Colton by Blood by Melissa Cutler
The one thing about a series of books that I don't answer all the mystery in one books and you have to wait for the next book to give you more answers. I was not ready for the story to end I wanted more. I like Levi, he is strong, caring and willing to forgive a lifetime of bad treatment.
This book should have a warning, full of yummy deserts make you just gain weight by reading about Kate the pastry chef at the Dead river ranch. She puts up with a lot so she can pay her debts before she can move onto a better job. She works early in the morning till late. She has had a lot of trials in her life. Kate is also looking into the death of her friend who tried to stop a kidnapper. People find out she is looking for answers and warn her to stop, let the police look into it.
Dr. Levi Colton was asked by his half sisters to come to Dead River Ranch that their father was dying and refused any treatments. His father is rich and never acknowledged him but he did pay child support. Everyone else is scared of him. He refused them and then decided to just drive to Wyoming to the ranch to prove he is not like his father.
lots of drama, danger but lots of witty dialogue early morning while they are the only two awake at the big ranch while Kate is baking bread or another desert. One love scene that I skimmed over. Also a wildfire is coming close to the ranch.
This is the second book of Melissa's that I have read and enjoyed. I look forward to reading more of her books.
