Don't Say A Word by Barbara Freethy

While preparing for her wedding, Julia DeMarco comes across a famous photograph of a little girl in front of a Russian orphanage-and sees her own eyes staring back at her. But Julia is not an orphan, nor was she adopted. She knows where she comes from-or does she? Suddenly, the people she has loved and trusted are tainted by suspicion. The one person who is willing to help her is reckless photographer Alex Manning, who will journey with her toward the dangerous truth-while trying to hide a secret of his own.

The plot was good. Two little twists that I didn't see coming. But then again, I never figure out who did it so I guess that doesn't say much. What were the twists you ask. Not telling.

Now, Julia is engaged to Michael but you can tell that she just isn't ready to marry him. Hell, you know they are not meant to be. I feel bad for Michael cause you know he must have some kind of idea that Julia is stalling and they are not meant to be.

When Julia decides to team up with Alex to find out who she is, everyone is pretty much against it. Her sister Liz and Michael tell her why dig up the past? Michael feels this is Julia's way of stalling some more. So I understand where he is coming from. Liz... oh lord.

Liz annoyed the shit out of me. She was constantly whining, showed no support and wanted Julia to take care of everything. Their father has been drinking heavily since their mother dies and Liz want Julia to take care of it. Julia finally snaps and tells Liz to be an adult. I cheered. Even at the end of the book, when Julia is telling Liz the truth about where Julia came from, "Nothing is going to be the same. You are going to forget about me" Whine whine whine.

Alex's mother was another person annoyed me. She was just trying to keep herself in the lime and twists things around to be about her. She wasn't as bad as Liz though.

Other than those two characters, I did enjoy the story. Was that really Julia in the picture? Did she find the answers to her past. Read and find out. :)

Grade: B- (cause of Kate and Liz. Mostly Liz)
