Weekend Books

Filed under: Book Recomendations,Lisa Scottoline,Look Again — susanbright @ 9:19 am

I just started…. and finished Lisa Scottoline’s novel Look Again. It was recommended by several of our bloggers (thank you Sue and Nancy!) and my daughter just happened to have the book on her shelf. Lucky me! I was looking for something juicy to read over the weekend. I call Look Again a weekend book because it is a quick easy read. Although the end is somewhat predictable, it is a good read and you will not be able to put it down.

Ellen Gleeson is a journalist and a single mother raising a three year old boy, Will whom she had adopted at the age of one and a half.  Ellen saw Will for the first time when she was doing a story in a pediatric cardiac intensive care unit. Will had just had heart surgery and Ellen found herself visiting him daily. She was his only visitor and was told that the baby’s mother was a young single girl who had not visited her son a single time since his surgery. With the help of Will’s caseworker and her attorney, Ellen was able to legally adopt Will.

One morning, while going through her mail, Ellen sees a flyer with the picture of a missing child who looks enough like Will to be his twin. The missing childs name was Timothy and he had been kidnapped! Could her Will be Timothy? Ellen’s wheels start spinning and her journalist instincts kick in. She knows that she has to investigate and find out the truth even if it means she could lose her son. This is a real page turner and you too will be able to finish it in a weekend!
