Donor 3319. Tall. Blonde. Blue eyes. Medical Student. Wanted for Murder.
For quite some time, Christine Nilsson and her husband, Marcus, have tried to get pregnant. After going from one appointment to the other with specialists, research, and therapy, Christine and Marcus finally decide to seek a donor.
After two months, Christine is finally pregnant. She’s happy and ready to start a family. But during her farewell party at her school—where she teaches literacy to children—she sees on the news a young, blond man being arrested for a series of murders. What shocks Christine is that the man has an uncanny resemblance to her donor. Christine soon becomes obsessed with the man accused of murder, leading her to play detective to uncover the truth for the sake of her unborn child.
I wasn’t that big a fan during the first half of the story; however, once I got toward the middle, it started to get better. More tension was created and I liked the big risk that Christine was taking, not just for the sake of the murder victims and that her marriage was in trouble, but for the sake of her baby’s future. Although I wasn’t crazy about the story, I did like the conflict. It’s definitely worth the read.
