Review: The Liberation of Alice Love by Abby McDonald

Alice has always played it safe. She did everything she was supposed to do….she worked hard to establish a stable if somewhat mundane career, saved diligently for a flat of her own and always made the responsible decision whenever there was a major choice to be made. However nothing could prepare her for the ultimate betrayal when someone close to her decides to methodically steal her identity and essentially become her. What will Alice do now that she is not the only Alice Love? Money, friends and perhaps even boyfriends may be up for grabs when a close friend tries to make the ultimate heist.

The Liberation of Alice Love is a great chick lit adventure with a touch of British flavor added in for extra fun. Think Bridget Jones…a little less overweight…less accident prone…and a bit more sensible – That’s Alice Love. We all have been there or know someone like Alice. They always make the smart responsible decision, don’t take  a gamble with much and live a happy life if a bit repetitive and boring at times. But what if that life were rocked to the point where you no longer could be that person? What would happen if your own identity revealed a person someone totally different than you without  you?

High quality racy lingerie, fun exotic cooking classes, new gym membership or even a new dedicated volunteer opportunity…what if your life was being lived for you- better than you were living it? Romance, travel, adventure & mystery all combine as we follow one woman’s journey  to be liberated from herself all while trying to reclaim her own identity as the real thing.

  1. This sounds like a story plucked from today’s headlines.

      Actually that was one of my favorite parts that she took something so rampant and “every day” and really created an fun, girly adventure out of it.

  2. Great review. This does sound fun!

  3. I kind of love the idea of this book. It sounds so fun. Because sometimes, don’t we all need to be liberated from ourselves? It is so easy to get caught up in the mundane that I find it easy to forget to get a little crazy and have some fun. I am definitely going to be picking up this book in the future.

    The beginning of the book started out really slow and Alice was a good character, just kind of boring. But when she decides to find out who took her identity, the book really takes off!! Alice is almost a different person, doing things she never really did before. Her little white lies slide by but compile until they blow up in her face. What would you do if someone stole your identity? I’m not sure I would go to the lengths Alice does, but I wouldn’t just do nothing either. Fraud Investigator Nathan is a nice compliment to Alice’s character, to say nothing about how attractive he is.
