Spring Upon a Crime (A Seattle Wilderness Mystery)
by ML Erdahl

The characters are interesting and the setting offers unique opportunities for story twists and turns.  The pace is steady and the interactions maintain tensions beyond the murder and threats to the ecosystem.
~Christa Reads and Writes

I loved the characters and loved the setting around a National Park.
~My Reading Journeys

Spring Upon a Crime is an entertaining cozy mystery filled with great characters, a beautiful setting, humor, and a baffling murder mystery
~Christy’s Cozy Corners

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.
~Laura’s Interests

The characters are engaging and the rain forest lovingly depicted. I enjoyed scenes both in the forest and in Seattle, with an extra bonus for places I know and could recognize.
~The Ninja Librarian

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it to those who love a good cozy mystery.
~Literary Gold

Spring Upon a Crime is very much a product of our times. It exemplifies the fight over what to do with natural resources such as old growth forests. Kudos to the author for tackling this difficult subject.
~Mysteries With Character

This was my first book by M.L. Erdahl and it won’t be my last. I was pulled into the story and turning the pages to see how the mystery was solved.
~Novels Alive

. . . a fun cozy as it all plays out. Full of characters that you can love as well as an adorable kitty that will keep you in the book until the very end. Really a must read. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars

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?
