LitFuse Blog Tour: The Clouds Roll Away by Sibella Giorello

by | Uncategorized

The Clouds Roll Away: 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.

Lisa’s Review:  I received a free copy of the book in exchange for participating in the LitFuse blog tour. I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but after reading The Clouds Roll Away, I’m definitely going back to read the others. I planned to read a chapter or two while soaking in the tub, but ended up reading the entire novel! My writer’s heart was captured from the first paragraph and held captive until the last paragraph. Sibella’s beautiful word painting pulled me into the setting, but the depth of her characters kept me reading to the last page. I thought I had the villain figured out, but the unique plot twists kept me guessing! If you like romantic suspense with beautiful writing and well-defined characters, then be sure to read The Clouds Roll Away.
