The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack Blog Tour and Giveaway!


“Jacey Grayson is an average, young, divorced mother struggling to build a new life for her son, Blaze.  But when the FBI discloses some disturbing information about her ex-husband, Jacey’s life becomes anything but average.  At the risk of losing her identity, her future and her heart, Jacey and Blaze flee to Utah, hoping to hide and start over once again.  But no matter how far she runs or who she pretends to be, her past is always lurking nearby, bringing old fears with it.”

This LDS fiction book grabbed my attention from the get-go and held it all the way through to the end.  It was fast paced and engaging.  It took me, oh, one day to finish reading this book.  I really felt the emotions of Jacey, willing to do anything to protect her son from an abusive monster of a man.  Her story, along with so many real life people who deal with physical and emotional abuse every day, is just heart wrenching.  I can’t even imagine living like that.  I admired Jacey’s courage and her determination to be stronger, to face her fears and find peace.

I loved Uncle Grant and Aunt Helen.  To me they personified the very essence of family.  No matter the distance or the years, family is family.  You take them in with open arms and a heart full of love.  They really felt like home to me.

The cover of the book is cool too.  It’s what first attracted me to the book.  J  The Wasatch Mountains pictured on the front cover really are beautiful.  I get to look out my window and see them every day.

The Alias was a fast paced (did I already say that?!), heart pumping and heart warming all at the same time.  It pulled me in emotionally and gave me some of that nice romance (which you gotta know I love!).  This was an all around good book for me.  I'm really looking forward to reading more by Mandi Tucker Slack in the future.  You can find out more about Mandi here.

I am so glad to be a part of this blog tour for The Alias.  My thanks to Tristi Pinkston for including me and thanks also to Cedar Fort for providing the book for me to read.  You can purchase The Alias here and just so you know, you can pick it up on Amazon for the Kindle for just $3.99!  That's and awesome price for an LDS fiction book!  

I’m giving a copy of The Alias away.  Happy stuff!  I actually signed on to do this blog tour and then won a copy of the book in a giveaway I entered.  So, I have two books and I’m giving one away.  Just leave me a comment with your email address to be entered.  That’s it!  Giveaway ends Oct. 31st.

And, as always, my thanks for stopping by.

  20. I love a good suspense thriller and often use them as a palate cleanser
    when I've been reading a long series or have got bogged down in a genre to long. Sounds right up my alley.
