Mountain of Peril

When Molly Walker graduated from college, she was thrilled to be hired on as a ranger at Deep Creek Campground in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She arrived ready to begin her career and to enjoy all the aspects of her new job, but the one thing she hadn’t counted on was the local poachers and their illegal shenanigans. Molly and fellow ranger Jake Stuart try to put a stop to the escalating poaching problem while protecting the animals. In the meantime, Molly finds the handsome ranger, who is also a local, is a great partner to have on her side. She also finds she’s losing her heart to him when she’d planned to stay focused on her career. Can she give her heart and have a career? She and Jake find themselves in a battle against a group of men with a hidden agenda far more sinister than poaching. Can they be stopped before Molly’s life is snuffed out?

Mountain of Peril represents the first book in the Faith in the Parks series. The suspense aspects of this book kept me reading. I think one of my favorite interactions came as the beginning of the book when Molly tries to get directions from two men who are apparently hard of hearing. Perhaps because my own mother often has difficulty hearing, I could appreciate Molly’s difficulties. Or perhaps the setting of the Great Smoky Mountains captured my attention since I attended college in Asheville and I call North Carolina home. Or maybe its because I had a friend who thought about becoming a Park Ranger, I found myself unable to put this book down.

Having a husband who serves in the Army, I appreciated that J. Carol Nemeth served in the Army and calls North Carolina also grabbed my attention. Wildlife and more make appearances throughout the story. I also appreciated the dynamics of Molly being brand new to being a Park Ranger and the enthusiasm she brought came alive throughout the pages.

The dynamics between Molly and Jake drew me into the story. I found the story to be realistic and worth reading. So if you like books set in the mountains or ones that examine women struggling with having a career or having a relationship, check out this book for yourself. It definitely deserves your examination.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

About the Author

Carol Nemeth

A native North Carolinian, J. Carol Nemeth has always loved reading and enjoyed making up stories since junior high school, most based in the places she has lived or traveled to. She worked in the National Park Service as a Park Aid and served in the US Army where she was stationed in Italy, traveling to over thirteen countries while there. She met the love of her life, Mark Nemeth, also an Army veteran, while stationed in Italy. After they married, they lived in various locations, including North Yorkshire, England. They now live in West Virginia, where, in their spare time, Carol and Mark enjoy RVing, sightseeing and are active in their church. They have a son, Matt, who serves active duty Army, a daughter, Jennifer, her husband Flint, who serves active duty Air Force, and three grandchildren, Martin, Ava and Gage. Their four-footed kid, Holly, a black Lab, loves traveling in their RV, and when they pack up to go, she’s waiting inside for them to head out.

More from J. Carol

I worked for the National Park Service at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park many moons ago before I met my husband. The setting for Mountain of Peril, Faith in the Parks Book 1 is in that park. I met a lot of interesting people and there was never dull moment. Something was always happening. I was either helping trap wild boar, riding horse back for back country patrol, or doing search and rescue for missing persons. I used several of my own experiences in the story, tweaking them a bit here or there to fit with the flow of the narrative. This book is near and dear to my heart just as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is. Working there was the best job I ever had, other than writing of course, and I loved it. I hope my love of the park flows through my characters and spills out for readers to experience and enjoy.
