From the Review Pile

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by 
Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review, but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

Over the Mountain by Tony Talbot

In the sleepy and isolated English village of Inklesham lives 15-year-old Jenna Adams. Life is quiet for Jenna: She fills her diary and her days with midnight rainstorms, working at the local pizza shop and thoughts about her school friends - and enemies.
The arrival of the new boy in the village throws Jenna's life into a spin. Scott Thomas is like no one she's ever met, a strange and somehow haunted young boy.
For a while, love for the two of them is simple and easy. Then things to start going wrong. Why does Scott lie to Jenna about where he's been and who he's been with? What's the secret that he and the brother of Jenna's best friend seem determined to keep?
A tragic event threatens to overwhelm Jenna, and her life starts to spiral out of control, gradually slipping through her fingers and away...

Recent widow and new mom, Kate Huntington, never would have made it through the last year without the support of her closest friends, Rob and Liz Franklin. So when Rob’s elderly aunt has a problem, at a most inopportune time, Kate is certainly willing to help out. 

No good deed goes unpunished. Her altruistic act lands her in the middle of a police investigation when Aunt Betty’s “problem” turns up dead.

Kate’s second adventure in this series has a bit of a cozy mystery flavor as she and her friends attempt to clear Rob’s octogenarian aunt of suspicion. Wading through a brimming pool of suspects, some of whom have secrets they would prefer stay buried, is hard enough, but Kate is distracted by a growing attraction to another party in the investigation.

She knows it’s too soon to date–she’s still grieving for her beloved Eddie–but the sexual pull is hard to resist. To further complicate matters, Rob is acting strangely. Is it just stress overload, or could he be jealous? Meanwhile, the residents of The Villages retirement community are continuing to die off, and not from natural causes. Soon the question becomes not just whether they will find the killer, but at what cost.
