Settled on a Mountain is a work of fiction in the interpersonal drama subgenre and serves as the third installment in the Love is a Cabin series. It is suitable for the general adult reading audience and was penned by author Jacque Jacobs. The book follows protagonist Bella Anderson as she questions her decision to move back to her family home following the death of a family friend and the rise in crime in the area. The roots she has started to put down in the community could be enough to keep her in the mountains of Tennessee, but the decision isn’t an easy one to make.
This book is an accessible and delightful love letter to the lifestyle enjoyed by those who live in the mountains. The picturesque world and serene way of life draw the reader into the world of the book and invest them in the story in a way that they wouldn’t without author Jacque Jacobs’s gorgeous descriptive writing. Bella remains an excellent protagonist for a drama in this style; constantly aware enough of both the allure of mountain living and its shortcomings in such a way that the life she is living is made appealing but grounded in realism. The links to the other characters in the community around her are where the heart of Settled on a Mountain lies. It is within these interactions that we see the heartwarming moments that keep Bella invested in her living situation and come to understand the appeal of a small tight-knit community over the loneliness of a city crowd.
