Product Description

Product Description

As a thirty-two-year-old, single restaurant manager, Jenna McClure is all too aware of her ticking biological clock. Elizabeth Demauer, a fertility clinic doctor, helps her patients bear children—a joy she can never share. But these two women have more in common than just a yearning for motherhood. When they cross paths, Elizabeth sees not only the sister she never knew existed but the once-in-a-lifetime chance to realize her deepest desire…by any means necessary.

Together with her lover—a rogue physician and charismatic cult leader—Elizabeth masterminds the ultimate theft. But their carefully laid plans could be derailed by Eric Troutman, the heroic reporter who’s fallen in love with Jenna and will stop at nothing to solve her sudden disappearance. And the more his relentless investigation tightens the noose around Elizabeth and David, the more their “victimless crime” threatens to become anything but.

This is the first book I've read from L.J. Sellers, and it certainly won't be the last. The author knows how to write a gripping but dark story, yet not unbelievable. Both main characters, Jenna and Eric, are strong yet vulnerable with their insecurities, thus giving the readers some compassion for them. Detective Jackson (from LJ's Detective Jackson Mysteries novels) makes an appearance (which I understand he has done in all her books), although his character isn't explored in much depth in this book. I'll no doubt be meeting this character when I start on that series.

I particularly enjoyed the storyline of The Baby Thief, as it's a bit different to the thrillers I've read before. Overall, I found it to be a compelling and enjoyable read, with plenty of page-turning moments. Well done, L.J - keep the books coming.... you've got a new fan!

3.0 out of 5 stars More of a crime story than a romantic thriller 3 Jan 2013
By Katie85 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I have read from L J Sellers and will most likely be the last. The idea behind the story seems to be original, but I felt that the "romantic thriller" side seemed to be more the sub-plot. There seemed to be an overemphasis on the solving of who kidnapped Jenna rather than the romantic side this story suggested. Also, the story was told from several different viewpoints - I am a fan of the "telling it from two sides" format, but this was too many characters and as such, I felt I did not understand them or particularly care for any of them. The story did, however, have some unpredictable twists.

I do like crime fiction now and again, so I probably would have still read this had this been advertised as crime (and would probably be less disappointed) but I have read both better romantic thrillers and better crime stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good fast paced read 9 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not my usual read but this book was a good addictive read. I was reading this at every spare minute I got. The character Carmichael gave me the creeps. This would make a good tv drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and engaging 8 Oct 2012
By Wanda
Format:Kindle Edition
The Baby Thief by L.J Sellers
I downloaded this book during a promotion on Amazon and was delighted when I started to read it to find it a gripping and interesting read.
The premise of the book is novel and fresh and I feel if I say anymore in this regard I will be giving out spoilers. But it is a work of fiction with a novel slant to a comfortable scenario which makes it gripping and at the same time terrifying. It is not however a horror or even a true psychological thriller so I would urge you to read it yourself to understand my meaning in this regard. Plot deserves a 5 * review rating.
The characters in the story is well fleshed out, well rounded and I loved that background was created even on the most peripheral of characters without adding bulk and needless drudgery in the story. I also really appreciated the fact that the author managed to make no black and white distinction with her characters, she managed to give the evil guys enough of a background and motive to have some redeeming qualities and the good guys were not all that perfect. They were human. This was a very nice deviation on many books I have been reading lately. Character development, 5 * review rating.
Formatting and editing of the book was professionally executed and if any minor mistakes were present it never grated on my nerves so I will give this aspect of the book a 5 * rating as well.
General enjoyment and recommendation for a specific target market.
I believe that all action/adventure/suspense/romance lovers will love this book and that it will keep them out of many a pleasurable hour of sleep. A resounding 5 * rating from me.
In general this book is a 5 * rated book and I would very strongly suggest you all go out and get a copy to read and enjoy. It is money well spent.
