She learns they were placed in the Federal Witness Security Program when she was five years old. Her father was involved in an art forgery ring and testified against the mob. Brought up not to trust anyone, Olivia has a difficult time relying on U.S. Marshal Ethan Ryder to protect her, and to keep her secret.

Olivia's search for the truth leads her and Ethan across country to a family and past she doesn't remember.

At the age of ten, Ethan witnessed a brutal murder. He vowed when he grew up, he'd protect people in danger. Protecting Olivia is difficult when she won't trust him. He soon realizes his desire to protect her goes beyond doing his job, but if his judgment becomes clouded by emotions, her safety could be jeopardized.

    Upon the death of her father, Olivia is given a letter explainin

    Upon the death of her father, Olivia is given a letter explaining she and her father were placed in in the Federal Witness Security Program when she was five years old. Her father had been involved in art forgery and testified against the mob. As her life begins to unravel and her life is threatened, she finds herself once again needing the protection of the WSP. U.S. Marshal Ethan Ryder witnessed his mother’s murder at an early age. Since then he vowed he would protect people in danger. Tough, smart and attractive, he knew Olivia needed his protection but his growing attraction to her and her inability to trust could jeopardize her safety. Determined to find out the truth about her father, Ethan and Olivia travel across the country to a family she didn’t know existed.

    Romance – Check. Suspense – Check. Intrigue – Check. Great characters – Double Check! Oh yeah…this one has it all. If Identity Crisis was a movie, my bucket of popcorn would be empty and I would not have noticed. This page-turner hooked me from the very beginning. Daly delivers two solid characters in Olivia and Ethan. The romantic scenes are well done and tastefully written without the added smut in so many books these days. The add element of art was a nice touch. At times, I felt the art itself was a character. Even though there are plenty of twists and turns, the progression of the story flows smoothly never feeling rushed or jumpy. If you see the ending coming then you did a better job than I did. My jaw hit the floor in shock when finally the who-did-it is revealed.
    If your interests lay in a good solid story, look no further than Eliza Daly’s Identity Crisis.

    I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

    GREAT STORYLINE: REVIEW:  IDENTITY CRISIS is a contemporary roma

    GREAT STORYLINE: REVIEW:  IDENTITY CRISIS is a contemporary romance storyline with a little suspense, a little mystery and a little romance. Our heroine Olivia will discover that her entire life has been based on a lie when a personal letter, written from her dead father, reveals that they have been in the Federal Witness Program for close to twenty four years.  And to complicate matters, her father was involved in one of the biggest and most expensive art forgery scams involving the mob and millions of dollars in fraudulent paintings. Olivia has been schooled in the arts and now owns a very prestigious art gallery.
    As an agent with the US Marshall’s office, Ethan Ryder has already lost a fellow agent and one witness in the protective custody program.  Blaming himself for the losses, Ethan endeavors to keep Olivia Doyle safe but begins to wonder if Olivia’s own art gallery is somehow connected to her father’s past.  Hoping to keep Olivia safe, Ethan agrees to help her return her father’s ashes to the place of his birth but along the way he will lose his heart and his sense of duty when he has Olivia investigated as a possible connection to a recent series of art forgery and sales.
    Identity Crisis is a fascinating storyline of one woman’s discovery that her entire life has been built around a government lie to protect her father and herself from the mob.  Throughout the story, Olivia’s early memories are triggered by the sites and sounds of the family she never knew existed prior to a few days before. But a string of suspected burglaries, break-ins and hostage takings, all leading back to Olivia and her father’s past, has Ethan circling around Olivia fearing for her life.  When Olivia finally meets the family she never knew she had, a surprising twist in her father’s past will have Olivia wondering is she ever knew her father and if her mother’s death is to be blamed on someone close.
    IDENTITY CRISIS is a well-written storyline that brings two people together that would never have met under ordinary circumstances.  Ethan Ryder will compromise his position as a US Federal Marshall when he uncovers Olivia’s secrets as well as opening up about his own troubled past. This story is about two souls lost in a sea of pain who begin the long road to recovery when the people they once trusted most, are not whom they were once believed to be.
    If you like a storyline with a mystery as well as a little romance, Identity Crisis is for you.  There is a little foreplay, but no sex; a little romance but nothing over the top; a little suspense and a big twist in the background information revealed near the end.
