Never Knowing by Chevy Stevens

Being adopted myself, this book hit home for me.  This is a book about a woman, Sara, who is adopted and has a dysfunctional relationship with her father.  She dreams of finding her birth parents to see if they will be able to fill the void in her life.  She finds her birth mother through a private detective and learns that she has changed her name due to the fact that she is the lone survivor of "the Campsite Killer" and got pregnant with Sara because of the attack.  She gave Sara up for adoption and never wanted anything to do with her. Eventually, the Campsite Killer, John, learns that he has a daughter and he starts to call and send "gifts" to Sara.  The Royal Canadian Police get involved and convince Sara to be the bait so that they can catch John.

This was a good book; fast paced and realistic. I like the way she depicted relationships in this book, good and bad.  Sara had very difficult decisions to make concerning her biological father - connecting with him as father/daughter, while helping the police try to capture him.  This book had lots of twists and turns and always kept me guessing.
