Description

Bitter Roots (Book 1 of Bitter Root Mysteries)

Murder in a small town is always personal.

Dispatcher Zak Waller prefers working behind the scenes in the Sheriff’s Office of Lost Trail, Montana, but when a newcomer to the sparsely populated town is brutally murdered—and the Sheriff is quick to pin the death on an unknown outsider—Zak starts his own private sleuthing.

On the surface Lost Trail is a picture-perfect western town, offering a simple way of life revolving around the local ranches and ski hill. But almost everyone has a secret to protect, and no one knows that more than Zak. He’s part of a younger generation hoping to revitalize the town. But evil has dug in deeper than he knows.

Perfect for fans of the British television film, Broadchurch.

    Wonderful small town mystery with many side storylines. It really held my interest without a lot of blood and gore talk.

    Set in a mountain town, with good people. A good rad, too bad it wasn’t one whole book. Don’t like to keep having to buy a bunch of small books to get the story finished. But I would like to know the ending. A good read.

  • A Wonderful New Mystery

    Lost Trail is a small town in western Montana and in this story we meet some of its residents and learn that there are lots of secrets in that town. I liked the way in which the Ms. Carmichael kept me guessing who the killer was and all of the various paths the story took me down. I’m glad that Zak wasn’t tainted by his brutal dad and that he stayed behind in the town after the rest of his family moved. Tiff was a fresh breath of air, worrying about her mother and all the happenings and changes to the tree farm, yet finding time to help Zak. Then there were all these other characters we were introduced to, setting the stage for future stories, I assume. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book to other readers and I for one look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    An amazing mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. Riley is new to Lost Trails, Montana when she is found dead on the steps of the medical clinic. Tiff has just returned home to the tree farm, after gone for many years. Dispatcher, Zach will use his own sleuthing to find the murderer. Love the cast of characters, all with interesting lives. Many layered secrets in this small mountain town, that I really enjoyed. Loved the town library!! I can't wait to visit Lost Trails again.
