A Game Of Deceit by K. A. Davis-Book Review

About the book
A father’s disappearance never solved, a mother’s secret taken to the grave, a daughter deceived…
Kathryn Landry thinks her life is just about perfect. She is the owner of a successful interior designer business in Newport Beach, California, and she has an attentive, supportive husband. But her world comes crashing down when her husband, Neil Landry, vanishes without a trace… in a situation almost identical to the disappearance of her father twenty years before.
With her father’s disappearance still a mystery, Kathryn is skeptical that the detective assigned to her case will be able to find her husband. Determined to uncover the truth, Kathryn is plunged into a world of politics, high-priced call girls and wealth. As she begins to search for her husband, a decades-old secret her mother took to the grave threatens to destroy all she holds dear. Caught up in a web of betrayals and deceit, and not knowing who to trust, Kathryn must find a way to survive as she discovers the past has a way of repeating itself.
Does the book contain: only mild language and no graphic sex
And I thought
Honestly I was more than pleasantly surprised.  I really enjoyed this book.  I don't give 5 stars often.  A Game of Deceit deserves my 5 stars. 
I really don't know what I was expecting.  I guess I kind of didn't think it would fall into the Cozy category.   The cover took me closer to a suspense/thriller. 
I learned you can't judge a book by it's cover.
This was a great read.  From the beginning I was drawn in and captivated by the characters and the story.  
I caught myself rooting for a new love interest for Kathryn.  Should she end up with the cop or the client?

No giveaways here.  You have to read it!

This book is described as a standalone.  And nothing about a series is mentioned.  

Leads me to question if there is a 2nd book in the works.  The epilogue leads me to suspect that Kathryn, the detective, her client and new partner will appear in another book as there was a bit of a cliff hanger in the epilogue. 

The story did end with all the mystery solved along with a twist that I didn't expect!  

This was a good clean book.  Very mild language.  There was a bedroom scene in the very beginning. 

The author included recipes at the end. 

I enjoyed A Game of Deceit and I hope to see more.
