Why this book?:
It was one of the many cozy books I have checked out an waiting to be read.
A nice first in cozy mystery series. I liked Meg, even though she went back and forth on the maturity front.
Meg has just landed a job writing for an outdoor adventure magazine. She may be qualified on the writing front, but not so much on the subject. But wait, there's more. Not only has she gotten a position with this publication, but she now has a fantastic new story to write on a reality show that has reached the area featuring hiking and climbing many of the local nature areas. Too bad she doesn't know what she's doing, and is afraid of heights, and there's a murderer on the loose.
I wasn't really trying to figure out whodunit, but I pretty much figured if Meg thought someone was the murderer, they were innocent. Mostly because she is one of those quick to jump to conclusions characters. I guess that is one of the areas where she seemed a bit less mature.
Anyway, I intend to read the next book, Slayed on the Slopes, due out March 2015.
