Overview

From #1 NY Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy offers a romantic and suspenseful tale of family secrets and international espionage.

Everything she's been told about her past is a lie ...

Julie De Marco 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 Russian 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 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 ...

"Powerful and absorbing ... Sheer hold-your-breath suspense." -- Karen Robards

"An absorbing story of two people determined to unravel the secrets, betrayals, and questions about their past. The story builds to an explosive conclusion that will leave readers eagerly awaiting Barbara Freethy's next book." -- Carla Neggars

"A page-turner that engages your mind while it tugs at your heartstrings ... DON'T SAY A WORD had made me a Barbara Freethy fan for life!" --Diane Chamberlain

    Not Thrilled!

    I was very disappointed with this book! I read the reviews and was really looking forward to getting started. I had to force myself to continue reading, the writing itself was kind of lame...corny...I don't know how else to say it. Might appeal to a much younger audience. I've been reading for over 1/2 of my life and I like a book with more substance (as far as the writing). The story was ok, but it kind of felt like I had borrowed a book from my daughter (if I had one) or a teen-age friend?! Not that I don't like love and suspense but if your wanting something to immerse yourself in...this is not it!

    Great romantic mystery, not at all predictable. The writing was good and the ending was very satisfying and surprising.

    starts out good...

    but then gets really cheesy. I became very annoyed w/main character, Julia. I don't understand why the author felt compelled to make her talk constantly...and say the strangest things. I don't know, I thought the story/plot was really good, but I didn't enjoy the small talk throughout the book. I felt a lot was unneccesary and out of place. It was like Julia was just talking for the sake of talking and most of it didn't fit with what was going on in her life. This book is long so it just grated on me about half-way through. oh well. others seem to enjoy so to each his own :)

    Excellent story and characters!

    Barbara Freethy did an excellent job building both the storyline and the characters in Don't Say A Word. It was a quick read but I was sad when it was done. This is my second Freethy book and they have both been excellent. I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.

    Easy on the brain

    Although i tend to like books with a bit more "meat" or substance to them, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was "light", an easy, yet interesting read. Not too taxing on the brain. You know, sometimes that's all you want or need! I liked the twists and turns (although I knew who the bad guy was way before he was revealed)...I liked the main characters...i found them believable , although sometimes their conversations were corny....if you want a good, interesting, book but not one that is "deep" and "intellectual", what i would call a great beach or vacation book, this is the one!!

    Loved It!

    It was sooo good! I couldnt put it down! I loved this book so much! The only complaint i have is that the ending seemed a little sudden and abrupt at first, but after a couple of seconds, it doesnt feel all that sudden anymore. Its all good. I LOVED this book!
