Ron Raven, a successful and respected businessman, is missing and presumed dead, but this is merely the tip of the iceberg because Ron is also a bigamist. Not only has he scammed his separate families for more than two decades, he has also conned his brother-in-law out of three million dollars. As the Raven and Fairfax families struggle to come to terms with Ron’s betrayal, his daughter, Megan, and brother-in-law, Adam Fairfax, must work together to locate the missing millions.

Even though the tagline says "They had nothing in common... except their missing husband", Ron Raven's two wives take a backseat in this suspense novel. When Ron dies suddenly, it is discovered that he has two wives in two different states.

Adam Fairfax is the brother of Ron's second wife and Ron owes him three million dollars--or else Adam's bank can repossess the Wyoming ranch that belongs to his first wife.

Megan Raven is surprised at the lies and will go to any length to find out the truth--e

I like reading family sagas and Missing, the 1st book of Jasmine Cresswell’s Trilogy of is the Raven & Fairfax families and how one person’s actions bring to light so many secrets that have the most incredible repercussions.

Ron Raven, a successful businessman has, for the last twenty five years, been living a double life, shuttling between two families, who are unaware of each other’s existence. His unexplained disappearance, presumed murder is what starts raveling his bigamist and lying lif

A first rate start to a trilogy! Ron Raven has disappeared and is presumed dead and his dirty secrets are coming to light. In particular, the two families. His daughter Megan is determined to save the family ranch and has forged an allegience with the brother of her father's other wife, who holds the deed to the ranch as collateral on a loan. They follow a twisted trail to central America and fall in love in the process.

Skipped alot towards the end, got to fantasy-like, but otherwise I enjoyed this one.

I found this book in my collection of books and wasn't sure I'd read it. I'm sure now that I have and am thinking I remember holding onto the book so I'd remember to pick up the next in the series. Well, that was pre-goodreads time for me. Will I re-read it to the end? I'm not sure. I'm on page 95 and we'll see if I finish it. I remember liking it the first time through and can't recall how it ends.

This book was the proverbial train wreck I just couldn't look away from. A murdered father, missing millions, and a second family?!? I liked the suspenseful twists and turns, but the romance was unnecessary and rather tacked on. I also was a little disappointed in the ending, but there are apparently two more in the series, so perhaps that's why is seemed so abrupt.

Weird! I guess I read this book, years ago, and didn't realize until I started re-reading it. I didn't remember everything, it would just be familiar to me and I would know what was coming a few times. I don't think I read the 2nd one, but I'm not sure yet.

The second accidental re-read in one week is a reminder of why I started on this website! Anyways, it was still decent for a second read, but I don't understand Megan and Adam's relationship. They seem to bounce back and forth a lot between trust and no trust.

I tend to really enjoy mysteries and recurring character books and this book met both criteria. Jasmine Creswell's Missing, Suspect, and Payback is a trilogy that I found to be very entertaining and definitely worth the read.

Recommends it for: Romance with a bit of intrigue enthusiasts
The first in series, it captured my attention almost from the first page. Just dumps right into the action, but that action is a little hard to believe....if you're into real life. Still enjoyable as fluff piece.

This was a good book, but I had so much going on that I didn't get to enjoy it the way I might have otherwise. Did pass it along to a friend and plan on reading more Jasmine Cresswell.

The first in a trilogy -- I cannot wait for the other two. It all begins with the death of a bigamist and goes down hill from there!
