book review: "the mountains bow down" by sibella giorello

Raleigh Harmon needs a vacation. She goes on a cruise to Alaska with her mother, aunt and her aunt’s friend, needing some time away from her fiancé and the life they’ll soon share. It’s not long before her vacation takes a deadly turn when a body is found hanging on the side of the ship. Raleigh quickly determines the woman was murdered – not the suicide everyone wants to believe. She has until the cruise ends to find out who’s responsible. While solving this case, she must also figure out her feelings for her fiancé. She loves DeMott but does he really understand her and her job? Though DeMott may not understand her, Jack Stephanson does. As a fellow agent, Jack is called on the case to help Raleigh. She ignores his flirting but can’t deny the affect he has on her. Everyone is a suspect in this case as time begins to run out.

This is the third book in the Raleigh Harmon series. I read the second book, The Clouds Roll Away, but that’s not necessary to get into this story. There are a few references to the second book but again, it doesn’t hinder the reader. I enjoyed the book. I’ll admit I didn’t have the mystery figured out. I thought all the references to the rocks, minerals etc. was a little hard for me to stay with just because that’s not an interest of mine but the background was important in helping Raleigh with her case. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series, set to release next year.

I received a copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity and all opinions are my own.
