The Cimarron Legacy #2

Someone Will Stop At Nothing To Claim The Boden Homestead!!

Cover Art 
 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 Thoughts:

I started reading books from Mary Connealy years ago and when I hear she has a new one coming out I can hardly wait.  
Long Time Gone is the second book in her Cimarron Legacy series, yet with that being said this book is also a stand alone.  I do recommend reading the entire series to get the full impact of the series.  She released a prequel novella, The Boden Birthright, which gives a wonderful background for this series.  It's available in all e-book formats for free from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and ChristianBook.  
 I was quickly swept into this story and held there until the last page turned.  The setting is the New Mexico Territory in the 1880's and focuses on Justin Boden.  He is rough and tough, but underneath it all has the softest heart.  He and Cole, his brother, don't always see eye to eye on everything, but both always put family first.  Justin is a protector by nature and he will do whatever is necessary to protect his family.  As important factors emerge Justin realizes things are much more complicated than he ever thought.  One complication he never imagined took the form of Angie DuPree, the woman who had been assisting the doctor in taking care of Cole.  
This story has elements of suspense, mystery, romantic tension, and faith.
