Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline will surely be wanted by her fans.

Most Wanted, Lisa Scottoline's recently published novel will surely be most wanted by her legion of fans. It is just as likely to satisfy others as well. Lisa is a master storyteller. She tells tales of family love, usually with strong women who are pursuing a goal.

In Most Wanted that goal is to have a child, a desire that most women relate to at one point or another in their lives. There is a problem. Christine, our spirited protagonist, and Marcus, her husband, cannot conceive. Adoption? Surrogacy? The couple decides on the later. 

And so the process begins: 
                                                     Donor 3319 Profile:
                                                                  Tall. Blonde. Blue eyes. 
                                                                   Medical Student.

Perfect. Until a very happy, very pregnant Christine wakes one morning to watch the news. At that point her donor profile takes a turn: 

                                                     Donor 3319 Profile:
                                                                  Tall. Blonde. Blue eyes. 
                                                                  Medical Student.
                                                                  Wanted for Serial Murder.

Thus begins the heart of this story. Is it the same man? If so, is the tendency to murder carried in the genes? What should the couple do? 

This is a quick read even though it is 417 pages long. As soon as the complication was presented I, along with Christine wanted to know...is it him?  After several turns, we finally learn the answer, but you will not hear it from me.  Read Most Wanted. Learn the truth for yourself. You will be glad you did. 

I was gifted an early readers edition from the publisher. That in no way influenced my review.Thank you, St. Martin's Press.  The book is now available at major outlets and online.
