Présentation de l'éditeur

When Jesse Morales, a recent college grad who aspires to be a mystery writer, volunteers to work on the summit of Mt. Washington for a week, he expects to work hard. What he doesn’t expect is to find a corpse in the fog, lying among the rocks, his head crushed. The dead man turns out to be a young tourist named Stuart Warren, who strayed from his friends while visiting the mountain.

Kyle Dubois, a widowed state police detective, is called to the scene in the middle of the night, along with his partner, Wesley Roberts. Kyle and Jesse are instantly drawn to one another, except Jesse’s fascination with murder mysteries makes it difficult for Kyle to take the young man seriously. But Jesse finds a way to make himself invaluable to the detective by checking into the hotel where the victim's friends and family are staying and infiltrating their circle. Soon, he is learning things that could very well solve the case—or get him killed.

I loved Jamie Fessenden's "Billy's Bones" and I was happy to see he had a new book coming out with a darker murder mystery theme. It didn't disappoint. There's more romance/sex in this book, good writing as always, and I enjoyed the mystery plotline and the New England setting. Recommended.

“If you dance with the devil then you haven't got a clue, you think you will change the devil, but the devil changes you.” ~ Unknown

Jesse Morales, of 'Murder on the Mountain', is having trouble meeting another man he feels comfortable with. It's not that he's too picky. He'd love to be in a relationship; but Jesse can't seem to find anyone whose interests are also focused on mysteries, police procedures, detective work, and other crime solving issues. Because he doesn't have much in common with his dates, his relationships peter out in a short time. Kyle Dubois comes into his life under most unusual circumstances. Jesse is attracted to him right away and insinuates himself into Kyle's investigation. He's delighted to meet someone he can talk shop with and not worry about him being bored to tears; that is, if Kyle can learn to take Jesse seriously.

Whether it comes from his desire to write mysteries, or that Jesse is merely curious, Jesse is a careful observer. He watches everybody, trying to figure them out. He makes several observations of the passengers disembarking the train which are interesting and quite important. When one of the guests goes missing, Jesse volunteers to look for him, but Jesse didn't expect to find him dead. This discovery does two things: it puts Jesse's sleuthing skills in gear and it introduces him to Kyle, the police officer assigned to the case. Although Jesse is shaken by finding a dead body, he's excited to be able to witness a real police murder investigation, which puts Kyle in a difficult situation. He likes Jesse and wants to accommodate his desire to participate, but knows it's against the rules. Jesse snoops as much as he dares without proper regard for his personal safety; far beyond what Kyle is comfortable with. Jesse comes up with some extremely pertinent clues which the police would never have been able to easily figure out without his help. Even with all of this going on, Jesse manages to find time to flirt and eventually become romantically involved with Kyle.

Kyle is usually a by-the-book kind of police officer, which is why his partner, Wesley, begins to question his sanity by letting Jesse be so involved in their investigation. When Kyle finally admits that he's bi-sexual, Wes is surprised but accepts it. What he does have a problem with, is Jesse being so young and in his opinion, too pushy, and moving too fast for his friend, Kyle, to whom a physical relationship with a man is all new. Wesley even warns Jesse not to break Kyle's heart, or else. Kyle is hesitant to move beyond flirting because he's never acted out his attraction to men and worries about his performance and his reaction to it. When Kyle finally comes to terms with it, he's a fast learner and Jesse is eager to share more with him. Jesse is frightening Kyle with his reckless attempts to figure out who the killer is, but he can't deny that Jesse's premises are valid, even though he's putting himself in a dangerous situation. When the drama is over and Jesse is out of danger, Kyle realizes how strongly he's become attracted to Jesse and can't imagine letting him go.

This is a fast-moving, mind-bending book with a good romance which brings together two men who, under normal circumstances, may never have met. Jamie's writing is strong and suspenseful and his characters even more so. I systematically doubted each suspect's innocence and contemplated their motives for wanting Stuart dead. Jamie did a good job of confusing me with the facts and had my mind spinning, trying to figure out who the murderer was and his or her motives for killing Stuart. If you like murder mysteries with wonderfully eccentric characters, a breathtaking setting, and suspense which keeps your interest piqued throughout the whole story, then you may enjoy this book as much as I did. Thanks, Jamie! It was a whirlwind, but intriguing journey.

Jesse Morales is finishing up a week long volunteering sting on the Summit when he stumbles upon a gruesome site. The good looking young man he saw coming of the lift with several friends just a few hours ago, is now lying dead at the bottom of a bank of rocks, head smashed in. Jesse is intrigued and very inquisitive when the Detectives show up, but he’s quickly dismissed by the lead Detective as just a ‘kid’.

Kyle Dubois is taken aback at Jesse’s beauty from the start, but the obviously younger man bothers him a little with his questions and curiosity about the case. When Jesse finds a way to insinuate himself into the investigation Kyle teeters back and forth between his anger at Jesse for putting himself in harm’s way, and his overwhelming attraction to him. As the two grow closer and Kyle opens up to the possibility of a relationship with Jesse, his protective instincts kick in, as well as his libido. It’s a dangerous game Jesse is playing, one that could cost him his life.

