    One thought on “Most Wanted”

    1. I received an ARC of this book from St. Martin's Press through a First Reads giveaway. Thank you to both. I had never read anything by this author and, based on the book description, was really looking forward to this story. Sadly, this book was very disappointing to me.The entire storyline was just so implausible to me. Usually if I struggle with the foundation of the story I can overlook it if the book is well-written and has strong characters. Unfortunately, the entire time I was reading thi [...]

    2. I finished this book a few days ago and I had to take some time to gather my thoughts. This is the first book I’ve read from Lisa Scottoline and obviously I was expecting a different experience. Who picks up a book hoping they don’t like it? My biggest issue with the storyline was how unbelievable it felt. I totally get this is a work of fiction, but I still want to feel like the situation I’m thrown into is plausible in some capacity. On top of that, I can’t get over this nagging though [...]

    3. Remember when you were a little kid and you'd get into squabbles that went like this: is not, is to, is not, is too, is not, is too? Now imagine an entire novel like this.Chapter 1--Christine sees a recently arrested serial killer on the news and thinks he looks like the photo of the anonymous sperm donor who is the biological father of her fetus. Her husband says the killer is not their donor. Is too. Is not. Is too. Chapter 2--The best friend is brought in for a consultation. Nah, it's not him [...]

    4. This review can also be found at Carole's Random LifeI am a long time fan of Lisa Scottoline so it pains me to say that this book missed the mark for me. I haven't read all of Ms. Scottoline's novels but I have read quite a few over the years and this one is my least favorite of the bunch by a lot. I just found the entire plot of this book to be utterly ridiculous. I really tried to just go with it but throughout the book there was a little voice in the back of my head telling me that nobody wou [...]

    5. “Assassins take no pride in fighting fairly. We take pride in winning.”-----Robin HobbLisa Scottoline, the award-winning New York Times bestselling author, pens an enticing and thrilling story of lies, suspense and truth in her new crime-fiction book, Most Wanted that traces the journey of a woman who after long struggle became pregnant, only to find out that the sperm donor is actually a serial killer and now she must travel to the end of the earth to find out the truth on whether the donor [...]

    6. Can you imagine the thing you want most in the world could potentially turn into a psycho killer based on their genetic makeup? Christine Nilsson doesn't have to imagine but she does have to investigate. After seeing the capture of a serial killer dubbed the "Nurse Murderer", Christine's picturesque idea of finally having the baby and family she's most wanted, could simply become a nightmare. Christine and Markus Nilsson are unable to conceive children and enlist the help of fertility specialist [...]

    7. I started this book a few days ago, and I'm stopping on page 82 because it's become A Book I Want to Hurl Against The Wall. The husband is a Total Alpha Asshole, for starters, talking over his wife, the female genetic counselor at the fertility clinic who has a masters and 20 years experience, the female therapist at the fertility clinic who's been working with them, and the female at the sperm bank he talked to--er, yelled at on the phone the night before when she told him that, because of ***t [...]

    8. Well I got to the halfway mark on this one and can’t go on any further. Firstly, it is not the story I was hoping for. Christine and Marcus are expecting a baby that has been conceived with sperm from an anonymous donor. They have seen the donor’s profile and photo but do not know his identity, until Christine sees a newsflash showing the arrest being made of a suspected serial killer. She just “knows” that is their sperm donor. So far, so good. I really thought this might turn out to be [...]

    9. Christine Nelson has wanted nothing more than to be a mother. When she and her husband, Marcus have trouble conceiving, they use a sperm donor in order to have their child. Soon after Christine finds out she's pregnant, a news story comes on about a serial killer who is killing nurses. The killer looks a lot like their sperm donor and Christine will not rest until she finds out the truth. Traveling from Connecticut to Pennsylvania, she uses all her available resources to find out who the father [...]

    10. I received this book as an ARC - thank you! I've read and enjoyed books by this author in the past, but this one didn't do it for me. The premise is wildly unbelievable and the protagonist comes across as dumb (regarding someone mentioning a postmortem photo - "you mean, like, dead?") and not especially likeable. The husband character is a whiny brat. The only character I related to was the grumpy lawyer who didn't want to be bothered with this nonsense.

    11. This book follows Christine who is recently pregnant with her first child and going to be stopping working so she can raise her child. Christine and her husband Marcus ended up conceiving via a donor after many trying months. Christine and Marcus have hidden the fact that they ended up using a donor from most people.My one favorite part about the book was the mystery itself. The author did a great job unraveling the clues of what was going on. I did want to keep reading the book until I figured [...]

