Double Crime at Dead River Ranch
Former cop Trevor Garth left the line of duty, but his expert instincts are sharper than ever when crime strikes the Colton ranch. As ranch security, he has to step in - yet this time getting justice is personal. Mistaken for a Colton heiress and stolen from her crib, his daughter's in the hands of a killer out for ransom. Desperate for an ally, he must rely on the woman determined to help him.
Gabriella Colton doesn't think twice about joining Trevor's search for his daughter. Beneath his world-weary exterior is a passionate man in need of someone to trust - with his baby and his heart. Now, when every second counts, their dangerous investigation draws them closer to each other... and their darkest threat.

But the narrator Kate Russell was excellent. She is the only reason I bought this. I plan to listen to most books she narrates.
Harlequin has page limits, and I believe the author just stopped writing when she reached the limit. We don’t know who the main bad guy was. He/she was not discovered or caught at the end. It would have been better to see some of the bad guys’ motivations and actions. This is the first book in the Coltons of Wyoming series. I expect we will find out who the bad guy is in book 2 or book 3 or other. There are other unanswered questions which are set-ups for future books. Readers need patience for this series.
Book 2 in the Coltons of Wyoming series is titled “Colton by Blood.” It’s written by a different author (Melissa Cutler) and has a different narrator.
In book 1, I did not see good relationship development. Gabby and Trevor interact for the first time as they investigate the missing baby. All of a sudden they have sex. I didn’t see desire leading up to it. There was no passion. Then the guy immediately proposes? It felt like the author was thinking “quick throw this in before I run out of pages.”
Error: Once during the text it says the ranch is located in Montana. But Wyoming is on the cover of the book.
Genre: romantic suspense, baby
