This was the first book I read by Nora Roberts. I had the impression that she wrote sappy romance novels, but I was mistaken. In this book she expertly combined mystery, suspense, murder, and romance into a capivating story that was beautifully written. I have never been to Wyoming, but her descriptions painted such a vivid picture for my imagination that I am interesting in visiting Wyoming now.
great read-she pulls you in and keeps you there-hard to put down. The location is described so beautifully, you can almost see it.
The best book I've read in a long time.
Once again, Nora Roberts superbly writes a murder mystery that keeps you turning the pages. The heroine is very likeable because she is imperfect like most of us. It was gratifying to see her successfully reach each milestone during her recovery process from a horrifically tragic event. The best part was she didn't have to do it alone. She makes some wonderful friends in Angels Fist, Wyoming, and I guarantee you will fall in love with each one of these characters. This includes the reluctant hero, Brody, who did not sign up for the job and never wanted any part of the action. But he's a keeper! The dialogue throughout the book is wonderful because it makes you feel as if you are right there watching the story unfold. That is the gift of a good writer and Nora Roberts has hit the mark again!
This is the second Nora Roberts book that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed both of them. In this story, Reece Gilmore is trying to put her life back together after being the sole survivor of a brutal crime back in Boston. She has been drifting around the country and settles down in Angel's Fist, Wyoming because that is where her car broke down and she ran out of money. She takes a job as a short-order cook in the local diner and tries to act as normal as possible. She is doing an okay job of it until she goes hiking one day and witnesses a brutal murder. She is the only witness, and the police can't find a body, or a missing person, or any evidence of a crime. No one believes her except for a gruff loner named Brody. Everyone else thinks she is having flashbacks from the crime back in Boston. Reece must prove that there was really a murder or else she has fears for her own sanity. I just couldn't put this book down - the mystery kept me guessing until the very end.
This book was awsome. I read a preveiw of it in another book and searched for this book for two months afterward. It was worth the search I loved it. One of Nora Roberts Best books.
