I hope you get a chance to travel over to her blog and check out what she is taking a peek into. I am giving a sneak peek into Fallen Mountains by Kimi Cunningham Grant. Norma, Lindsay and I read this one together. Christina @ Recipe and A Read hopefully will be back soon sistering up with us on our posts.

“An intense and engaging portrait of characters driven by—and bound by—the secrets of their pasts . . . an absorbing mystery as well as a gracefully layered story of death and loss in a small town.” —Allen Eskens, USA Today bestselling author of The Life We Bury and The Shadows We Hide
When Transom Shultz goes missing shortly after returning to his sleepy hometown of Fallen Mountains, Pennsylvania, his secrets are not the only ones that threaten to emerge. Red, the sheriff, is haunted by the possibility that a crime Transom was involved in seventeen years earlier—a crime Red secretly helped cover up—may somehow be linked to his disappearance. Possum, the victim of that crime, wants revenge. Laney will do anything to keep Transom quiet about the careless mistake they made that could jeopardize her budding relationship. And Chase, once a close friend, reels from Transom’s betrayal of buying his family’s farm under false pretenses and ruthlessly logging it and leasing the mineral rights to Marcellus shale frackers. As the search for Transom Shultz heats up and the inhabitants’ dark and tangled histories unfold, each one must decide whether to live under the brutal weight of the past or try to move beyond it.
Norma’s thoughts: Atmospheric, riveting and intensely entertaining!
I was immediately intrigued by the mystery of FALLEN MOUNTAINS and found the setting to be immensely appealing. I am a total sucker when it comes to dark and gritty tales set in a small rural town. They are by far one of my favorite types of reads and add in great writing, a suspenseful mystery full of secrets and a missing person – well then I am one happy and contented reader!
Brenda’s thoughts: Kimi Cunningham Grant does a great job creating a realistic down to earth feel through her descriptive atmospheric writing and we could feel the emotional connection the characters had to each other and their surroundings.
Lindsay’s thoughts: I loved everything about this novel! The characters, the writing, the storyline, the pacing, the flow, the suspense – simply perfect! Red reminded me of Walt from the TV show Longmire which I loved. I felt an immediate connection to this story from page one, instantly sympathizing with Red and his situation. The atmosphere was thick and wrapped me up completely throughout this rugged and unforgettable tale. I will be thinking of these characters long after I have finished writing this review. It was a book that I wished would have continued further, not because I wasn’t satisfied with the ending, but simply because I didn’t want to let the characters and storyline go.
Thank you so much to Amberjack Publishing and Kimi Cunningham Grant for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book
