Title: Colton's Christmas Cop (The Coltons of Red Ridge #11)
Author: Karen Whiddon
Stars: 3 1/2 Stars
This is the first I have read by Karen Whiddon and with all Harlequin books they are what they are. Layla is a tough as nails business woman who wants her father to be proud of her only to realize he is the reason the company is failing. She is accused of something which she didn't do and the hero comes into to save the day. He shows her what she is missing in life but she has to make the decision. The villain is beyond obvious as is the story. With that being said this is the first in the series I have read so I am not emotionally connect to the characters as other readers might be.
The story has sex, murder, soul searching and last but not least HEA.
