Nora Roberts – Verschlungene Wege Rezensionen und Bewertungen Video

[Thriller, Detective] James Patterson - Cross My Heart (2013) English, Mystery Thriller Audiobook Nora Roberts – Verschlungene Wege Wie zahle ich? Reece Gilmore landet eher unfreiwillig in dem kleinen Touristenort in Wyoming. Nejat Uygur fühlt sich sofort in diese amerikanische Kleinstadt gebeamt. Insgesamt aber empfehlenswert. Gemeinsam besiegen Brody und sie Sheriff Marsden, töten ihn aber nicht. Eigentlich möchte Reece Shades Of Blue Schauspieler ein normales Leben führen, aber normal ist für sie schon lange nichts mehr. Genres Liebesromane Romantische Spannung. Weitere Bücher der Autorin. Doch keiner glaubt ihr - bis auf den Schriftsteller Brody - der zu ihr steht, obwohl weder eine Leiche noch irgendwelche Spuren gefunden werden.

The asshole heroes of Time and Again can't hold a candle to smart, reclusive, caring Brody. Neither can the heroines match talented, strong, clever Reece.

And the chemistry between them - well. Not long ago, the fellows at Writing Excuses did an episode on romance with a guest author, and she told them that a good couple needed to complete each other.

Reece and Brody absolutely do. But the best part? They're not cheesy. Their relationship, their dialogue, everything feels completely natural.

I'll get back to Reece and Brody in a moment, because I want to talk about the plot. Damn , that was a fun mystery!

I admit, I guessed wrong - even though I should have known better. I guessed wrong and the real killer was, to quote Writing Excuses again, "surprising but inevitable".

The climax was tense and awesome, and the buildup was genuinely scary. I thought Reece was going crazy. I really did. And that freaked me out a bit, but mostly just added wonderful to the tension.

And speaking of wonderful I actually laughed, four or five times even! Lines like this: "Well, I'd have more zing with George Clooney and Harrison Ford in a threesome, but neither of us are going to get that wish.

I was worried, as a Westerner, that the characters in this book wouldn't sound like they belonged in Wyoming. Well, they absolutely do. My favorite was Joanie, the sharp-tongued entrepreneur who becomes Reece's boss, but all the rest of the characters were spot-on too.

The little details, even - at one point Roberts mentions a beer called Buttface Amber, and she didn't make that up.

You can really get it out here. It was a nice little touch. Okay, back to Reece and Brody. God, Brody. He couldn't have been any hotter unless he was a wizard.

No one knocks Numair off the Throne of Hotness; sorry. I mean, damn. First off, he's an author, which probably appeals to most female readers right away.

Second, while he at first seems cantankerous and possibly rude, he's a softie at heart - as he aptly demonstrated with his patience and his faith in Reece.

Third, and perhaps most important, he doesn't think with his libido. When Reece asks him to stop, he stops; and unlike other Roberts heroes, he doesn't think of her sexually from the moment they meet.

In fact, mostly when he thinks of Reece he thinks of her strength and her passion for her work. Watching him fall in love with her is just beautiful.

As for Reece herself, well I was worried she'd be a doormat, especially since she comes with some heavy emotional baggage.

My worries were wholly unfounded. Reece is a pistol! She is, as Brody works to convince her, astonishingly strong. She is also very responsible and mature.

Case in point: "What do you want, Reece? But since I can't, to deal with the consequences. She really needed Brody, but not in an annoying sappy way - she needed someone who would believe in her, not pity her, treat her like an ordinary person and not something fragile.

She also needed someone to respect her for her strength, and Brody was both. Through letting herself get close to him, she freed herself of a fear of losing someone she loved - and though I won't spoil, that fear was replaced by kickass determination.

Two final things: If you like Coldplay, put on a big playlist of their music to listen to while reading this. It's pretty much perfect, I think, and Yellow is totally Reece and Brody's song.

I wondered before I started this why it had recipes in the back, and now I know: it will make you hungry. Have a snack or a drink to hand.

I went through a bottle of water, half a bag of Goldfish, a chocolate bar, and dinner. Vinaya, recommend me more please?

View all 9 comments. Another fine read from this author. One day, while hiking in the mountains, she peers through her binoculars and sees a couple arguing And when authorities comb t Another fine read from this author.

