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 lightning 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 Review:
 
As a mother I was immediately captivated by this book. My heart ached for Jacey and her son, Blaze. I loved seeing Blaze come out of his punk state (my 14yo lives here half of the time) and flourish on the ranch. Jacey's best friend, Melissa, was a fun character. She added a lot to the story. I'm hoping there's a sequel with Melissa as the protagonist.

It's always heartbreaking to read about women escaping an abusive relationship. The author did a good job of showing Jacey's recovery and growth. I loved the touching relationship between Jacey and Blaze. I loved feeling of home on the ranch. The plot was interesting, the pacing was good, and there was just the right amount of romance. Definitely my type of story.
