"Spellbinding. Another tour de force from Scottoline. It drew me in, in a single breath." -Mary Kubica, bestselling author of The Good Girl

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

Christine Nilsson and her husband, Marcus, are desperate for a baby. Unable to conceive, they find themselves facing a difficult choice they had never anticipated. After many appointments with specialists, endless research, and countless conversations, they make the decision to use a donor.

Two months pass, and Christine is happily pregnant. But one day, she is shocked to see a young blond man on the TV news being arrested for a series of brutal murders--and the blond man bears an undeniable and uncanny resemblance to her donor.

Delving deeper to uncover the truth, Christine must confront a terrifying reality and face her worst fears. Riveting and fast-paced with the depth of emotionality that has garnered Lisa Scottoline legions of fans, Most Wanted poses an ethical and moral dilemma: What would you do if the biological father of your unborn child was a killer?

This was an OK read. I got through it fairly quickly. The story was a little unrealistic and I felt Christine went way beyond what someone would actually do in the same situation. The ending was rather abrupt and seemed rushed.

Not my favourite Scottoline book but okay. The ending was predictable. It was just okay...

Reading Lisa Scottoline stand-alones is a lot like eating donuts. So good while you're eating them but afterwards soooo much regret. Newly pregnant Christine Nilsson is watching the news when she sees a man arrested for a serial killing and recognizes him as her sperm donor. Proactive (or nutcase) Christine confronts him in prison and decides he's innocent (he has to be, otherwise her baby would be tainted). She gets him a lawyer, investigates and on and on. Books like this drive me crazy with how incompetent they make the police out to be. And don't get me started with how poorly the author paints her male characters. Christine's husband is a real putz (but girlfriends are golden). Scottoline's also getting lazy with her writing. She must have used "made a beeline" at least 4-5 times and she always has some factual errors that are minor but make me crazy.

Most Wanted got me thinking about different things. How would I feel if I couldn't have kids? Which psychological disorders are hereditary? If I used donor sperm what would I want to know about the donor? What if the donor is a serial killer??
Is donor 3319 the Nurse Killer? Sometimes I was convinced he was and sometimes there was more than reasonable doubt. But it kept me engaged throughout

Most Wanted - What would you do if the sperm donor for your unborn child was a serial killer? Another great read from Lisa Scottoline.

In general I like Lisa Scottoline's books and this one was no exception. However, the plot seemed rather bizarre. Granted in today's reproductive world it was realistic; but somewhat melodramatic. It was only because of Scottoline's talents as a writer that she manged to keep the thread of the plot and the characters together.

Main character comes across as naive and foolish. Ridiculous and boring.

I was disappointed in this book. The story dragged on and on. I didn't feel invested in the characters, who seemed two-dimensional. I gave up reading at p50 and flipped to the last few chapters (thankfully short) to discover whether the donor was a killer or not. Truthfully, I just didn't care but felt obliged to do so, in case someone wanted to discuss the book.

The premise of the book was really intriguing. What would you do if you were in this situation? I would have liked to see more dialogue between the Christine and Marcus vs her running off and becoming a quasi-private investigator. In books where there is a strong female lead, it seems too easy to make the book all about Christine. There were moments that were a little over the top but I did find myself wanting to know how the book would end. Overall, it's a very quick read.
