Out On A Limb: A Smoky Mountain Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A USA Today best seller! Jourdan is an Audible, 5-time Wall Street Journal, and USA Today best selling author. Out on a Limb reached #8 in the USA as well as #1 Mystery and #1 Cozy Mystery. 

Reviewers describe this scientific medical mystery as "CSI Meets Animal Planet."

In Out on a Limb Phoebe McFarland has just moved back to her hometown of White Oak, Tennessee, a sleepy rural community nestled in the mist-shrouded ridges and isolated hollows of the Smoky Mountains.

Now she spends her days working as a rural home health care nurse, making calls on a cantankerous roster of housebound characters she's determined to take care of whether they cooperate or not.
She applies this same optimism to her love life, despite the fact that she's been dating for 38 years without locating any husband material. 

When she runs into her childhood sweetheart, Henry Matthews, a wildlife ranger for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it looks like she might've found her man.

But Phoebe and Henry's chance for romance has to be put on hold while they undertake a desperate search for a young woman who mysteriously vanished from the park during a gathering of world famous biologists and botanists, including a charismatic Frog Whisperer.

Out on a Limb

I bought this book this morning and finished it this afternoon. I couldn't stop reading. I love the location..Smoky Mountains National Park and East TN. The characters are well developed and likable. We have been to the Smokies many times. I loved the descriptions of the area, all familiar to me. The author was writing just for me. The scenes that involve animal behavior are accurate, especially the black bears. The story line kept me interested as the plot developed. Lots of surprises and humor.
Searching for my next Carolyn Jourdan novel.

A really fun read...

It's well researched, by a knowledgeable writer, and the plot is somewhat believable and entirely enjoyable. A writer I'll try again and again.

Out On A Limb
