If you have ever been to Wyoming, you probably came away in awe of the Tetons. Seeing those peaks is in some ways even more moving than the Grand Canyon. And on a hot day in July, it's nice to think about being in Wyoming. The Tetons are a primary spiritual character in this book, helping to inspire the fictional characters to take the right steps.
A fragile woman, Reece Gilmore, finds herself stuck in Angel's Fist, Wyoming (not too far from Jackson Hole) after he radiator hose splits. Needing to make a few bucks, she impulsively applies for the cook's job at short-order Angel Food. Clearly, she knows what she's doing. While most people would freak out from the pressure, it's almost a relief to Reece, as it takes her minds off other issues.
Gradually, we learn that Reece is on the roam to try to erase very unhappy memories. I won't say more because Ms. Roberts does a nice job of letting the details emerge in the novel.
Meeting the people in Angels Fist soon makes Reece think that she might like to stay . . . except for one problem: Reece observes a murder while on her first hike. But no one can find a body . . . or signs of a murder. Is Reece crazy?
The incident does have one positive element, it brings Reece into close contact with Jamsion P. Brody (who prefers to be called Brody), a mystery novelist whose posterior is causing much conversation among the younger women in town. Their relationship blossoms in unexpected ways . . . both for the reader and for them.Read more ›
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.
The (usually two) obligatory hot love scenes between the hero and heroine I usually skip. I guess repetition with minor differences is part of the hard-wired human need that Roberts taps into very successfully, but the love scenes for every hero and heroine I now skip with a roll of the eyes and get back to the good stuff. Sometimes the heroes are very close to being jerks as well. Brody was better than some. When Roberts writes strong lead men, they sometimes come over as 'No means yes' abusers (uggh). Again, when that starts happening it's time to flip the pages.
I guessed whodunnit early on but watching how the rest of the cast found out was entertaining.
The above aside, I thought Angels Fall was an excellent curl up with a good book read. Nora Roberts is definitely an author with a strong presence on my bookshelf.
Ms Roberts is extremely talented at picking difficult subjects such as post traumatic stress syndrome and weaving them into a believable whole. This book was overwhelmingly about Reece and her recovery and was very strongly written. This was interspersed with some great humorous moments that neatly lightened the book and stopped it from being too heavy.
The only downside to the book being totally Reece's was that the development of some of the secondary characters suffered for it and they weren't as richly drawn as a regular Nora Robert's reader has come to expect. I particulary would have liked Brody's character to have been a little more fleshed out. But these are minor quibbles in a great read.
In an aside, it has to be said that the amount of typo's in this book was horrendous and certainly interrupted the flow of the story on more than one occasion. Shame on you Piatkus.
Great read. Recommended.
