After a long and difficult divorce, Jacey is sure the worst is over. But when the FBI reveals some disturbing information about her ex-husband, she is forced into hiding to protect herself and her son. In the process, she risks losing her identity, her future, and her heart. Thrilling and suspenseful, this novel is an edge-of-your-seat read.
This novel has grit without being course or unnecessarily graphic, bringing authenticity to the story.
The antagonist is corrupt, evil even, while never uttering a word of profanity or behaving salaciously—although, clearly, he has the potential.
The protagonist lies and defies the voice of reason, over and over, but does so in a way that is spot-on for a woman fleeing from an abusive relationship. And though Jacey’s actions and responses might frustrate readers, her behavior is what I, as a former family therapist, would expect from a woman in her situation.
Kudos to Slack for showing the raw side of being human.
I really enjoyed this book.
It has drama, suspense and romantic tension. The secondary characters are vivid and likable. I especially enjoyed Uncle Grant and Aunt Helen. They remind me of the uncles and aunts I used to visit in Southern Utah during my summer breaks as a youth. As for Kale, he is just plain yummy. The suspense is well written and compelling particularly toward the end. And not to give anything away but someone even gets “hogtied” which is too cool.
If you’re looking to make a break from formula LDS fiction, you should definitely give The Alias a try.
