DEEP IN TENNESSEE HILL COUNTRY Carol Preflatish takes her readers into the backcountry in MOUNTAIN OF DECPTION. The setting is a small town in the mountains of Tennessee. Housing consists of cabins and the town of little beyond a rustic restaurant/bar, post office, grocery stores that scalp tourists with high prices and the one locals patronize that doesn’t. Oddly enough, there is a fitness center. The main tourist attraction appears to be hunting – a lot of it illegal and it is this that the hero is in the middle of. But the emphasis here is on the heroine who has taken a year’s long sabbatical from her college teaching position to move from Illinois to this Tennessee backwash community to write a novel. Instead, she seems to have been dropped down in the middle of one with a mental soundtrack reminiscent of “Dueling Banjos.” It would have been nice if the heroine had been a bit more involved in the mystery element, but beyond being targeted as the hero’s weakness, she isn’t. Definitely a tale for those who are interested in hunting and living in a small mountainous community.
