Come Sundown Summary

Come Sundown - 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.

Come Sundown Review

  • Author?

    By Hannah Brinnah
    I have read many of Nora Roberts books and I enjoyed this one very much. That being said, I firmly believe this was not written by her. Perhaps a collaboration, but too many things about the book just weren’t Roberts. Also, her books are smoother, they just flow. This one was a bit choppy, characters left undeveloped and story lines that went nowhere. I did enjoy the break from long drawn out obnoxious sex scenes.....not my thing, I usually skim over them in her other books. They get tiresome after a while! Loved the descriptive narrative about the countryside and horses....well done. The characters names were just plain stupid.

    I thoroughly enjoy reading books by Nora Roberts who entertains me with her eclectic style of writing on a variety and broad range of material. Her style keeps the reader interested from the first chapter to the conclusion and/or epilogue of her books. I was entertained, saddened, and chuckled at various points throughout the book...particularly with the downs and ups of Alice and of Chase, Callen, Bodine and other characters interspersed in the book.

    Never miss a book by Nora Roberts. I have to say this one made me very uncomfortable. Too close to today’s happenings, and more like something to expect in her J.D. Robb’s books. Always a well written book with well written characters.
  • Reignited my love of reading

    It’s been a while since I’ve read anything that I was sad when it ended! Thoroughly enjoyed this book! Wish it was a series.

  • Romance and thriller all in one

    I couldn’t put it down most nights! Just one more, love, tragedy, triumph all wrapped into one. She always writes the best books!
  • Where’s Nora?

    By Coco Reads
    Decent enough story, however it’s definitely not consistent with Nora’s style of writing. No way Nora herself wrote this book.
  • Haven’t read it trouble seeing

    I read this book because Whoopi Goldberg recommended it and it was such a great read. My very 1st Nora Roberts book and the story felt so real I think I finished it in less than a day
