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..........
Nora Roberts is brilliant at telling stories full of suspense, drama and a little romance and Come Sundown follows this tried and tested formula.
Starting with the abduction of Alice, a young girl who is walking home in 1991 ..... we then move on to the present day and to the home where she should have arrived at is the Bodine Ranch in Montana, a huge sprawling working ranch and resort where we are introduced to all the young girl's family.
Bodine Longbow is the feisty manager, along with her two brothers and father, but there's no doubt she's in charge and she knows what she wants.
The total opposite is the abducted girl, Alice, who suffers an unimaginable time at the hands of her brutal abductor, which I found so uncomfortable to read.
Throw in a handsome cowboy in the shape of Callen Skinner, returning back to the ranch, sparks flying in all directions with Bodine, the murder of two young women, the Deputy Sheriff bearing an age old grudge against Callen and wanting to pin the murders on him, lively relationships, horses, beautiful Montana scenery, this all adds up to one compelling, dark and dramatic storyline.
