COTT staff Gail Pallotta has a new release! "Mountain of Love and Danger" is a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk. How fun!
“Oh no, the message. Jack put his hand over his mouth. Was the entire visit to the restaurant a set-up? Had the burly guy talked about it in town so Jack would hear him? That was a bit far-fetched. Other people would’ve heard it too. But the place had been deserted. What a fool he’d been. He gazed at Dad’s swollen face. How could he mention a threat with him in that shape?”
Jack Greenthumb finds romance in Fairwilde Kingdom—a different day—a different girl. Then a cruel mystery begins. Dad’s beaten, the family farm destroyed and Jack’s true love, Gwendolyn Bante, kidnapped. Jack’s undercover operation reveals Gwenie’s a captive atop a mountain accessible only by helicopter. Reaching her is a dangerous expedition even for a champion rock climber like Jack. However, a Greenthumb Acres employee plants a miraculous seed from Heaven for the rescue. Suspense mounts as Jack scales the perilous cliff to face a brute and a treacherous descent in this retelling of the fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.
