Book Description

April 21 2012 A Klondike Mystery (Book 3)

Book Three of the Klondike Mystery Series by Vicki Delany!

In the summer of 1897, Fiona MacGillivray and her eleven year-old son, Angus, arrive in Vancouver in time to hear the news gold discovered in the Klondike! Fiona immediately sets off for Skagway, Alaska, intent on opening a theatre. After one encounter with infamous gangster Soapy Smith and his henchman Paul Sheridan, she decides to pursue her ambitions on the other side of the border in Dawson City. As a dying man breathes his last, he passes on to Sheridan a map pointing due north to the fabled Gold Mountain, where hills of gold keep the heat from hot springs contained in a valley as warm as California.

Sheridan is determined to become the king of Gold Mountain and to marry Fiona and make her his queen. Fiona, of course, wants no part of these mad plans. When Sheridan refuses to take no for an answer, Fiona must rely on Corporal Sterling of the North-West Mounted Police, young Angus, and a headstrong assortment of townsfolk to help thwart his scheme.

Product Description

Review

This smart and funny sequel to Gold Fever takes us back to the bad old days of the Klondike Gold Rush. Delany has a dab hand with all the lore about life in the 19th century Klondike. (Globe and Mail 2012-04-07)

The bizarre closing twist will leave readers prospecting for a sequel.

(Publishers Weekly 2012-02-01)

Delany is a master at her craft, able to use language and historical events to build a story that rivets the reader until the last page.

(Mystery Scene magazine 2012-04-01)

There are many reasons to read Gold Mountain. First, it's a delight. Second, as mentioned, Fiona is a heroine who's quite unique—feisty, with a checkered past, clever, sarcastic, quit-witted, headstrong and quite fetching. Third, the setting of the Klondike gold rush is so vividly portrayed, from the mud-drenched roads to those desperately seeking their fortunes. Consider it a mini history lesson. (Mystery Maven Canada)

Once again, Delany has managed to bring the wild years of the Klondike Gold Rush to life. It was a time and place filled with unusual characters, mad schemes, violence and greed. All of that comes to light in Delany's Klondike mysteries. (lesasbookcritiques.ca)

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Gold! May 31 2012
Format:Paperback
Plucky heroines, unsavory characters, an Alaskan setting and the irresistible dream of striking it rich make Gold Mountain a great, fun read. think McCabe and Mrs Miller or Deadwood, but with more laughs! Will go back and look for other books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for a lazy summer weekend May 28 2012
Format:Paperback
I believe this is the fourth novel in Delany's excellent series on the Klondike gold rush. It's a nice, light read, perfect for a hot summer day if you're in the mood for sitting in the shade and getting immersed in something a bit different than your average mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great mystery by this author! July 16 2012
By Great Historicals TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Gold Mountain is the third Klondike mystery novel written by Canadian author Vicki Delany I've had the pleasure of reading. At the heart of all three stories is the strong and ever courageous heroine, Fiona MacGillivray. Her preteen son, Angus, and love interest, Corporal Sterling, of the North-West Mounted Police, also appear in this novel.

In Gold Mountain, we go back into time when Fiona makes the decision to escape the sins of the past and start a new life in the Klondike. The story opens with Fiona and her son travelling from Toronto to Vancouver where they boarded a ship to the Klondike. Once at their destination, readers are treated to vivid descriptions, colorful characters, unruly brawling, and the boom town mentality that existed during the gold rush. Fiona sets up a theatre/saloon type establishment (Savoy Salon and Dance Hall) frequented by the town's rowdy gold miners, including unscrupulous villains like Soapy Smith and his toady Paul Sheridan. Add to the story a secret map of a location rumored to be the mother lode of all mother lodes, and you have the start of another wonderful mystery. Soon Fiona finds herself kidnapped by Paul Sheridan on a quest to find the vast treasure.

Canadian author Vicki Delany knows her history. Over the span of her three novels, she has created vivid, memorable characters and unleashed them in the feral setting of Dawson Creek. There is a lot to like in these stories ' intrigue, greed, romance, historical detail, wily characters, and a warm-hearted tale of a single mother struggling to scrape out a living in a time and place where women had little or no rights. The prose is smooth and easy, making this a great whodunit! Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A few corrections May 22 2013
Format:Paperback
Reading the posted reviews of Vicki Delany's third Klondike mystery, I am struck by the carelessness of the reviewers. This is, indeed, the third Fiona MacGillivray novel, not the fourth, as one reviewer said, and it is set in Dawson CITY, not Dawson CREEK. The latter is a common error and the cause of many a misdirected letter, but as someone who lives in the former and has spent a bit of time in the latter, I can assure you they are not much alike. The confusion comes from them having both been named after George Dawson, once the head of the Geological Survey of Canada.
The book is fine, as were the first two, and takes us further into Fiona's background, as well as telling us a bit about how she ended up in the Klondike capital, while also pursuing the third plot thread concerning her abduction.
Vicki's finally going to visit Dawson in person this June and I'm looking forward to meeting an author I have read and interviewed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gold-Plated Read! April 15 2012
By D.J. McIntosh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm so glad to see Delany's unquenchable heroine, Fiona MacGillivray back, she's such a great character. This time, pursued by a formidable mountain man who is obesessed with her, Fiona must grapple with the greatest threat she's faced yet. Adding to the intrigue is the mysterious gold mountain. Does it really exist or is it simply another Klondike inspired myth? You'll be turning the pages to find out. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars The weakest in a strong series. Feb. 4 2014
By Elisabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read every book in the series and loved them all. This book is unfortunately the weakest of the bunch, but still very enjoyable. Fortunately, the series comes back strong with the fourth book, Gold Digger. Well worth your time.
