Book Review - Dangerous Relations by Carol J. Post


He’ll do anything to save his niece…

In this The Baby Protectors novel

When her sister’s murdered, navy man Ryan McConnell insists on protecting Shelby Adair and their niece—especially after someone tries to kidnap little Chloe. But can Shelby trust the child’s uncle? After all, she’s convinced his family’s behind the attacks. But the longer Ryan shields them, the more Shelby wonders if becoming a forever family is their only shot at survival.


From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol’s resume reads as if she doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love for writing. She currently pens fun and fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for a RITA® award and an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award.

Carol lives in sunshiny Central Florida with her husband, who is her own real-life hero, and writes her stories under the shade of the huge oaks in her yard. Besides writing, she works alongside her music minister husband singing and playing the piano. She enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.


I have had the privilege of reading many of Carol's books and I've enjoyed every one of them. This book is no exception! I read this book in one sitting and just couldn't put it down!

Shelby is a young woman who has had a difficult childhood and had responsibilities that a girl shouldn't have to have. She's responsible but has left some family relationships behind that she is now trying to restore. One of those is her younger sister, Mia and her niece, Chloe. Unfortunately, one night when they are going to meet for dinner, she shows up to Mia's apartment to find it filled with police officers. Her sister has been killed and now she needs to be responsible for her niece.

This brings Ryan into her life. He is Chloe's uncle on her father's side and he also wants custody of Chloe. Before any of this can be worked out, they are thrown together when they realize that Shelby's life is in danger and that puts Chloe in danger, too.  Ryan decides to be he protector they need.

I really enjoyed the mystery and the roller coaster ride this story took me on! There are some very dangerous people in this story, however, the goodness and kindness of Shelby and Ryan shine through.

I always enjoy Carol's books because she has a faith element to the book where one or more of the characters are searching for their faith. She weaves this in so beautifully and naturally and I enjoy seeing her characters find that God is with them.

This was a wonderful book with a thrilling story line that I enjoyed tremendously. I highly recommend this book and give it 5 stars.
