Luck lands in Hannah Hudson’s lap changing her life forever. With her heart filled with hope, she leaves her tiny desert apartment and heads for a ranch in Colorado.

Shortly after arriving, her good luck disappears. A tragic accident occurs—or was it a murder? She’s alone, far from her comfort zone. There is no Dairy Queen, no hospital, nothing along the winding mountain road that links the ranch to the town. The unfamiliar seclusion threatens to take her breath away.

Reluctantly, she teams up with rancher, Trace McAllister, who helps her learn the ropes around the ranch and in the bedroom.

 Mystery, suspense, romance, a smart dog, and one intuitive horse.                   

COLORADO TAKEDOWN has it all. (Did I mention the chickens?)
