The Clouds Roll Away Blog tour

Thank you LitFuse for providing me a copy of this book to review.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon returns home for Christmas but discovers Richmond, Virginia running low on goodness and light.

Although her exemplary service in Seattle lifted her disciplinary transfer, Raleigh lands a hometown civil rights case riddled with problems that could get her sent away again. When she helps out a fellow cop, her life goes on the line, forcing her undercover in a sting operation. As Raleigh realizes the lines are crossing and double-crossing, her domestic life starts to unravel. Her mother's mental health cracks like ice, her closest friend grows cold, and her old boyfriend DeMott comes a-calling, hoping for more than chestnuts by an open fire.

While the city glows with Christmas lights and carols, Raleigh is forced to rely on her sharpest skills to stay alive, hoping for that one clear moment when everything makes sense and the clouds roll away.

MY REVIEW:   This is the first novel I have read that was written by Sibella Giorello.  I must admit when I first began this book, it was a bit slow, however, I continued to read and it progressively got a lot better and very interesting.  I don't want to give much away, but this book is definitely a thriller-mystery.  I would easily compare it to something you would see on CSI.  I loved unsolved mysteries and this one is a definite must read.  I fully enjoyed it.

You know, Leticia, someone should hire you to review books professionally.

I am not into novels like you are, but I can still appreciate your talent in reviewing them for prospective readers.
