Book Review: Crisis of Identity by Denise Moncrief

Crisis of Identity (Crisis #1) by Denise Moncrief 
Genre: Adult (Suspense/Romance)
Date Published: January 26, 2013
Publisher: 5 Prince Publishing

Tess Copeland is an operator. Her motto? Necessity is the mother of a good con. When Hurricane Irving slams into the Texas Gulf coast, Tess seizes the opportunity to escape her past by hijacking a dead woman’s life, but Shelby Coleman’s was the wrong identity to steal. And the cop that trails her? He’s a U.S. Marshall with the Fugitive Task Force for the northern district of Illinois. Tess left Chicago because the criminal justice system gave her no choice. Now she’s on the run from ghosts of misdeeds past—both hers and Shelby’s.

Enter Trevor Smith, a pseudo-cowboy from Houston, Texas, with good looks, a quick tongue, and testosterone poisoning. Will Tess succumb to his questionable charms and become his damsel in distress? She doesn’t have to faint at his feet—she’s capable of handling just about anything. But will she choose to let Trevor be the man? When Tess kidnaps her niece, her life changes. She must make some hard decisions. Does she trust the lawman that promises her redemption, or does she trust the cowboy that promises her nothing but himself?

Crisis of Identity is the first book in the Crisis series by Denise Moncrief. Tess is a kick butt character. I seriously think she can survive anything. She has sense and is resourceful, and she knows how to use it all to her advantage. There was so much going on in this story with murders, human trafficking, good cops, bad cops, bad people. Whew! I still don't know who to trust completely, and neither does Tess. Then you have Trevor and Jake... These two could make it hard on a girl. Are they good? Are they bad? Can she trust either of them? I was completely drawn into this book from the first few pages.

Crisis of Identity by Denise Moncrief was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Check out my review of the next book in this series!

Want to know a little bit more about Denise? She's a Southern girl who has lived in Louisiana all her life, and yes, she has a drawl. She has a wonderful husband and two incredible children, who not only endure her writing moods, but also encourage her to indulge her writing passion. Besides writing romantic suspense, she enjoys traveling, reading, and scrapbooking.

Accounting is a skill she has learned to earn a little money to support her writing habit. She wrote her first story when she was a teen, seventeen handwritten pages on school-ruled paper and an obvious rip-off of the last romance novel she had read. She's been writing off and on ever since, and with more than a few full-length manuscripts already completed, she has no desire to slow down.
