Love. Lies. Murder. A lot can happen... COME SUNDOWN Bodine Longbow loves to rise with the dawn. As the manager of her family’s resort in Western Montana, there just aren’t enough hours in the day – for life, for work, for loved ones. She certainly doesn’t have time for love, not even in the gorgeous shape of her childhood crush Callen Skinner, all grown up and returned to the ranch. Then again, maybe Callen can change her mind, given time... But when a young woman’s body is discovered on resort land, everything changes. Callen falls under the suspicion of a deputy sheriff with a grudge. And for Bodine’s family, the murder is a shocking reminder of an old loss. Twenty-five years ago, Bodine’s Aunt Alice vanished, never to be heard of again. Could this new tragedy be connected to Alice’s mysterious disappearance? As events take a dramatic and deadly turn, Bodine and Callen must race to uncover the truth – before the sun sets on their future together.
Alice Bodine is heading home a little shamefacedly after leaving dramatically, perhaps, she wondered for a bit of attention as her sister is getting married.
She never makes it home after a sinister man picks her up on the roadside.
Her family run the Bodine ranch in Montana, popular and traditional, and the Bodine/Longbow family are pillars of the community.
Bodine Longbow herself, young and strong, runs the resort and is revered by staff and family alike, especially Callen, childhood crush.
As events run we see into the family and into Alice's hell and watch how strength and family are a force to be reckoned with.
I am a huge fan of Nora Roberts and thoroughly loved this offering. It is wonderful and addictive escapism and a real page turner.
Although I found it slightly slower to get into, once I did I was hooked.
A fabulous, well thought out plot and strong characters who you root for from the start.
A massive 5* from me and as always, I eagerly await Nora's next book!
