The Boden clan thought their problems had ended with the death of a dangerous enemy, but have they truly uncovered the real plot to take their New Mexico ranch? Rancher Justin Boden is now in charge. He is normally an unshakable and rugged man, but 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, and Justin and the rest of the Bodens can turn their attention back to the dangers 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 uncover all the pieces before danger closes in on them, or is the threat to the ranch even bigger than any of the Bodens could imagine?

Long Time Gone by Mary Connealy is another great western by her which is a mixture of romance, action, faith and love of family. She weaves a tale that ropes you in and pulls you along with the Boden's as they face danger from unknown people. They don t know who they can trust and neither does the reader until it all unfolds.
I love a good western with cowboys, wilderness and a strong woman or two. This book has it all. The Boden's are being attacked and they aren't sure who is after them or why. They have to rely on each other, their faith, and all the while trying to lay a trap for the ones who are after them without anyone else being hurt or killed.
Justin, Cole, Heath and Sadie find an unlikely, but yet strong ally in Angie who is really a city girl with no country skills.
I found this book to be a wonderful mixture of action, humor and strong relatable characters. One of the favorite things in this book for me is to see how Angie finds herself and the strength she didn't think she had.
If you like a good book, with fun strong characters, a lot of action and a message of family, love, faith and strength then be sure to read this one.
I received this book for my honest opinion and review.
Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5Can't wait for the next book to come out!!July 2, 2017Booklover10Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Cimarron Legacy series has quickly become one of my favorite series. I have loved the action packed pages, the suspense, and the relationships in the Boden family. It's not perfect, like any family, but they have learned to stick together and to make sacrifices for each other. They have also learned to work together to accomplish one goal. In the case with this book, they are having to come together to figure out who wants them off this ranch.
While you could read this book without having read book 1, in my honest opinion, you need to read book 1 first. You won't be sorry that you did and it will put this book into a better frame. The book picks up right where the last one ended. There really isn't a recap of the story, although you find hints of it sprinkled throughout the book. I liked how the action picked up right away. I felt like I had jumped into the middle of a movie set and had to catch up a little since it had been a little while since I had read the first book. This is a series that I want to reread again once all of the books are out so I can tie them all together in my head!
When I say that there is a lot of action in this book, there is a lot! There are some deaths, too. I was surprised by the traitors and by the ending. I had some suspicians, but I didn't want to truly believe that was who behind all of it!
Angie was a character who was easy to like. I felt like she grew up within the story and it was neat to watch her progress. I did laugh towards the end when she reaches the height of her newfound bravery! Justin was just a sweet cowboy who really never thought he'd find a girl. He was a little hard-headed, but with certain events happening, he came to see what everyone else saw in him. The story focuses on Justin and Angie, but you definitely get a lot of action from the other members of the Boden family, too. It's a book that you won't want to put down!
I am anxiously awaiting book 3 to come out! Everything hasn't been resolved yet and I can't wait to see what happens next.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Faith, Loyalty, Danger, and Love!May 20, 2017ShannahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book LITERALLY picks up where No Way Out ended (therefore, I recommend reading the first book in the series before this one). From the moment Cole is shot, tensions run high. There are a myriad of dangers facing the Boden clan and Connealy had me gripping my seat, hoping to uncover the danger but knowing theres another book in the series so it wont end with this one!
In No Way Out we meet confident and rugged Justin Boden who understands running a ranch and remains unshakeable. Long Time Gone shows us another side of Justin. You can immediately sense that his brothers injury really shook his faith in himself and those around him. The only part of his character that seems unshaken is his protective streak. Enter Angie DuPree! Its hilarious to me to watch Justin bumble through his courtship of Angie and it definitely helped to tone down the seriousness of the story.
Their faith in God, loyalty to their ranch and family, and love for one other shines through every page of the book as we watch Angie and Justin grow together, Cole heal, and the Bodens grow closer together to face the dangers that seem to be surrounding them. From start to finish, Mary Connealy delivers another action packed historical romance that is sure to please everyone!

MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Long Time GoneMay 17, 2017MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love Mary Connealy's books! LONG TIME GONE picks up right where NO WAY UP left off. Someone is out to kill the Boden family and take over their Cimarron Ranch in New Mexico. The father, Chance Boden, severely broke a leg in an avalanche so he and his wife are in Denver where he can be treated by a specialist. That leaves their grown children, Cole, Justin, and Sadie, plus a few trusted employees (including Heath Kincaid, who married Sadie in book one) to run the ranch and try to figure out who keeps shooting at them. With Cole shot at the end of book one, this burden falls mainly to the others. Things are complicated even further for Justin when he develops an overwhelming need to protect, and be with, Angie, who recently came to help her aunt at the local orphanage. There is betrayal by ranch hands they thought they could trust, a kidnapping, and more shooting, but also humor in Mary Connealy's writing. Though we have to wait till October for the next book, TOO FAR DOWN, there was still a profound sense of satisfaction when I finished the book.

Fans will want to read No Way Up first as this book does not alone. I did read No Way Up, but it was so long since I've read it that I forgot somethings and I was scrambling to remember who so and so were and how were they important!
Written in Ms. Connealy's trademark style, this historical western is sure to keep pages turning as you wait to see if Cole survives, who is behind the attacks, and whether or not the parents were truly in danger even though they were a long ways away. Who wanted the Boden clan dead? Why were they on a hit list? So many questions...
A touch of humor is liberally mixed in with the historical romance and the wild west, and fans won't get enough of this Old West adventure. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own."
