You’ll either like it or you won’t…

(DISCLAIMER:  Book contains adult language and situations.  Not a Christian book).

surrogatesAfter two prominent businessmen die of heart attacks on the same day, a former law clerk hires an investigator to prove they were murdered and to check into a connection to the Lake Shore Parenting Group.  This group was formed by a doctor, lawyer, therapist and private investigator to pair childless couples with a surrogate willing to give birth for a price.  Three women became surrogate mothers through the group and their children were adopted by five couples.  Events are set into motion when the children find out about their births.

The investigator interviews all of the involved parties and the book is filled with the results of those interviews.  The plot and characters are interesting enough, but there are several reasons the book didn’t make the great category.  First, the language.  It could have been deleted and still maintain the integrity of the book.  Ditto, the sexual situations that entered into the book in the final chapters.  It was almost as if two different people wrote the book.  Secondly, during the therapist’s interview, the therapist knew more than he could possibly have known about the lawyer’s conversations with his family and his law clerk.

It took some time to get involved in the story, but once you get hooked, you can’t stop reading.  However, the language and other situations were disappointing particularly since they didn’t add anything to the story.