And when authorities comb the area where she saw the attack, they find no trace that anyone was even there. There was a Lifetime movie made about the book.

This guy was cast as Brody, which I can totally appreciate. No way is she going to be my Reece. Spooky woman with those big, doe-in-the thicket eyes.

Pretty though, and she'd probably edge up to sexy with another ten pounds. Wouldn't you love to give away the extra 10 lbs you have to some needing individual!!

I was second guessing to the end. Did not have a clue who the bad guy was. NR is good at setting your mind in a certain direction Mists flowed along the ground, she noted, thin as tissue paper, and the lake still as glass That part of the country sounded beautiful.

The Tetons. Might get to visit there one fine day! But might just stick with her Suspense books. View all 50 comments.

Why do I like Angels Fall so much? Maybe because it is inspired by my two favourite psychological thrillers, Gaslight and Rear Window.

Reece Gilmore lands up in the little Wyoming town of Angels Fist while she's running away from the ghosts of her past. She finds a job as a short-orde It seems fitting to conclude Nothing But Nora Week with my absolute favourite Nora book of all time.

She finds a job as a short-order cook in a diner and slowly begins to settle down when she becomes a witness to a murder in a remote spot.

Reece's claim regarding the murder are dismissed by the town sheriff when he can find no evidence of such an attack taking place, and her credibility is further compromised by her troubled emotional state.

Her only firm ally is reclusive writer Brody, whom she teams up with to prove that she is not deranged, and that a murder really DID take place as claimed.

Reece is a great character, troubled, disturbed and clinging onto sanity by a thread. The plot is fast-paced and thrilling. The mind-games that the murderer plays with Reece are chilling and satisfyingly convoluted.

All-in-all, this is a book that is definitely worth reading, for all fans of romantic suspense. To be honest, I kind of skipped over the romance part quite a bit because I was so caught up in the story, but for the not-so-jaded, the romance between Brody and Reece is definitely sigh-inducing.

On a side note, I'm told the TV movie of this book is crappy, so you might want to avoid that Nothing But Nora Week, Book View all 3 comments.

Five full stars! Whether they are romances or mysteries; I just love the culinary theme guess this explains my fascination with the Food Network!

Put the three together, and Wow! Locklear starred i Five full stars! When I saw this volume available from my library on audio download, I went for it.

I am glad I did! Well worth the read — or listen! Almost forgot: Joyce Bean does an excellent job of narrating the audiobook! View all 7 comments.

But I changed my mind when I recently listened to the audiobook. The middle dragged too much. Maybe because I knew the ending and who the bad guy was, but I was tired of Reese being oblivious to all the things being done to her by the bad guy - trying to make her lose her mind.

Although she did some interesting things, too much time was spent with her being a helpless victim. The story is about a 3.

The story is about a talented woman chef who was the only survivor of a gunshot massacre. She moves away, is in the process of healing, and witnesses another murder.

The story also has an interesting romance developing between the chef and a writer who helps her. I enjoyed reading about these two characters.

I also enjoyed a supporting character, Joanie, owner of the diner. There were some good lines. I'm extracting parts of them here briefly, but they are better within the context of the story.

Page , after he said her eyes looked tired, she thought "He would always be brutally honest with her. Tough as it might be on the ego, it was better than platitudes and soft lies.

DATA: Narrative mode: 3rd person. Swearing language: strong but rarely used. Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: four.

Setting: current day Wyoming. Copyright: Genre: romantic mystery. From the perspective of a murder mystery, the plot was fairly gripping, but the killer was a bit obvious, and remained my most constant suspect throughout the book, even though I considered others, since it seemed too obvious.

I felt for heroine Reece, and all the harrowing terror she had been through in Boston, and now murder and malice here in Angels Fall, Wyoming, at the foot of the Grand Tetons.

My heart went out to her when the killer tried to drive her loco. Well done! Well, I liked the couple, Reece and Brody, and how they rolled.

No rainbows, hearts, or starry-eyed sparkles -- this romance is fairly unemotional -- but Brody the grouch grew on me.

I liked how he slowly began to reveal his soft spot for Reece. I liked him for believing in her when few others would, and for being so protective. Good secondary characters, especially Joanie, the restaurant owner.

