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!
I fully intended to read the first book in the series prior to reading Slayed on the Sloped by Kate Dyer-Seeley, but I ran out of time. Fortunately, Slayed on the Slopes was a book that was easy to pick up and jump right into, even if you hadn’t visited Meg and the other characters in this fun series. I was able to follow along and quickly get immersed in this awesome story. I thoroughly enjoyed the setting and really felt like I was on a trail in the Pacific Northwest. The adventure tips and guides at the end of the books in this series were a nice touch. I know if I lived in that area of the country, I would definitely want to check them out. I will be reading the first book in the series, Scene of the Climb, soon. I enjoyed Slayed on the Slopes and want to spend more time with these characters. This is a series I will continue to follow.
