Covering a windsurfing competition should have been a breeze for reporter Meg Reed, but with a killer in the curl, she's headed for rough waters… Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge is the windsurfing capital of the world, and Meg is stoked to cover the King of the Hook event for Portland's Northwest Extreme magazine. Before the competition gets under way, Meg has a chance to try some windsurfing on her own. But when the current sweeps her downriver, she spots a body snagged on the rocks. The dead man is Justin Cruise, aka Cruise Control, a celebrity windsurfer and not exactly a nice guy. It's soon clear his death was no accident, and Cruise had no shortage of enemies. As Meg dives right in to discover who wiped out the windsurfer, she'll need to keep her balance--or she too may get blown away. Praise For Scene Of The Climb "A splendid overview of the greater Portland and Columbia River Gorge region, perfect for travel buffs. Her protagonist shows promise with her determined attitude and moxie." --Library Journal "A fun, terrific adventure." --Suspense Magazine Includes Adventure Guides!

My Thoughts
Wow wow wow OMG!! This was another fantastic installment in this series Kate’s writing is amazing and keeps you hooked from cover to cover. I loved all the main characters as I have in the previous books and I love the way that Kate just keeps developing them more and more as individuals as well as their inter-relationships. The new characters in this story were interesting and incredibly well developed.

It was interesting seeing how Meg handled her new assignment as well as being thrown into the middle of yet another murder investigation. She dealt with it all in her usual calm, relaxed but ever professional manner. The friendship/relationship between Mat and Meg really started to seem like it might be developing into a relationship finally when they kissed. But then just as this has happened he had to leave town for a while as a result of what he has been finding out about what happened to her Father when he died.

This was a fantastic book which I thoroughly enjoyed so will read again in the future and cannot wait for the next installment. I also would not hesitate to recommend the book to others as well as buy it as a gift for anyone I know who I think would enjoy it. It is for these reasons that I gave the book 5 five star rating.

I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to both the Author and the Goodreads New Adult Book Club Read It Review It Programme for allowing me to read the book.
