This was a great book, up until the ending. I couldn't put it down and read it in four hours. Cresswell always delivers the reader the right amount of suspense with romance mixed in.
Jessica was found hiding under a car when she was four years old after an accident that left several people dead, including the people that were believed to be her parents. A policeman on the scene found the little girl, and believing that she was now an orphan, took her home where she was eventually adopted by his son and daughter in law.
Twenty six years later she learns the devistating news that the person she thought she was for all those years was dead seven months before the accident. With the help of her ex husband, she works to unravel the truth of her real identity. While looking for the truth, her and her ex husband, Dan, try to come to terms why their marriage didn't work out and if they can make it work once more.
I was very satisfied reading this book, but I felt a major let down when I read the last page and found that the book ended how it did. I felt that the author should have gone into more depth about Constance and Ed, and Constance's return to the world. Cresswell makes the reader root for Constance, and then leaves you feeling bereft at the end of the book.
Overall, I would recommend this book.
Jasmine Cresswell has been writing great romances for the past 10 years, but now that she's turned her pen to romantic suspense, she will captivate even more readers. This fast paced story will shock you at the onset, but if you can keep reading, you will be hooked by the tender relationship divorcee Jessica Zajak shares with her ex-husband as they unravel Jessica's supposed death. This "romance noir" is as hard-boiled as detective fiction, but here Jessica has to accept her own character flaws before she is able to sort out her mysterious past and accept her new parentage
Found at the site of a terrible car accident as a girl, a woman finds herself struggling as an adult to accept that she is not who she had thought she was all these years and she does in fact have 2 living parents! Well written, it will keep you turning pages til the end.

Now- twenty-seven years later- Jessica's fascinating if less than faithful ex-husband has come to see her, armed with some terrifying evidence. Jessica Marie Pazmany is dead. And she'd died seven months before the car crash. There are answers, and they're out there. He's determined to find them. She may not live to find them.

very excellent book. I loved it!
An interesting plot: a small child is found under the wheel of a car after an auto accident in which the two adults in the car died. She's raised as an adopted sibling in a happy family, and her childhood is good. She's an adult as the story opens, and some paperwork that's discovered in an attic seems to dispute her very existence. It's a good story, one that will keep the reader going from page to page in fascinated absorption.
LOVE EVERYTHING THIS AUTHOR WRITES!
As a child, Jessica was involved in a car accident. Believing her parents to be dead, Police Officer Gene Zajak adopts her into his family. Years later, evidence arises that indicates Jessica is not who she thinks she is. Another great Cresswell romantic mystery.
Good book. WAsn't one that I couldn't put down but it was decent.
This is a very intriguing romantic suspense.
This was a good read but not one of my favorites. The suspense was there but I just didn't connect with the characters that much. I am going to read more of this author's more recently published books in hopes of adding her to My Favorites list.
27 years ago, a car accident in which a little girl survived and the parents did not.
A cop found her & took her home to his sons family, to raise.
Her ex-husband is bringing her bad news.
A good book.
