When the rock star she idolized responded to her e-mail, Candi was thrilled. When he started to flirt with her, she thought all her dreams could come true. The fantasy takes over her entire life, but none of it is true. The man of her dreams is not a rock star at all, but a bored office worker whose internet game quickly spins out of control.
This is a great premise for a novel. I love that Laura Lee was able to continue to build on it and take it to places I wasn't expecting. You have an online meeting that is not what it seems. Someone pretending to be someone else, but then everything takes an even bigger turn.
There are a ton of twists and surprises that will keep you as a reader invested until the very end. A solid Fiction novel in general with wonderful characters both likable and non-likable. Even those with their faults who you weren't supposed to like were just very well developed overall.
In addition to Identity Theft, I am the author of more than 20 books, the novel Angel, the children's book A Child's Introduction to Ballet, the forthcoming Around the World in 80 Cliches and the forthcoming Oscar's Ghost, which tells the story of the postumous battle over Oscar Wilde's legacy by two of his closes friends, and numerous non-fiction titles including Blame it on the Rain (Harper Collins), Don't Screw it Up (Reader's Digest), Savior Faire (Wellfleet Press), The Encyclopedia of Aggravation (Black Dog and Leventhal), Blame it on the Rain (Running Press), and The Elvis Impersonation Kit (Black Dog and Leventhal).
