Tasked with figuring out who left a baby girl at the Houston FBI office, Special Agent Tanner Wilson has only one hint -- his ex-girlfriend's name written on a scrap of paper. 

But child psychologist Macy Mills doesn't recognize little Addie, and someone's dead set on abducting her...even if it costs Tanner's and Macy's lives. 

And with Addie and Macy as targets, Tanner's new mission is to protect them both -- at the risk of his own life and heart. Macy will do anything to help him find who's after Addie, and make amends for her own mistakes. But for their reunion to become a second chance at love, they must find a way to survive the danger threatening to tear them apart. 

My thoughts: THE BABY ASSIGNMENT is the first book in a new series Love Inspired Books are doing, each book written by a different author, so they are all stand-alone. Christy Barritt's is  pretty much formula Love Inspired Suspense. FBI agent, mole in the department, heroine running for her life with no clue why and of course the bad guy knows every move she's going to make, spur of the moment or otherwise. 

I've said this before and I'll say it again, I'd never survive as a heroine in a Love Inspired Suspense. 

The action being what it is, the book is edge of your seat tense at time. Would the gunman notice her hiding under her desk at work? What about the baby who WON'T stay quiet? That at least added a realistic touch. 

Macy and Tanner were former lovers and broke up so she could pursue her career dreams and he could pursue his, Now, years later, they are thrust together in this run for your life story with a baby neither one of them knows. And no clue who she is. None of the leads pan out. Until, of course, the final reveal at the end, for the HEA. 

I had a vague idea who the mole was in the department, but had no idea who wanted the baby or why Macy was involved or even why the FBI got involved in finding out simply because the baby was left at the offices. So of course I had to keep reading to find out. 

Fans of Ms. Barritt will likely love this book. I received a copy free. All opinions are my own.
