A Colton comes to the rescue

When an earthquake hits Mustang Valley, first responder Grayson Colton finds an abandoned truck—and a fugitive in need of help.

But as Savannah’s past comes back to haunt her, Grayson must use every survival tactic he knows to keep them both alive.

What would you do if you were wrongly accused of something and sent to jail? Well that is what happened to Savannah Oliver. However, fate steps in with a disaster that might help her change her fate.

Grayson Colton is a first responder who jumps right in when an earthquake strikes. In his search for injured people he runs across Savannah who has just escaped a prison bus. His has no problem believing she is innocent. Which surprised me since everyone else thinks she’s guilty.

I will say that for a former country club woman, Savannah has no problem managing while on the run. I was also surprised that Grayson doesn’t get into any trouble for helping her out.

This mystery in this one left me breathless. I kept waiting for the police to catch up to Savannah and Grayson. Maybe even the bad guys to take them out. All in all this was a edge of your seat sort book. It was so good.

On a side note, Payne is still in a coma and we still don’t know who shot him. Someone needs to wake his butt up!