Clever parallel between the heroine of the murder mystery Brody was writing and the actual heroine, Reece. Good descriptions of the Tetons.

I have been there, and Roberts' depictions brought all that grandeur, serenity, and majesty right back. It needed a longer ending.

I wanted to know how the townspeople reacted. Audio narration by Joyce Bean was fine. Quite good. Jul 05, Nicola O. I'm a bit undecided about a 3 vs.

In the end, I'm giving it 4 because I like NR. If you are picky about myster I'm a bit undecided about a 3 vs. If you are picky about mystery plotting, you may find it frustrating.

If you're in it for the characters, it's really good. I especially like the sort of grouchy Lou Grant voice of the hero. I really like Reece as someone recovering from a truly awful, traumatic experience.

She's been nomadic for a while and settles in a small Wyoming town when her car breaks down there. It isn't long before she finds herself integrating into the town, making friends, and setting down the beginnings of roots.

I'm less sanguine with the leading man, Brody. He's a bit caustic, in an alpha male, take-charge kind of way.

He fights falling for Reece a little too assiduously and seems randomly emotionally immature. It ended up working, I guess, and I buy their eventual HEA, but with the occasional needlessly exasperating moment.

The mystery of the novel was a bit awkward, too. I guessed the real culprit relatively early, though there's a real paucity of information through most of the book so it's never possible to be sure.

By about the three-quarters mark, I was ready for that part to be done--or at least show some progress. The nature of the mystery meant that once any details came out it wouldn't take long for the rest to fall into place, though, so Roberts really had no choice but to string it out a while.

As I said In the end, this was a good romance with a relationship that worked, if rocky in places. Not my favorite Nora Roberts, but certainly worth the time.

A note about steamy : On the light side for Roberts. One full-on explicit sex scene, on the short side, and a handful of playful interludes.

Turned out that, despite all the various Nora Roberts recommendations folks kindly gave me, the first non-J. Robb of hers that I read was Angels Fall , her latest paperback.

Turned out to be pretty good, overall. A talented young chef, after being the only survivor of a violent crime back East, travels across the country and winds up in a small town in the mountains--where she is the only witness to a murder.

Only did she really see what she thought she did? Most of the town is dubious, except Turned out that, despite all the various Nora Roberts recommendations folks kindly gave me, the first non-J.

Most of the town is dubious, except for the writer who's taken a shine to her and believes she's telling the truth.

I already know Roberts' writing from the In Death series, of course, but this novel felt a bit meatier than most of those books--possibly because there was only the one book to spend on developing these characters.

And I'll say this for ol' Nora: she actually surprised me for who turned out to be the murderer. I spent most of the book thinking it was somebody else entirely.

Also, thumbs up for the heroine and hero being refreshingly equal in their growing attraction, and the heroine being very honest about laying down her boundaries and when she's ready to cross them, and the hero respecting that quite a bit.

The sex scenes were also familiar in style from the J. Robbs, and I do like Nora's style--she peppers her novels with several very small sex scenes and yet manages to make the flavor of each distinctive.

Thinking about it, I can't come up with a single beef I have with this book. So sure, let's say four stars. Rating 2. Hmm the whole small town which should have come across as quaint and wholesome didn't I really don't understand why anyone would prefer to live there but Reece and Brody did clearly.

Auf einem Spaziergang in den Bergen beobachtet Reese zufällig einen Mord an einer Frau, doch der ortsansässige Sheriff Rick Marsden glaubt ihr nicht, da Beweise fehlen.

Eine Leiche ist am vermeintlichen Tatort nicht auffindbar, keiner der Ortsbewohner wird vermisst. Marsden recherchiert und bringt in Erfahrung, dass Reese nach dem Raubüberfall einige Zeit in einer psychiatrischen Anstalt verbracht hat.

Nicht nur er, sondern auch die übrigen Bewohner von Angels Fall tun die von Reese erzählten Beobachtungen und auch weitere eigenartige Vorkommnisse daraufhin als Hirngespinste einer psychisch labilen Frau ab.

Die junge Frau tut es und klagt sich selbst an, sie habe tatenlos zugeschaut, wie ihre beste Freundin erschossen worden sei. Sie selbst beginnt zu glauben, dass sie wieder den Verstand verliert.

