Title: Colton Christmas Protector - The Colton's of Texas Book 12 Author: Beth Cornelison Published: 12-6-2016 Publisher: Harlequin Pages: 288 Genre: Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense; Sub Genre: Romance; Westerns ISBN: 13: 9780373282050 ASIN: B01HB74HXA Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4.25 Stars I received a copy of "Colton Christmas Protector" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Description The Coltons of Texas saga reaches its thrilling climax with a tale of Christmas justice! Ex-cop Reid Colton is working double-time to help beautiful widow Penelope Barrington Clark. While investigating her dad, his family lawyer, the two are also trying to uncover who murdered Pen's husband…all while keeping their relationship professional! But when a bullet and their forbidden attraction change everything, it's Reid to the rescue, determined to guard Pen and her son with his life. The last thing Penelope wants is to fall for a sexy Colton who's not looking for forever. Yet as Christmas approaches and their investigation heats up, the three start to feel like a family. And the best present of all? Solving the Colton clan's biggest mystery! My Review of "Colton Christmas Protector": The climatic ending is finally here and it is as good as one could hope for. Unfortunate I have missed a few of the final books in this series and had a bit of trouble catching up. I still enjoyed the book. The characters were bold and well developed. I understood and followed the plot of the two main characters and their coming together easily. The running plot of the family in general was were the problems came in. I was lucky to find the three books I missed at a local used bookstore and once I read them I reread "Colton Christmas Protector" again and found it to be very clear and a fun read. My overall rating of "Colton Christmas Protector" is 4.25 out of 5 stars.

I have truly enjoyed this series, but this last book turned out to be my favorite one! It has great mysteries to be solved, the case of missing patriarch needing to come to conclusion, there are the old friends who need to find their peace with each other, a little boy who deserves a father, and the Colton family who always manage to get some drama and trouble stirred up wherever they go. Pen and Reid has an interesting history between them. Reid actually introduced Pen's husband to her, and then later on Reid was accused of killing Andrew, his partner in the law enforcement and her husband. They used to be acquaintances, even friends. Reid has always found her attractive, but now they have so much hostility, remorse, guilt, and anger in-between them it is going to take an effort for them to work on the mysterious information coming to the light about Pen's father and her husband, Andrew. The chemistry between Pen and Reid was amazing. And this novel takes it time to develop, it is not a day or two but weeks of time, and when the slow heat between them turns into a sizzling burn they both have a strong reaction. And while they are in hiding and investigating, the growth, the development in both of them is evident. Reid has to face his past as the rich playboy with no commitments to slow him down. And Pen has to take the steps to move on from Andrews death, his father's betrayal, and dare to embrace life anew. That part of the story was like watching a sunrise, there was such a light and joy in their discoveries and beauty in their fragile attempts to approach each other. And them - BAM and we are in the middle of a high-speed action, and it is happening in several places at the same time with deadly force and attempt. It is fierce, bloody, and horrifyingly intimidating. I was coming off my seat with tension as the crescendo hit the story. An absolutely marvelous ending to the series, breathtaking at times, gave a conclusion to most of the questions. The case of a missing patriarch I wanted more answers for, but even though this was the end of the series, somehow I got the impression there are some of the Colton's we might be hearing again later on. Maybe. Wishful thinking? ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
