Jess Carroll is tired of running. She’s settled far away from the grasping woman who wants custody of her 9-month-old son. Her former mother-in-law has the money, power and determination to get what she wants — and she wants Jack. When Jess answers an ad as a babysitter for a 2-year-old to supplement her income, she meets Lars Toleffson and his daughter Daisy — and her world as she knows it changes completely.
Lars senses all is not right with Jess when he meets her. He has problems of his own, though. His ex-wife is threatening to take Daisy away unless he gives her more money. Then the break-ins begin, the dog gets poisoned and the threat to Jack becomes all too real. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $5.50)
