In Redemption by Stephanie Baldi, Carrie is the victim. Her life had never been easy, starting with having a mother who abuses her and then takes away her baby boy. Next, Carrie believes that if she leaves home with Travis, all of her problems will disappear but she learns quickly that she is not much better off than being at home with her mother. Carrie steals and kills to survive life with Travis and, after years of misery, finally has the opportunity to start again. She is happy at last living with her Aunt May in a small Pennsylvania town with her new friends until the past comes back to threaten her. Enter Nick; he is both the good guy and the bad guy rolled into one. What follows will keep you reading late into the night or forgetting about your chores because you cannot put the book down without knowing what happens next.
If you like a suspenseful story that starts on page one and never ends, then you must read Redemption by Stephanie Baldi. This is a really good story that has all the elements needed to be suspenseful, romantic, mysterious and exciting with nail-biting action throughout. Stephanie Baldi has created characters that are both easy to love and hate. Carrie quickly became my friend, although I did not like Travis at all and saw Nick as both someone I really wanted to meet and, at other times, someone I really wanted to stay far away from. I highly recommend you put Redemption on the very top of your reading list – I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
