This is my first book by this author, and I think she has a wonderful writing style. The pace of Identity Theft was almost frantic and left no room for inactivity.
Lacy/Jo is in danger and shows what life might be like for a woman on the run. Witness Protection is no joke, and I can only imagine what people go through while maneuvering through this system of anonymity. How do you build another life when you can’t let go of the one you had?
It took some hard hits and a few truth-bombs before Lacy could understand and embrace her new life. She has a choice: go back to the life she had and the danger that comes with it, or move forward while trying to find something new.
I was a bit worried there toward the end. With so much going on, I didn’t know if the ending would be able to keep up the pace. She smashed it, though, and brought the entire story round full circle. No easy feat for a novella.
I requested a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

More from Alana
What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you think about Alaska? Are you a city soul or do you prefer the country? I’m pretty happy in small-town Alaska, but I’m afraid that wasn’t always the case.
Have you ever lived in a town with 400 residents? Even with all the wide-open spaces, it’s enough to make some personalities feel claustrophobic.
I thought of our move to rural living as our big adventure. (Because what’s more adventurous than feeding chickens and milking goats at negative 40 degrees?) Then I read my first draft of Identity Theft and realized the adjustment wasn’t going as smoothly as I hoped. It was more autobiographical than I had realized!
However, I learned to love rural Alaska, and that’s the main reason I wanted to write my Alaskan Refuge Christian Suspense Novel series – so I could share some of my favorite parts with you.
Identity Theft is the first of three stand-alone novels, all filled with adventure, suspense and thrills, and all set against the backdrop of Alaska. I hope as you settle in to read, you will begin to experience a little of what I’ve grown to love living in this spectacular state.
