A woman adopts a sick child and later thinks she sees the child on a missing child flyer. Lots of twists and a very good story. I will definitely look for more books by this author.

This is a departure from the usual style of Lisa Scottoline, and my "Target" cover was different...much better...BUT, this was a fabulous read. I couldn't put it down...just when I thought everything had been solved, it was midway through the book...and the "game" changed again. What woud YOU do if the son you thought was yours might have been kidnapped before you adopted him? Would you tell? Or leave well enough alone?

This was a different book than Lisa usually writes its not about lawyers.Its a very good book action all the way through.I won't go into the whole story see it above.It was a book I couldn't put down, the story is so engaging its sucks you in from page one and doesn't let up till the end!The twist and turns it takes keep you on the edge of your seat.Well written as,you've come to expect from Lisa Scottoline.

Couldn't put this one down. Adoptive mother sees a "have you seen this child" postcard that looks exactly like her son. She starts investigating the circumstances of the lost boy and thinks that it's her child. Lots of plot twists and surprises as the truth comes out.

Lisa Scottoline's thriller, LOOK AGAIN, tells the story of a journalist who adopts a baby only to discover three years later that the adoption may not have been legal and that the child's biological parents may still be searching for their missing son. This was my first Scottoline novel, and I expected it to be another less-than-thrilling thriller, as I think most thrillers are. So-called thrillers usually spend the first 100 or even 200 pages painting a picture of the thrills to come. Not so with LOOK AGAIN. As every book that bills itself as a thriller should do, this thriller started the suspense on page one. LOOK AGAIN is one of those rare "not-put-downable" books, and I highly recommend it.

I thought this book was terrible. The only reason I kept reading it was because I didn't have any other books on my nightstand. S-L-O-W and predictable, only picking up at the end. Although an intriguing idea for a story, I found some of the plot lines unrealistic. This was not my first book by this author- maybe the third. Won't be picking up another one.

I have never read anything by Lisa Scottoline before, though I knew about her. A friend of mine recommended Look Again and now I will recommend it. This was a very well written mystery surrounding a news report/mother instincts. Ellen Gleeson has adopted a little boy three years ago. All is wonderful until a flyer is in her mail showing a picture of another child that has been kidnapped. Immediately Ellen sees the resemblance and her investigative mind goes to work in search of the truth.But be careful what you wish for because you may not like what you get.The book kept you going until the very end when several twists make the story even more exciting. Fast and furious is what Look Again is and I loved it.

Ellen's adopted son looks remarkably like the picture on a postcard that arrives in the mail of a baby kidnapped two years ago, and she starts to wonder about it all. She's a newspaper reporter and cannot resist finding out more. The book is a real page turner and I couldn't put it down. The characters are developed and the author makes you care deeply about them. Excellent.

Easy read. Fast paced. Slightly better than many beach book mysteries. Enjoyed it.
