Look Again

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.
I have been meaning to check out Lisa Scottoline for a couple of years but ya know, other books got in the way first.  I checked this one out from the library and it was a very quick read.  Quite predictable with a few extra curves but very fast paced.
However, I did not really care for the main character Ellen until after the major climax of the story.  Until then she was written as a character I'm not fond of.  The character that must do it all on their own, ask no help, tell no one what they are doing etc.  It was annoying.  Things could have been different and she wouldn't have had as many issues if she would have done that.  But whatever, I didn't write the book, I just got annoyed by the main character.
After that though, THEN she was a character I could like and the story felt better.  If you are looking for a quick read this is it!
Have you read any books by Scottoline? What ones would you recommend?
