Her Good Name by Josi S. Kilpack

From goodreads: Chrissy is having an identity crisis. As a single woman and convert to the Church, she has always managed to find her place in life- at least until someone else begins using her credit cards, her bank account, and, most important, her name. Now the real Chrissy must prove her innocence against a growing pile of collection notices and unpaid bills. But with no job, no money, a warrant for her arrest, and a closet full of high-heeled shoes, a girl can only get so far.
When Chrissy meets Micah Heet, the other half of a blind date gone bad, the two discover they are facing the same battle and join forces to find the perpetrators. Little do they know that the small semblance of life they have left will be put on the line in the process.

This was a good book for me to read. The story painted a very real picture of what it would be like to live with identity theft, and went beyond what I knew about the subject. Sometimes, I'm too casual with protecting my identity, so this was a good reminder of the importance of protecting not only myself, but my family too. It's frightening to think about identity fraud and its life's altering impact. I appreciated how informative this book was, and I learned how to be more vigilant in protecting my identity. Josi Kilpack used her skilled writing to interweave this subject with other themes like putting your family first, living up to your values, and not being afraid to be yourself. I thoroughly enjoyed the original characters and the pace of this book. I felt that the ending was a little rushed, and I would have liked to see how some of the loose ends were wrapped up. But overall, I really enjoyed this book.
