Book Review: “Slayed on the Slopes” by Kate Dyer-Seeley (Pacific Northwest Mystery #2)


Title:  Slayed on the Slopes

Author:  Kate Dyer-Hernandez

Series:  Pacific Northwest Mystery #2

Synopsis (from

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!


My thoughts:  If you have read my review of the first book in this series, Scene of the Climb, you know that I absolutely love this series and let’s face it, I’m reading the first 3 back to back – I can’t put them down.

Book #2 in the series takes us back to the beautiful Oregon scenery, Mount Hood, and the Columbia River Gorge in the middle of a winter storm as our dear main character Meg sets off to write a story about the Ridge Rangers – a rescue team.  Needless to say, things don’t go as planned, a winter storm traps her and the Ridge Rangers in the Silcox Hut with yes – a dead body!

Again, I loved the descriptions of the beautiful scenery of the Pacific Northwest.  It really makes this series for me – as a lifelong Midwesterner.   I was so intrigued by the places this author writes about I looked them up and read up on some of the history of the area.

If you are a nature lover and a lover of great cozies – get yourself into this series.  You won’t regret it.

And remember,

Books Are Life,
