Title: Lost in Deception
Author: Anita DeVito
Publisher: Entangled Select Suspense, Entangled Publishing

The story starts with Peach Morales going to give her uncle his lunch. She stops en route, talking to him by phone and watching him operating the huge crane. She videos it to share with her grandfather, not expecting to record the crane toppling over into the near Lake Erie . . . . She knows it isn’t her Uncle’s fault and is determined to put her skills as a private investigator to use to help discover who is and to prove her Uncle innocent . . . .
Thomas Riley is a forensic investigator who is called to investigate the crane crash. Everywhere he turns he keeps meeting Peach . . . . working together could help solve the investigation but, despite their mutual attraction, they’re both stubborn, independent and determined so it certainly won’t be an uneventful collaboration!
This romantic suspense is packed with drama and some very entertaining antics! The author is skilled at balancing the humour, steam, action and mystery to keep readers enthralled from start to finish. Peach is a brilliant character, sassy, feisty and sneaky and her interactions with others are memorable! Tom is the strong silent type but Peach certainly breaks down his barriers! With a wrecked hotel room, fiery encounters and so much more, this is a real page turner that I have no hesitation in highly recommending.
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Private investigator Esmeralda “Peach” Morales watches in horror as the crane her uncle is operating topples into Lake Erie. He disappears and she’s convinced he’ll be the scapegoat. She’ll do anything to prove he’s innocent. Seducing the lead investigator is just part of her strategy, at least that’s what she tells herself.
Thomas Riley is at Elderberry Farm when he learns of a deadly crane accident in Cleveland. The forensic investigator suspects sabotage and amid the rubble and mangled metal he uncovers a web of lies and deception. At the center of it all is a beautiful brunette who always seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Both fiercely independent, they must learn to work together––inside and outside the bedroom––to unravel the mystery and clear her uncle’s name.
