I really enjoy Lisa Scottoline's books. This was not my favorite--it took a little while to get going--but it was still a good, entertaining read.

Pediatrician Jill Farrow is finally moving on with her life. She’s got a fabulous fiancé named Sam who just adores her daughter Megan, and she’s found happiness in her life once again after her miserable divorce from William three years ago. That is until her grown up, ex-step-daughter Abby shows up on her doorstep in the middle of the night with the shocking news that Jill’s ex-husband has been found dead from an alcohol/drug overdose that the police are calling accidental. In a state of hysterics, Abby refuses to believe her father would ever mix alcohol and drugs and will Jill please, please, please help her find out the truth about her father’s death. Meanwhile, Abby’s older sister Victoria (Jill’s other ex-step-daughter) wants nothing to do with Jill or her help and tells her and the police that Jill needs to back off. Torn between her past and future, Jill’s maternal instincts for Abby eventually kick into full gear, leaving Megan and Sam behind to deal with issues of their own. Sam doesn’t feel Jill owes Abby anything and he’s not really sure he’s looking to include “ex-stepchildren” in his future plans. Megan has lost her mom’s focus and it throws her thirteen-year-old world off its axel. This is a fast paced read that keeps the story moving right up until the surprising end. Reviewed by DH

My first read of Lisa Scottoline, I enjoyed it. I like the everyday-like telling of the story. It was a bit far-fetched as others have said, but for it being the first I read of hers, I really enjoyed it and have already started on her earlier books!

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

When do you stop being a mother? An easy answer if a child is yours but what about an ex-step child? Can you divorce a child? Scottoline's answer to that last question is a resounding NO in her most recent novel which is better than her previous novels "Save me" and "Look again". A bit more believable plot and most of the characters are well-rounded (even the MAN!). A bit frenetic as the main character rushes to 1. solve a mystery, 2. prevent a patient from dying and 3. avoid being killed. But tons of fun and one of the fastest reads of the summer.

A far-fetched plot with some frustrating characters and an unrealistic ending that was extremely sappy and managed to tie up every single loose end. The writing at times was not up to the standards that I would expect from a published author. That said, it was actually a pretty good page-turner.
