Murder on the Mountain by Jamie Fessenden

 When Jesse Morales, a recent college grad who aspires to be a mystery writer, volunteers to work on the summit of Mt. Washington for a week, he expects to work hard. What he doesn’t expect is to find a corpse in the fog, lying among the rocks, his head crushed. The dead man turns out to be a young tourist named Stuart Warren, who strayed from his friends while visiting the mountain.

Kyle Dubois, a widowed state police detective, is called to the scene in the middle of the night, along with his partner, Wesley Roberts. Kyle and Jesse are instantly drawn to one another, except Jesse’s fascination with murder mysteries makes it difficult for Kyle to take the young man seriously. But Jesse finds a way to make himself invaluable to the detective by checking into the hotel where the victim's friends and family are staying and infiltrating their circle. Soon, he is learning things that could very well solve the case—or get him killed.

Wow this was a true m/m murder mystery! It was so fun to watch the very closeted detective, Kyle, fall for the sexy and sweet mystery writer, Jesse.  From the beginning of this book to the end you are thrown into an intrigue packed who-done-it mystery with just enough sexy romance thrown in to satisfy those who are looking for a romance.

I loved watching Jesse and Kyle fall for each other and solve the mystery at the same time.  I would love to read more about these two characters. Maybe see how they are able to balance Jesse’s obsession with murder mysteries and Kyle’s duty to keeping his cases confidential and Jesse out of trouble.  It was a very good mystery and while I had my suspicions I had to wait until the end to really know who the murderer was. Very well written and entertaining.
