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.

Romance: Dangerous passion
Romance and suspense entwine at a sprawling ranch and upscale resort in Come Sundown by Nora Roberts. Bodine Longbow’s family has lived and worked in western Montana for generations, and she currently runs their luxurious resort. When old friend Callen Skinner returns to the area and gets a job at the resort’s ranch, he and Bodine start circling each other. Romance is in the air, but so is danger. Twenty-five years ago, Bodine’s aunt ran off and never returned. Now young women in the area are disappearing—and then turning up dead. Bodine, her family and Callen continue providing leisure activities for their guests, but the beautiful countryside now contains a new menace. Roberts’ latest is an engrossing read that celebrates family ties, Western landscapes and, as always, the love between a man and a woman.

She battles succumbing to it as they attend several prenuptial events, but soon they are enjoying each other’s company and that of a rescued dog, Tulip. Gavin’s the first to declare his love, but before Mac can reciprocate, the wedding day is upon them. There are more obstacles to happiness following the vows, and Mac must work for her forever.
