(Romance Suspense) * * * * 1/2 stars
Reece Gilmore, a sole survivor of a brutal crime back East, was on a run. She moved and settle in Angel's Fist, Wyoming and took a job in a diner as a cook help. She thought she only going to be there temporary until she ready to move again. But she was taken how glorious and beautiful it is in Angel's Fist. The hike and the mountain drawn her in. And the small town people seem to be friendly even when they bet or gossip on strangers. And she love being in Angel's Fist.
But a crime she saw in the Snake River of the mountain on the opposite bank, frighten her. She witness a murder and nobody seem to believe her. Not even the cop. She is a stranger and new comer to Angel's Fist, people thought. But she can only relay help from Brody, a crime writer, and to believe her.
Brody, a crime writer, was on the other side of the mountain when Reece rush to his side to tell him that she witness a murder. But when she took him to the spot where she saw it, there was no sign of anyone there. He decided to help her talk to the cop. But when he found out about her past, he was more concern for her, when the cop wonder if she may have been emotionally hallucinated a murder. But both Reece and Brody was going to continue to investigated to see if there was really a murder there....before the killer get to Reece.
Reeces and Brody was thrown together to help each other emotionally and physically. The tense hot romance between them were simply wonderful. And the relationship were throughly developed. Their characters were deeply detailed and real. Even the secondary characters were very well developed.
While I like the book, it wasn't among one of my favorite of Nora. But the books were greatly well written and I love all the characters and how they interacted. I found out easily and quickly who the killer was, before it was revealed. But I admit, that at one point there was only one scene that show the soft side of the killer that make you feel sorry for him/her (didn't want to revealed it gender of the killer *grin*).
Nora have great way of writing detailed breath-taking scenery and very well written characters developed and description of the places. I felt am always at the scenes when she write the places. It make me want to be there :) There also humors in the story, and I love Nora's sense of humors in every of her books. Great story, great Characters, great book :)
I recommend you to read it :)
