Look Again by Lisa Scottoline

Having a child kidnapped is every parent's nightmare, yet how often do we pay attention to those postcards of missing children that we get in the mail? Usually they get tossed in the trash without a second thought. Ellen Gleeson gets one that she nearly throws away, but when she takes a look she realizes that the missing child looks eerily like her own adopted son. She tries to ignore it but can't and uses her journalistic skills to investigate the possibility that her son is the missing child. She ends up in much more trouble than she ever envisioned.
If you can suspend belief for a bit, then you might enjoy this quick read. If you are looking for something with a little substance to it, you might want to find something else. The plot and some of the characters are just not believable.
I have to say though, what bothered me the most was that Ellen could even consider not telling the authorities if she thought that her son was the kidnapped boy.
There was some profanity and one night where she sleeps with someone although it isn't a detailed description. Rated PG-13
