[Book Review] ALWAYS TIME TO DIE by Elizabeth Lowell


Jessica reviews ALWAYS TIME TO DIE by Elizabeth Lowell (William Morrow, 2005)

Set in present day Taos, New Mexico, Always Time to Die, by Elizabeth Lowell is a romantic suspense novel that relies on a lot of dialogue and an action oriented plot for its fast pace.  

Professional genealogist Carolina (Carly) May has been hired by the aging Winifred Castillo to write the Castillo family history, but when Carly arrives in Taos, she is faced with more than just boxes of old papers and photographs. Carly has to unravel the convoluted ties between the Castillo and Quintrell families, uncovering unsavory details of Winifred’s recently deceased brother-in-law, simply known as “The Senator.”  

The Senator’s son, Josh, is carrying on the strong family tradition of political ambitions, and wishes for nothing more than for Carly to leave his family's history alone. With the help of the mysterious, brooding, Dan Duran, can Carly overcome obstacles and attacks to discover the astonishing ties that bind so many people together in the small town before she is silenced for good?

Readers with an interest in strong professional female characters, unique geographic settings, historical detail, genealogy, or family secrets would find this book right up their alley. If you read this and enjoy it, you may also enjoy books by Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, Barbara Wood, and Jayne Ann Krentz.
