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.

HASH(0x8cb6e690) étoiles sur 5 Good Mystery 7 octobre 2014
Par D. River - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.

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.

Jamie Fessenden is brilliant. There are no two ways to say it. He is a simply brilliant wordsmith, and every moment of toil and sacrifice he endures to bring such beauty into the world as his stories do ought always to be greeted with adulation. Murder on the Mountain is a riveting thrill ride that caught me up right from the first moment and kept me clinging tightly until the story came to its stunning conclusion. Bravo, Mr. Fessenden. You have done it again.

This is one of the best books I've read in a while. The romance is subtle and an organic part of the story, while the plot carries through the course of the book without relying on contrived drama.

**Audiobook Review**

This was suck a twisted and mind f*ck book. I loved it. Every time I thought I had it figured out what was going on or what had happened, I was surprised... and believed the twist.

I loved that while there was still the romance and erotic scenes, there was a heavy and well thought out murder mystery to go with it. Would I have liked more romance and naughty-ness? Absolutely, who wouldn't? But the title told me there was likely to be a nice thick plot and I was happy with the balance.

This was my first Jamie Fessenden book and I would happily read more of his books.

Cliff Bergen was the narrator and I felt like he gave the story a unique light with his voice.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Inked Rainbow Reads.

HASH(0x8c009660) 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 .
