This is the first suspense/mystery novel I read in my early teens and it’s an absolute thriller!(And I don’t say that from a thirteen year old’s point of view)
The journey is fluid! Each event glides past smoothly and tantamounts to a really good mystery! The novel has elements of romance, mystery, thrill, murder-making it a really engaging experience.
Here’s a sneak:
REECE GILMORE smoked through the tough knuckles of Angel’s Fist in an overheating Chevy Cavalier. She had two hundred forty-three dollars and change in her pocket, which might be enough to cure the Chevy, fuel it and herself. If luck was on her side, and the car wasn’t seriously ill, she’d have enough to pay for a room for the night.Then, even by the most optimistic calculations, she’d be broke.She took the plumes of steam puffing out of the hood as a sign it was time to stop traveling for a while and find a job.No worries, no problem, she told herself. The little Wyoming town huddled around the cold blue waters of a lake was as good as anywhere else. Maybe better. It had the openness she needed—all that sky with the snow-dipped peaks of the Tetons rising into it like sober, and somehow aloof, gods.
My preferences don’t take a liking to reading romance, but this bubble of love painted by Roberts is subtle, is calm, and it just glides through like it was meant to be. The spark between the lovers is unmissable!
Sly comments, under-appreciated symbolism, satisying and engaging and moreover, an overall terrific plot- this one definitely is worth the read!
