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.

She couldn't remember a thing, not even who she was. But it was clear Bailey James was in trouble. Big trouble. And she desperately needed private eye Cade Parris to help her find out just what kind. Surely she wasn't a criminal - but then what on earth was she doing with a bag full of cash and a stunning blue diamond as big as a baby's fist?

All Nora Roberts books should be read by women. Preferably Emily Sutton-Smith or Kate Rudd.

Would you try another book from Julia London and/or Tanya Eby?

Yes

What was most disappointing about Julia London’s story?

This story was not believable to me. Outrageous emotions based on too little evidence to evoke such reactions.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Tanya Eby is not one of my favorite narrators. Her sentences tend to end with her voice lilting up, which gets annoying after awhile.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I always like the continuation of characters.
