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.

Jamie Beck is one of the most eloquent of writers. Her stories have always got an underlying moral theme which is unmissable but in no way spoils the storyline. Her diction is educated and grammatically spot on.
This is another highly listenable / readable tale and for a days enjoyable reading shouldn’t be missed . Not my normal genre but I cannot leave her books unread.

The mystery of their deaths stretches back to the Second World War, a time when Great Britain was threatened by invasion.

I’ve waited to write a review as I wanted to listen to all three books in this series.
I’m glad I have because now I can say the series deserves 5*for each book. They were exciting and enjoyable and very hard to turn off. I love Elle’s kick-ass heroines ( Apocalypsis had one in that great series). Hoping that this trilogy will be added to

I don’t know what it is really, about Veronica’s books , as they’re not my particular genre , but once picked up/ turned on I just can’t put them down. She’s a terrific story teller and although this story isn’t full of intrigue and action it’s a quiet refined story of “ a family”.
Very highly recommended
