    1. I enjoyed The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack. It's definitely a suspense novel that sweeps you right into the action and Jacey's life. If you liked the Julia Roberts movie Sleeping with the Enemy or the book Without a Flaw by Michele Ashman Bell, then you should definitely put The Alias on your to-read list!

    2. Jacey Grayson is your average single mother who is just trying to create an ordinary life for her son, Blaze. She never dreamed that her haunting past with her ex-husband would threaten her way of life.Fleeing for her life, Jacey takes her son to an unlikely place in hopes to keep her deranged husband from finding her.Have you ever set a book down with a sigh after reading it, and think, "That was exhilarating."? I was whisked from the bustling city of Detroit to a lazy farm town in Utah.This bo [...]

    3. A well written action/suspense/romance/adventure story. I loved the way the story unfolded and the way we got to see how Jacey made her choices. She is an abused woman who has reasons for the way she behaves and the choices she made were difficult and realistic. I didn't like (nor did she) involving her son in lying to wonderful people. I loved the secondary characters- they were real and fun. Everyone wants an Aunt and Uncle like them. I liked how she had such guilt for her lies, and how she tr [...]

    4. 3.5I liked this one. I probably would have changed a few things, but overall I thought it was enjoyable. Jacey decides to go into hiding with her young son, Blaze (dumb name, IMO), when she fears her abusive ex-husband is going to take him away. She pretends to be her best friend Melissa and goes to stay with Melissa’s estranged family. Part of my problem with the book is that her time in Utah is only about a week. I wish she had spent more time there and it definitely would have made her rela [...]

    5. I'm coming to grips with the idea that not all books have to be considered classic literature to be good. There are books that are so amazing that they change your life and these are the books that I have long considered to be the ones worthy of my time. However, in doing book reviews, I am now reading more of the non-life shattering books. They may never make it to The New York Times Bestsellers, and that is perfectly o.k. As an aspiring author these books are giving me courage to get my storie [...]

    6. The Way I See It:The Alias by Mandy Slack was a fast paced story about a lady name Jayce Grayson who is forced to go into hiding to protect both herself and her young son from her ex-husband. As if that isn't enough, FBI agents show up at her door one day asking her about her ex-husband business dealings and her part int it. Concerned that if the FBI can find her, then her ex-husband can, she makes a desperate move to take on someone else's identity and steps into life as them in order to buy so [...]

    7. The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack is an LDS romantic suspense with a twist--definitely good if you like books that keep you guessing. (And I really liked the cover art for this book. Very nice!)Jacey is approached by the FBI regarding her abusive ex-husband and his possible criminal activity. She realizes that if the FBI can track her, then her ex-husband with all of his connections can, too, and she needs to get herself and her young son as far away as possible. She takes on the identity of her r [...]

    8. Review originally posted on ldswbr - Blog tour review of The Alias by Mandi Tucker Slack bit/p3gzbII really like they way the cityscape and landscape from the two main locations are blended together on the front cover. It caught my eye. The story caught my attention as well, and I had no problem turning pages because I wanted to see what would happen. I believe this is the author’s debut novel, and if so, she did a great job on her first published novel.I liked the main characters and the rela [...]

    9. Jacey is a divorced single mom who is starting over. She left her abusive husband and is trying to have a new start with her son Blaze. The FBI starts investigating her ex for some serious crimes, and her ex wants Blaze back, so Jacey decides to leave for their safety.Jacey's best friend, Melissa, suggests that Jacey assume her identity and go stay with her aunt and uncle in Utah to hide out. Melissa's aunt and uncle have only seen her in some older pictures, so it seems like as long as Jacey ca [...]

    10. I blame Mandy Slack for my migraine today. She wrote The Alias, a book so compelling that I made myself sick reading for so long. It's not often that a book gets that kind of accolade from me. I do read constantly, but usually I can bear to put it down at least sometime. I fell asleep with The Alias awake on my Kindle last night.Jaycey's story was completely believable. Having had an ex who boasted of Mafia connections, I knew exactly where she was coming from. She put me right into the middle o [...]

    11. When Jacey Grayson is finally able to divorce her abusive husband, she finally believes she will be able to move on with her life. However, when the FBI shows up and begins asking questions about her ex-husband's mob ties, she has no idea what they're talking about. Fearing for her life and the life of her son Blaze, Jacey assumes her best friend Melissa's identity and flees to rural Utah. As Jacey and Blaze are welcomed by Melissa's family, Jacey is torn from the need to lie and protect her son [...]

    12. The Point of the PlotJacey Grayson is on the run from her abusive ex-husband. She finds solace pretending to be her best friend Melissa in the home of Melissa's loving, but estranged, relatives in Utah--that is, except for their son Kale, who seems to see right through her. Determined to protect her son, Jacey will do anything to keep them safe.Basically Believable: *****Mandi should be congratulated for being the first to earn five stars in this category, but I had to give them. Nothing about t [...]

