It’s been a couple of months since Fina’s last big case- and if anyone deserves a break- it’s Fina. But a break is not in store. When Carl, Fina’s dad and boss, calls her to the firm- she goes. When she gets there, she finds herself in the middle of a case that she’d rather not be involved with- actually, she’d rather be doing anything else, but this case. The Ludlow’s newest client, Renata Sanchez is a single mother to two daughters- Rosie and Alexa. Renata used a sperm bank to get pregnant- and now, she wants to know her daughter Rosie’s biological father. She feels that all children, regardless of how they are conceived, need to know this information. The problem is: that when you use a sperm bank- you are agreeing to the biological father’s right to privacy- a fact that Fina tries to drive home. Carl agrees to take the case, though, because he says “the next big thing is sperm banks”.

Fina, even though she does not want the case, finds herself in the middle of it- and manages to find out who the father is. As the plan for the next steps in the case are being discussed, it’s discovered that someone has killed the man. So who was it? Was it Renata? Or someone else?

Fina doesn’t like the fact that she feels she played a role in the man’s death- so she finds herself trying to solve his murder. What Fina does not know at the time is that this murder is about so much more- this murder has many twists and turns- and everyone involved in the man’s life- from the fertility clinic to the women in his life to business folks in his life all have a reason to kill. And that’s not even counting all the children that he fathered via the fertility clinic.

Fina’s got her hands full with all that- plus, the fact that her brother wants to come back to Boston- a fact that Fina vehemently opposes and Christian, her friend with benefits, might be moving on. Also, there is a man who seems intent on making his displeasure at Fina’s butting in known every time he sees her in the most physical way.

In IDENTITY, the case moves fast- secrets are revealed and by the end, the reader will feel he/she has been on a wild ride. Buckle up, readers- Fina Ludlow is in charge- and it’s going to be a wild ride!


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Wowza. This is my second Ingrid Thoft book and I adore her. I adore her character, Fina- smart-mouthed, sassy and fun as all get out. Fina doesn’t just break the law- she does it in such a charmingly badass way that you can’t help but love her (and wish you were riding shotgun!)

The plot- oh snap! The plot was great- the mystery had many layers to it- and just when you thought Fina had all the clues she needed- there was another chapter. The characters- fleshed out; but still with enough secret layers for future books. And the chemistry between Christian and Fina- well…. their relationship is hot.

Are you looking for a book with a good mystery? Do you want a PI who has no problem breaking the rules? Want a story that has a few layers to it? IDENTITY is what you need!

Highly recommend.
