Review of Slayed on the Slopes

Welcome to my tour stop for Slayed on the Slopes by Kate Dyer-Seeley! This is the second book in the Pacific Northwest Mystery series. Slayed on the Slopes released March 31st by Kensington Publishing. The tour runs April 6- 17 with reviews, interviews, guest posts and excerpts. Check out the tour page for more information.

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!

I received Slayed on the Slopes, the second book in the Meg Reed series, to review and I really have enjoyed this series.

  • Meg was right back in action, working with Rangers on a new story for her magazine, and then just her luck, another murder happens and she is caught up in the middle.
  • I feel like Meg is really working on becoming more adventurous for the magazine and I thought that showed a lot of gumption getting over her fear of heights and lack of athletic ability.
  • Gam was so stinking cute. I loved her new-age, hippie personality. She also gave amazing advice and saw the world in an interesting way.
  • Matt, oh Matt. I am rooting for Matt. He is such a sweetheart - and I want them to get together, maybe in the next book.
  • The mystery in the second book was as well-done as the first book. There were multiple points in the book where I questioned different people and was surprised when we found out who the murder was.
  • There was another round of craft beer in this book. I really enjoy that the author loves her delicious beer as much as I do.
  • This one just seemed a little dramatic, crazy things keep happening to Meg and sometimes it just seemed like it was a little over the top.

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