MOUNTAIN OF PERIL
BY CAROL NEMETH
Welcome, Carol. What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book?
I hope they see my characters grow closer to Christ, either by coming to know Him through salvation or through strengthening their faith in Him. Just as we struggle in real life, my characters struggle at various levels in their walk with Christ.
What’s your favorite place you have visited?
I served in the U.S. Army and was blessed to have traveled to sixteen countries excluding the U.S. I suppose my favorite place would be Scotland. It’s a beautiful and wild countryside with wonderful and strong people and an interesting history. Not so nice weather, but hang around. It’ll change.
Why do you feel compelled to write—in your genre or at all?
When I was a young teen, my mother introduced me to Grace Livingston Hill, and I devoured her books, sometimes one a day. I loved the mystery of her books as well as the romance. So, mystery romance is my favorite genre whether it’s contemporary or historical. I have a hard time writing strictly romance and have to throw in some mystery.

Please tell us a little about your novel, 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 that the handsome ranger, who is also a local, is a great partner to have on her side. She also finds that 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?
