Reece Gilmore was a chef in Boston where she was the only survivor of a brutal slaying at her restaurant. After therapy and hospitalization, Reece takes to the road in search of peace. Still suffering some of the aftereffects of her horrendous attack, she is hoping that Angel's Fist will provider her some relief from the panic attacks and fear that have taken over her life. She settles into the small town working as a cook in the local diner, but while hiking Reece sees a murder take place. She is certain of what she has seen, and the only one that will believe her is a popular author Brody. Brody believes Reece, but has also been informed of her past. He sees some of her unusual behavior, but sticks with his gut instinct that she is telling the truth. I will be the first to say I am not a big Nora Roberts fan but I love her "In Death" series as J.D. Robb. (Yeah, I know that makes me from a different planet.) However I found that "Angels Fall" is an enjoyable romance with a nice mystery embedded in it. It's certainly possible to guess the killer's identity, but you're better than I am if you're completely sure until near the end. ( )

This was a slow build about a young woman running from her traumatic past. She thinks she's finally found a place to safely land and deal with her PTSD, but shortly after her arrival at Angel's Fist, she witnesses murder. The only problem? No one believes her.

This was one of those books that was just okay for me. It wasn't bad, but it didn't ring any bells either. It's possible I need to switch genres for a bit. Brody was a big jerk in the beginning, but I did like how Reece was able to use his curt attitude to pull herself up by the bootstraps. The mystery aspect was decent, a little too drawn out in places, but decent. The last third of the book was probably the best part. If I were rating that alone, I'd give it at least 4 stars. ( )

While working as a chef in a Boston restaurant, Reece Gilmore becomes the only survivor of a shooting spree that killed all of her co-workers. Needing a change, Reece heads west and stops in Angel's Fist, Wyoming, nestled in the beautiful Grand Tetons. She takes a job as the cook in a local diner and begins to make tentative friendships with the townfolk, including handsome mystery writer, Brody.

On an afternoon hike Reece sees what she believes to be the murder of a young woman. When she reports what she saw most people tend to think it is her imagination bringing up the horrors of her past. The one person who does believe her is Brody and he will do anything to protect Reece (and get her into bed at every opportunity). The murderer realizes that Reece knows what happened and he uses her past fears to keep her unbalanced and to even start doubting herself.

I enjoyed the mystery and suspense of this book but 'boy howdy!' is there ever a lot of other 'activity' going on between the sheets. This was my first Nora Roberts book and I just have to ask: Are her characters always so lusty?

A favorite Nora Roberts it is lots of fun with a good mystery. ( )

Liked this book as read a while ago - Nora Roberts always pulls out a great story! Reece Gilmore has come a long way to see the stunning view below her. As the sole survivor of a brutal crime back East, she has been on the run, desperately fighting the nightmares and panic attacks that haunt her. Reece settles in Angel's Fist, Wyoming-temporarily, at least-and takes a job at a local diner. And now she's hiked this mountain all by herself. It was glorious, she thought, as she peered through her binoculars at the Snake River churning below. And no one in Angel's Fist seems to believe her. After all, she's a newcomer in town, with a reputation for being jumpy and jittery-maybe even a little fragile. Maybe it's time to run again, to move on . . .

Book description
The sole survivor of a brutal crime back East, Reece Gilmore settles in Angel's Fist, Wyoming—temporarily. at least—and takes a job at a local diner. One day, while hiking in the mountains, she peers through her binoculars and sees a couple arguing on the bank of the churning Snake River. And suddenly, the man is on top of the woman, his hands around her throat... By the time Reece reaches a gruff loner named Brody farther down the trail, the pair is gone. And when authorities comb the area where she saw the attack, they find no trace that anyone was even there. No one in Angel's Fist seems to believe Reece—except Brody, despite his seeming impatience and desire to keep her at arm's length. When a series of menacing events makes it clear that someone wants her out of the way, Reece must put her trust in Brody—and herself—to find out if there is a killer in Angel's Fist, before it's too late.
