Murder on the Mountain

A couple of times I have mentioned the website Authors Promoting Authors, which is purely for the promotion of books which are not published by the larger publishers. Today I would like to promote one of their more eye-catching books, Murder on the Mountain, by Maddie James. Look at that glorious cover.

A Ladies of Legend Novel...In the two long years since her Tennessee state trooper husband's murder, Kate Carpenter thinks she's coped with his death, although everyone in Legend, Tennessee keeps telling her she hasn't. She can't see what the problem is, really.She has her parents, and her best friend Patti Jo, and her students.
What else could a twenty-nine year old woman need?
A man, Patti Jo keeps telling her.
A thought that Kara quickly puts aside.
All is fine until one hot August afternoon when Trooper Mike Lehman invades her classroom, and her life. When she can't get out of working with the trooper, assigned to teach drug abuse prevention classes, she bites the bullet and tells herself it's for the good of her students.
Inside, she's fighting demons she hasn't fought in a while.
Sent to Kate's classroom on a investigation, Mike uses his drug prevention training as his cover.
His mission, however, is to find out what Kate knows, if anything, about Rob Carpenter’s supposed death. Recent reports indicate he is alive and that he faked his death because of his involvement in a drug-running operation.
Mike's task is to expose Carpenter, and if she's involved, Kate.
And he’ll stop at nothing, to get the answers he wants.Buy Murder on the Mountain Visit Maddie James' Website

Hi Suzanne! Thanks so much for featuring my book, Murder on the Mountain. Google Alerts are wonderful!...and I came by to see. It is a fabulous cover, isn't it? This is the first time I've been by your blog and I plan to visit again. :)

Good to see you in here, Maddie. The strangest thing is that I have just started a new manuscript and the heroine's name is Maddy. And then I meet you. Life is full of coincidences.

The name is just coincidence but a good one, Nancy.
