Summary

Come Sundown named as one of Whoopi Goldberg's "Favorite Summer Reads" on ABC's The View and one of NY Post's biggest blockbuster "Whizbang Books" of the summer.

A novel of suspense, family ties, and twisted passions from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Obsession...

The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it’s kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine’s aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don’t talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she’s dead. But she isn’t. She is not far away, part of a new family, one she never chose - and her mind has been shattered...

When a bartender leaves the resort late one night, and Bo and Cal discover her battered body in the snow, it’s the first sign that danger lurks in the mountains that surround them. The police suspect Cal, but Bo finds herself trusting him - and turning to him as another woman is murdered and the Longbows are stunned by Alice’s sudden reappearance. The twisted story she has to tell about the past - and the threat that follows in her wake - will test the bonds of this strong family, and thrust Bodine into a darkness she could never have imagined.

Average book, slow story, weak plot

It's a thriller. One main story line that's pretty bleak. Not much else goes on in the book and it's not particularly redemptive. A little too slow and not enough action. Didn't captivate, wouldn't read another of her books sadly

Excellent

It was another fantastic story by Nora Roberts. Just finished it and going to read it again, loved it. It is different from other books of hers that I've read, I cried and laughed and was shocked by some of the revelations. It still has a lovely romance to it. All round excellent read. Another amazing book by Nora Roberts.

Great saga

Very well narrated. Often female find it harder to do a convincing male voice but this one excellent. Length allows one to settle into a story and characters. If you like wide sky montana cowboy-type love stories: One for you

Superb as always

As a huge fan I was looking forward to hearing this story...and I wasn't disappointed as I couldn't put it down! Maybe it was easy to guess the outcome but that doesn't detract from the great characters and the story! I cried and laughed in equal measure!

Good Book by Nora Roberts

I love Nora when she writes as JD Robb. This is a good story, Nora shows an idyllic family living on a Montana Dude Ranch and the missing family member, who disappeared 25 years earlier.
I found Alice's story hard to read. The position she found herself in was a woman's worst fear. I expect you are intended to know, as I realised who Alice's son, was very early in thew story.
The narration was good - well worth it's credit

Seemingly two different writers

This book seems to have been written by two different writers. It has one really engrossing, well imagined and well-written story threaded through it, which is well worth listening to. But it's padded out with a totally different genre and style of writing, which isn't worth listening to. It's like Thomas Harris (Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon) has been forced into a writing partnership with someone who writes really poor Romance stories that 15 year old girls read (Danielle Steele?).

I did finish it - because the good side of the story kept me going - but it was difficult to listen to the rest. The worst bit was having to listen to lengthy descriptions of the processes of the admin department of a family ranch business. Oh, and the cringing sex scenes. The best bit - all of the good part of the story, which was moving and disturbing but totally gripping. That part was like an episode of Criminal Minds.

I'd say read it because it is really good in parts, but listen to the boring bits on double speed.