Nur Brody glaubt ihr und bestärkt sie, sich nicht aufzugeben. Er vermutet, dass der Mörder ihr vorgaukeln möchte, dass sie verrückt sei, damit ihrer Aussage nicht geglaubt wird.

Eine Bekannte der Frau erzählt, dass sie seit einiger Zeit verschwunden sei. Daraufhin beginnt Reese langsam die Zusammenhänge zu begreifen: Nicht der von ihr verdächtigte Sohn ihrer Arbeitgeberin, sondern der Sheriff ist der Mörder — dieser hatte seine Frau als seinen Sonnenschein bezeichnet und sie trug ein Schmuckstück in Form einer Sonne.

Reese will zu Brody, ihm den Zusammenhang erklären — doch als sie zu dessen Haus kommt, hat der Sheriff diesen bewusstlos geschlagen und will beide töten.

Zuerst flieht Reese, besinnt sich dann jedoch eines Besseren, da sie diesmal nicht tatenlos bei einem Mord an einem geliebten Menschen zusehen will.

Rating 2. Hmm the whole small town which should have come across as quaint and wholesome didn't I really don't understand why anyone would prefer to live there but Reece and Brody did clearly.

The only person I liked was Reece. She was a strong lead who had been through so much and was still trying to get back and be as normal as she could.

Her love interest Brody was a mystery write Rating 2. Her love interest Brody was a mystery writer and was big on the whole tough love and didnt do sympathy or caring really.

I thought he was getting better at being the guy for Reece but unfortunately the whole debacle of not making her feel welcome in his cabin later on in their relationship made me feel annoyed and made him seem not very hero material which he wasn't at the start but was working towards it atleast.

The book dragged on in some places other than that I didn't really see the need for a secondary romance but it was also there. The who dun it part was ok but how the reveal was shown was predictable.

My favourite book still remains The Witness which also had a small town but very likeable characters and an amazing heroine also a very loving hero.

This one was great! I loved Reece and Brody, and Reece's situation and her behavior and reactions as she began to heal emotionally were believable and handled well.

The evolution of her character had me pulling so hard for her. All of the characters were enjoyable but Reece and Brody together ma 4. All of the characters were enjoyable but Reece and Brody together made the book for me, their chemistry was at once both comfortable and combustible.

Another awesome story from Nora Roberts! Another good read by Nora, if a shade too long. I don't tend to read her stand-alone books, and this was one of the few I have tried.

It was a good story, good plot and likeable characters. The support characters were also fun and realistic, giving the book a well rounded feel.

I liked the backstory, and the tension was kept up throughout, except towards the end when I just wanted to know who the baddie was!

It could have been edited a little more to make the pacing a little tighter is my only c Another good read by Nora, if a shade too long.

It could have been edited a little more to make the pacing a little tighter is my only criticism. I think I will try some more of the zillion stand-alone books Nora has-They are always a sure bet, and Nora is the very best at what she does, hands down.

I just love her I liked it. It wasn't bad, it wasn't her best, I just Annika was a lot of fun. But I lost interest in the plot along the way. I really liked all the elements of the story, especially the spectacular landscape.

Loved the interaction between the townspeople. Reece Gilmore was an interesting character, but became more interesting after witnessing the murder and having her sanity put into question by almost everyone, given her traumatic past.

Same goes for Brody. The story had everything, but at the same time seemed sparse. The last gotcha! My money was on Doctor Wallace. Lo proved to be too dumb to be a killer.

Needless to say, I was way off. I enjoyed the story, worth a few good hours of entertainment. The end, though, was cut too short.

A small note on translation. Oh, and just to clear the air ," she added as she rounded the counter for an apron, "your son's very charming, but I slept alone last night.

Sep 05, D. Giving this a 4 star cause I am rereading it. That's my cut off for 4 stars. I don't reread a lot of books. I just can't most times.

Even if the book was good or even okay. There has to be something more to make me want to crack it open again.

My brain works weird that way. I dunno. Sometimes I can remember scenes from books from years and years ago and rereading a book makes me unhappy.

Othertimes, I can't wait for enough time to pass for me to be able to open it back up. Angels Fall is a book Giving this a 4 star cause I am rereading it.

