Labyrinth of Lies

                 Labyrinth of Lies By Irene Hannon

 3 stars. Thanks to Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Company, for sending me this book to read and review. I was intrigued by the story line- Cate Reilly detective goes undercover to investigate a missing person case at a prestigious boarding school and Deke Sloan also is undercover DEA investigating drug trafficking at the same school. The story just was a little too far fetched for me- Cate who is 33 goes undercover as a high schooler, and Deke is the long term Spanish substitute.  Cate and Deke have old history (8 years before they were in love and Deke picked his job over Cate and left Cate heart broken). Their relationship was not my favorite part of the story. I enjoyed the detective an investigative work more. I also enjoyed Cate’s relationship building with her roomie Kayla. I just struggled to by into the story as a whole and it was just an OK mystery for me.
