COLTON CHRISTMAS RESCUE
COLTON CHRISTMAS RESCUE (4) by Beth Cornelison: Under the guise of being the new head foreman, special agent Slade Kent is looking for answers behind the murders that occurred on the Colton ranch. He doesn’t plan on becoming attracted to ranch heiress and veterinarian Amanda Colton. Nor does Amanda expect to be drawn to this tough cowboy, whom she discovers is not the person he claims to be. Being around Amanda and her baby daughter unravels Slade’s long-controlled grief over the death of his own wife and daughter. When Amanda becomes the target of vicious attacks, Slade becomes even more determined to get to the truth. The combination of Slade’s toughness and Amanda’s spunk will draw readers in. Good pacing and a solid mystery, complete with an unexpected twist in the end, cap off a well-crafted story.
