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.

Review of Silenced in the Surf
Review (5 Stars): I absolutely love Meg and this series!!! In Silenced in the Surf, Meg has headed to Hood River to cover the windsurfing competition for Northwest Extreme. While she is there, she tries her hand at learning to windsurf when tragedy strikes, claiming the life of celebrity athlete, Justin Cruise. Finding herself involved in another murder mystery, Meg discovers rather quickly that Justin wasn’t the nicest of guys and there is no shortage of people that would love to see him disappear. Now, she must find a killer before it is too late and she becomes the next victim.
Silenced in the Surf was a delightful and entertaining mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat. I love seeing what situations Meg finds herself in when she takes new assignments for Northwest Extreme because I know she isn’t very outdoorsy even though she pretends that she is. This mystery was very complex, with engaging characters and so many twists and turns that even I had a hard time keeping up. I loved seeing how Meg’s love life was progressing as well as learning more about the sport of windsurfing. This is such a fun mystery series and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Dyer-Seeley comes up with next.
