Angels Fall Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
The sole survivor of a brutal crime back East, Reece Gilmore settles in Angel’s Fall, 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 Fall 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 Fall, before it’s too late.

And the plot is really good - who hasn't imagined running away to a small town surrounded by grand natural beauty to start a simple new life. It's an escapist's dream!
The only gripe I have with this is the romantic lead, Brody, is a little too pushy - there are moments where Roberts goes too far in my opinion. Some women want a take charge guy but there's a line between "take-charge" and abusive - this character is borderline emotionally abusive in his responses to the female lead's panic attacks (well-earned given her backstory). She continually says, "Works for" her but it made me bristle a number of times. As its fiction and I was so enjoying other aspects of the story and characters, I let it go but it certainly stuck in my craw.
I wish more of Robert's characters were such modern women. That the lead didn't have a lot of biological family around her was refreshing too - many of Robert's books feature families that are large, ridiculously supportive, wealthy and there to catch every fall - it can get a bit much for those of us not so gifted.
THE STORY: Chance lands Reece Gilmore in Angel’s Fist, Wyoming when her car breaks down. She’s been wandering the country after a horrific event that sent her fleeing from Boston as she works to rebuild herself and her life. When she witnesses a murder, Reece struggles to get others to believe her when there is no evidence that it ever happened. The only man that Reese is sure is not the murderer is local writer Brody. The two get to know one another as Reece tries to find the truth about the murder.
OPINION: I really enjoyed this book. It is a nice combination between the romance and the suspense portion for me because the story is heavy on the romance.
Reece is a woman who is struggling to rebuild her life. The book really depicts her struggles and I especially like that through this crisis she still manages to build something for herself. Brody is a gruff hero, but I always like how he supports Reece despite all evidence to the contrary. Their relationship worked even apart from the suspense story.
There is little more I can say about the plot because it works better the less a reader knows. The solution isn’t particularly novel, but I did think that the book did a good job leaving many possibilities open until the end.
WORTH MENTIONING: There is a made for TV movie based on this book.
CONNECTED BOOKS: ANGELS FALL is a standalone book.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4.5 stars.
It's one of Robert's best. The colorful Rocky Mountain denizens will keep you wondering who to trust.
Reece Gilmore is driving and driving trying to escape the horror of a night that has left her with panic attacks, nightmares and a fear that chokes the breathe out of her until her car starts smoking in the calm Wyoming town of Angels Fist. Population 623. Before long, Reece takes a job in a local restaurant cooking and stays for a while until that itch comes around and she needs to get back on the road.
While Reece is out hiking she witness' a man & woman fighting. Out of fear she rushes back and stumbles into the towns brooding loner Brodie. She convinces him to return to the sight but there is nothing. No one believes her thinking she has an overactive imagination, before long strange things start happening to Reece that create even more paranoia.
Despite her desire to stay for a short while and leave she is developing some strong relationships with a few people in this sleepy little town. Joanie the owner of the little restaurant has taken her under her wing. Now, Brodie gets involved more that he is willing to admit.
The murderer is a surprise!

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.
