Book Description

8 July 2010

Will the real Alice Love please stand up?

Alice Love keeps her life running in perfect order, so when her bank card is declined, she thinks it's just a simple mistake. But she soon discovers that someone has emptied every penny from her bank account, spending her hard-earned savings on glamorous holidays, sexy lingerie, and a to-die-for wardrobe and leaving Alice with thousands of pounds' worth of debt.

With her perfectly-organised world crumbling around her, Alice enlists the help of dashing fraud investigator, Nathan, and sets about clearing her name. But as she unravels the intriguing paper trail, she makes a shocking discovery: her thief is closer to home than she ever imagined.

Following the clues from London to Rome and LA, Alice edges deeper into a seductive new world, where honesty might not be the best policy, rules are made to be broken, and the power of a gorgeous cocktail dress shouldn't be underestimated. Perhaps her alter-ego's reckless, extravagant lifestyle is the one Alice should have been leading all along...

But as her little white lies begin to stack up, how far will Alice go to find the truth? And whose life, exactly, is she fighting for?

Review

"I loved The Liberation of Alice Love. It had everything needed to make a fantastic read: a great (unique) plot, great writing and a really great lead female character who, along with her stunning red dress, adds up to a fantastic read. This is an absolute must-read for all chick lit fans ... I was soon fully engrossed. Abby McDonald is certainly an author to keep an eye. 5 stars" (Chick Lit Reviews)

3.0 out of 5 stars Some lack of ending 5 Nov 2013
By Rachel
Format:Paperback
I'm not sure really what to make of this book. While it was an enjoyable read the main character made me angry with some of the stupid things she did. Instead of reporting to police that she had found the person who had stolen her identity she followed her around the world impersonating her instead - which in itself is both hypocritical and a crime. Many of the other characters were also unlikeable and the plot could have been condensed at lot further. There was far too much rambling and far too much of Alice being a complete pushover. She never really gets over this despite chasing people around the world, and never really sticks up for herself. The end just seemed to happen and there was no real conviction to it. Very much chick-lit which I don't mind and often enjoy, but it needs to have a point to it which this one didn't seem to have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fun - but room for improvement 22 Jan 2012
By a fan
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed the premise of the stolen identity, even though it did bear more than a passing resemblance to the episode of Friends when the same issue happens to Monica. However, the author didn't seem to know where to take this, and that felt a little disappointing.
It was a good read, and I did enjoy it, looking forward to picking up the next chapter in her adventures, but I really feel that the reader was left wanting more.
It's good escapism, and an ideal holiday read, but I just keep thinking how much better it could have been with a bit more direction at the end.
I would recommend it as a good fun chick lit - An enjoyable read, with lots of "nice" characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars As empty as Ms Love's bank account 8 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
The characters in this story were as shallow as I've read in a very long time. The plot was just not plausible and in many ways, although trying to highlight the perils of identify fraud, this book actually justified it quite a bit. Very boring and unbelievable story line.

4.0 out of 5 stars good, but.. 29 Nov 2010
By Sammij
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Now i did enjoy this book - the frustrations with being a victim of identity theft i know all too well but i just didn't warm to Alice at all, found her a bit weird and i can't really put my finger on on why.

Also the story with Julian clearly had a back story to which we weren't privvy to and the ending was far too quick - felt like the author became a bit bored herself.

But still a good read and would buy another book buy this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent read 5 Sep 2010
By S. A. Broadhurst VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
A person's worst nightmare is to find your identity has been stolen. What would you do if you found someone had stolen your money, your savings and even your life? This is the situation Alice Love finds herself in when her bank card is declined. She becomes a detective, determined to discover who and why her life has been stolen.
As Alice discovers her 'friend' was responsible for the disappearance of her money, she delves deeper into the mind of her alter ego following the paper trail left behind. The trial takes her to Italy and even a few hours in an Italian Police Station.
Alice slowly begins to think like her alter ego, dress like her and even following her to LA on a possible lead. She finds herself love with the man who has been helping her to find the person and reason her life has been turned upside down.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to all. This was another book I couldn't put down once I had started it. I was completely taken into Alice's life and her determination to find out the answers to all her questions about why it had happened to her and the reasons why. The book is another great summer read and tackles a subject who is getting more and more headlines as people find their bank account wiped out. However, the following story is not about the crime but about the journey of discovery Alice makes and how her life takes a complete turn following Alice's belief in her own worth and career wishes. Alice finds the strength to follow her dreams and stand up to her boss who is preventing her from develop her career in her own way.
I would recommend this to all for a great summer read!! I look forward to reading more books by this up and coming author in the future.
