The Mountains Bow down is an intriguing murder mystery. FBI special agent Raleigh Harmon goes on a vacation cruise, but ends up working not only on a case, but with an arrogant colleague whom she starts to have feelings for…while still being engaged, and trying to keep her career choice a secret from her mentally fragile mother.
I really liked how the story kept me guessing right until the end. I also liked that it was a murder mystery rather then a mushy, gushy, romance novel. Guess I was ready for a change! (wry smile)
The life choices of some of the murder suspects makes me very thankful for my life – a life that is free from substance abuse and addiction. The only thing I can say I’m addicted to is work and chocolate! The way some people choose to live is very sad.
Raleigh’s character portrays devotion to both her parents. While her father was dead, she honored him in her care of her mother. I enjoyed seeing her commitment to her mother played out throughout the book.
The Mountains Bow Down is not a predictable novel. It is a great read that will keep you clueless as to who the murderer is and it gets a two thumbs up from me.
