Kelly Manning discovers the infant she brought home from the hospital could not be her biological son, and her search leads her to rancher Nick Lattimer and the baby boy he has been raising since the child's mother died. Could Nick's ward be her true son? Is her son Nick's? As a result of his mother's will, Nick lives in fear that any heir he has will be targeted by his homicidal brother. The characters in Delores Fossen's Stork Alert (3) are either over-the-top evil or good, and there's not much character development, but the plot and action are intense and thrilling.
