About the Author

alana-terry.jpgAlana is a pastor’s wife, homeschooling mom, self-diagnosed chicken lady, and Christian suspense author. Her novels have won awards from Women of Faith, Book Club Network, Grace Awards, Readers’ Favorite, and more. Alana’s passion for social justice, human rights, and religious freedom shines through her writing, and her books are known for raising tough questions without preaching. She and her family live in rural Alaska where the northern lights in the winter and midnight sun in the summer make hauling water, surviving the annual mosquito apocalypse, and cleaning goat stalls in negative forty degrees worth every second.

 

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 Theftand 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 readyou will begin to experience a little of what I’ve grown to love living in this spectacular state.

My thoughts:

I really enjoy Alana’s writing. The other books I have read by her have definitely held my interest.

This is a fast read to be sure. I will say the first half of the book left me a bit disappointed. Lacy was very whiny about living in Alaska and I had trouble believing some of the choices she made. Later in the book the author does share she had those feelings when she lived in Alaska. I will say I don’t always like to read about someone else whining about it, even though that might be reality.

The second half of the book picked up for me and I found it a lot more interesting. Questions about who Lacy could trust and a somewhat surprise ending that I really didn’t see coming helped me enjoy this book more.

Not my favorite Alana Terry book but I am looking forward to reading more in this series.

Grab your copy at Amazon, Barnes and Noble or your favorite retailer.
