About this title:

Synopsis: Anabel Lee, daughter of a rumrunner, is lonely. When law officer Corbin Appleby comes looking for a runaway, he stumbles across the rumrunners--and Anabel, who attracts him immediately. What's an honest lawman to do?

Review: Setting: Missouri, 1925

Sensuality: 6

At 21, Annabel Lee Donovan wants nothing more than to settle down and live a normal, quiet life, but her father's bootlegging business keeps them moving every few months. In preparation for one last big score, her father moves Annabel to a house high on a hill above the small town of Henderson, Missouri. But the new location proves to be a fatal mistake, for the people and events in Henderson will change their lives forever.

Unlike how it was with past residences, Annabel quickly finds herself making friends in Henderson, and when she meets Corbin Appleby, she's instantly drawn to him. She has no inkling that he's an ex-lawman working undercover for the local marshal, nor that fate has sent Corbin to save her. Dark forces are afoot and Annabel, Corbin, her father, and their friends are threatened by powerful bootleggers and clannish hill-folk neighbors. If they can't find a way to thwart the villain determined to harm Annabel, elude the big city gangsters sent to kill them, and unmask the local mobster hiding in the community, they're all liable to die.

Author Dorothy Garlock is a longtime resident of the American Midwest, and her descriptions and dialogue portraying 1920s Missouri ring with authenticity and authority. The exploration of the daily lives of middle-class, Midwestern Americans in the difficult days of Prohibition is an intriguing facet of this novel. A spinoff from the highly successful On the Edge of Town, High on a Hill is sure to satisfy established Garlock fans and gain the author many new readers. --Lois Faye Dyer
