Colton Manhunt by Jane Godman is book six in the Coltons of Mustang Valley series. This series of novels written by various authors features the Colton Family of Mustang Valley, Arizona.
Spencer Colton, Sergeant and K-9 officer with the Mustang Valley Police Department, is a distant cousin to Payne Colton, patriarch of a local affluent family, though Spencer is from the less affluent branch of the Colton lineage. Katrina Perry is the owner and head trainer at the Look Who’s Walking dog-training center. Katrina has a difficult past that she’s worked hard to overcome. The two meet when Katrina reports her fraternal twin sister, Eliza, missing. Spencer is determined to help Katrina in any way he can, despite the danger she is in, especially when he realizes there is growing attraction on both sides.
Colton Manhunt is another in the string of interesting, entertaining novels produced by the authors in this series. The plot is engaging and well thought out but develops somewhat slowly. The characters are strong, likable and fully-developed. Ms. Godman does a good job of maintaining the continuity of the series. There is some explicit sexual content in the few sex scenes in this novel, but the romance is still the focus. The dogs add a little levity and cuteness to the story. Overall, I enjoyed the novel, rate it 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to readers who enjoy romantic suspense.
My thanks to HARLEQUIN – Romance (US & Canada) and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
