Deceptions by Kelley Armstrong

Deceptions by Kelley Armstrong
2015, Dutton
Series: Book 3 of Cainsville

Synopsis: Olivia Taylor Jones's life has exploded. She's discovered she is not only adopted, but her real parents are convicted serial killers. Fleeing the media frenzy, she took refuge in the oddly secluded town of Cainsville. She has since solved the town's mysteries and finds herself not only the target of its secretive elders but also her stalker ex-fiancé.

Visions continue to haunt her: particularly a little blond girl in a green sundress who insists she has an important message for Olivia, one that may help her balance the light and darkness within herself. Death stalks both Olivia and the two men most important to her, as she desperately searches to understand whether ancient scripts are dictating the triangle that connects them. Will darkness prevail, or does Olivia have the power to prevent a tragic fate?

The Good: I love how this series slowly unfolds the whole paranormal side of things. As the third book, the faerie stuff is coming into the forefront. We still get a ton of answers regarding the ongoing mystery of Olivia's parents crimes, but we also get a lot of the why and how of the town of Cainsville itself. There is a love triangle building up steam, but it's weird. Olivia is sort of stuck between Ricky and Gabriel, but Gabriel has more issues than any character in any book EVER, so romance isn't a possibility for him. The love triangle thing is a predestined deal of sorts, so it's going to play out regardless of its realistic possibilities, which will likely lead to some very interesting events in the future.

The Bad: Not a thing.
