Publisher Comments:

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. She 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 thinks, as she peers through her binoculars at the Snake River churning below.

And then she sees the man and woman on the opposite bank. Arguing. Fighting. And suddenly, he's on top of her, his hands around her throat....

Enjoying a moment of solitude a bit farther down the trail is a gruff loner named Brody. But by the time Reece reaches him and brings him to the scene, the pair is gone. And when authorities comb the area where she saw the attack, they find nothing. No signs of struggle. No freshly turned earth. Not even a tire track.

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.

Reece Gilmore knows there's a killer in Angel's Fist, even if Brody, despite his seeming impatience and desire to keep her at arm's length, is the only one willing to believe her. 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.

Review:

"Roberts's latest novel of romantic suspense is a cunningly calibrated portrait of a young chef's recovery from violent trauma. While driving in the Grand Tetons, displaced Bostonian Reece Gilmore stops in the small town of Angel's Fist, near Jackson Hole, Wyo., and considers the 'Cook Wanted' sign in Joanie's, a local diner. Still rattled by a shooting spree at her Boston restaurant that left her wounded and the only survivor among 12 co-workers, Reece is easily spooked, as noted by her plainspoken new boss, Joanie, and the locals who frequent the restaurant. Among them is a wary, unattached mystery novelist, Brody. Indeed, when Reece claims to have witnessed a murder while hiking along Snake River, few except Brody are inclined to believe the skittish new resident: Sheriff Rick Mardson hasn't found any clear evidence of a woman struck down near the river; Doc Wallace is suspicious of Reece's fragile mental state; and Joanie isn't about to cut Reece any slack while running a busy kitchen. Roberts cleverly casts suspicions on the locals while developing the romance between the two feisty protagonists. A slow-burn start combusts in a satisfying denouement; Roberts's legions of fans will be enthralled. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

I just got finished this morning with ANGELS FALL. I must say this was the first book I've ever read by Nora Roberts. I read two other titles and discriptions of the plot on two other books but this one took me back.
I was just taken too it once I read the beginning of the first chapter.
I never wanted to put this book down, the characters are so life like, and the discription of the Tetons is just magical. The author really knows how to get you drawn in. This book will make you laugh, cry, smile, and also want to just grab some of the characters by their shirts and say "Are you listening"?
I will most definatly be purchasing another book by Nora Roberts in the near future. I am so pleased to have gotten to read this book.
I haven't been this excited about reading a book since, high school! All I have to say about this book is that your in for a real treat hanging on the edge of your seat!
