The dilemma I have with a new Nora Roberts novel is whether to enjoy it in small bites or devour it. Once Come Sundown's heart-wrenching story got me in its grips, there was no question of taking my time. I couldn’t go to sleep without knowing how it ended.
Riveting and a little spooky, this debut novel kept me on the edge of my seat. I felt like I was in the swamp with Charlie, sharing her disturbing dreams about a young boy lost, drifting in a boat. Grieving the recent loss of her 4-year-old son and turning her journalistic talents to writing about a 30-year-old missing child case, Charlie can’t ignore the messages in her dreams -- they may be leading her to something real and true. I couldn't put it down and yet I didn't want it to end even as I wanted to know the answer to the mystery. This is the first book in a planned trilogy; I can’t wait for the sequels!
