I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


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 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!

Meg Reed is a journalist for Northwest extreme. When she got the job she might have exaggerated her outdoor prowess. She is not stuck on Mount Hood at Silox Hut with a team of skiing extremists. She is doing a cover on the team who is going to teach extreme skiing to whoever wants the lessons. Everything is fine until someone ends up dead. Meg once again finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. Will she find the killer before they get to her?

In ” an Oyster Shell –  Another great book in the Pacific Northwest series set on snowy Mount Hood.

The Pearls – The characters of this series are just unbelievable. A girly girl outdoor journalist is just funny. She is the exact opposite of outdoorsy. She is surrounded by a myriad of memorable characters. There are some from the first books and some new ones. They all work together to make a great story.

The plot line is strong. I like that the book has it’s own plot line. Yet, there is a strong series plot elements threaded through out the book as well. It’s like you get two for one.

The setting was really fun. Set out at Mount hood. I learned more about the area then I knew. The author is really good at giving a history of wherever the story is set. I learned some new things it was great!

The Sand- I felt the action was a little slow on this one.
