Today, I’m glad to introduce my sweet friend Amanda Holland, who has written our LAST Lazy Days of Summer book review (school’s back in session for many of us!). We “met” via the #momswrite hashtag on twitter, which I highly suggest you check out, if you’re a mom who writes! Amanda blogs at Grace in Our Moments, an absolutely lovely blog where she occasionally posts snippets from her own writing!
Amanda is reviewing The Clouds Roll Away by Sibella Giorello. Make no bones about it, I am a total, unabashed fan-girl of Sibella’s writing, so I couldn’t wait to hear the low-down on this third book in her Raleigh Harmon mystery series. Looks like I’ll be adding this to my collection, too! This series also boasts meaningful, flowing titles, and cover art I never fail to enjoy.
The Clouds Roll Away by Sibella Giorello
Book Review by Amanda Holland
|Amazon link: THE CLOUDS ROLL AWAY|
Returning to her hometown of Richmond, Virginia, isn’t going as well as FBI agent Raleigh Harmon hoped. She faces a boss still holding a grudge from Raleigh’s disciplinary transfer to Seattle and a hate crime case involving a rap star with a burning cross in his yard. Tensions are high in her personal life as well as her mom fights to keep her fragile hold on sanity. And Raleigh’s persistent ex-boyfriend keeps popping up everyone, leaving her feeling torn about their past—and their possible future.
AMANDA HOLLAND is a wife and working mom of two boys. She stays busy launching her new career and rediscovering life after graduating from college in May as a dental hygienist. She is also an aspiring writer, blogging at Grace In Our Moments (http://graceinourmoments.blogspot.com). She grew up in Arkansas, now lives in Texas, and dreams of getting to Tennessee one day. She is a Christian fiction addict who loves a good mystery, crime shows, cooking, Arkansas Razorback football, coffee, and cheesecake.
****I’m so excited to hear that Raleigh returns to Richmond in this mystery! I can’t wait to buy it. I don’t often find authors I recommend whole-heartedly, but Sibella is one of those authors! How about you? Which author do you love to recommend? And have you read any of Sibella’s novels?****
