The Impostor, A Love Story
on Aug. 10, 2013
Nicole is a young mother who unfortunately fell in love with the wrong guy. She had been living in relative peace with her four-year-old daughter, Jessica, until her ex got out of jail and began stirring up trouble again. Desperate to give her daughter a better life, Nicole finds an opportunity to move to Alaska. She takes her best friend, Emily, and leaves Jessica in the safety of her parents care.
As soon as they get there, I remember sighing in relief for the two. The bar/restaurant they get jobs at seems like a good place with a great boss, Bradley. Carmouche created an atmosphere that I could easily put myself into and it put me at ease.
When Dylan, the player/singer, was introduced into the story, I admit, I didn't like him for Nicole. When someone is starting over, it is not really a good time to get into a relationship. Dylan didn't seem to be anything good for Nicole. This is where a writer's brilliance is shown. My opinion of Dylan really changed over the course of the novel. I ended up really believing he wanted something real with Nicole.
This story started out as a new beginning/love story, but morphed into a hypnotizing suspense. Nicole is smart, but she's human and trusts someone she should not have. It puts her life and the lives of her friends in a deadly situation. Carmouche had me on the edge of my seat trying to direct the characters as I was reading the novel climax. When you get so emotionally involved with the characters that you actually talk to them like they will talk back, that is a sign of ingenious writing.
Carmouche gives the reader an intricate plot that keeps you guessing with each paragraph. Even with the novel written in Nicole's point of view, the reader gets a strong sense of the other characters. It was a thrilling read that had me reaching for the next book of the series, "Obsession and Sacrifice", as soon as I was done.
Thank you so much to Tiffany Carmouche for allowing me to be part of her tour and providing me with a copy of "The Impostor" in exchange for my honest review.
