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.

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.
