I love this series of books. The books can be read out of order, and as a reader you are not left confused, or lost. Each book stands alone.

This book was excellent. The suspense, and action was intense. most books have a villain, maybe two. In this story Hope had all kinds of people after her. She had her ex husbands cronies that wanted her to die. If Hope can live long enough, she is set to testify against her ex husband. She has a jealous co worker that is out for blood. If that is not bad en

He's having a hard time dealing with the idea that he could be the missing Cole Colton. There is also a new maid on the ranch that turns out not to be a maid at all.

Dylan Frick doesn't know who his father is and is loath to find out, even though he's agreed to give a DNA sample in the unlikely event he's a match for the Colton patriarch on whose ranch he works as a wrangler. When Hope Woods arrives on the ranch, running from her ex-husband and mob boss, she is assured she's safe there. In fact, Amanda Colton asks Dylan to watch out for Hope.

But soon events occur that suggest she's been followed. When both she and Dylan are targeted the big question then be

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Colton Heir by Colleen Thompson is the newest book in The Coltons of Wyoming series. This book starts off with a bang - literally when a bomb explodes in Hope Woods' car. Colleen certainly knows how to introduce readers to a new character.

Then readers return to Dead River Ranch where we meet Dylan Frick again. His mind is on the DNA test and his mother's murder. Hope is now working at Dead River Ranch

If you’ve been paying attention all the way along, the answer to the Cole question will not come as a great surprise. There have been hints along the way that Dylan is not exactly who he always believed. Even if you hadn’t quite decided if the authors were going to honor their own clues, the title pretty much gave it away. Finding out who Cole is doesn’t get us any closer to finding out how or why Faye brought him back to Dead River Ranch in the first place.

As if things were not already complic

Great continuation of the Colton Saga.

Dylan Frick a wrangler on Dead River Ranch is still trying to figure out who murdered his mother. To complicate matters he maybe the kidnapped son of the ranch owner. His DNA is being tested to see if he is Cole Colton and if he is a match for a marrow transplant to save the man who has been his boss for years, but may also be his father.

Hope Woods is a new hire on the ranch. Her experience as a maid has a lot to be desired. One of her best friends in colle

Overall it was a good book. However, it was confusing at times and hard to keep things straight.

The Colton Heir is a real page turner..very hard to put down. Is Dylan Fick the secret Colton heir that vanished when he was a baby from Dead River Ranch? Who murdered his mother? Who is this new mysterious maid, Hope Woods, at the ranch? Can they keep her deadly secret, stay out of danger while falling in love? Or will keeping her safe mean Dylan needs to walk away from her? I found this book very interesting and full of the unexpected. Will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Great little quick romance. Read this on the plane home from the holidays and it was perfect for that. Lovely light romance with some suspense. Really enjoyed the other book in in the Colton series by C. Thompson. I'll most likely read them all as they come to my library.

Another Colton hit! If you love the series than you will love this book!! It keeps you guessing at each turn. There's something going on at Dead River Ranch- but will it ever end?!?! This was my first Colleen Thompson book- but I will be ordering her backlist now!!
