Look Again is every mothers nightmare. Imagine jumping through all the hoops of adopting a child. When that day finally comes that the child is fully yours you are... ecstatic beyond belief. (I have friends who have adopted - I have seen this first hand). This child becomes as much your own as if you had birthed him or her yourself. You know their every expression, their likes, dislikes, joys, and fears... and you love them so much you think your heart can hold no more...

Now imagine that something, or someone... can come along and take away that pure joy.

Ellen is a protagonist you can route for. She is a strong independent single mom, doing the best she can between work and home. It is apparent in this reading that home is the most important of the two as her whole life revolves around Will.

The storyline is consistently updating, but at first it was not at a pace that held me captive. You spend time learning about where Ellen works, her co workers (BOO!!!! to one of them....) and her hot boss Marcelo (double kudos to Lisa Scottoline for coming up with that name.... it oozes hotness, it really does!) for the first half of the book I could have continued on or put it down... I was not overly committed, mainly I think because I had a feeling as to where it was going.

Well... color me wrong. Once all starts to come together the books pace takes on a fast trot and now I do not want to put it down. Every page, reveals a new twist, a new turn... what I think is about to happen... doesn't... what does, is something totally left field... totally...


As I flew to the end of this book, tears on some pages, anger on others... I fully appreciated what Lisa Scottoline invested into this book. It is smart and clever. I did not see it coming...
