I had not read any books by this author until I received this free from Booksneeze.com and I love her books. An awesome author and this book was just great.
The Clouds Roll Away is the 3rd book in the series which I didn't realize until I ordered it. When I ordered it I thought there were only 2 books in the series so I read her 2nd book The Rivers Run Dry. Awesome Book. So I just finished The Clouds roll away. I truly enjoyed the book. Was a bit confused at first how Raleigh, our main character, was back in Richmond but was patient and it was explained through out. Raleigh was transferred back to Richmond after being transferred to Seattle with the FBI for disciplinary reasons. She got back to Richmond and was put right back into a high profile case of a hate crime. This book goes deep into the crimes, into the historical roots, and gives a really great description of Richmond and the down south air. Not only is our main character dealing with professional issues: A boss who doesn't like her, co workers who don't trust her, and getting assignments that spell failure we see her personal life: still dealing with her dad's unsolved death, her mothers mental issues, and family dynamics that run deep. Her personal and professional life intersect. Sibella Giorello is a great author who really knows how to spin these stories. You don't expect what is coming next and it all ties in. These books give enough background that you can read #3 without reading the other 2. I am so glad I was given the opportunity to read this wonderful author.
