This is a great mystery with a little romance thrown in. Just when you think you have solved the mystery it takes a turn you didn't see coming. A very enjoyable book.

This is my first romantic suspense novel and I must admit I'm hooked. I was hooked from the very first page and loved the twists that came along. I thought I had it figured out half way through, but luckily I was wrong. The ending left me satisfied and looking for another of Freethy's books.

This writing by Barbara Freethy was absolutely fantastic. I could not put it down. I never suspected a thing and the story line keeps you on the edge of your seat. The love interest was very sweet but true to point: you have to do what is right for you not others no matter how much it hurts.

Good book. I would read it again.

Julie De Marco is planning a perfect San Francisco wedding when she comes face-to-face with a famous photograph, the startling inage of a little girl behind the iron gate of a foreign orphanage -- a girl who looks exactly like her. But Julia isn't an orphan. She isn't adopted. And she's never been out of the country. She knows who she is -- or does she?

Haunted by uncertainty, Julia sets off on a dangerous search for her true identity -- her only clues a swan necklace and an old Russian doll, her only ally daring, sexy photographer Alex Manning. Suddenly nothing is as it seems. The people Julia loved and trusted become suspicious strangers. The relationships she believed in -- with her mother, her sister, and her fiance -- are shaken by new revelations. The only person she can trust is Alex, but he has secrets of his own.

I love DON'T SAY A WORD. We get to go on a world wide search with Julia & Alex to find Julia's roots. The mystery has many twists and turns and some surprises too. I loved every moment of it--great mystery with just enough romance IMO From the moment Julie sees the photo of the little girl with the same necklace she has til the mystery is solved I couldn't read fast enough--now I'm wondering if we will see her sister's book?

Wonderful romantic suspense, April 22, 2006
Reviewer: bbvector, LORE Reading Group (Colorado, USA) - See all my reviews
Radio disc jockey Julia DeMarco's fiance, Michael, is pressuring her to set a wedding date. Julia's mom died six months ago, her younger sister, Liz, moved in with her and her step-dad is drinking. None of them seem to be coping very well and Julia's reluctance to commit is understandable.

But when Julia sees a famous photo taken 25 years ago of a Soviet orphan girl, she thinks *she* might be that girl, which means her concept of who she is will be altered.

Julia begins investigating by finding Alex Manning, the son of the photographer. The photographer died 25 years ago. As a free lancer, Alex has followed in his father's footsteps. Julia and Alex work together to solve the mystery.

Interesting premise and good plot with some surprising twists.