I do love a good, cozy murder mystery and that is exactly what Fessenden has offered up here. There is mystery, suspense and intrigue from the start. Literally every one that Stuart knew shows just cause to have killed him. While the Detective and would be mystery writer are trying to solve the case, they are fighting off an obvious mutual attraction. But the sexual tension only adds to the intrigue of the story. At times you are left to wonder if Kyle is really growing that attached to Jesse, or is it just his cop instincts kicking in and telling him to be so protective. Jesse is smart and fearless, but just a little bit reckless in exacting his means. It was interesting as well to see how romantically Jesse was the aggressor and the expert of sorts, while Kyle was more inexperienced in that area. But as far as overall maturity and common sense, Kyle took the lead, and it made for a well defined balance between them.

There were a couple times that words used were more liken to a YA novel, when subject matter and content were clearly adult. And I wanted just a little bit more at the end, perhaps it’s because the story was so engaging the ending snuck up on me. But overall that was a perfectly suspenseful novel with lots of passion and a little bit of murder to keep me entertained. If you like murder mysteries, suspense novels or just overall well thought out stories then I think you’ll love this one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 SUCH a good read! 4.25 stars 23 août 2014
Par Rosa, really - Publié sur Amazon.com

Oh, man, this is such a good read. It has a cop, a wannabe mystery writer and the promised murder. Show me a dead body and I'll show you -- well, I won't show you anything but I'll be happy.

Things to love about this book :

Kyle Dubois, police detective. When we first meet him he's hanging out at home watching "The Time Traveler's Wife." When his partner, Wesley, calls him he says he's watching "The Hangover." I love this guy. Later, when he and his partner are traveling up a mountain to the scene of the murder, Kyle takes out his Kindle and opens up an Agatha Christie short story. What would he rather be reading? A love story involving a "'straight' rancher widower falling for another man." I REALLY love this guy. Kyle's bisexual and a little nervous about sharing that with those around him, such as his police partner. However one person he didn't hide his bisexuality from was his wife (who died five years before the beginning of this story) -- she knew and thought it was sexy. It's so nice that Kyle has a loving, supportive relationship in his past.

Jesse Morales, recent college grad and wannabe mystery writer. He would probably resent me calling him a "wannabe" mystery writer. He hates that friends and sometimes strangers call him Jessica (as in Fletcher from "Murder, She Wrote") because he has an interest in murder mysteries. I love how Jesse works himself into the murder investigation and you know that's going to cause all sorts of yummy tension with Kyle. I love that about 5 minutes after Kyle thinks Jesse has a face like Ingrid Bergman, Jesse thinks Kyle has a smile like Humphrey Bogart.

The mystery. The mystery isn't super difficult to figure out, though the "why" may be. But for me that's not the point -- I don't read mystery novels for the "big reveal." I enjoy the journey, the characters, looking for clues and then forgetting to look for clues because I'm so involved in the story. Also enjoyable is how all the suspects are holed up in a fancy hotel which turns the murder mystery into a manor house mystery like you'd see in an Agatha Christie story.

Smexy times. Listen, Kyle's never slept with a man. This is a plot point we've seen a million times, however what makes it different is that Kyle doesn't turn into a porn star (to use Jesse's term) the minute he touches his first penis. It's hot but he's new at it and it shows. It makes him more vulnerable and the sex even sweeter because of it.

So as stated I really had a good time reading this novel. The writing flowed, there was tension caused by the mystery as well by Kyle and Jesse's relationship, but there was never any overwhelming angst. In other words there is no third act "big misunderstanding." Thank god. (Whoever told writers that it's a requirement is a freakin' LIAR, ok?) The only slight drawback is there are some minor plot threads left unanswered at the end. However, that leaves us wide open for a sequel. Maybe a trilogy? That would be awesome .

I'm a fan of Mr. Fessenden's books, so I was really curious what it would be like reading what he did with murder mystery story. I unfortunately found myself disappointed. What particularly surprised me was that the fluidity of his prose improved in leaps and bounds from good quality in "Billy's Bones" to perfection in "Screwups." But here, it was awkward and stilted.

Of the two main characters, Jesse Morales was my favorite. He was delightfully confident and charming and even if he didn't always make smart choices (like leaping into the middle of a murder investigation) his heart was always in the right place.

Detective Kyle Dubois was a character I should have fallen for or at least felt a connection to. Like me, he's bisexual. Like me, he lost his wife at a young age. The way he was written, though, left me feeling distant from him. For one, all the above info is frontloaded into the story the moment we meet him, which felt like reading a resume. And it wasn't necessary. All of that information was given to us again in the course of the story.

Which is another problem with the book. A lot of information got repeated, which sometimes is needed to keep facts straight, but in many cases here it felt redundant.

What may come as a surprising suggestion, given my complaints, is that I think this book needed to be longer. It had two very interesting and equally engaging stories—the mystery and the romance. But the romance wasn't given much chance to breathe. I would like to have seen more dialogue, more interactions with the main characters where some of the details we got told could have come out in conversations.

As for the mystery itself, I thought it was very well done. Plenty of twists and turns, some good red herrings and very interesting suspects. I was able to guess some of it, but I was wrong about "whodunit" (which was a relief.)

I kind of want a sequel for the character of Joel because I really liked him and I want to think he found someone to make him happy.

So, it's a good book, just not a great book like Mr. Fessenden's previous novels. If you are a fan of mysteries, then definitely pick this one up.
