Long Time Gone (The Cimarron Legacy #2)

Title:  Long Time Gone (The Cimarron Legacy #2)
Author:  Mary Connealy
Pages:  304
Year:  2017
Publisher:  Bethany
My rating 5 out of 5 stars.
We are introduced to the Cimarron Ranch and the Bodin family in the first novel titled, No Way Up! Personally, I have been excitedly looking forward to this book as the story picks up right where the first book leaves off.  I assume the third book will bring to a conclusion the mystery behind who is attempting to take the ranch from the family and constantly attempting to kill the family.
In this book, the focus remains on solving the riddle of who is so focused on stealing the ranch and will get rid of whomever is in the way.  The author does a great job of mixing up tense moments of action, adventure and danger with a comical pause or a possible romance.  With the patriarch of the family in Denver healing from a serious broken leg with his wife beside him, the danger is ramping up and the siblings feel as if there isn’t anyone they can trust.  The man after them has hired many guns against the family and greed is pure motive for some of the hands to go against their bosses.
I love the female characters of Angie and Sadie along with Mel as they have true grit and are a determined force of females to be reckoned with should those intent on harming them cross their paths.  I enjoyed watching a budding romance and the family sticking together regardless of being separated by miles, especially because of the determined nature of whomever is on the warpath.
Read the first book and then this sequel to get caught up on the action, danger, romance, faith and family in the Cimarron Legacy series!  The stories will keep you turning pages for awhile!

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