    13. Jacey Grayson, with her young son Blaze, are living with her best friend Melissa and her young daughter, Jenny, trying to put the past behind them and start over.Her ex-husband, John, who was abusive, has been suspected of having murdered a journalist and in being involved with a crime family in Chicago. The FBI suspects she knows more than she's telling, so, with Melissa's help, she goes in hiding to Utah to protect herself and Blaze.When they arrive at Melissa's relative's farm, she feels guil [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed. The story seemed to flow very well without making me feel like there were things happening just to move the story forward. I loved how though Jacey was going under a different name, I never got confused when they used the other name. The romance in this was just perfect for me. Nothing blushworthy ever, and it developed in a way I could accept without making it feel like it was forced. But it was still very sweet and romantic and I [...]

    15. This is an awesome story that is very well written about spouse and partner abuse. It is written quite tastefully, yet powerfully, with a hint of romance to make it all better. This is a hard subject for any woman that has been in an abusive relationship, and for those in their families who have to watch them suffer. Mandi uses all her love for country life and sprinkles it with the gospel of Jesus Christ to make this into a beautiful work. Jacey is a young woman with a nine-year-old son. After [...]

    16. This 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 determin [...]

    17. I have to say that I love a book that is clean. Anyone who knows me or who has read my own work knows that. Even more than that, I love a book that is clean and GOOD! And Slack's The Alias fits that bill very well. Jacey Grayson is forced to go into hiding to protect herself and her son from her violent ex-husband. She's not happy about the deception required, especially when she sees her son becoming sullen and withdrawn. But she finds a sense of safety at the ranch in rural Utah with Grant and [...]

    18. This was a sweet story about starting over. Jacey Grayson is escaping an abusive relationship and its fallout when she ends up in Utah hiding on a farm at the end of a dirt lane in Mona. But in order to stay hidden, she has to lie her socks off about who she is. "Uncle Grant" and "Aunt Helen" are really kind and the guilt of lying to them eats at Jacey--but not more than the fear. When John, her ex-husband, locates her, he shows up and nabs their son, Blaze, while Jacey is out buying feed for th [...]

    19. Jacey is a divorced mom who needs to escape her life, quickly. Her ex-Hubby, an abusive creep, has the FBI on his tail, and he also believes he deserves to have custody of their son, Blaze. Jacey assumes a "new" identity, and escapes to Utah with her son. The story was intense, with action and suspense at every turn. The abuse by the Ex-hubby were real and heart-wrenching, making it difficult to read without crying.The Alias was a great read and I enjoyed every last second of it!! First-time nov [...]

    20. I just really enjoyed this book. The characters were vivid and likable. I especially enjoyed Uncle Grant and Aunt Helen. They reminded me of my rancher uncles and aunts I used to visit during my summer breaks growing up. It had lots of grit without being course or unnecessarily graphic that brought an authenticity to the story. The suspense was well written and very compelling toward the end. And not to give anything away but someone was even "hogtied" which was too cool. The only negative, and [...]

    21. I really enjoyed this book. Well written, fast pace, great characters and a good plot. I liked the way the author tackled the subject of domestic violence and abuse. Jacey and Blaze's characters grew and developed well.This book carries a strong Christian message but this was not rammed down the reader's throat. The way this was introduced into the story made sense and the outcome was natural. I could not put the book down as I couldn't wait for the next chapter to find out what would develop. I [...]

    22. hi im cathy from dublin.iv just finished reading ias. & i really enjoyed it from cover to cover. mandi decribed mona in utah so beautifully i feel iv been there. the story was gripping & different. my friend's friemd in utah posted it to her in dublin & she passed it on to me. a long journey for a book but well worth it. a really enjoyable read. would highly recommend it. well done mandi hope u write many more xx

    23. This was a book through giveaway. thank you so much.This was a very good book about a married woman who needs to escape from her exhusband who abused her in past and has found out he has possibly commited murder so she runs away as "an alias" to Utah to her best friend estranged aunt and uncles house. She also feels bad for lying and pretending to be someone else as she has to have her son lie also. This was a very good book and enjoyed the ending.

    24. This was a quick, easy flowing read. The plot was easy and fun to follow and the characters were so down to earth and believable I felt like they could be my next door neighbors. I could've used a bit more suspense and intensity (but I'm kind of A.D.D that way). Overall a great read. To read my full review and an interview with the author, visit: stephanieworlton/

    25. I really wish offered half or quarter starsis is more of a 3.5 book, but just couldn't give it a 3, so 4 it is.Likeable characters and a good story line that flowed well. Enough romance to keep me interested (I have discovered that no matter how good a book is, I usually don't like it as much if it doesn't have just a little bit of romance), but that wasn't the only focus of the book. Can't decide it if is a re-read candidate or not, I just might ;)

    26. I LOVED this book! I honestly couldn't put it down in those last few chapters! I would be reading it on my lunch break and trying to get away with clocking back in late just so I could keep reading! I'd definitely recommend this book!

    27. I really enjoyed this book. It was a good read that kept you interested in what was going to happen next. I could really see the people and areas there were at. Great job can't wait to read your next book!!!

    28. I very much enjoyed reading this book. It's a good, solid story told quite effectively with no offensive language - that's rare and precious and very much appreciated by this reader. I would like to read more by Mandi Slack.

    29. This book was wonderful. The plot kept me reading into the wee hours of the night. The characters are endearing and it's a very clean cut book. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to reading more books from this Author.

    30. I thoroughly enjoyed this captivating book. Others have told of the plot, so I only wanted to add that it's, definitely, a page-turner, and I highly recommend it to anyone who's contemplating a purchase!
