Raincoast Books – Come Sundown! ~Giveaway

I have been enjoying Nora Roberts’ books for years now. In particular, I love her J. D. Robb series – I’ve read all of them! I have no idea how she manages to come up with so many ideas for so many books – she’s only written over two *hundred* – but she is certainly a fount of books!

Come Sundown” was certainly no exception! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! At the beginning of the book, in the Prologue, we learn about young Alice Bodine. She’s on her way back home, after leaving home abruptly the day of her sister’s wedding three years before. She’s just miles from home when her car dies and she gets picked up by someone who’s going to take her the rest of the way. Except he doesn’t.

Jump forward to the present, and we find Bodine (a young lady named after her Mother’s family name) running the Bodine Resort. She works alongside other members of her family to keep both the Ranch and the Resort running smoothly. As life will be, some unexpected changes cause some new hires, one being an old friend from her youth, Callen Skinner. There are sparks! However, I love how Nora’s books are never just about romance. She is a fantastic mystery author! You see, not long after the book begins, one of the ranch’s employees is found alongside the road, murdered. Then there’s the deputy that has a desire for revenge on the aforementioned Callen. And then we keep seeing glimpses of Alice, coming forward through the years. We see the rough life she has been forced to keep, just miles from her home ranch.

In the midst of another murder, some hot confrontations between said deputy and Callen (which just makes you want said deputy to be the murderer!), Alice escapes. Now the family at Bodine ranch is a close family – sure there’s bickering and disagreements – but there’s also an awful lot of love and closeness. So when Alice is found half frozen on the side of the road and is brought to the hospital and recognized by the Sheriff, suddenly there are a lot of questions. Questions about where Alice has been all these years. Questions about who abused her for so many years. Questions about where Alice will go now and what’s she’s able for!

And then there’s the ongoing search for the murderer of the two young girls and, added to that, the search for Alice’s kidnapper! Yes, Nora keeps you glued to the pages as you read this book! There’s just so much happening, between blossoming romance between three different couples, murders, plans around the ranch and resort, the ups and downs of life. You will not be disappointed with this book – but don’t blame me if you stay up all night reading it! I say, good luck putting it down!
