What did I just read? This book completely blew off my mind. I have been wanting to read a revenge story for a long time. So when this book came up on my radar, I had to grab it. And I am glad I did! Not only is Deception Wears Many Faces an amazing revenge thriller, it is so much more and beyond your expectations. The moment our protagonist, Lyddie, takes it upon herself to extact revenge from the con man who broke her sister’s heart, I was pulled into the black hole. Never for a moment did my attention waver from the story. I just HAD to know how Lyddie will accomplish her plan and come out safe. But then the book starting taking dark turns and I started to having doubts that is Lyddie safe. Throughout the read I was shaking my head, things were too simple, too easy for Lyddie and I could see that Lyddie was in deeper trouble than she thought. I wanted to get hold of her shoulders and shake her, wanted her to see that she might not be going the right way. Also, I had a feeling that more to the story that what actually appears to be the case, and I was right! The book has amazing twists and shocking turns. At one point, I was walking in one direction and then the book made me do a 180. After some time, the book again tapped me on the shoulder and made me do another 180. And I was like, ‘Heck! What are you doing to me?’ What I didn’t know that the book had another surprise for me which would made me do a 360. And do you know what’s great? I loved all the 180s and 360s this book made do. It was all worth it! Need I say that this book is a must read? Get you hands on this book ASAP!
