Justin Boden is on a mission to find out who is threatening his family and their New Mexico ranch. None of his family is safe. He's determined to do what he can to protect them and the new arrival to town who gets thrown into their midst. The more time he spends with Angie, the more he's sure she's not ranch material.
Angie DuPree longs to stand on her own and learn not to depend on others, but she keeps finding herself relying on Justin's strength and protection. After her failed marriage, she has no interest in entering another doomed relationship.
Can the two come to an agreement?
Long Time Gone is book two in Mary Connealy's The Cimarron Legacy series. While this story gives a fair amount of backstory from the first book No Way Up, I still found it quite enjoyable. Mary has a way of creating characters that pull the reader into the story. Well done, Mary.
