It’s been two years since Jamie Carter escaped captivity and saved Charlotte Grand, the infant daughter of New York Governor Phillip Grand, becoming a national hero for foiling the kidnapping plot that incarcerated reputed mobster/entrepreneur Don Bailino—the man who abducted and raped her. As Governor Grand considers his candidacy for U.S. president, Bailino inexplicably escapes from prison, and soon Jamie’s fifteen-month-old daughter, Faith—Bailino’s biological child—disappears. Jamie sets off to find her and, in the process, finds an unlikely ally in Bailino, who is on the run not only from the FBI but from members of organized crime who have a score to settle. Can Jamie trust the man who once held her prisoner? Can she rely on her instincts? And can she again find the strength to save a child when, this time, that child is her own?

“A fun, taut, well-written thriller.”


Baby Bailino by Dina Santorelli is a fast-paced, entertaining novel sure to be loved by readers everywhere. The story’s quick action is emphasized and well played in short chapters, with lots of interesting conversation to keep up the plot’s stride. Santorelli has a great ear for dialogue and handles different characters with aplomb. The heartwarming scenes added depth and texture. Though this is the second installment in a series, the reader won’t be lost but can jump right in and know what’s happening. However, after reading this installment, no doubt readers new to the series will want to go back and investigate the first book….Overall, Santorelli is clearly a talented author writing an excellent series. I think readers will be more than happy to stick with her over many books to come!”
