Dr. Ree Ryland must work with the FBI to catch a criminal before time runs out in this cozy, page-turning thriller.

"I really enjoyed this story. It's a little bit of a crime, thriller, suspense, mystery with a smidgen of romance all wrapped up in a quirky package with brainiac, feisty female lead." -Laura, Tangents and Tissues Book Blog

Dr. Ree Ryland is an engineering professor who loves her job and plays by the rules. Her life is reassuringly predictable – until an enemy hiding in plain sight decides her squeaky-clean reputation is the perfect cover to commit a crime.

When Agent Parker Landon and his FBI team discover that someone at the university has been procuring military-grade hardware by disguising it as test equipment, all evidence points to Ree. After the FBI intercepts a shipment that puts Ree in the clear, Parker is forced to tell her that she’s being used as a pawn by an unseen enemy. And now she’s in that enemy’s crosshairs. Ree turns down the protective detail offered by the FBI and insists on using her inside knowledge to help with the investigation. Parker is leery of bringing a civilian on to the team, but he’s surprised at how much fun he has working with Ree, even as he tries to keep her out of harm’s way.

Parker, Ree and the FBI team find increasingly worrying evidence that someone is quietly acquiring everything they need to cause destruction on a massive scale. Now, they must uncover the motive and identity of the killer hiding among Ree’s friends and colleagues before it’s too late.

    I love that the lead character in the book is a strong woman. Well developed characters and an intriguing plot line that keeps you wanting more. A successful conclusion ties the story up with a pretty bow.

    I really enjoyed Calculated Deception. It was a mix of light humor, intrigue, crime drama excitement and romance. Completely appropriate material for for any age, starting with young adults.
  • Mystery woman in science

    By jdt_s
    The author is a female scientist writing to encourage other women in the scientific field. I applaud this desire to encourage women into these fields because we have been shunted away from science in our schools in my experience. That needs to halt so that we are enabled by our training and wits to hold responsible positions in a scientifically oriented society! Kudos to the author for her moxie and for presenting a reasonable mystery without foolish entanglements, no Bond girls in this tale!

    An action-packed book of mystery, suspense, romance, and thriller. What more could you want? I loved this book that is so well-written with a story so compelling, I could not put it down. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Engaging, interesting, and authentic!

    By AStorm2691
    One of the best mystery novels I’ve read in a long time! This is what happens when female authors write about female heroines- we get authentic stories with a lead who is both believable and relatable. Couldn’t put it down and so excited to read the next installment.
  • This book is a page turner

    By Ihatenicknames50
    I have just finished this book and it is excellent and a very difficult book to put down. It was refreshing to see a strong woman lead who is smart and not broke. Also it gives examples on how a female engineer can make a difference.
