Kate Carpenter still grieves for her husband, a state trooper who was murdered two years ago. The fifth-grade teacher shuns male companionship, but when another state trooper, Michael Lehman, comes to her class to educate her students about the DARE program, Kate finds herself attracted to the handsome cop, even though she's convinced herself that she'll never fall for a cop again.
Michael, an ATF investigator poses as a trooper so he can determine what Kate knows about her husband Rob, his faked death, and his drug-running activities. He doesn't count on falling for the gorgeous strawberry blond, which complicates his investigation. Another complication is young Danny, a troubled teen who's been placed in foster care. Both Kate and Michael want to help Danny, but someone wants to see that they don't.
As Michael falls for Kate, he is conflicted about telling her how much he knows. If he reveals his mission, he will likely lose her and most certainly place her life jeopardy.
This is a short novel with romance overtones but with a suspenseful plot. A great story combined with strong characterization and perfect pacing make Murder on the Mountain a delightful read and Ms. James an author to watch. Michael is a dream hero, and Kate is his perfect match...if only he can make her see it. The secondary characters enhance this story, and the ending is strong and unexpected. Brava Ms. James. I loved this story.
