Backcountry by Pamela Beason

A murder close to home…

Nature lovers Kyla Quintana-Johnson and her mother Kim Quintana have been brutally murdered on a popular trail in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, and grief weighs heavily on Summer "Sam" Westin.

Duty calls…

Kim and Kyla ran Washington Wilderness Quest, an outdoor therapy school for troubled teens. When Troy Johnson, Kim’s husband and Kyla’s father, begs Sam to take Kyla’s place as field guide on the last expedition of the year, she hesitates. Troy reminds her that the school was Kim and Kyla's dream. How can she say no?

A killer on the loose…

With no witnesses and few clues, the authorities seem clueless about how to investigate a double homicide in a wild area. As Sam struggles to guide her group of challenging teens through the backcountry, she begins to see signs that her friends’ killer may now be stalking her.

Greay storyline, probably the best of the series so far. I didnt figure it out til very near the end, which is unusual for me. Love it. Stephanie Clanahan

Slow starting, but story line good. Not overly amount of mush! Attention holder about middle of story. Good read

This fast-paced thriller puts Sam Westin in charge of a group of troubled teenagers on a wilderness trek. It's not just teenage angst and hormones that have Sam worried. She is still processing the murder of two of her dearest friends while they were hiking not all that far from where she is riding herd on the troubled teens. The sense of menace from the most dangerous animal in the forest, man, is palpable. Plenty of twists and surprises. Reviewed by the author of Chasing Nathan
