Sarah thinks she cannot take any more stress than what she already has surrounding her. Between the mysterious phone calls, the written threats, and a coworker who has suddenly gone off of her rocker, she is ready to dig a hole and hide in it. Then along comes her husband Dan with an even bigger problem and Sarah suddenly finds herself playing the part of protector. Meanwhile, Isabel continues to uncover a world of secrets that has her questioning everything and everyone she has ever believed in. Will Sarah and Dan be able to straighten out their lives and get what they desire most? Will Isabel get the justice she feels she deserves?
Desire and Deception is a tale full of many different tales. At times it felt like it was spiraling out of control. I could not always grasp the many different events and obstacles that were affecting the main characters. On top of that, Sarah is supposed to be this smart woman doctor but she comes across as very naïve and quite clueless at times. There are many important issues that are touched upon throughout this novel but are not really resolved. While Ms. Buchbinder knows how to entice the reader with sexy scenes, the overall storyline made this hard for me to enjoy.
