"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"-- Provided by publisher.

The book has an interesting concept in that it tells us about running a ranch and resort as a business. To make it interesting there is romance and suspense thrown in. Good idea but I wish the 'Suspense' did not involve so much violence.
The Bodines and Longbows run the ranch with three generations of women playing an active part. Alice leaves home never to return. Alice's life and the Bodines' are described in parallel till they coalesce in a horrifying way; will there be a happy ending? Read and find out!

I started out enjoying this book, but then had difficulty with the character of Bodine. The character was someone whom I could not like because she had to do everything and it seemed she was offended if someone else had an idea or a solution. After seeing the number of people waiting for this novel I decided to return it to the library and perhaps give it another try at another time.

Though it was well-written (as all of hers are) I found it a hard read as it was incredibly violent/brutal -I found myself struggling to get through it for that reason -I hope she goes on the lighter side for her next book.

A very good book. It had romance as well as suspense and I liked the way the family members and others had each other's back. When Alice was a teenager and took off, her family thought that she just didn't want to bother with them, little did they know that she had been kidnapped when she was trying to come home. Bodine and the family were busy running a resort as well as the ranch and when Callen Skinner came back home, the sparks started flying between Bodine and Cal. Meanwhile women are going missing and everyone is on edge. This is the type of book you won't want to put down.

Not one of Nora Robert's best books. The main character, Bodine, has very similar characteristics of many many previous heroines in a Roberts novel (cocky, sarcastic, dominant and pig headed). While I like a strong woman, I found the continuous thread that absolutely no one could run the ranch or make a decision except Bodine was simply unplausible. She worked with both parents, fully functioning intelligent people, but they were simply faded into the background, as well as her brothers, grandmothers, ranch managers etc. The world ran on bitchy Bodine.

This book is disappointing. The main character, Bodine, is one-dimensional. Even though she runs a successful western resort, her character has limited and stilted vocabulary. The character of Alice was interesting, but once again the vocabulary became repetitive. The rest of the characters were forgettable. I find the author is re-using scenes from previous work. Total waste of time.

This story was "ok", good but not great. I've read better novels by this author.

Split decision on this one. The main character, Bodine, was not very interesting. She runs a ranch in Montana. Okay. Her sister Alice, who is missing for many years, has a much more compelling story. Yet Alice is not given as much attention as Bodine. I found myself skimming Bodine's story waiting to get to plots more interesting. Overall, not one of Roberts best but I give it a modest thumbs up.

Wow! What an action packed book. Nora will be sending you on a roller coaster of a ride in this one, have the Kleenex ready. Loved the characters and the double dose of romantic couples. Picture pretty setting. Really good read.
