Rising romantic suspense star Melissa Cutler reveals more secrets from the Coltons of Wyoming.
An unsolved murder haunts those who live and work at Dead River Ranch. When called to care for the ailing Colton patriarch, Dr. Levi Colton must face the father who never claimed him. He's not looking for distraction, but he finds it in Kate McCord, the irresistible pastry chef. Beneath her sweet smile are scars from her own tragedy and a determination for justice.
As a wildfire forces them together with an unknown killer, Levi and Kate must confront an attraction that flares hotter than flames. They edge closer to the truth, discovering that the secret that links their pasts could lead them straight into the killer's trap.
This book was part of a series. For the most part, I didn’t feel like I needed to have read the other books to understand what was going on in this one. The only thing that I felt like I missed was a better mental understanding of the minor characters that were mentioned.
This book centers around the relationship between Levi Colton and Kate McCord. Levi is the illegitimate son of Jethro Colton who happens to be a very wealthy rancher in Dead, Wyoming. Kate McCord is the pastry chef for Jethro. Levi is a doctor who is asked to come to his estranged father’s aide by his half sisters. Jethro’s health is failing due to an illness and he is too stubborn to get the proper care that he needs. In addition, there is also a murderer lurking amongst the staff at the ranch.
The moment that they meet, Levi and Kate spark a connection over pastry. The emotional baggage that they carry plays a pivotal role in the progression of their relationship. The heat between them will rival the impending wild fire that also threatens the ranch. The book started off a little slow but it quickly moved forward and I truly enjoyed it. I would be interested to know what has happened with the other members of the Colton family.
