A weekly post in which I share an audiobook recommendation to add to your hitlist rotation.
Most Wanted by Lisa Scottoline
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.
The audiobook is narrated by Julia Whelan and I think she did a fantastic job bringing the characters of Scottoline’s book to life, especially Christine. She was great at emoting without going overboard. And the most important aspect: her voice was pleasant.
This is a book I would definitely recommend listening to. The story will keep you riveted and the narration really brings it to life.
Highly recommend. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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?
