A saga of love, 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.

Nora Roberts is a GREAT author......she always has strong women & men roles, with suspense and predictability in her writing. The good guys always win..... which is comforting to me with all the evil and craziness that is in our world today.

I really enjoy Nora Roberts' (and J.D. Robb's) writing but this one was too predictable to me.

every once in a while I have a hankering for a Nora Roberts book. This one wasn't the one. Almost quit halfway through. Alice intrigued me though and her recovery. That was the only thing that kept me going. Don't think I'll have than hankering again if she keeps writing like this. Used to really enjoy her writing.

This book was a total flop. It was creepy and Ms. Roberts didn't bother fleshing out much of anything, plot, characters, etc. It was confusing. The characters are just so-so, and it was hard to work up any response. The two Grammies were pale imitations of the same grandmother, great grandmother characters in "The Liar". It's pretty sad that the most interesting characters were a horse and his owner....... If you insist on reading this, get it out of the Library, don't waste your money purchasing it.

This book was a big flop. I have read a lot of Nora Roberts books & loved them all. I kept looking at the cover to be sure she wrote this book & it wasnt someone else that maybe she just assisted on. After 50 pages I was going to return it, decided to stick with it a little longer, by 100 pages was convinced there was no story to this book at all. Nothing but the main character & her daily life running a business, how monotonous. I kept thinking I wanted to know about the missing people so decided to stick with it anyway. That part of the story was the mystery, not about what Bodine was eating for breakfast. She should have focused more on that part of the story of the missing & left out the day to day grind story. What a major disaster for Ms Roberts.

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.
