Expected publication: March 1st 2020 by Harlequin Romantic Suspense
A Colton must solve a DNA mystery…
…and save his family from ruin.
One phone call suddenly upends Asher Colton’s life. He discovers his baby daughter might have been switched with single mom Willow Merrill’s. Worse, the day care owner vehemently hates his family. But for the babies’ sake, they work to uncover the truth about the births as threats to the Colton family—and Willow’s business—mount. But can the truth set free a love-scarred rancher and his harshest enemy?
This is the fifth book in the Harlequin Intrigue Colton’s of Mustang Valley series by Dana Nussio.
Basic premise of this story mirrors the ongoing problem the Colton’s have had since this series began: a baby switched at birth. Asher is introduced to Willow after the two are called in to the hospital to check out a supposed baby switch scenario that was phoned in anonymously. Only naturally, they are both freaked out by this. The two fight their attraction. Willow wants to stand on her own two feet and Asher doesn’t think he is the falling in love type.
I like how Asher makes a point to visit his father in the hospital even though other siblings in their various books did not do that. And he also didn’t ask for the Colton help to sort out the current baby switch nonsense. I like how he wanted to work on his own instead of depending on his family’s name and prestige to get him what he wanted. The two main characters relied on each other during a lot of this which makes the book so appealing.
I am secretly chuckling on the inside wondering if the elder Colton will stay in the hospital until all his children are married off or engaged. I am sure that is not true but it seems to be working out that way.
Great book. Such a guilty pleasure series. If you are looking to get into romantic suspense, this would be a great option to start your journey with. If you love a good romantic suspense, definitely check this book out. You won’t be disappointed.
