Blog Tour: Holden by Delores Fossen

Author: Delores Fossen
Publisher: Harlequin Intrigue
Date of publication: February 2017

When a baby goes missing, a Texas marshal and a woman from his past discover there’s a whole lot more behind this kidnapping… 

Holden Ryland certainly didn’t become a marshal just to end up busting his ex, Nicky Hart, for taking files from Conceptions Fertility Clinic. But only Nicky knows just what was really stolen: a newborn being held for ransom. A newborn who is kin to both her and Holden. The missing boy is only the start of a mystery that snakes through Texas, winding its way through their families. Bad blood may linger between them, but Holden can protect his nephew back at the Silver Creek Ranch. If they can lay their past to rest to rescue this child, is it possible for them to have a future together?

Holden is the 10th book in the Lawmen of Silver Creek series.  It's definitely fast paced and a very quick read.  The action begins in the first chapter and really doesn't slow down.  Nicky is an investigative reporter who finds out her sister's embryo was implanted into a surrogate.  She now has a nephew to find.  It is also Holden's nephew and he gets involved to help her find the baby.

I did enjoy the mystery.  There were a couple of twists that kept it exciting.  The ending was a surprise.  Unfortunately, I had a hard time connecting with the romance portion of the book.  I'm not sure this did that well as a stand alone.  Nick and Holden have a history that played out in an earlier book, so I felt like I was missing that connection.  I didn't know enough of their back story to really see their second chance connection.  There were also a lot of characters that made it a bit hard to keep track of who was connected to who and in what way. I think fans of this series will enjoy this one.  If you are new to the series, you may want to go back and read #1-9 first.
