Product description

Product Description

An adventure set in the Australian rainforest, where the race is on to discover a precious plant — and an even rarer kind of attraction.

Elly Cooper’s friend Jackson has gone missing — along with a journal that contains her dead father’s lifelong work and the recipe for a product he described as the ‘fountain of youth’, potentially worth millions.

The catch is that the main ingredient is a rare plant found only in the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland. And only her father knew where to find it.

Elly enlists the aid of ex-policeman Mitchell Beaumont to help her find Jackson, the journal and the plant. But someone else is on the trail of the precious plant, and it seems they’ll stop at nothing — even murder — to get what they want.

It’s a race against time in the tropical heat as Elly and Mitchell battle the perils of the rainforest — and the feelings growing between them.



Praise for BLACK MOUNTAIN:

' A fascinating and exciting mystery romance. The plot was unique and captivating with strong characters and no plot holes. I loved the book and would recommend it to everyone. The story was a one sit read for me. A really good light read mystery and romance.' — Rubina Bashir (Netgalley)

Congratulations., Kate I have just completed my reading of Black Mountain that I purchased through Amazon. I really enjoyed the story with all of its Australiana, intrigue and danger as well as the developing relationships and of course the twist.. I certainly didn't see that coming. I truly consider that this is the best of your writings thus far and look forward to future publications from you.

Black Mountain is an exciting and complex adventure focusing on a race between greed and love. Elly desperately wants to fulfill her father's dream of developing an amazing herbal based anti-aging cream to add to her mother's line of herbal skin care. She had worked with him until his death but set aside the research in her mourning until someone stole the book in which he kept his notes. With the help of an old family friend she must find the key component, a rare plant, before the thieves find it.

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read 5 July 2016
By Books Of All Kinds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Elly Cooper hasn't had much luck in the romance department but she hopes that a fledgling friendship with an airline pilot, Jackson, will possibly change that. But when Jackson disappears, and she discovers that he is not who he says he is, Elly and her friends are completely confused as to why he tried to fool her. It is not long before Elly realises that her deceased father's journal, containing his life's work, is also missing. Elly decides to head back to her family home where they grow plants and herbs for therapeutic and cosmetic products - if she can figure out the whereabouts of the secret plant that her father had been working with, maybe she will find out who is behind the robbery and what they want. This will lead her on a dangerous journey through the Australian rainforest with betrayals and surprising discoveries along the way. But this is not something she can do alone - and Mitch Beaumont is the perfect man for the job.
Mitch Beaumont's life as a police officer changed when he was injured. Hoping to set up a security firm with a colleague, he has no problem helping out a friend when she needs him. Tracking down this Jackson guy, and finding this unknown plant is not going to be easy, and add in his attraction for Elly, and things might just get complicated. And when danger comes very close who knows how it all may end.

BLACK MOUNTAIN by Kate Loveday is an easy read and I enjoyed it overall. I like the plot as it is different, and the scenery is described in stunning detail. Elly and Mitch are interesting characters, but there were times when Elly irritated me, especially in relation to her dealings with Jackson later on in the story. On the whole, I found BLACK MOUNTAIN by Kate Loveday to be a short, light read.
