Book Description

All Nora Abbot wants to do is make enough snow to save her ski resort from the drought that is ravishing Northern Arizona. But now her husband has been murdered; angry protestors have occupied her mountain; her overbearing mother has blown into town; and energy tycoon Barrett McCreary has launched what might just be a hostile takeover of the cash-strapped resort. To make matters worse, the local Hopi tribe claims making snow on the mountain will upset the balance of the earth, so Nora turns to the ruggedly handsome Cole Huntsman for help. The only trouble is that Huntsman seems to be playing from both sides of the deck. And when a fortune in uranium claims are at stake, double-dealing is a deadly strategy.

My Review

 First book in a new series by Shannon Baker.  Tainted Mountain is set in one of my favorite places, America's southwest.  Contemporary themes make this book interesting reading.  I found this book could have used a little more editing as it was not the smoothest read.  Good story overall.
