The Baby Rescue is an exciting read with lots of twists and turns. It is part of the Witness Protection series from Love Inspired Suspense, however, each story stands on its own.

Both Colton and Lisette are likeable characters who are dependable and strong. Each struggle with situations from the past that impact the way they face the future. Colton, a U.S. Marshall, grew up in foster care and doesn’t allow himself to form true, lasting relationships. Lisette carries a burden as well and it has sh
The Baby Rescue
By Margaret Daley

This is the second book in the Witness Protection. I thought Margaret did an excellent job in her writing and with her characters in The Baby Rescue. Black market adoption-ring is very strong and covers a good portion of the United States. U.S. marshal Colton Phillips and FBI agent Lisette Sutton is teamed up together to try to rescue Baby C and get the main people behind the smuggling ring. Colton has always been a loner and don't like to stay in one place over t
This book lives up to the title “Love Inspired Suspense”. The Baby Rescue is well-written and will keep your interest throughout the book. It is packed with romance and mystery. U.S. marshal Colton Phillips has to work with FBI agent, Lisette Sutton and their tactics are totally different but their goal remains the same….to break up a baby-smuggling ring. I found it hard to put it down as I was anxious to get to the ending. Margaret Daley is a new-to-me-author and I find her books intriguing, an ...more

The Baby Rescue
By: Margaret Daley

Great story. I loved the characters so believable. I would say Colton was my favorite. This book kept me reading and not putting it down. Lots of adventure.
The story is about a baby smuggling ring. U.S. Marshal Colton Phillips has to work with the FBI to capture the top ring leaders. The FBI sends him a woman to work with and Colton is not much for being a team player. Of all things he has to partner with a woman. He promises himself he isn’t going to let a woma
I love a good suspense story and when it falls within a continuing series I love it all the more.

While it is a series each book can be read as a stand-alone novel.

My Comments
I was so excited about reviewing this book! The US Marshal’s office has an assignment to crack a case in the baby smuggling ring and there’s so much at stake in this one. All Marshal Colton Phillips has to do is bring their suspect safely to the airport which will take him to the safe house for the remainder of the case as they get the information they need from him. Unfortunately, trouble starts immediately.

FBI Agent Lisette Sutton is not comfortable working with Colton because he’s

This is the second book in the Witness Protection series. I really like the LIS series that LI has chosen lately. This one, on child smuggling is good too! I love Margaret's books and always enjoy her characters & storylines. This book follows Colton, a US Marshall and Lisette, a FBI agent, who are on the trail of a mid-level child smuggler. They want to know who his boss is but he keeps slipping through their fingers. Colton and Lisette team up on this Op and find out that they actually hav ...more
Awesome continuation of this series. I've always loved Margaret Daley's books and once again she has succeeded in writing a great story.

Colton is a Deputy Marshal who doesn't stay in one place more than two years and he is at the end of his two years in Denver. He lives in hotels and eats out. If he doesn't get close to people he doesn't have to deal with losing them or getting hurt.

But somehow Lisette gets under his radar and he suddenly finds himself thinking maybe he's been missing out. Unti
The Baby Rescue is full of suspense, action, and mystery. Yep, that's a Margaret Daley book I'm talking about. The action starts from the first page. The chemistry between Colton and Lisette is undeniable right off the bat. I really enjoyed this book. If you love a short read that's an action packed page turner, then you won't be disappointed with this book. 5 stars.

#2 Witness Protection Continuity.

Guarding a witness is a job US Marshal Colton Phillips takes very seriously.

Even when that witness is a criminal who's going for a deal to give information in exchange for a lighter sentence.

Even when said criminal whines enough to drive you crazy.

And even when said criminal seems to be giving you the run-around.

But getting information to track down and break up a baby smuggling ring is just too important.

Can Colton Phillips and FBI Agent Lisette Sutton work from
The Baby Rescue, Book 2 in the Witness Protection Series by Margaret Daley
US Marshal Colton Phillips is working a protection detail for low life Don Saunders when FBI agent Lisette Sutton joins his team. They are frantic to stop a baby smuggling operation. Don Saunders does not seem to be all he claims he is. This cause both the FBI and the Marshall’s to wonder if they need to protect him or watch his every move. Things seem to go wrong at every turn. Having totally different work ethic, Colton
Margaret Daley has done it again. She is a marvelous author and has given us another great suspense story. The Baby Rescue is the 2nd book in a 6-book continuity series. I read the 1st book in the series so I had some idea of the characters in this one, but The Baby Rescue can also be read as a stand-alone book.

Colton Phillips and Lisette Sutton are great characters--Colton is a Deputy U.S. Marshal and Lisette is an FBI Agent. She goes by the book and he does what he has to do to get the job don
This continuity series, "Witness Protection", about U. S. Marshals and a baby smuggling ring, is absolutely great so far! Definitely a riveting inspirational romance and a must read for all you suspense readers!! So looking forward to the other 4 books in this series. Thanks Margaret, for sharing your God given talent of writing with us!!
This is the second book I have read by Margaret Daley, and it did not disappoint! While Lisette and Colton are truly what seem to be opposites, they have things in common that draw them together. One of those things is wanting Baby C to be rescued. The pair work together earnestly doing what they can to save this precious baby. The story takes the reader on a roller coaster ride--read it to see what happens!! Overall, it was a good read!

Thank you to the author for allowing me to preview this boo

Two law enforcement agencies must cooperate in order to bring down a baby smuggling ring and stop the sale of babies. The story line is a good one, but I felt disjointed reading this and didn't have that compelling urgency to finish the story (other than to get to a different book).

"More suspense than romance, the second book in the Witness Protection continuity series shows how distrust can hold people back. Decoy suspects lead to an unexpected conclusion - and a solid and captivating story." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 stars

Enjoyed the story. A little romance in with the suspense. Colton avoided relationships but when he partnered up with Lizette to work on a baby selling ring. He found it had not to be attracted to her.

Wow! Another great Suspense by Margaret Daley. The story has many twists and turns. Through it all the Lord brought forgiveness and healing. I loved the Spiritual Thread throughout this book.

2nd in a series, and much better than the first. These books all have a little bit of Christianity thrown in, and what surprised me was how awkwardly the brief conversations were.
Readers Corner
Book 2 in the Witness Protection series, is a nice follow up to Shirlee McCoy's start for the series. We heard about Colton Phillips in "Safe By The Marshal's Side" and now we get to see him in action in this story. You'll enjoy the story as Colton and FBI Agent, Lisette Sutton, try to locate a stolen baby as the marshal's continue trying to shut down the baby selling crime ring.
