To find her missing aunt, she has to unearth the secrets of the past. But lies and deceit run though the very heart of their town…
What started out as a promising relationship with adventurer and tycoon Alec Zavos has fizzled into an uncertain future for antiquities expert Annalisse Drury. Returning to Walker Farm in Upstate New York to see her Aunt Kate should have been a welcome homecoming and distraction. Instead, she finds the childhood home she expected to inherit is for sale, without her permission. What’s worse, Kate’s ranch manager makes a gruesome discovery in the barn: the body of an unidentified man, dead by foul play.
Annalisse turns in Alec’s direction for help. She and her aunt shelter on his estate in the Catskills while the authorities canvass the scene. But when Kate herself disappears without a trace, Annalisse fears the worst: that one of the many secrets of her hometown has ensnared her family—a secret someone is willing to kill for to keep hidden.

An exploration of what happens after happily ever after, Spent Identity carries our heroine on a personal journey that will radically impact her future. Marlene M. Bell has once again delivered an inspired suspenseful romance and a worthy sequel to Stolen Obsession.
Spent Identity is filled with enough twists and turns to make Lombard Street envious!
Marlene M. Bell certainly knows how to spin a tale – and spin it she does.
There were so many red herrings and suspects that I really had no idea until it was revealed and they weren't even on my radar! Marlene kept me connected and feeling like a part of this story.
What hits readers from the very first lines of Spent Identity is the smell. Reading Spent Identity is as much an olfactory experience as anything else. Whether an aroma emanates from food or folk or flora or fauna, readers can count on experiencing scents right along with the characters in the book."
