Nevs Book Cave
“I fell in love with Mel instantly – she’s strong willed and able to take care of herself. You don’t want to get on her bad side as one of her fellow officers finds out… I found it very difficult to put down. It flows so easily and contains plenty of action. There’s plenty of twists and turns that keeps both Mel and us on our toes.”

Lucy at Bookworm Blogger 
“Double Identity was action packed from the beginning…It was great to see the inner workings of an undercover team and whilst I had guessed the big revelation the final scenes were explosive and packed a punch. I’d be interested to see where Mel’s story takes her and if she gets into anymore mischief!”

“This is one of those perfect thrillers that you just cannot put down and you keep turning the pages until you get to the end. Mel is a wonderful new protagonist who is as intelligent and tough as any of the male protagonists out there in other thriller series.”

Stefanie at The Magic of Wor(l)ds
Ran an interview when I talked about writing habits, meeting Mel, silence and pinching characters from real life (You have been warned!)

Feel The Read
“Mel’s character is a very strong, independent & confident one, someone who takes charge of their life without any other person’s assistance. I loved every bit of her.” and “The language is lucid with a rich vocabulary & few French phrases here & there. Expect a lot of action. Some parts of the mystery & its unraveling were unputdownable.”

“This was a really enjoyable, intelligent thriller with an interesting protagonist and full of intrigue and double crosses.

There’s lots of action but also lots of sifting through tedious CCTV and paperwork, making this feel a lot more realistic than some thrillers where they just know who all the players are with no work!”

Scintilla Connect
“…a high speed thrill ride of a novel, racing from twist to turn, throwing caution to the wind and characters to the wolves and readers better hold on and brace themselves” and “I found the action of the book exciting, but I also found the dilemmas faced by Mel’s heart to be compelling.”

Bookish Jottings
“Reminiscent of Evelyn Anthony’s classic tales of espionage and suspense, Alison Morton’s Double Identity is an expertly crafted and highly satisfying thriller readers will find hard to put down.”

Red Pillows
“I truly love how the characters are created in this book and Mel’s character was inspiring. She is a fresh new face and someone who is strong and can stand up for herself. I admired this in her and in the way the author made her the focus of the story.”

A Quintillion Words
“The French feel of the book was brilliant and you can instantly tell the author is from France with just how perfectly written dialogue is (not that I know any French!) This gave the book such a refreshing feel, and this didn’t seem to stop the more we get into the book. The way characters are questioned and the way the investigation played out was rather addictive to read, and the author’s character creation continued to impress me….A stunningly well put together thriller with just the right balance of action, suspense and even emotion. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future!”

Wild Writing Life
“I’ve read it in one sitting without taking too much care of what was happening in my immediate reading and non-fictional reality. I simply could not give up following Mélisende´s search for the reason and the person who killed her fiancé”

David’s Book Blurg
“Something I’ve always enjoyed about the author’s work is the use of strong female leads and boy, does Mel pack a punch! There’s more than one bruised male ego in this tale..

For me it just worked, just the right amount of twists to keep you engaged, just the right amount of characters to not overwhelm you and detailed enough to allow you to fall in love the characters and their development.

Another cracking read from Alison Morton!”

“The story was fast paced and left you hanging at the edge of most chapters – it was so hard to put down.”

Jessica Belmont
“Double Identity by Alison Morton is a book I really couldn’t set down. I definitely made the mistake of starting this one before bed, and stayed up too late trying to finish.

Mel is an awesome heroine. I love how feisty she is. She’s skilled in self-defense…. However, she’s gusty, and really intriguing to read. Underneath her hard exterior, she is vulnerable. The kind of lead I enjoy reading.
This is a fast-paced thriller. Alison Morton‘s writing is tightly knit, with the attention to detail being really impressive.”

Beyond the Books
“A story that incorporates plenty of different threads. International criminals, blackmail, fraud with a multi-agency investigation from France, the U.K and Brussels creating a whirlwind read packed with action and thrills. I do hope there is another book to come as I think we have only scratched the surface of Mel.”
