My Rating: 4.5 stars
We met Abigail in the first story of the series, and now things are getting dangerous for her as well. Lies are being spread, accusations that will endanger the adoption of her foster daughter, the daughter of a beloved deceased friend who specifically wanted Abigail to become her baby’s mother because they both knew that she would not survive to have that joy herself. The danger and threats will increase until Abigail and Griffin find answers… which isn’t going to be the easiest thing to accomplish.
The action is fast-paced and the romance steamy in ‘Colton 911: Suspect Under Siege‘. The danger to Abigail and her daughter is very real, and as the threats increase, the emotional toll of this story will begin to be felt. It is impossible to not feel Abigail’s fear, her confusion at what is happening, and why this being done to her and one innocent baby is so intense, so real that I couldn’t help but feel what she was experiencing. When an author can make me feel that deeply – only partway through the story, at that point – that’s an author I’ll follow.
I adored Griffin. The work that he does is so necessary and so emotional at times that he is the perfect person to be helping Abigail so it’s also no wonder that the attraction between them grew quickly into a love to last a lifetime… if they survive. The rest of the Colton family will be slowly drawn into Abigail’s troubles. They may have had their suspicions about her at first, but it doesn’t take them long to figure out that she’s the victim here and had nothing to do with her father’s actions.
The danger to and the mystery surrounding Brody is also brewing in the background. I’ve a feeling that Brody’s story (when we finally get it) is going to be explosive.
I enjoyed myself immensely in the ‘Colton 911: Suspect Under Siege‘ world, and I’m already anticipating returning next month for ‘Detective on Call’ by Regan Black. If you love a suspense-filled romance with likable, believable characters, vile villains, puzzles to be solved, and some steamy moments then you’ll want to get involved with the ‘Colton 911: Grand Rapids‘ series… right now.
