions; you can feel the danger and the setting the characters are in. I enjoyed being immersed in their crime-solving world as they hope to get all the answers and bring down the menacing force behind all the murder and crime that's crossed continents. Joshua Hunt was my favorite character: loyal, passionate, and protective! If Deception is an example of this author's writing skills then I'm looking forward to reading more from Alex Croft.
