4-STAR REVIEW: HIDDEN IDENTITIES By Bailey Thomas

The Description

Mill Creek Mystique: Book 2
Publication Date: April 4, 2022

Clarke Dragoon has lived behind an alias to infiltrate criminal organizations to dismantle and bring them to justice. A similar tactic he’s perfected within his own life because it requires his undivided attention. The other benefit is that he can’t dwell on what’s missing from his life.

Thanks to Aimee Lang’s ex-husband, her life was shattered. Now, she must use her new identity to reinvent herself. When a string of questionable events takes place, the well-crafted lies of her new life deteriorate, exposing the horror of her past.

While Aimee’s life unravels, Clarke offers his home as a temporary respite. Sparks fly between them, causing the line between reality and perception to diminish, leaving them with life-altering decisions.

Will Clarke and Aimee be able to see past the deception to find the truth and forge a future together?

The Review

Aimee Lang has left everything behind to start a new life in Mill Creek. However, when bad things start happening, she realizes the threats from the past could put her and those around her in jeopardy. In Hidden Identities, author Bailey Thomas delivers the second installment of the Mill Creek Mystique series.

While the story is built as a standalone, I recommend starting with the first book, Trent’s Redemption. It provides a fantastic introduction to the Mill Creek community and its residents. Hidden Identities features some of the same characters, so it was interesting to check in and see how Maggie and Trent were faring.

There’s a definite attraction between Aimee and Clarke Dragoon, but they are both packing more than their share of secrets. The compromise of “no strings” guarantees some hot action, but it is temporary at best. As danger mounts and evidence points at Aimee being involved in a rash of murders, those hidden secrets come to light.

The author uses several suspenseful elements to highlight the storyline’s intensity. In the meantime, there is a strong message about the value of a community. In Mill Creek, people look out for each other.

Amy Wilson
My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
