Identity - romantic suspense from the always entertaining Nora Roberts.

Morgan Albright is living outside of Baltimore juggling two jobs and is proud of all she is achieving at the age of twenty-five. Her friend Nina lives in her home to help her with the mortgage payments. She meets Luke at the bar she's working at. He's a seemingly nice guy and they start dating. But Luke (whose real name is Gavin) is a psychopath. He kills for the thrill of it as he steals women's identities. And Morgan is his ideal victim. But plans go awry, and Gavin kills Nina, sending Morgan back to live with her mother and grandmother in Vermont. While Gavin has stolen everything from Morgan, she soon realizes that he didn't steal her spirit. But Gavin can't get Morgan out of his head, and he is determined to finish what he started out to do - kill her.

Nora Roberts is one of the most reliable authors out there. She creates compelling stories filled with interesting characters. Identity may not be at the top of my Nora favorite list but it's a good book. And Morgan is someone you will surely root for. Her relationship with her mother and former-hippie grandmother is wonderful, although she kept calling them "my ladies" which for some reason annoyed me. She gets a job at a family-owned area resort and her developing love story was sweet. As despicable as the killer was, the sections devoted to Gavin were the most interesting and engaging but most of the book focused on Morgan. This book has a bit of everything - some suspense, some romance and more. There's not a lot of surprises but I was entertained. If you are a Nora Roberts fan, you'll be pleased.

Many thanks to St. Martin's Press for the advance.
