New job. New town. New life.
Risky Business is big at the box office, Journey is on the radio, and Sharlah Webb’s luck is finally turning.
Or she thinks it is, until the day she comes home from her waitressing job to find police cars in her driveway and her boyfriend, Brian Lowry, in jail on drug charges.
Suddenly, she’s got all kinds of trouble. She’s broke, Brian’s family blames her for his arrest, and a hurricane is bearing down on their Texas Gulf Coast town.
Even worse, Brian refuses to cooperate with the police and won’t tell her why. It soon becomes clear that his secrets have put them both in jeopardy.
As the danger grows, so does Sharlah’s confusion. Is Brian not the man she thought he was? Can she trust the police? Brian’s family?
Should she stay put, or flee the approaching storm?
Smart and self-reliant, Sharlah embarks on her own search for answers. Then one fateful decision launches a mystery that will take years to unravel.
Identity: A novel of suspense, love and finding your true self.
I was in a reading slump when I downloaded "Identity," and it was my ticket out of the doldrums. I could barely put it down. This skillfully written book is hard to imagine as a first novel, given its excellent character development and compelling story line. Shawna Seed is an author to watch. I have just downloaded her next book, "Not in Time," and am looking forward to finding a block of reading time in case it is as hard to put down as "Identity" was. I'm betting it will be.
So worth reading!
Such a heartbreaking story, yet, so wonderful. I read it in one sitting and had trouble not crying near the end.
Wonderfully written, and worth your time. I enjoyed the story - the characters really got to me.
Check it out - it's well worth your time!
KUdos to the author.
The main character is well developed and her story is compelling. Contains some genuinely emotional moments without feeling contrived. Note: The author is a friend of mine, but that just made me harder to impress. I am impressed.
