Come Sundown

Nora Roberts

I've not read any of Nora's previous novels ('but how?' I hear you bookworms cry) but have heard fantastic things, so jumped at the chance to read her latest novel 'Come Sundown'.

From the off, the tone of the book battles between idyllic life on a family ranch and resort in Montana and a dark, twisted situation of a young girl accepting help from the wrong stranger. Flitting between the 90s and the present day, we understand how these two worlds finally collide.

This review contains some minor spoilers of plot points hereon!

Although initially taken aback by the brutality of the plot in parts, I became hooked on the story. I've got to be honest though, there are a lot of characters to take into account and their family relations to one another, which I struggled to get to grips with at first. Not until near the end was I finally able to figure out who's child belonged to whom but that being said, it didn't diminish the storyline.

Alice's character in particular is resounding, particularly throughout and following her terrible ordeals. I love the fierceness of all the female characters in this book too and the relationships they each have within their family. In a world of cowboys, it's great to see the women shine through.

There's a huge plot twist in this that I definitely didn't see coming and it resolved to be the kind of thrilling story that's just my cup of tea. Overall, I found the story gripping and will definitely be looking up Nora Roberts' archive of novels for future reading.
