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?
What better place to work than the great outdoors!
Crystal and her co-worker friends seem to have the best jobs and lifestyle. A variety of hiking, rock climbing, canoeing, and ... glamping?
Flirting and playing pranks on one another, we get to know more about each of their personalities through each adventure and dangerous encounter.
You can read this book as an enjoyable stand alone, but the characters are such fun, I recommend you appreciate the whole series.
When a trip Crystal is chaperoning results in the death of a billionaire, repurcussions resonate in shock waves. A close friend is arrested by the local cops, being pressured to close the case quickly.
Unable to afford proper legal help, Crystal calls in favors and takes an active role in discovering the truth.
Lives are endangered, Crystal herself becomes a target, but aid comes from a most unlikely source.
So many twists and bumps to keep us guessing. Even Crystal's boyfriend gets battered along the way. How will this affect their relationship?
You'll have to read to find out.
