Publisher's Summary

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 serial killer?

Great start, but...

The main idea was great and interesting, however 1/4 of the way in it just changed into something different and by the end I was like, wait...what?
The main character was not very likable, actually the same can be said of all the characters.

The narration was ok for the most part, except the narrator made a super weird voice when speaking like a man. It was extremely irritating and I never got used to it. I wish she'd just read it. No need for changing your voice, specially when it sounds so bad. Sorry.

I'd say it's PG-13. Some violence. Some mature content. Nothing explicit.

Better than I expected

I always love a good mystery and this one gave me far more than I expected.

Some reviewers have expressed that they find parts of this story implausible, but many parts rang true because I went through a similar situation with a friend. My dear friend went through assisted reproduction with donor sperm and found out her donor was a VERY bad man. We too had to do a bit of detective work to get to the truth.

All in all, this was an enjoyable story. A few twists and turns. Written with in a pregnant woman's multifaceted point of view. It inspired a few deep discussions with my husband who heard parts of the story as he worked around the house. He hates stories with unnecessary melodrama, but this tale was never really overdone and many of the characters reminded us of people we know.

I was sad to come to the end, but it was a satisfying conclusion. I tried to finish it in one day, staying up much longer than I'd planned (the story kept me entertained while I made decorations for a baby shower). Alas, my hubby and pets finally convinced me to go to bed but I woke early to hear the last 6 chapters.

IMHO, it was well worth my precious monthly Audible credit.
