I actually read this book about a week ago but didn't get the review written in a timely fashion. This is the follow up to Silent Lies that I read earlier in June which has been recently released as Heart of Lies. I don't see why they have to change the title, it only confuses us and the second title doesn't seem any better than the first. Both fit the story perfectly, however.
Deceptive Intentions will be released sometime in the future as Heart of Deception. I'm glad I already had access to both books (my daughter owns them) because when I finished the first I would have gone berserk if I had to wait for the second. As it was I went straight from one to the other.
Silent Lies left me hanging and yearning to learn what would become of Leo and his daughter Maddy. I have read reviews of Heart of Lies and people seem content to wait for the 2nd book, but I certainly was not. I felt like they needed to be read back to back as one large story.
Loved Malcolm's writing and her splendid storytelling. I was totally enthralled with these books and highly recommend them. Actually, I've had a very good reading month and have totally enjoyed each book I've read.
