About the Book:


After talking her way into a job writing for Portland’s Northwest Extreme magazine, Meg Reed may now really be in over her head. Actually, about 8,000 feet over her head. . .





She’s at Mount Hood’s remote Silcox Hut, covering the seriously hardcore Ridge Rangers—Oregon’s elite high-altitude rescue team–during their four-day winter training. Sure, Meg beefed up her outdoor skills over the summer . . . but she’s still hoping to cover the event with some hot chocolate by the cheery fireplace. Then, during a sudden blizzard, she swears she hears gunshots. No one stranded in the hut believes her . . . until self-absorbed Ridge Ranger Ben Rogers is found outside in a pool of frozen blood. Meg’s now got to find this killer quickly . . . before cabin fever does them all in!





Praise For Scene Of The Climb





“A splendid overview of the greater Portland and Columbia River Gorge region, perfect for travel buffs. Her protagonist shows promise with her determined attitude and moxie.” –Library Journal





Includes Adventure Guides!




What I Thought: 

For someone who hates snow and cold, I enjoyed this read.  It had a lot of action in it that kept me turning the pages.  I am also not much of an outdoor person, but enjoy reading about the beauty and splendor of Oregon.  Meg is a girl after my own heart.  She has to go on some extreme adventures for her job, and she isn't really comfortable with some of the extremes she has to do.  There are a lot of suspects in this one, and it kept me guessing till the very end.  Meg is also dealing with her feelings for her friend Matt, and she is also dealing with something she saw her friend, Jill's, boyfriend doing.  Meg has a lot going on in this novel.  If you love adventure and a good mystery with superb writing, then this is the series for you.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.


Don't miss out on the first book, Scene of the Climb, available now!
