Ms Creswell has written a trilogy releasing each book a month apart. I stumbled over this first book when I was browsing, and went back to get the last two books as soon as they were out. She has done a good job of tying the 3 books together through one story line, while each individual book can stand alone as a romance adventure. The characters come to life, the action flows and you will be looking forward to starting the next one as soon as you put the first down.
Jasmine Cresswell's MISSING is the first book in a trilogy that turns the idea of romance into a suspenseful anti-romance where bigamy transforms a previously thought happy marriage into a spiraling nightmare. Attention to characterization and an intriguing fast-paced plot makes Missing a fun and quick eye-opening read.
MISSING creates a suspenseful romance nightmare in which the mixing of business and pleasure and the consequences were disastrous! Love turns into bigamy and an unfolding, spiraling nightmare that just gets worse for all those left behind. Jasmine Cresswell juxtaposes the character of Ron, a sort of romance anti-hero in an anti-romance to the developing romance between Adam and Megan in which two opposing forces come together and build trust as they uncover the clues and experience the ramifications of Ron's deception. The clues lead Adam and Megan not to multiple locations, creating a race that extends beyond Georgia and Wyoming to Mexico. The more clues they uncover, the more entangled and deep the greed and secrecy becomes. Jasmine Cresswell creates a dramatic moment by using bigamy as the crux of the suspense while her characterization, shown in the more intimate moments between mother and daughter and other characters allow the reader to experience the emotional fallout of Ron's duplicitous life. United by financial needs and the shock of Ron`s secrets, Adam and Megan find themselves revealing their own vulnerabilities to one another. Jasmine Cresswell's MISSING combines tense suspense and riveting romantic drama in this first book of the Raven and Fairfax family trilogy.
