**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

Deceitful is Cora Reilly's first book under her new pseudonym C. Reilly. This is a supernatural romantic suspense and focuses on Tessa, who is part of a secret branch of the FBI. She is sent on a mission (her first!) to impersonate Madison, a local teen and the last victim of a brutal attacker, to find the killer. I really liked the atmosphere Cora created for this book, she did a great job in portraying and making me believe I really was present in a small town in Oregon. The plot was also pretty original, I have read many romantic suspense novels but haven't read that many with a touch of supernatural.

I was going into this story thinking it was a standalone so I had expectations in regards to character growth and romance. The suspense in my opinion was done really well, and I know that in romantic suspense novels the romance can't be totally in the foreground but I just didn't feel a connection between the characters Tessa and her crush/love interest Alec. He unfortunately didn't make me swoon at all and the romance felt a bit immature. Which is normal from Tessa's POV because it's her first crush but I was indifferent towards Alec and couldn't connect to him. I really hope their romance will develop more in the next book. I really liked Tessa and I look forward to seeing her grow more in the next book.
