The Coltons and Gages have feuded for generations; Carson is convinced the cowgirl is hiding his prime suspect on her ranch. But the beauty and her baby stir unwelcome yearnings in his calloused heart. After all, Carson has learned the hard way what vulnerability can cost. When Serena and her child become targets of a mysterious assailant, Carson’s protective urges take over. Can an irresistible attraction prove stronger than old family hatreds and help them capture a criminal?


Marie Ferarella delivered an amazing story. Filled with mystery and romance.
I haven’t read a book by Marie Ferrarella in quite some time. So, when I got the chance to read her latest book Colton Baby Rescue the first title in her newest series The Coltons of Red Ridge, I was excited and had to read all the back-log books to make room for this title.

The novel begins when Carson Gage comes upon a person lying face down in an alley. But once he turned the body over, he got a shock, when he glanced into the unseeing eyes of his brother. And it appears that his brother before he died left a message that points towards one of the Colton members that of his late ex-fiancée Demi Colton. Is Demi the murder or was someone trying to start a few between the Colton and Gages? When his investigation leads him to one of Demi’s relation that of one Serena Colton things heats up. Carson and Serena start bumping heads when he thinks that Serena is harboring his number one suspect. Then the book took a twist when an unknown person tries to kidnap Serena’s baby. Which leads Carson to suspect that maybe he was on the hunt for the wrong person in his brother’s death.

I really enjoyed this novel. It had a nice flow to the plot and instead of one mystery, you will be drawn into solving two mysteries. The characters were enjoyable. However, I didn’t like the way the novel ended on a cliffhanger. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this quick and adventurous read.
