Review

In 1925 bootlegger Murphy Donovan moves his operation to Henderson, Missouri. Accompanying him on his latest midnight move is his daughter Annabel Lee and his two employees Spooner and Boone. Though she knows better, Annabel hopes this is their last move as she would like to settle down anywhere.

Annabel helps ailing youngster Jack Jones, who was hoping to become a baseball star, with a hot meal and a bed. Through Jack and Boone she meets former law enforcement official Corbin Appleby, who has a message for Jack from his older sister. As Corbin and Annabel fall in love, he realizes that her father runs an illegal operation in Missouri and Illinois. What will happen to his chance for a loving relationship with Annabel if he turns in his future father-in-law. Adding to his ethical dilemma, he owes Boone for saving his life?

Award winning Dorothy Garlock shows why she is so highly regarded by readers and reviewers with her latest tale, HIGH ON A HILL. The story line is imbued with 1920s atmosphere that historical readers will enjoy very much. The lead couple is a delightful pair who provides the romantic elements. The support cast provides the historical feel that makes the plot a cut above the norm. Fans of 1920s novels will enjoy Ms. Garlock who will gain many new accolades.
