I’m excited to be on another blog tour this week, yesterday was The Silence by Katharine Johnson, today is Come Sundown by one of my old favourite authors Nora Roberts.
Nora Roberts is a huge bestselling author of more than 200 novels and her latest one Come Sundown is another cracker! Published last week in hardback and available from Amazon in various formats.
So now onto the best parts! The blurb… and of course my review.
What is Come Sundown all about?
What did I think of it?
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……….
I have lost count the number of Nora Robert’s books I have read, they are all my easy reading books. Family saga’s that don’t take a huge amount of brain power, but are suspenseful and intriguing nonetheless. Come Sundown did not disappoint me.
My sister has visited Montana where Come Sundown is set but I haven’t, although I have seen some spectacular photos of the scenery and the views are stunning. This is captured in the book as well and only adds to the tense, dramatic plot.
The book starts off with Alice being abducted in 1991 when she on her way to the Bodine Ranch. I found this part hard to read. Throughout the book I found myself thinking about Alice. No matter what the other two main character’s Bodine (ranch manager) and Callen Skinner (Cowboy) got up to. Their blossoming romance I suppose was a little light-hearted side line.
Come Sundown for me deserves 4 out of 5 stars for keeping me entertained with the various twists and turns.
