Sometimes we read to experience emotion, learn, or see our human experience reflected back to us. The Blonde Identity by Ally Carter is not that book, but it is a rollicking good time.
I was sucked in from the very beginning:
“Here’s the thing about waking up with no memory in the middle of the night, in the middle of the street, in the middle of Paris: at least you’re waking up in Paris. Or so the woman thought as she lay on the cold ground, staring up through a thick layer of falling snow at the Eiffel Tower’s twinkling lights.”
Just as our heroine contemplates taking a nice, satisfying nap in the snow, she is scooped up by a man who calls her Alex. It will turn out her name is not Alex; she is mistaken for her double-agent sister. I know, I know, amnesia and mistaken identity all in the first few pages, but did I mention how irresistibly fun this book is?
Not-Alex and Jake Sawyer – the operative who has been searching for Alex – embark on a multi-country adventure of twists and turns that manage to be hilarious every step of the way. Oh, and the chemistry between these two. Yowsa.
It might be Jake who has the training, guns, and safehouses, but Not-Alex has a brain that won’t quit and a mouth that won’t stop, and I absolutely adored her.
If you take a chance on this novel, and I sincerely hope you do, I’m happy to report that there is a sequel in the works.
