With her past couple of titles, Roberts (as opposed to her typically grittier moniker, J.D. Robb) is moving into more complex and darker storytelling, to terrific effect.

Synopsis

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.

Good
Reviewed by Carolyn Haley on May 29 2017

Like all her romantic suspense novels, this latest one is reliable with its tropes while presenting a unique scenario, making for not just a beach read or rainy-day read, but a play-hooky-from-work read impossible to put down.

Above average
Reviewed by Kaetrin on Jul 27 2017

As a romance, Come Sundown is a little thin. Maybe a C+/B- in terms of readerly romantic satisfaction. As a thriller/general fiction book however, it rates at least a B+. So, I’m going with a B for the overall grade. It’s hard to read parts of this book but Alice made it totally worth it.
