You know it's a good read when it takes you several chapters before it hits you,on yeah I read this before. I was disappointed so I kept on reading. Just as exciting as the first time.😁

I love Hope Callaghan 's books. I didn't recognize this series. So of course I bought it. I love the way she brings her faith to each book in comforting ways. The characters read like people I would love to add to my friends list. This was a quick paced story that I enjoyed.

How Does She Do?

How does Hope Callaghan write so many good books so fast?
You really do need to read this set in order. If you treat this as a stand-alone it will still be a good read, but you won't know what's going on. Callaghan is in her usual high form as she artfully leads you to suspect the wrong people.

really felt lost as if the story was a direct continuation of previous book. Characters were not really identified and you had only slim idea of connections. problems wrap up quickly and the story just stops to be continued in next novel....
unless you plan to read all 3 dont bother.

Excellent adventure

As I said, there was amazing adventure more than half way through the book. The plot moved along rapidly. Then the climax and a lot of mushiness followed. I like undertones of romance, but this was a bit much. I'll continue reading Hope, though, and recommend this book for the amazing adventure!

How can one women get into so many scary situations? She's smart, sassy, strong and has attracted 2 good looking men. Will she pick the right one? Very good book.

This is the second book in the Deception trilogy written by Hope Callaghan. Sam returns from her cruise and the bad people come looking for her. This book continues with the great storyline and character development created in Book 1, and has twists and turns at every corner. The suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat, but there are moments of romance, devotion to family and friends, love of God and faith, plus LOL moments though out the book. As with all Ms. Callaghan’s books, this one con ...more

Sorry to say that I found this book just not very well written. Connection with the preceding book in the trilogy (which I had not read) was not adequately explained. The early part of the book was pretty promising, and I kept hoping the rest of the book would live up to that standard. Sadly it did not. I found, for the most part, that the book was just underdeveloped, with rough transitions. Frankly I don't understand the average 4-plus star rating this book has received (that rating is why I d ...more

This is the first book in this series that I have read (though it is book #2 in its series) but I did not feel lost by not having read the first book. I have read other books by this author. In places, I found the writing a bit amateurish sounding or simplistic.

This book follows Samantha Rite after she returns from a cruise (on which she was taken hostage). Samantha's daughter and her friend have taken a trip to Florida using the same luggage that Samantha used. Little does Samantha know that s

Love the this book better.

We continue Samantha' s adventure in this book but we the addition of daughter Brianna to the mix.The suspense keeps up to the last page.
I was glad to see Gabby make an appearance. Her flamboyant personality is refreshing and I hope to see her in the next book.
Now on to book 3.

Another great book by Hope

This I s another great mystery by Hope. The story makes you feel as though you are a part of the action. You want to keep reading to find out what is going to happen. This is a book you will enjoy and I highly recommend it.

Exciting page turner

The continuing story of Sam becomes a real page turner as she fears she is being followed, developers close friendship and involves her daughter and her daughter's friend in her adventures. Very goodbread

Winds of Deception

Book two in the Samantha Rite mystery series. This is a continuation of the mystery in the first book with several of the characters returning. Samantha is in danger, but why, and what about her daughter who is on vacation with her best friend in Orlando.

A bit too short

The story was over before I was ready for it to end. Maybe I should have refreshed my memory on the previous book, then I would have seen the answer to the who-done-it part. Now on to book 3 while this one is still fresh in my memory!
