Title: Spring Upon a Crime (A Seattle Wilderness Mystery Book 2)
Author: M.L. Erdahl
Since this is book 2 in a series I haven't started I enjoyed the authors ability to catch readers up quickly as the story is moving forward.
M.L.Erdahl is able to create a fun cozy mystery that readers will be able to enjoy from beginning to end. The author creates a cast of characters who become real as the story moves forward. Even though this is the first in the series I have read the author is able to make it feel like book one with reference to what happened in book one while keeping the story moving forward.
The Author captures the feel of small town and all the crazy politics that go into that small world. The author bring readers into the world they created and reader will not want to leave until they finish the mystery.
Thank you to Netgalley for the advance copy of M.L Erdahl Spring Upon a Crime.
Wilderness guide Crystal Rainey leads a group of college students to a private campground amidst the awe-inspiring Olympic Rain Forest. The excursion is ruined when the charming hostess Roxie is discovered standing over the land owner's body, murder weapon in hand. Enlisted to investigate the crime to absolve her friend, Crystal descends on the quiet city of Forks to find loggers, developers, and eco-protesters circling the property, intent on either exploiting or protecting the bastion of old-growth forest. The list of suspects is intimidating. Can Crystal find answers in a community determined to keep her in the dark?
