We would like to thank Gail and Kathy very much for their contribution to our library! We always appreciate it.
For our Featured Fiction of the week we have Come Sundown, by Nora Roberts.
Bodine Longbow’s peaceful life of running her family’s Montana ranch resort is disrupted when her high school crush-turned-new-manager Callen Skinner is accused of being a murderer. To complicate matters further, Bodine’s long-lost aunt Alice makes an unexpected return, traumatized and bearing horrifying tales of being held prisoner for twenty years by a violent man.
As Bodine, Cal, and her family care for the fragile woman, they begin to wonder whether her story, Cal’s predicament, and the recent rash of murders are connected. Tensions mount, and danger creeps ever closer, until they know only one thing for certain: no one is safe…
According to Publishers Weekly, “What makes this novel most engaging is Roberts’ ability to suffuse her story with rich details of one family’s life, as well as sizzling doses of romance and mystery.”
