No Good Deed Goes Unpunished…

In the small town of Clarkesville, in the heart of the Oregon Cascade Mountains, a humble forester stumbles into the complex world of crooked cops and power-hungry politicians…all because he rescues a stray, injured dog on the highway.

Lehigh Carter never really meant to adopt the dog. But his ex-fiancée, Stacy McBride, convinces him to do it, with a promise to help. Their rekindled romance angers her father, state Senator George McBride, who sees her backwoods suitor as a blemish on his carefully created political image. It also sets off a chain of events that entangle Lehigh in a life-or-death conflict with the senator’s hardnosed campaign treasurer, Paul van Paten, who had his own plans for Stacy’s future.

Selected as one of Pople’s Book Reviews Best Reads for Fall 2017, The Mountain Man’s Dog is a briskly told crime thriller loaded with equal parts suspense, romance, and light-hearted humor, pitting honor and loyalty against ruthless ambition and runaway greed in a town too small for anyone to get away with anything.

The Mountain Man Mysteries combine the adventure and grit of a thriller, the suspense of a mystery, and the humor of a romantic dog cozy to delight and enchant all readers who enjoy a well-written story.

“The Mountain Man’s Dog kept me on the edge of my seat as I was plunged into the story. But don’t worry, I didn’t drown as Gary Corbin paced the excitement and gave the reader room to breathe. I never wanted to stop turning the pages! If you love thrillers and romance and dogs, you’ll love this book!
– A. Carlie, Portland Author
Definitely a book worth reading. I felt that the author kept my interest and since I love animals and have rescued my share since I live on a little backyard farm it was a hit. Lehigh Carter ends up adopted a dog to please his ex-girlfriend. The whole situation brings the two back into rekindling old feelings but not everyone is happy about it. Stacey is the daughter of a Senator and things start to get a little bit out of hand as ambition drives Lehigh into a life or death situation. A great story and I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
