A powerful and passionate novel of suspense from Nora Roberts – the world’s greatest storyteller
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.
Confessions out of the way first. This is my first Nora Roberts book. I know. What rock have I been living under, right? But as first books go, I think that I chose pretty well and the author’s easy writing style will ensure that I’ll be back for more.
This was a story with a very distinct tone. Not flash or loud. The suspense was quite subtly teased throughout the narrative, such that I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
There was quite a cast of characters to wrap one’s head around, but each was very distinctly described. But not only that, the story was told from multiple points of view, and although initially a little confusing, I felt that this constant changing assisted in keeping the reader somewhat on edge.
The narrative was peppered liberally with mini reveals and misdirections which made the ultimate reveal all the the more surprising.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
