“This is my first book from Justine Davis and it certainly will not be my last!! It feels wrong to say that I enjoyed this book considering the subject matter of the story, but I really did. I have always had a fascination with the Amish and I loved the concept of this story of a non-Amish woman and an Amish man falling in love. I loved Caleb with Emma and I was so routing for their HEA. Oh, and how could I not love Katie, Ruthie and Grace!!! The part of the story that was difficult was reading about the abductions of the girls and in the end part of this plot is still unresolved.
I am not sure how this is going to work since the rest of the books in The Coltons Of Eden Falls series are all by different authors. I can only hope that I get to see more of Caleb and Emma throughout the series. Aside from that, Colton Destiny was a great way to spend a couple of hours and I can't wait to read Colton's Ranch Refuge, Colton's Deep Cover, and Colton's Showdown. I will also definitely be checking out more from Justine Davis.
4 out of 5 rating.

“Very good book, first in a series. Emma has returned to her hometown to help investigate the disappearance of three young Amish girls. She has been investigating a similar problem in Ohio. When she starts her investigation she needs to talk to all the members of the community, including the families of the missing girls. When she gets to Caleb Troyer there is something about him that appeals to her. She finds herself spending more time in his company and that of his three children. I liked Emma and her determination to find the missing girls. I also really liked the respect she had for the Amish people and their way of life. She was fighting her attraction to Caleb because she knows that their worlds are too different. She also discovered as the days went on that the peace of Caleb's world was soothing her own demons from an event two years earlier. I also really liked Caleb. As a widower he was the only parent for his girls. I loved how caring he was with them, and how much he wanted them to be happy. He knows that they need a woman in their lives but is content to let the community help him with that. He feels tremendous guilt over the death of his wife, feeling that he should have been able to do something to save her. When his attraction to Emma becomes stronger and stronger he doesn't know what to do. He wants Emma in his life, but he doesn't see how they can combine their lives. I found the end of the book very interesting, even though the mystery still hasn't ended. I will be interested to see the end of the series and how Caleb and Emma get their happy ending.”ScoutmomSKF wrote this review Thursday, August 2, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?
