Unanswered questions send Reagan and Aiden across the country in search of answers, with danger never far behind.

When a young woman finds herself unknowingly accountable for the past sins of her family, she must unravel their secrets and lies to stay alive.

When her grandmother is brutally murdered in her own home, Reagan Asher leaves her corporate job and rushes to her sleepy hometown in Ohio.

She has barely entered the house before a second break-in attempt is made, prompting police to believe it’s not just a random burglary. Reagan’s lifelong friend Mattie asks Aiden Rannell, her brother-in-law and an ex-Navy Seal, to lend support and protection to Reagan as she navigates the investigation.

Aiden suggests a ring that Reagan’s grandmother owned may be more valuable than anyone realizes.

Considering her frugal life growing up, Reagan dismisses the idea, showing Aiden an old pink box filled with similar colorful, ornate costume jewelry she and her friends played with as children.

When they find a decades-sealed container with shocking contents supporting Aiden’s concerns, Reagan begs him to help her find the origin and if it is related to her Nana’s death.

Finding clues to solve a decades old mystery proves challenging as the threats to Reagan’s life escalate.

Could the discovery of a water-stained, half-torn photo found in her grandmother’s safe deposit box be significant?

Her mother’s suicide?

Her father’s abandonment?

Unanswered questions send Reagan and Aiden across the country in search of answers, with danger never far behind.

With each new revelation of deception and lies, Reagan begins to doubt everything she ever knew about her life.

Review by L.C. Mims:

Author Joy York’s mystery, Genuine Deceit, is a true thriller. Reagan Asher’s grandmother is murdered and Reagan, with the help of Navy Seal, Aiden Rannell, must figure out who’s behind the murder as well as the ensuing break-ins and kidnappings.

Added to the mystery are antique jewels, loose diamonds and pearls, and questionable ancestry. Reagan discovers that her whole life has been a deception, and nobody is who she thought they were.

Through it all, Aiden proves to be a dependable friend and someone Reagan grows to lean on. That is, of course, until her boyfriend from Chicago enters the scene.

This story is so much to unpack and Ms. York handles it skillfully, right up until the final pages.

If you’re looking for an exciting mystery that’s hard to put down, you don’t want to pass on this page-turner.
