Welcome to my tour stop for Silenced in the Surf by Kate Dyer-Seeley! This is book three in the Pacific Northwest Mystery series and released March 29th, 2016.
The tour runs April 4-15 with reviews, interviews, guest posts and excerpts. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.
About the Book: Covering a windsurfing competition should have been a breeze for reporter Meg Reed, but with a killer in the curl, she’s headed for rough waters…
Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge is the windsurfing capital of the world, and Meg is stoked to cover the King of the Hook event for Portland’s Northwest Extreme magazine. Before the competition gets under way, Meg has a chance to try some windsurfing on her own. But when the current sweeps her downriver, she spots a body snagged on the rocks. The dead man is Justin Cruise, aka Cruise Control, a celebrity windsurfer and not exactly a nice guy. It’s soon clear his death was no accident, and Cruise had no shortage of enemies. As Meg dives right in to discover who wiped out the windsurfer, she’ll need to keep her balance–or she too may get blown away.
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
In An Oyster Shell – This book is a nice change from the series. A slower pace I felt like you got to spend more quality time with the characters.
The Pearls –This is a great series and represents the Pacific Northwest perfectly. Can’t help but have a little Northwest pride after reading this series. I love that it represents the culture and the food. My favorite bit from this book is that coffee is a way of life here in the NorthWest. So True! Way to represent Dyer-Seeley!
I really liked the setting of Hood River. I haven’t spent much time there myself, but it seemed fairly accurate. I liked learning more about the windsurfing culture. It was just a fun book.
The characters just become more endearing with each book. Got to love Megs grandmother Gam. She is a hoot. The love interest Matt keeps you on your toes. There are just a great cast of characters in this series.
I reccomend it. I can’t see where it goeds there were some pretty big plot twists in this book promising the books to come will be worth the wait.
Don’t miss out on the first two books, Scene of the Climb and Slayed on the Slopes!
