Genre: Romantic suspense. Domestic Fiction.

Review by: Chantelle, LCA Intern for Library HQ

Synopsis: Roxy Nouvelle is well adept in the art of deception. The offspring of a renowned magician, she’s learned all there is to know about magic. Roxy’s smitten with the thrill of the games, the art of deceiving the audience. But magic isn’t the only thing that thrills her: Luke Callahan. A man after her own heart. He’s got magic up to the wazoo, and he’s a talented con artist. He has managed to con her  into the greatest deception of all, Love. 

Review: Honest Illusions is a slow romantic burn with magic sizzling through the air with the turn of every page, in each and every chapter.  Each page is a new electrifying thrill. 

The magic Roxy and Luke flaunt for their career is merely a smoke screen for a more nefarious career path, stealing precious jewels. 

They’ve never been exactly best friends which is good, because after years of teasing and taunting, they finally lay their proverbial cards on the table. No longer merely work partners, they’re partners in body and soul. Until one day when Luke suddenly disappears like one of his “acts”. Except when the curtain closes, Luke’s nowhere to be seen.

Five long, gruelling, heart wrecking years pass before Roxy sees the man responsible for her pain. Now the question must be asked, Is the magic still there? 

Honest Illusion is a perfect novel to pass the time with. Guaranteed to make you laugh and grin. Nora Roberts has a way of weaving a spell that easily transfixes the reader and transports you into the world within her mystical books.  If you have never picked up a Nora Roberts then make sure to do some today!  She is truly an author in a league of her own.
