In this book, Sellers addresses the issues of egg harvesting and cults. I really don't want to say much more in fear of giving away the plot - but if you think the idea of stealing and/or arranging to buy another woman's eggs in order to resell them to a couple desperate to have a child, just take the time to research the topic - you'll be amazed and appalled by what is going on out there.
This book brings all of that to light in the story of a young woman who is kidnapped and hidden away in a remote commune so that her eggs may be harvested.
The book is a bit slow but picks up pace rapidly and then grips you to the point you can't wait to find out how it is all going to play out.
Jackson does appear although he is not the main character - but still nice to see an old friend.
Also, the book is very well formatted - no glitches in the formatting to pull you out of the story.
Highly recommended for a good read.
This mystery was honestly the kind of story that keeps you guessing the whole way through, and then just when you think you know what is going to happen, guess what...you are thrown into another loop lol
I for one, can't wait to read more L.J. Sellers books.
I definitely recommend this great book to all who enjoy a great, fast paced mystery that grabs your attention right from page 1...and never lets it go!!!
Elizabeth herself wants to have a baby but she can not conceive a child herself due to pelvic infections she had has a child. These were probably caused by the fact she was sexual abused by her adopted father. So when she finds out that Jenna is her biological sister she sees this as the perfect opportunity for her to create the perfect baby for herself using her expertise and David Carmichael who she had met at medical school.
David Carmichael or the Reverend Carmichael as he was now known as was running a cult church he called, The Church of the Reborn. A religious commune mainly made up of female members. The church was twenty-five miles away from the nearest town hidden away in an isolated fortress. Not many people knew about the churches location, making it the perfect place for David's other work. David was also running a secret underground test-tube baby clinic to impregnate the women in the church using sperm stolen from the clinic by Elizabeth. David had become obsessed with creating life. David owes everything to Elizabeth. Elizabeth had kept him from losing his medical licence and going to jail in the past.
So when Elizabeth tells David she wants to kidnap Jenna and harvest her eggs and fertilize them and transfers them into her body, David as not choice but to go along with her plans.Read more ›
Jenna is a young and pretty restaurant manager who hasn't yet found the right guy but is ready to become a mother. So she heads to the local fertility clinic because really, as a highly paid professional with flexible hours (like most restaurant managers), why wait? Of course, the doctor at the clinic is her long-lost infertile twin. Elizabeth can't have children, but when she notices how much she and Jenna look alike, she runs a DNA test and decides to help herself to some eggs.
Well, I mean, why not?
Fortunately Elizabeth has some connections with a local cult leader with a state-of-the-art fertility clinic setup and the whole baby thief (or "baby thieves," rather) plan is put into motion. The only thing that could possibly derail things is the crack investigative skills of Jenna's new boyfriend. They had a single night together, but that was enough to ensure true love. When Jenna vanishes, it's up to (shoot, I can't even remember his name) good old reporter guy to see if he can put the pieces together before the baby thievery is complete.
The thing about this book isn't really the plot (most readers, including myself, don't approach the medical thriller genre with expectations of high realism), but the absolute dullness with which it progresses. Sellers makes an obvious effort to give her characters some dimension, but in the end it fails -- giving us two squeaky clean and boring protaganists against several over-the-top bad guys. While the exact unfolding of the plot isn't completely obvious, nothing really surprising happens.Read more ›
