Identity by Betsy Love
For a debut novel, Identity packed a great performance. This novel had a few twists and turns and the ending was a surprise.
Samantha is a very active Mormon girl vacationing in Mexico with her best friend Haley. Samantha can't decide if she wants to serve a mission, Amelia is on vacation with her fiance Brent. When the flight to Phoenix crashes and kills all but six passengers, including one of the girls, things go topsy-turvy.
When Samantha recovers from her two month coma, she doesn't remember any of her prior life and hasto learn everything over again, even to learning to love her family again. Her brother Shawn, ready to leave for the mission field, is concerned about her feelings for the new single man in their ward.
Brent is suscpicious about the crash, finding out that someone tampered with the commuter plane. He has problems with knowing how to pray, so asks his secretary, who is a Mormon, to help. He feels the urgency to get to Samantha to warn her she's in danger. With the police on his tail, he borrows his secretary's car to get to Phoenix.
With Samantha's family hot on the trail of the people involved in the plane tampering and another murder in Mexico, and trying to rescue Samantha, we have quite a scene. With Samantha and Amelia having a striking resemblance, anything can happen.
I thoroughly recommend this debut novel to anyone who loves a good romance with a lot of suspense thrown in.
I received my review copy from Walnut Creek Press.