Angels Fall is a book I can't wait for enough time to pass. Seriously good book. Yeah, it's one of her best so far and I have probably read almost all her stuff from way back.

This one and Witness, I just can't get out of my head. I don't think it is one thing in the book- not the characters, not the setting, not the storyline.

It's a combo of all those things that turns a tale into a fab story. Some books touch others that I think are meh, I can take it or leave it. And I know the reverse is true for those same others for books that make my mind happy.

So whatever it is about this book One thing I gotta say. I'm usually not a big fan of broken heroines. Not broken like the female lead in this book.

And I'm not usually a fan of broody asshole heroes. At least not like this one. But, they worked in this story and they worked well.

Well enough that I overlooked my usual disdain for such obvious character flaws that normally become a plot device in and of themselves.

The mystery and suspense worked as well. I think Heather Locklear as Reece Gilmore was a bad casting, she is too old to play her part opposite Johnathon Schaech.

Reece Gilmore is the sole survivor of a massacre at a Boston restaurant where she worked as a chef. She hits the open road with no destination in mind, desperate for a fresh start.

When her car breaks down in a picturesque Wyoming town, Reece takes a job cooking at the local diner to earn enough to repair it and move on.

But as she gets to know the townspeople, mystery writer B I think Heather Locklear as Reece Gilmore was a bad casting, she is too old to play her part opposite Johnathon Schaech.

But as she gets to know the townspeople, mystery writer Brody in particular, she considers putting the past behind her and settling down.

But then, while out hiking, she witnesses a murder. Reece is traumatized again, and not just by the killing, but also because, when the police go to check out the crime scene, there's no evidence of a murder taking place.

The townspeople doubt her story due to her past, which leads everyone, including Reece, to question her sanity. I was on a pretty good roll there for a bit.

Then school ended and you'd think I would be reading up a storm. How embarrassing is that? I used to read in the morning during breakfast and at night before bed.

Now on the rare occasions I am sitting down wi Wow. Now on the rare occasions I am sitting down with tea, I am usually watching the puppy play in his pen.

But I finally finished Angels Fall which, like I said, is a re-read for me. This is the book that The Witness reminded me of, and it's so much better than The Witness that I felt compelled to revisit it.

Like The Witness, it's the story of a woman who has suffered severe emotional and psychological trauma making a life for herself and falling in love.

The protagonist is much more likable, and it's set in Wyoming, which is kind of cool to read about. The only thing I can't stand about this book is the protagonist suffers from what I guess is PTSD--she constantly has to check her locks, put barriers in front of her doors--but does she get a dog?

Nora Roberts is usually a slightly above middle of the road read for me. This one she hit out of the park. Reece is the only survivor of a shooting spree in Boston.

At her new place in Wyoming she witnesses a murder but because of her history of a breakdown after the first shooting no one believes her.

Characterization is wonderful. Reece grows over the course of the book. She starts out fragile and very damaged and grows stronger in what she is mentally able to accomplish and she doesn't give up Nora Roberts is usually a slightly above middle of the road read for me.

She starts out fragile and very damaged and grows stronger in what she is mentally able to accomplish and she doesn't give up on trying to find the murder that only she saw.

The hero, Brody, was not at all a cookie cutter hero. He is a mystery writer and is surly and sarcastic and doesn't fall all over her trying to baby her.

He does believe her though and learns to love her. There are several very interesting secondary characters and enough red herrings to keep me guessing as to the murderer for much longer than normal in this sort of book.

The mystery and romance were blended and balanced perfectly in this one. Not an edge of your seat thriller but a more character driven book. Really sterling writing and just perfect reading for a long Sunday afternoon.

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.

Reece 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 thought, as she peered through her binoculars at the Snake River churning below. Then Re 4 stars - 3.

Then Reece saw the man and woman on the opposite bank. And suddenly, the man was on top of the woman, 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 has vanished.

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.

I was able to read this novel cover to cover in one sitting. I will read more of Roberts novels. I had originally read this back in , but have to admit to having forgotten who the villain was in this when I started the re-read.

As for the protagonists, I absolutely loved Brody's surliness, his "no bullshit" attitude with a heart of gold.
