#Review: Landslide by Robin Mahle @RobinMahle
I have read Robin’s Redwood Violet series and LOVED it. Her writing voice is so wonderful I could not resist reading more work by her. I highly recommend any and all of her books. A fresh voice that is highly addictive.
Claire is one of a million women trying to juggle work, family, being a mom and wife. Having an hour drive home each night is something of a stretch for any person but being a parent this takes so much time away from family. Colin, husband to Claire is not very forward in his domestic thinking. His thinking is similar to most men ‘the little wife needs to be in the kitchen and keep the house clean’.
When Claire finds an accounting problem with her work she thinks she has the golden nugget to move up the corporate ladder. What Claire did not realize is how far the problem goes up the corporate ladder.
Being offered a promotion is Claire’s dream, more money and a chance to move pass some of the office backstabbers. One of the people who enjoys causing problems for Claire.
When the FBI gets involved Claire realizes everything at the office is not what it seems.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a great night read. With my husband moving to a second shift I spend a little more time reading. Having never worked in the financial world I do not know everything involved in how the FBI would investigate but it seems everyone except Claire was refusing to get to the root of the problem.
This was a great suspense. The story and characters will keep readers guessing about everything. I recommend this to any who love suspense.

Author Robin Mahle is pleased to bring you her latest novel, Landslide. A corporate suspense/thriller that will pull you in fast and keep you holding on tight until the very end!
In the sprawling suburbs of Seattle, Claire McKenna finds solace in her perfectly ordinary life. With the daily struggles of raising a family and climbing out of debt, she and her husband Colin, work hard to hang on to what they’ve got.
So when Claire is offered an incredible opportunity to rise in the ranks of her firm, she jumps at the chance. Her joy, however, is short lived at the discovery that her close friend and colleague, Beth Graves has just been accused of embezzlement.
Compelled to see Beth’s name cleared, Claire soon stumbles on a larger, more dangerous conspiracy at the firm. One that involves people she once trusted. One that threatens to destroy her ordinary life.
An odor of car exhaust remained suspended in the parking garage and, when it mixed with the damp air, the smell was obnoxious. Claire reluctantly passed through the invisible cloud towards the elevators leading up to the lobby. Standing in the breezeway of the office entrance, she found that the doors were still locked. But when she looked through the tinted glass, she spotted Jim, the security guard on the night shift. No need for him to open it up for her. She held her magnetic keycard against the white box fixed to the wall. The green light at the top flashed and the doors clicked open.
“Good morning, Mrs. McKenna. You’re in awful early,” Jim said, taking a sip of his coffee.
Her high-heeled steps echoed on the marble floor, the lofty ceilings further amplifying the sound. “Well, good morning, Jim. It’s not often I get to see you. How’s the family? Denise doing all right?”
“She is and thank you for asking. What have I done to deserve such a fine sight on this dreary Tuesday morning?” Jim was a charmer to all the women in the building, but he’d known Claire the longest and seemed to hold a special place in his heart just for her.
She leaned over the high granite counter where Jim sat below the sign that hung on the wall. “Information Desk.” A knowing grin lit up her entire face. “I just found a major problem with one of our reporting systems.”
“And this is a good thing?” A perplexed look began to mask Jim’s previous warm-hearted smile.
“It’s a good thing that I was the one who found it.” Claire slapped the cold black stone. “A girl’s gotta find a way to get ahead in this world, Jim, and I think I just found my golden ticket. It’s going to be a good day.”
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Robin Mahle lives with her husband and two children in Arizona. She found her passion for writing, which later became her second career, after spending 20 years in the construction industry.
Having always been a lover of books, Robin attributes her creativity to the wonderful overseas adventures she has shared with her husband of 15 years. Traveling throughout Europe and having lived in England, opened her mind and with that came a steady stream of story ideas inspired by her author-idols in the suspense/thriller genre.
Robin published her debut mystery/suspense novel, Redwood Violet in March of 2013. And in September 2013, the much-anticipated sequel, All the Shiny Things (Redwood Violet II), was released. Both have become Amazon Bestsellers! Now, Beyond the Clearing has also joined the list! Her latest novel, Landslide, was released in July, 2014. This exciting corporate thriller reveals Robin’s unique voice yet again.
