Angels Fall | [Nora Roberts]

Angels Fall

Enjoying the view from the mountain she has just climbed, Reece Gilmore sees a woman being attacked. But when authorities comb the area, they find nothing - no signs of struggle. No freshly turned earth. Not even a tire track. No one in town seems to believe Reece, except Brody, a gruff loner.

Publisher's Summary

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.

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. 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.

No one in Angel's Fist seems to believe Reece. 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. But Reece 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.

    "Great Nora Roberts book"
    Would you listen to Angels Fall again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen to this book again. There was more character development in this book than in the majority of romances.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of, Reece


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The "voices" used the narrator were often difficult to distinguish--- one gravelly voice for all men, some women.

    I have a busy career, travel a lot and don't have much time to read, so I listen to Audio books. I love reading!

    "Easy listening!"

    I look forward to Nora Robert's strong female characters and the men they fall in love with. A little predictable, but good easy listening. Angel's Fall is another good recipe with a good story line and that good bit of a twist and excitement to keep you on the edge of your seat.
    Another Nora Robert's winner with a good narrator in Joyce Bean bringing the characters to life.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Angels Fail"

    Awful.

    Whiny wounded heroine witnesses event. Then several (audiobook) hours of stalkerish/gaslighting pranks alternating with "OMG! Am I crazy! I'm not crazy! I swear!" Then big confrontation with baddie who was obvious about halfway through the book, and *wham* book is over. No reactions/responses from anyone other than the hero and heroine.

    Seriously. Bad.

    "Murder and Malice in the Grand Tetons"

    Good narration by Joyce Bean. No complaints. Her performance was excellent. This book was also made into a LIFETIME movie starring Heather Locklear, but I never saw it.

    As for the story, it's a good thriller, but a fairly weak mystery. I guessed who murdered the woman immediately, but was never sure till nearly the end.

    The thriller aspects were stronger. I really felt for the heroine as the killer tried to drive her into la-la-loco land. He was so malicious. Shudder.

    As for romance, this one is laid back, matter-of-fact, and seemingly emotionless, compared to some love stories. Nonetheless, I quite liked Brody's gradual transformation from grouchy, hard-edged journalist and mystery writer to protective, devoted -- but still slightly sarcastic -- lover.

    I liked seeing the heroine come into her own, and fight her way back to serenity.

    Good pacing. Good dialogue. Good secondary characters, especially Joanie. Good entertainment.

    I wish Roberts would leave out the religious profanity. Bugs me.

    "Excellent narration, story gets a little lost"

    I enjoyed listening to Joyce Bean narrate so much so that I looked up other titles she has performed. Angels Fall is a good story, but it gets a little lost in the lengthy descriptions of all the main character's issues (paranoia, OCD etc.). The ending is not unexpected, but it is confusing. I'm still not quite sure how it all panned out. Usually Nora Roberts is much more on point with descriptive storylines, but I feel this story fell a little short.

    "Nora at her finest"
    Would you listen to Angels Fall again? Why?

    Probably. It was a terrific book to read, and it was an equally enjoyable listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Angels Fall?

    I enjoyed her tantrum through town when she was finally fed up with everything, and the fact that it was the lack of fresh dill that set her off. Reece is severely traumatized by a past event, and she stayed that way throughout the book. I like that there was no miraculous turnabout in her personality just because she met and fell for Brody. I got a kick out of her neurotic behavior and the way she and Brody dealt with it.


    Have you listened to any of Joyce Bean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Joyce Bean's narration is hit or miss for me, but this one was a hit. I had no trouble discerning who was talking (never really an issue with her), and none of the main characters sounded too hokey, although at first I was concerned about Lo. It's that which makes her so iffy for me. There was a Tami Hoag book that I ended up returning because the hero's voice was just unbearable. Overall, I'm willing to take a chance on her - she's more hit than miss.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, a couple of moments with Debbie Marsden moved me to want to smack her, but Reece's reaction to her was just priceless.
