Book Review: Long Time Gone

From the Back:

Someone Will Stop at Nothing to Claim the Boden Homestead!
The Boden clan thought their problems had ended with the death of a dangerous enemy, but have they uncovered the real plot to take their 1880s New Mexico ranch? Justin Boden is a top rancher and a rugged man, and yet 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. Now Justin and the rest of the Bodens can turn their attention back to the threats 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 pull together all the pieces before danger closes in on them, or is the risk of losing the ranch even greater than any of them could imagine?
My Reflections:
Long Time Gone is book two in the Cimarron Legacy, and although you could probably read it as a stand-alone, I would not recommend it. Too many details will be lost, and the essence of the story may turn murky. The mystery and danger jump start this story from page one, so saddle up your horse and get ready for the ride.
Although not my all-time favorite book from this author, I did find that I quite enjoyed the rough and tumble action and adventure. The plot is well thought out and includes many elements of surprise. I also fell in love with the character Angie, she is brave, spunky and has the tenacity to push through the trials of her life. Let's see if she can get past her hurt and let Justin into her life.

Cole can't seem to get Angie out of his mind, and heart. Although she is the last person, he ever thought he would be attracted to. Her penchant for danger and mishap lead them into all kinds of trouble. Angie is not what a cowhand looks for in a wife, but Cole is discovering that sometimes matters of the heart are entirely illogical!

Long time gone will appeal to those who love western heroes and lovable heroines. I am looking forward to Mary Connealy's next book in this series.
