Nora Roberts - Come Sundown
A recent book from this prolific author. Nora Roberts which consistently delivers a story that has the reader turning the pages. Attractive, 'sassy' female characters, virile cowboy heroes, strong family connections, all set on a ranch in Western Montana that has diversified into weddings and other events with a ranching theme. Add into the mix a historic mystery plus a modern-day crime to add suspense and excitement, and it's a recipe for a good read. The perpetrator is not revealed until the final pages, and the suspense is kept going up to the end.
