A woman vanishes a few hours after a corpse is discovered in her barn, sending her niece into a frenzy and a team of investigators on her tail in the exciting mystery novel, Spent Identity (Annalisse Series Book 2) by Marlene M. Bell. While her boyfriend, Alec, is away on a business trip, Annalisse goes home for the weekend to see her Aunt Kate. Upon Annalisse's arrival, the hired hand discovers a body in the barn. No one recognizes the man, but when Annalisse reads his name off his business card, Kate blanches. Forced to evacuate the property, Annalisse and Kate go to Alec's home. Evading questions, Kate goes to Alec's horse stable to be alone. Alec returns early, and together he and Annalisse go to the barn to talk to Kate. When Kate isn't there, and no trace of her can be found on the property, Annalisse is alarmed. Convinced that Kate's disappearance is linked with the barn murder, Alec hires his best detectives to find her. Who is the man? What secret is Kate hiding?

Filled with suspense and intrigue, Spent Identity (Annalisse Series Book 2) by Marlene M. Bell is the thrilling sequel to Stolen Obsession. This sensational novel is a riveting sleuth whodunit that has all the aspects of a brilliant murder mystery. Opening with a homicide and a missing person, the story builds to a dramatic finale. Secrets, lies, deceit, abduction, and murder are cleverly woven together to create a stunning plot. Although it is the second book in the series, it does perfectly well as a stand-alone. Caught up in the story, I never once got lost or confused. It is a fantastic mystery novel with engaging characters that will capture the hearts of amateur sleuth fans everywhere.
