it was amazing

When life is going too good, it can’t last…

It all started when Ellen picked up the mail and saw her son’s image, not for some achievement, but as a missing child. Stunned and disbelieving she tries to put the picture out of her mind, but it creeps back in at the worst times. Ellen, a reported, first met Will as a sick and abandoned baby left at a local hospital. Her story touched many hearts, especially her own, it was love at first site. When Will was well enough to come home, she adopted him. Now three, he is healthy, loves his cat, Oreo Figaro and is the joy of Ellen’s life. Just like any three year old, Will has ups and downs, good days and bad, but mommy is the one that makes it all better. Ellen is a person that every mother can relate to. Her feelings are open and readable, no matter how hard she tries to hide them.

Look Again is definitely a page turner! Deception is woven into the story from different angles making it hard to predict. The chapters are short but the suspense builds as Ellen is thrown into a spiral of mass confusion, half truths, and lies. The writing will keep you spellbound and the flow is like a raging river pulling you along. You will meet well rounded characters, some loveable and others from your worst nightmare. The story is strong, written with detailed descriptions that open your mind. You can see the story unfolding as if you were there. In fact, as the reader you can’t help becoming a silent sidekick, trying to guess what’s coming. It is an emotional rollercoaster so buckle-up and hang on tight.

Look Again is the best book I have read in ages, clean, emotionally engaging, and great writing. I do have one caution…don’t starting reading at midnight, you won’t get to sleep!
