Description

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.

Heart-rending story... good overcomes misogyny

4.5 - NR can be hit or miss with me but when I love her...I REALLY love her. And I loved this one. With NR you know what you're going to get, and Come Sundown is no exception: light romance, a disturbing mystery, strong and independent female heroine, bull-headed yet kind and sensitive male hero, disgusting excuse for a human being baddie, and the good guys always win, the bad guys always get what's coming to them, and love conquers all. But this one seemed to go deeper than a typical NR novel, she doesn't seem to rely quite so much on the usual plot conveniences, and there is a definite message which borrows on disturbing themes right out of our current climate. At the rate NR pumps out a story, I have to assume she's been influenced by recent turns in the social and political zeitgeist. Anyway, excellent story, plot, characters, setting, and emotional build-up. In fact, I teared up a few times over some breakthrough moments for a very damaged character. A good novel is designed to play with the reader's emotions, but if not done well, it can feel like contrived manipulations unless cleverly arranged to build upon smartly written plot points, world-building, and character development. These moments felt so authentic, it was like I was there experiencing them with the characters. I have a few quibbles, but very few...not enough to expound upon nor ruin my experience. This is a great book for NR fans and also a good choice for a first NR read, especially for those reticent to give her a try. NR is not going to break into any exciting new literary movements, but she is damn good storytelling.

Alright

This book is alright. What really kept me coming back was Alice's story. I shed some tears for Alice and everything that she went through. While Bo and Cal are the main characters Alice's abduction and life are the real story lines. I have to say there was no real romance drama or real crazy romance story just a couple that used to be attracted to each other (when they were kids) that got reunited. Jesse and Chase's quirky romance was a lot more interesting. The narrator was great. She did a great Job bringing the characters to life. I always wish the ending included a bit more. The epilogue needed to be more detailed maybe a look into the future.

From JD Robb to Nora Roberts!

I, an avid JD Robb listener, was hesitant to try a Nora Roberts book - I thought it would be mushy romance, but I was pleasantly surprised to find strong female characters and multiple mysteries! I LOVED this book!

One of her best!

Although I wasn't sure at first if I was going to like it, this book turned out to be one of my favorites by Nora Roberts. There were times in the story when it broke my heart. Alice was braver and more resilient than many people would have been in that situation. The support of her family and community was amazing. There are many strong characters in this book to help keep the plot strong. I will definitely be listening to this book again.

Not sure how I made it through.

Very wordy. Many scenes went on and on with no real purpose. A lot of fluff mixed in with some heavy subject matter. Maybe I would have liked the men more if they didn't sound so misogynistic but the tone the narrator used made the good guys sound pompous.

this is not worth reading

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This was a really phoney story, nobody lives like that. Nobody is so perfect like that. Poorly written trash.

Hard to listen to

This story is very depressing and shocking. Just so much sadness that it was't fun to read. I skipped the book and read the end . Where did this come from? Not so much like Nora Roberts!

Sadly disappointed

I struggled to finish listening too this book which is a first for me. I felt the narration of male characters was cheesy. The dialogue seemed regurgitated from previous novels. Her trilogies are much better. Can I get a refund?

wanted to like but ended disappointed.

I really wanted to love this book. It started out great and it was going to be on the list of my favorite books. But the story just took a weird turn in the middle with the shooting that just seemed to be thrown in without having any real reason for it. Then the fight over the shooting was even more over the top ridiculous. I finished the book feeling like so much more could have been done with the storyline. At the end of Nora Roberts books I usually have a sadness because I want to know more about what happened to the characters after the book ended but this time I have no feelings like that.

Slow pace, hard to get into story

I struggled to stay with it and the combination of the slow narration and the slow pace of the story didn't do much to keep me interested. I could have skipped the first half of the book and been just fine. Normally I can rush right through a Nora Roberts book in no time, but this one was hard. With the rapes and brutality in Alice's storyline, it is definitely not a book to listen to in public. The killer was no surprise, but the ending was satisfying. I don't think I'll be rereading this one.
