CLUB DECEPTION by Sarah Skilton
Grand Central Publishing
My Highly Caffeinated Thought: This book is a good mix of drama, duplicity, and romance all combined with the misdirection and magic of a good illusion.
CLUB DECEPTION opens up the world of magic to its readers. What is so great about this book is that the story give us all the wonder that is a magic show, but deconstructs it all at the same time. With a sleight of hand and a bit of misdirection, Sarah Skilton weaves together a character driven mystery so captivating that I wasn’t able to put this one down.
I truly loved the way that the author gave us strong female characters that are more crucial to the story than the men on stage. From the veteran magician’s wife Claire to the newbie young trophy wife Jessica to the girlfriend impersonator Kaimi, all of these women show strength, heart, and a bit of fierceness.
This book is a wonderful tale that has the glitz and glamour, but also isn’t afraid to show the underbelly of the illuionist’s world. So prepare for the card tricks, the illusions, and the backstabbing. This is going to be one heck of a show.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
