Colton Cowboy Hideout + Ribs

New York Times bestselling author Carla Cassidy kicks off another gripping Colton romance in cowboy country! 

After years in hiding, Josie Colton has her life back. But to settle a family promise, she must find an old clue buried at the Colton Valley Ranch. She enlists the help of ranch foreman Tanner Grange—in exchange for working as his twin toddlers' new nanny. On their search, the single dad soon begins to lasso Josie's heart.

Tanner agrees to assist Josie and is alarmed by how the Colton beauty fits so perfectly into his life. He's got his hands full investigating the disappearance of his boss and caring for his little girls. When it's clear someone will kill to stop Josie from uncovering the clue, Tanner vows to protect her…for life!  

My Review

I am a fan of cowboy stories. Thus the reason I wanted to read this book. Plus, I am familiar with this publishing line from Harlequin. This book is part of a series, The Coltons of Texas. I have not read the other books in this series but this one can be read as a stand alone novel. Although I thought this was a charming read, that is all it was for me. I did not feel the strong, intensity connection between Josie and Tanner. Even when they had sex, I had no reaction either way. In addition, the mystery side of the story also was not as entertaining as I would have hoped it to be. Yet, this is a quick read. I did learn some about the Colton family and I might try another one of these books in the series.
