A MOUNTAIN TOO STEEP by Robin Patchen, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"Camilla Wright was acquainted with late-night phone calls. The first had ripped her world apart. The second might well destroy her."

"Some people look at the mountain and think, I cannot do it . . . .They sit at the bottom and ask God to change the mountain. He is a God who moves mountains, but more often, I believe that He wants us to climb."

"She didn't want goat's feet. She didn't want to scale mountains. She wanted a lush valley with tall grass and a pretty, meandering stream . . . Was that too much to ask?"

An horrific car accident has just landed Camilla Wright's teen-age son and his cousin in the hospital with serious injuries, in fact her son Jeremy is currently fighting for his life. Booking the quickest flight available from Oklahoma to Utah where the boys had been skiing, Camilla doesn't think that she can possibly survive another loss. The murder of her husband four years prior had left a hole in her heart that on some days seemed to grow larger, deeper and more painful.

As the rather strange details of the accident become clearer, Camilla's angst over her family's safety expands; was it possible that the same men responsible for Daniel's death have come back to complete some unfinished business? The F. B. I. certainly seem to think so.
Rare and riveting . . . what a fabulous story! I was glued to the page (Gorilla Glue glued!!!) from start to finish with its rapid pace, emotional spins, (think white-water rafting!), how-did-you-survive- characters, and wait-a-minute plot twists . . . topping off with a very clever segue into a brand new series!

BackCover Blurb:
A car accident that might not be an accident at all. A murderer bent on revenge. And a woman desperate to keep her family together.

She’s already lost her soul mate. She’ll do anything to protect her children.

For the sake of her kids, Camilla Wright managed to survive after her husband's murder. When she’s awakened in the night with the news that her teenage son and nephew have been in a horrific car accident, she rushes to the hospital in a haze of shock and panic.

The boys were supposed to be skiing in the mountains east of Salt Lake City. What were they doing so far west? More alarming, the wreck might not have been an accident at all.

While Jeremy fights for his life, Camilla is running out of time to discover who lured her son and her nephew into the desert. With each new clue, the terrifying truth becomes clearer.

Her husband’s killers are closing in…
