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
An enjoyable suspense read. Definitely reflects back to book one of the series, so I was a bit at sea, since it's been a couple years since I read it. I'm heading through the series faster now so I don't forget what's going on with the baby-kidnapping ring!

#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.

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.

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

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

Colton, and Lisette were strangers that became partners, working together to take down a baby smuggling ring. Colton was with the U.S. Marshals, and Lisette was with the FBI. Through all the actions, and long days, and nights a friendship was made. The two followed a baby that switched hands. They couldn't snatch the people right away, because they wanted to find out who was at the top of the ring. The baby got lost in the shuffle, and they worked around the clock to find the baby. With the long ...more

I love a good suspense story and when it falls within a continuing series I love it all the more. The Baby Rescue, by Margaret Daley, is the second book in the Love Inspired Suspense Witness Protection series. This series is comprised of six books written by different authors. While it is a series each book can be read as a stand-alone novel.

This is the second book in the Witness Protection series, written by different authors. It picked right up where Safe by the Marshal's Side left off. This can be read as a stand alone. It does reference a few things from the first book though. I only knew what they were talking about because I had read it.

Colton & Lisette both had less than ideal childhoods that have left them with emotional scars. They both are still working on issues as a result. But I liked that they were both already Ch

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

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!

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.

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!!

I love the concept of this series.

This book in particular was good but I found the scene development to be lacking. And I didn't feel I got to know the characters as well as in the first book.

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 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!

I struggled with this story, felt like it jumped at times making it a bit hard to follow as I felt like I was missing things that had happened. Colton was described as a person that bends the rules to get the job done, but I felt like I didn't see him do anything that would have fit this description. I did like the characters of Colton and Lisette and felt the connection between the two. The mystery kept me wondering who was all involved in the baby smuggling ring.

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.

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.
Mary Ann
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).
