    "They weren't letting her out of their sight. ""They were treating this like a crime scene." "They were acting like she was a suspect".

Following protocol, Detective Colin Flynn, must ask the lovely young widow some awkward questions while instinctively assessin...

    For me, Irene Hannon's villains are the highlight of her suspense novels, and this might be her cleverest twist yet on a villain--a twist that I did not see coming. There's very little I can say about our most clever and diabolical villain without spoiling the brilliance for everyone else, so suffice to say, he's good and supremely well-developed. The author is brilliant for creating him.The backcover copy of the book describes it as "a mind-bend...

    DANGEROUS ILLUSIONS is a page-turner by Ms. Hannon. I started this book Sunday afternoon and by bedtime I was almost done! I was right in the middle of the ending, so I had to stay up another hour to finish so I could reach the HEA. I felt for Trish, as the caregiver for my mom after her stroke, I can't imagine the guilt I'd feel if I was accused of deliberately overdosing her. I was glad when other suspicious things happen and the detectives on ...

    I knew I was going to love this book. It's written by IRENE HANNON, after all! I love her suspense books almost as much as I adore her contemporary novels, so each of her books go immediately on my must-read list. Dangerous Illusions certainly did not disappoint. With suspense, romance, detective work and big twists - Dangerous Illusions is a thrilling read from start to finish.The past two years have taken their toll on Trish Bailey, an art teac...

    Irene Hannon rocks, this new series is awesome, having just finished Dangerous Illusions I can’t wait for the next book in this series.The author had me on the edge of my seat from page one until the very end. What does murder, embezzlement, stealing identities, Mafia, and did I say murder again; have to do with a young woman who has already lost a lot? We soon realize that Trish comes from a rather well to do family, and they are big on giving...

    The Code of Honor series is going to be another winning series if Dangerous Illusions is any indication of what is to come. Irene Hannon is a master at writing Christian romantic suspense. This is a book that I didn't want to put down and I just wanted to read it straight through. Trish Bailey is a dedicated art teacher at a school in a bad section of town because she wants those students to benefit like other those in better neighborhoods. She i...

    Dangerous Illusions by Irene Hannon is the introduction to her new Code of Honor series. In her last series, Men of Valor, I believed there was too much romance that outdid the suspense. But in this introduction, she has brought the suspense back to the forefront of her novels, which makes me really proud. With a romantic suspense, I know that I'm getting a little bit of romance, a lot of suspense, and reoccurring characters. With Dangerous Illus...

    Review can be found here. I loved that this case required quite a bit of detective work rather than being all action. There is action that happens, but we really get to dig into the cases with the detectives. Even though as a reader I was introduced to the villain, knew their motive and got their point of view, I felt like I was right there with Colin trying to solve the cases and figure out how (if) they were connected. Trish has gone through so...

    Trish is under a lot of stress and attributes some of her recent absentmindedness to that stress. But when her mother suddenly passes away it appears that Trish may have mixed up her medication by mistake. Detective Colin Flynn is handling the case and at first it appears that Trish's mother's death is just a terrible accident. Trish is still having memory lapses and is thankful for her mother's accountant Matt who manages her mother's charity. T...

    "Dangerous Illusions" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. It's the first book in a new series, but it's also a stand-alone novel. It's one of my favorite by this author. Trish has been through a lot of loss and heartbreak. She's used to taking care of herself (and others), so she initially had a hard time "bothering" Colin to ask for help. But even though she's independent, she was sensible and wasn't stubborn about having her own way.We know...

    Trish Bailey has dealt with a lot in the last two years: her father and husband's death, her mother's stroke, a demanding job in a rough area. Then life throws her a curve ball. In addition to that, she seems to be having very unsettling memory lapses. Can she even count on herself at all anymore?Detective Colin Flynn doesn't know what to make of the investigation he's been called into at Trish's mother's home. Nothing makes sense. But soon, thin...

    4.5 stars--Top PickThe first novel in Hannon's new Code of Honor series is intricately plotted with a large number of unexpected events that will keep readers guessing. Just when everything seems to be figured out, another surprise comes from left field and turns the story upside down. The villains in this tale are truly bad, with all of the characteristics that support their wickedness and make them sinister and believable. This allows God's pow...

    I really liked the mystery! It was super interesting and intriguing.The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat! I never would’ve guessed that important piece of information about the villain, which I will not spoil here. 😛Trish was a likeable character, along with Colin… but their romance was thrown at me at the beginning. It was actually almost the top main focus in the book, other than the mystery, and I wasn’t expecting that. I mean,...

    Trish Bailey had gone through so much turmoil over the preceding two years, losing her father and husband in a horrible accident which left her mother confined to a wheelchair unable to do so many of the things she loved. Seeing to her mom’s care and working as an art teacher in an underprivileged school kept Trish from focusing on her great loss, and also from forming new relationships. Was the mounting stress impacting her judgement, possibly...

    I received a copy of this book from LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program in exchange for an honest review. Note: I always struggle a bit to review books like these because I don't want to give away the plot twists and endings.At the beginning of the book, I felt a bit confused. Matt Parker gets a surprise, unwanted visitor who seems a bit sinister. We learn that Matt is an accountant who is overseeing the funds of a foundation established by Tr...

    Suspense at its best. In the first book of her Code of Honor series, Irene Hannon sets a pace that will be hard to maintain. I have little doubt that she can but she will definitely have to work to accomplish it. The suspense was intense starting with the opening scene when Matt Parker opens his front door to an unexpected guest, and it continues to build on through the book. Then there is the current of romance just below the surface. Trish Bail...

    Irene Hannon has been one of the Queens of Mystery and Suspense in the Christian Fiction genre for a while and Dangerous Illusions helps keep her there with its well-written intrigue, evil and apprehension.Hannon creates villains that are complex, diabolical and interesting; Illusions gives you one that has a clever twist to the big bad of her story that you’ll thoroughly enjoy. I really liked how well-developed she made the character and my es...

    There is nothing like a good Romantic suspense along with a Christian background. "Dangerous Illusions" by Irene Hannon certainly does hit the spot. This novel is also about stress. It can certainly become a nightmare. In this instance, a daughter becomes a murder suspect. Her high stress level at the time is the cause. Caring for a sick mother and losing a father to death leads to quite a few mistakes. Her errors make it very easy for her to bec...

    Dangerous Illusions by Irene Hannon is just as wonderful of a romantic suspense book as her contemporary romance books I have read by her. This being the first suspense book for me to have read, I wasn’t sure if the Christian elements would be as strong or as well done. I was amazed at how marvelously that is woven in the suspense and police investigation. If you have ever been in a situation such as Trish Bailey, then you know after two years,...
