Reece Gilmour is the survivor of a brutal crime, the only survivor. She runs away and ends up in the town of Angel's Fist, somewhere she doesn't intend to stay long but, see's an ad in a window for a chef and decides to apply for the job, and ends up staying a lot longer than she intended.
Reece goes on a hike to the mountains and finds a woman being murdered, ina panic she runs and straight into Brody, when they go back all trace of the woman and her murderer are gone. With little evidence the authorities find it hard to believe Reece, seeing as she seems a little jumpy too, they just think its in her mind but, Brody believes her and follow a number of strange occurences that seem to hint that Reece is not wanted around and want her to leave.
Loved, loved, loved this book although I don't think Reece was the most interesting of characters she was definitely not un-likeable and given what happened to her in the past you can understand why she is the way she is, the events that happen just keep you wondering to the end, and I never thought the murderer was who it turned out to be!
Brilliant book, and keep some food nearby some of the descriptions Nora describes, what with Reece being a hef certainly make your mouth water, and Angel's Fist sounds a great place to live, Nora has a habit of making me want to live in places that she describes in her books.
