Suspenseful action with lots of heart string tugging! I really enjoyed the premise to this story ... he loses his wife, is left to raise their son on his own, and reaches out to a PI to see if his wife's death really was an accident -- but the PI just so happens to be their previous surrogate and bio Mom to his son! It had a great underlying connection between them, but unfortunately it struggled to play out in a way to keep me connected with the story line. It really felt like there were too many possible bad guys and the constant going from one direction to another pulled the attention away from the core plot. It had great possibility with the core characters, but too much of a mish-mashed story line to be satisfying.
Tech mogul Jeremy Kincaid adores his son and will do anything to give him the life he deserves. He lost his wife when their son was very young, and he can't let go of the suspicion that her car accident wasn't truly an accident. He decides he needs to pursue it once and for all and see if he can get the answers he needs to let it rest.
Private investigator Adeline Winters is thrown when Jeremy contacts her to investigate his wife's accident. She was previously their egg donor and surrogate for their son, so she's surprised he would reach out to her now. She never quite got over the heartbreak of handing over her baby, so when handed the opportunity to see him again, she jumps at the chance. Time spent together leads to bonding between them all, and Jeremy isn't sure he even wants to deny the attraction he feels for her anymore.
While going to college for a criminal justice degree, Adeline Winters needed extra money to pay all her bills. Being a surrogate for a childless couple was her choice to bring in more cash, and she now has her own thriving private investigation business. When the father of the child that she carried wants to speak with her, Adeline has no idea as to his reason. It seems Jeremy Kincaid thinks his wife was actually murdered two years ago, not accidentally killed when her car hit a pole.
Though Adeline is unconvinced at first, she does take Jeremy on as a client when he makes a good argument for her looking into whether the supposedly deceased Livia Colton could have had anything to do with the wreck. As facts are gathered and truths come out, it does seem as though something sinister could have occurred. When the wellbeing of the young boy is threatened, Adeline and Jeremy know all their focus must be on recovering him before it is too late.
There is already an emotional bond between Jeremy and Adeline because of how little Jamie came to be born. When they reconnect because of doubts about the death of his wife, it is very difficult for her to ignore the desire to also bond with the child. I could really sense the deep feelings Adeline had for the boy that she gave to two loving parents, yet she tried to make the best of the situation and concentrate on discovering what happened to Jeremy’s wife. He desperately wants to learn what took place when his spouse was out alone, as it has kept him from moving on, whether he admits it or not. Adding to the tension when Adeline and Jeremy are together is the sexual awareness each has of the other, and keeping it under control is not always easy. Jennifer Morey certainly took the couple on an emotional journey as they worked to uncover the truth.
MISSION: COLTON JUSTICE had me constantly changing my mind as to what was going on in the present along with what transpired in the past. As Adeline investigates, shocking information is unearthed, and I was definitely stunned by some of the news. Several suspenseful events had me wondering how everything was going to turn out. While answers pertaining to this story were learned, there is still a big question to be explored in a future book of the Coltons of Shadow Creek miniseries.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
This was such a fun mystery to read, I loved that there was plenty going on to keep the readers interesting. For instance the amount of drama that will occur when the surrogate gets to meet the baby she given birth to and seeing that attractive father again. I couldn't help but wondering how things would work out. I loved that there was plenty of close calls and moments where I just couldn't put the book down wondering what would happen next. There was a bit of romance and a couple steamy scene to keep things entertaining. Overall this was a pretty great book I enjoyed it.
