    • Abstract:
      Summary: When Lana impulsively follows a woman through the streets of New York's Upper West Side, she only wants to know about the "anonymous" egg donor she'd selected through an agency. Circumstances bring the women face-to-face, and an unexpected friendship is born. Katya, a student at Columbia, is a breath of fresh air, a welcome distraction from Lana's painful breakup with her baby's father. Then, as suddenly as Katya entered Lana's life, she disappears-- and Lana might have been the last person to see her. As Lana digs into Katya's past, the police grow suspicious of her motives. And Lana is unprepared for the secrets she uncovers. -- adapted from jacket

Booklist Reviews 2019 May #1

This psychological suspense story rests on a coincidence and sometimes skids off the road of narrative credibility, but it is ultimately rewarding. The coincidence is that a woman battling infertility by getting an egg donor recognizes the face of her donor on the subway. Stretch this to the infertile woman actually following, starting up a conversation with, and getting to know the donor. If you can suspend disbelief this far, you'll get caught up in two first-person narratives, that of the egg recipient, an art curator, and that of the donor, a college student. Petrova is expert at showing how desperate both these women are—one for fertility and wholeness, the other for forgiveness and validation. It's the donor who pushes boundaries, engaging in more and more destructive behavior, until we learn she's disappeared. Would-be mother becomes both suspect and detective into the student's previous twisty life. This is an uneven novel, but its darkness and wild resolution will appeal to many readers.

New York art curator Lana Stone, the 39-year-old heroine of Petrova's impressive debut, faces her last chance at carrying a baby to full term with the help of an egg donor after battling with infertility for years. Three days before the scheduled transfer, Tyler, Lana's partner, abandons her. Heartbroken, Lana proceeds with the transfer and becomes pregnant without Tyler's knowledge. A week later, while riding the subway, Lana recognizes her baby's anonymous egg donor, vivacious 21-year-old Ivy League graduate Katya Dimitrova, from the photo in Katya's egg donor profile. Lana approaches Katya, with whom she shares a Bulgarian heritage, and the two develop a close, if risky, friendship. When Katya suddenly goes missing, Lana realizes that she was probably the last person to see her. Some will piece together the mystery faster than Lana can, but there are still burning questions that will keep readers at the edge of their seats. Fascinating details about Bulgarian culture leaven this gripping tale of the consequences of obsession. Petrova is off to a promising start. Agent: Lisa Grubka, Fletcher & Company. (June)
