Nora Roberts 'Angels Fall'

Our Heroine has become a drifter after surviving a mass shooting at the restaurant she worked in. She ends up in Angels Fist when her car gives out and takes a job in a diner as a cook. On her day off she witnesses a women’s murder out on a remote trail in the mountains. The local hunky murder mystery writer happens to be ten minutes down the trail from her and is the first person she can reach for help. The police find no traces of anything where she says it happened so her psychological health comes into question.

Disclaimer: I read this book while sick in bed with food poisoning and to be truthful I don’t really like mystery novels. It was well written, decent characters and suspenseful. I skipped about 150 pages in the middle and just read the end. But if you like Nora Robert’s mysteries you might like this one a lot more than I did. What can I say.

Yikes! Food poisoning? I hope that wasn't a leftover from your Vegas trip. I told you never to eat tuna croissant sandwiches at a strip club, but would you listen? Nooooo.

I would love to be able to blame it on those damn sandwiches, but this was a book I read just before going to Vegas. I hate to even say it but methinks the culprit was a McDonald's salad. All the more reason to stick to double cheeseburgers to my mind.