    14. The story started off with a bang- the couple found that their sperm donor might be a serial killer. What a dilemma! My interest was piqued and I settled down to enjoy the ride. Alas, The story just went south from there. The characters were just so unbelievably irritating. There were too many impractical scenarios and the fairytale ending just makes it worse.That said, the subject matter was interesting. I learned a few things about the eggs and sperms donation industry. If only the story goes [...]

    15. I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. Here is that review:I previously had only read the "Rosato and Associates" series of books by Lisa Scottoline, so I was a little disappointed that this was not one of those. But I was also disappointed in the story and the style. I couldn't figure out what this book was trying to be - chick lit, an adventure story, a mystery? It went in a lot of directions and I just ended up plowing through to the end. It t [...]

    16. A good summer read. About half way through I thought to myself, "I know where this going." Wrong. Later I thought I knew who the bad guy was. Wrong. Ok, I know how this is going to end. Wrong again. It was nice to read a book that I was totally in the mood for AND it wasn't predictable.My only negative was with the main character. Everything she did she got lucky, from lying about who she was and believed, given the benefit of the doubt to gaining information. ButI liked her.On a personal note: [...]

    17. This is the second book of Lisa Scottoline's that I have read. It started off really strong. The fact that she touches on a subject many people in the world live through everyday: infertility is completely a new angle. We find out that it's not always a easy road getting what you wish for. The book is very interesting indeed. Slow at some points but get your detective thinking cap on. Also be prepared to cry if you are a person who connects with characters easily. I even shed a few tears. The en [...]

    18. Christine, finally pregnant, is overjoyed with the prospect of being a mother, and plans to be a stay at home mom. By a random coincidence, a news blurb on the TV while they are cleaning up from the party her fellow teachers threw her, rocks her to the core. A man arrested as a possible serial killer looks just like the picture of the sperm donor they used. The donor chose to remain anonymous, and the sperm bank refuses to disclose the name of the donor. Christine's husband, Marcus, is disturbed [...]

    19. So a serial killer walks into a sperm bank and…er, yeah. It does sound like the beginning of a dirty joke. Let me start again.Say that your whole life, your womb cried out for occupation. Tiny pink socks and fuzzy blankies and Pampers commercials make you break out in hives of anticipation. But after years of trying, you realize that your true love is, well, let’s just say his little swimmers are not swimming, they’re not even in the water, they’re up on the beach having a mojito or mayb [...]

    20. I listened to this book a couple of weeks ago, and I’m still thinking about it. It’s such an intriguing premise, this idea that the person behind the DNA could be a serial killer and the potential future effects this could have on your child. I alternated between thinking Christine was going too far and wondering how I’d be reacting if I were in the same situation (Would I dare to that far? Would I go even further?). I love it when a book leads to this type of dichotomy within my reaction. [...]

When the pregnancy is a couple of months along, a news story flashes on the TV about a serial killer arrested in the murders of 3 nurses.

    24. Wow, what a creepy subject. Oh the emotions running through my head while reading this. It was crazy. And then during the book, was he innocent or was he not, I felt like my brain was in a tennis match as I would go back and forth with the answer to that question. This book definitely held my interest and was another one that kept me up past my bedtime because I couldn't put it down. I just had to know! Also, I must say by this point, I was so put off by the baby's "father" and his ego that I di [...]

    25. I received a copy of this book from net galley in exchange for an honest review. I enjoy Lisa Scottoline's writing style and typically really enjoy what I've read of her work, but Most Wanted just didn't work for me. I like the initial premise, shock and disturbing questions about what would happen if you were inseminated by someone accused of being a serial killer, but after that, the story took a turn for the unbelievable for me. I suppose I appreciated Christine's tenacity, but her actions an [...]

    26. What a disappointment! I cannot remember the last time I read a book as anticlimactic as this one. What was the point really? Terrible plot development, no twists, no surprise, just a boring novel any amateur could have scripted.

    27. I won this book through . I enjoyed it. It was very suspenseful til the end. I would highly recommend it!!!

    28. Well if I am admitting to skimming chapters, it is not good! Only die hard fans of this author would love this. Really treated infertility like an illness and then the story was so out there. And this story could've been a good hundred pages less just in how it is overwritten. Everything was extra described. She washed her hair using Moroccan oil for extra shine.(pointless and no value to story) she walks into a building then a whole paragraph describing the lobby (pointless and no value to stor [...]
