I don't know how to properly review this book in a way that can fully describe how fantastic this book truly is. One of the most underrated books that Jodi Picoult has ever written by far. This book drags me in and spits me out in the best way possible and the only way to read this, in my opinion, is to dedicate a whole weekend to fully imerse yourself in it. I've lost track of how many times I have re-read this book at this point and that is this only way I can describe how I really feel about this book. ( )

I don't believe in ghosts and generally don't care for supernatural themed stories but I found Second Glance to be a surprise. The story follows multiple characters, most of them damaged in some sort of way. Ross Wakeman lost his fiancee in a crash and longs to find her again. Multiple suicide attempts have convinced him that he just can't die. He meets a strange and beautiful woman named Lia, who seems to appear and disappear at will. Ross has been working with a “ghost hunter” and is offered an opportunity to investigate a string of events involving an old house. He knows this might finally be his opportunity to communicate with his late fiancee.

Picoult has done a wonderful job of creating a fairly wide range of characters and making their interactions believable. It's a combination of ghost story, murder mystery, and historical fiction. The book is quite long at almost 500 pages but I still found it incredibly readable. I'm a long time Jodi Picoult fan but this is one I long avoided because I just didn't have any interest in ghost stories. I'm glad I finally had a chance to read and enjoy this fascinating book. ( )

As always, JP raises questions about ethics and society through an engaging sorry. Never heard before about the eugenics movement in USA and the laws to limit the reproduction of people deemed inferior. ( )

This was much better than the last Jodi Picoult book I read. I really enjoyed the storyline and the characters in this one (although it was hard to keep them all straight in my mind at some points!). I like how she wove in real historical fact within the fictional story -- I actually learned something I didn't know anything about through reading this book! ( )

Coincidence, or fate? That is the question. Picoult is a favorite author of mine and this one doesn't disappoint.

Part ghost story, part romance, part history lesson, we are dropped into two timelines which are intertwined over time. A 70-year-old murder mystery and a modern day story are woven together into a bundle that all makes sense by the end. You end up with a ghost story along with an interesting history of eugenics and Native American cultures that is little-known but worth the read.

Ask yourself a few questions to see if you should read this book?
1) Do you like ghost stories? Then yes, please read.
2) Do you like murder mysteries? This one will keep you guessing.
3) Do you like stories that tie in real-life history? Read this one--it's fascinating.
4) Do you like alternating timelines? This is the book for you.

This is a hard one to summarize because so much is happening, but there is a little something for everyone inside. The strong motherhood story you have come to expect from Picoult with some supernatural twists and turns.

What if you slept?
And what if in your sleep, you dreamed?
And what if in your dream, you went to heaven
