Review - The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack

Review – The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack

After a long and difficult divorce, Jacey thinks the worst is over. Little does she know she’ll soon be forced to go undercover to protect her family, and in the process, she’ll risk losing her identity, her future, and her heart. With a lightening pace, a good dose of humor, and a plot that’s full of suspense, this thrilling novel is an edge-of-your-seat read.

My Take:

I really enjoyed this book! I found great sympathy for Jacey and her son Blaze as they attempt to put distance between themselves and Jacey’s ex-husband, an abusive thug and criminal. Jacey and Blaze flee Detroit for a quiet town in Utah. Jacey hopes to buy some time posing as Jacey’s friend Melissa, dropping in on Melissa’s estranged aunt and uncle. She and Blaze are received with open arms by these unsuspecting and loving “relatives”.

Slack adds just the right mix of characters and suspense to keep the pages turning, wondering what will happen to Jacey and Blaze. When the FBI gets involved things really heat up. I couldn’t stop reading!

The subject of spousal abuse is handled tactfully but rings true and gives the story a sense of realism. I felt great compassion for Jacey in her angst to protect her son.

The Alias is a good read, filled with humor, suspense, and a touch of romance. Great job Mandi! I can’t wait until the next book comes out!
