Scene of the Climb - Kate E. Dyer-Seeley

This was not my bag.

There were a few scenes about the Oregon hiking trails and wildlife I enjoyed, but that was about it.

The mystery was forgettable and the main character was too silly to even be credible.

I had to laugh when at 81% into the book she thinks she’s being pursued by a murderer and briefly considers to call the police.

The book had a strong start, but then quickly lost it when instead of an investigation, our MC, a wannabe investigative reporter, spends more time musing about lattes and food and crushing on both her boss and her old college friend than actually, erm, investigating.

So, in the end we get a solution that came out of nowhere. At least, it meant there was an end to the book.
