First love. Second chance.

This book is a sweet blend of mystery and romance.

After spending 12 years in London, Leah had to return to Singapore for her father’s funeral. An apparent hit and run accident of her father turns out to be more than what meets the eye. Her childhood crush, her first love, Toran James, involved in a rumored yatch explosion, meets her in Singapore and together they set out to solve the mystery of her father’s death. There is a restrained passion between Leah and Toran in the midst of suspicion and mystery surrounding the investigation. Was her father’s death just an accident? Will Leah trust Toran? Since the end of the story does not give closure to Leah and Toran’s relationship, readers are left with a few questions, wanting to know what happens further. Will Leah and Toran meet again? This thought would make them grab the next book of this series. Overall, Tender Deceit is well written and an enjoyable read. Leah and Toran’s story continues in the second book of the TENDER Series, called Tender Treachery.
