Lisa Scottoline is well-known for her “could happen to me” stories. She has a knack for writing about relevant topics that seem as if they were taken from the headlines of the local news. Her newest is no exception.
Christine and her husband are desperate for a baby. It’s the only thing she’s wanted for as long as she can remember. So when it doesn’t come easily, they try other methods. After exhausting almost every medical option available, they finally agree to use the help of a sperm donor. And it works. Christine finds herself happily pregnant and ready to settle in for the duration of her pregnancy. Until she sees something on the news that rocks her to the core.
Is it her imagination or does the recently apprehended serial killer bear a striking resemblance to the photo of their sperm donor that she carries with her? Surely it’s just a coincidence. It’s with this thought in mind that she and Marcus set out to clear things up. But every question they ask is left unanswered, leaving them with more questions. Even as her marriage to Marcus becomes dangerously fractured due to the stress of the situation, Christine sets out on her own to find out once and for all if she is in fact carrying the child of a serial killer. The question that’s always lurking in the background is, what will she do if it’s true?
This was a compelling story. There’s suspense along with family drama along with moral dilemmas. Another good one from this author!
