Everything she’s been told about her past life is a lie…

Julia DeMarco is planning a perfect San Francisco wedding when she comes face-to-face with a famous photograph, the startling image 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 wasn’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 fiancé—are shaken by new revelations. The only person she can trust is Alex, but he has secrets of his own. Each step brings her closer to a mysterious past that began a world away—a past that still has the power to threaten her life…and change her future forever.

    " When I was partly into this book it seemed familiar like I had read it before ... but I didn't remember how it turned out so I finished it and am glad I did. It is very good ... just when you think you have it figured out another surprise pops up. I also like it because of the San Francisco location and the real places some of it took place. "

    " I enjoyed this book and found it easy to read but it was nothing special. The plot would have been better if it was written by another author perhaps. The male characters obviously were written from a female perspective and the romance was a bit cheesy. Overall an ok book, quick easy read. "

    " This wasn't my normal read but I found it at a used store and I'm glad I got it. It had me hooked by the plot. I was curious at what the ending was going to be like. The ending was not what I expected but the book was really good even though it was not a paranormal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela(AllHoney) | 10/3/2008

    " For overall plot I'd give this a 4 but the romance didn't do it for me. I'd give it more of a 2.5. I didn't feel the chemistry between the hero and heroine and I really didn't like the heroine and her selfishness. But the story itself kept me interested to the end. "
