Colby Law is the forty-eighth - yes, you read that right - book in the Colby Agency series, and a heartwarming, exciting, steamy story that begins a new case for the well known and respected private investigation firm.

Colby Investigator Lyle McCaleb is sent to Texas to investigate what the press had dubbed the Princess Killer case, a decades old serial killing spree that devastated a small Texas community. The crimes were made even more abhorrent because the victims were all young girls, and th

Lyle is an ex-cop now working, for the well-respected Colby Agency, as a security specialist. His newest assignment takes him close to his home, and heart which he left seven years earlier. He’s assigned to protect one the daughters of infamous serial-killer couple, Rafe and Clare Barker. They were convicted of murdering eight young girls, as well as their own three daughters, twenty-two years back. Thirty days before execution, Rafe calls Colby Agency to tell them his daughters are, in fact, al
Excellent start to the new Colby series. It was obvious from the beginning that Lyle still loved Sadie. He knew that leaving her seven years earlier had been best for her, but he had never forgotten her. Now he was responsible for keeping her safe. Sadie was stunned to see him when he showed up at her ranch. She didn't want him there, as she had never really gotten over her broken heart, but it became obvious pretty quickly that she needed his help. I liked the way that she realized that she tru ...more

4.25 out of 5. I had not read the myriad novels in the Colby Agency series--I think the previous books number in the 40's -- but I sure am glad not to have missed this one. I love romance, erotica, and such, but when mixed in with mystery and the dark side of the ways of human beings, there is something so edgy that I just can't resist. Now you have the Colby investigator rediscovering the woman who he left almost overnight seven years earlier and she is in danger--her dad is facing execution an ...more

An unbeatable combination---Colbys and Cowboys.

Leaving Jim and Ian to run the Chicago office, Victoria and Lucas announce their retirement and move to Texas to help Simon start up the Texas office.

They are immediately imbroiled in plots against three sisters, each of which believing she is an only child. This of course evolves into three books, culminating in July with with book fifty of the series.

In Webb’s romantic suspense novel, Colby investigator Lyle McCaleb is assigned to find and protect Sadie Gilmore. Complications: 1) She’s at the heart of the Colby’s investigation into the worst murder in Texas history because she is the biological daughter of the killer. 2) She’s Lyle’s one true love. And to make things worse, the past she has no memory of is rising up to the surface to taunt her.

Aug 07, 2012 Jeanne rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
This is in the Harlequin Romance-Intrigue group of books. It was suspenseful in both the romance and the intrigue categories. The book was written as part one of a trilogy with the ending leaving off so that you had to go out and buy the next one in the series. The romance part of the book was settled in this book, but not the mystery. So on to Book 2.

Shelves: suspense
A good romantic suspense with plenty of action but beyond the sex most of the romance took place in the characters minds as they reflected on their history together. I wish I would have known beforehand this series is so integrated. Lyle is assigned to protect old girlfriend Sadie when suspected murderer is after her.

I didn't like the characters well enough to want them to get together, so I didn't finish reading this book.

I like Debra Webb and as usual she didn't disappoint me. This was a good love story with a thriller inside so a very good reading for me.

So I finished this and disappointed. I wanted more of Lyle and I have to wait. All in all I like the storyline but have to read the others. Great book and kept my attention.

Colby Law review

Colby Law is a well-written book by author Debra Webb. However, there is a cliffhanger ending. I do like this series.
