***I received a free copy in exchange for a book review***
When rising marketing executive Patricia Fowler falls for Paul Blast, a married co-worker, she tries to put her life into perspective–a task that becomes increasingly difficult when she starts having eerie hallucinations. Patricia’s dreams of a happily ever after turn into one nightmare after another as she battles threats that go beyond her imagination.
Is her new love behind the torment? After all, his former girlfriend ended up in an asylum.
Or could Paul’s wife be more than a bored, spoiled, rich girl?
Meanwhile, the FBI is trying to track down a thief who magically appears and disappears, taking priceless gems and artwork with her.
“Delusional” is a fast-paced thriller that blurs the lines of reality and fantasy, leading to an explosive climax where what you see isn’t necessarily what you’re going to get!
I enjoyed this book. It started out with a lot of action–Walter, the security guard, noticed someone had stolen the cursed Hope Diamond from the Smithsonian. The book sort of reminded me of Now You See Me since a thief was stealing famous artifacts and paintings with magic.
Patricia and Paul were co-workers. He was married to Wendy, and Patricia had a stalker ex named Derek. Patricia and Paul had a crush on each other, but they wouldn’t cross that line because of Paul’s marriage. Usually I don’t condone emotional cheating, but I could understand why Paul wanted to get away. Wendy was crazy! I loved that character twist!
Someone kept terrorizing Patricia with unbelievable tactics, so whenever she reported the incidents she came off sounding like a crazy person. For example, two people roughed her up on the job’s property, then quickly vanished. There were no images of them on camera like they had been ghosts.
I liked how the detectives investigating the robberies tied into the danger Patricia was experiencing. Word of caution–stay away from married men.
I loved the cliffhanger! The conflict and action in the story was entertaining.
I RECOMMEND this book to read.
