When reporter Ellen Gleeson gets a “Have You Seen This Child?” flyer in the mail, she almost throws it away. But something about it makes her look again, and her heart stops—the child in the photo is identical to her adopted son, Will. Her every instinct tells her to deny the similarity between the boys, because she knows her adoption was lawful. But she’s a journalist and won’t be able to stop thinking about the photo until she figures out the truth. And she can’t shake the question: if Will rightfully belongs to someone else, should she keep him or give him up? She investigates, uncovering clues no one was meant to discover, and when she digs too deep, she risks losing her own life—and that of the son she loves. Lisa Scottoline breaks new ground in Look Again, a thriller that’s both heart-stopping and heart-breaking, and sure to have new fans and book clubs buzzing.

She ob...
Far-fetched to the point of crazy. Many "WTF is this shit???" moments. Protagonist is mildly likeable, but doesn't seem rational in ANY aspect of her life. I will remember this one for all the wrong reasons.
Originally published at my blog Chasing Empty PavementsThis book was weird at first because I didn't think it started off that well. She used description in the wrong way, bogging down her sentences and what she was trying to get across. After the first few chapters though, things went much more smo...
Wow - what a great book! It brings me back to The Face on the Milk Carton except from another perspective. The story was intriguing, the writing was great and it was just all together enjoyable. I'd definitely consider reading more books from Lisa Scottoline, but at the 9.99 Kindle price for most of...
