Long Time Gone

long time gone


The Boden clan thought their problems had ended with the death of a dangerous enemy, but have they truly uncovered the real plot to take their New Mexico ranch? Rancher Justin Boden is now in charge. He is normally an unshakable and rugged man, but with his brother, Cole, shot and in mortal danger, even a tough man faces doubts. And it doesn’t help that Angie DuPree, the assistant to the doctor trying to save Cole, is as distracting a woman as Justin ever laid eyes on.

With her and the doc’s timely skills, Cole looks to be on the mend, and Justin and the rest of the Bodens can turn their attention back to the dangers facing them. It’s clear now that everything that’s occurred is part of a much bigger plot that could date back to a decades-old secret. Can they uncover all the pieces before danger closes in on them, or is the threat to the ranch even bigger than any of the Bodens could imagine?

Mary Connealy has written the second novel in the Cimarron Ranch series. Long Time Gone is definitely not a stand alone novel. If you haven’t read the first one you better get started before you read this book.

I honestly don’t know what I expected from this book. I know when you read Connealy she always follows a certain form in her writing. Two people meat, there are sparks, then trouble, last the devote themselves to each other and marriage.

While most of the time I enjoy Connealy’s simplistic plots this book just left me disappointed. For me there just wasn’t any chemistry. Angie just fell flat in so many ways for me. I also found Justin, almost obnoxious at times.

This kind of review is very rare for me. Normally I like Connealy’s books for a relaxing read. I really do hope Cole’s story in the third book is better.
