REVIEW: The Mountain Top by Jennifer Mueller

Dear Mrs. Mueller,

Once again you deliver the goods. A hot story, well told in under 40 pages (on my IPAQ). I’m still trying to find out information about this battle which Kybele took part in which resulted in her capture and eventual sale to our hero, Orestes, in Greece. So far Thessius is only coming up as a person’s name and in information about the latest Star Wars movies. Somehow, that’s not what you seem to be writing about. And was Rome already fighting outside Italy in 483 BC? Oh well, if I had a dude like Orestes save me from slavery, I think I’d be jumping his ass and sticking around the family homestead for years too, waiting to make him mine. B for this one.


Another long time reader who read romance novels in her teens, then took a long break before started back again about 15 years ago. She enjoys historical romance/fiction best, likes contemporaries, action- adventure and mysteries, will read suspense if there's no TSTL characters and is currently reading very few paranormals.

    Had to look up her website to see where to buy this, and she’s got one set in ancient Egypt, too! I’ve got some fun reading ahead.

    She actually has two Egyptian books in a series. Even better for you! You do need to site hunt to make sure you get all of her books but she’s got an amazing range of eras and locals to choose from.

    As usual my computer doesn’t pull up the main page until its cached then i
    can get it for some reason and I can’t get to the comment page, this is
    the only email i have. first of all thanks for the nice review, second
    though I can’t find info on the battle in the Mountaintop either, I wrote
    the basis of this story more than a decade ago and I swear there is a book
    in the Vermillion community college library that tells of a battle called
    thessius fought in 483 or just before that. I can’t find it for the life
    of me now that i want to go back and look up more on it. I read it was
    between the Romans and the Phyrigians who had women warriors. why i can’t
    find it now i don’t know.
