Bitter Roots by C. J. Carmichael

Bitter Roots (Book 1 of Bitter Root Mysteries)

Dispatcher Zak Waller prefers working behind the scenes in the Sheriff's Office of Lost Trail, Montana, but when a newcomer to the sparely 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 Zak knows the truth behind the façade. When his old school friend Tiff Masterson, whose family owns a local Christmas tree farm, moves back to town, the two of them join forces to get to the truth about the murder.

Bitter Roots is the first of four Bitter Root Mysteries.

Good storyline and characters, just written with too much conjecture and too little facts. At times I wondered if the author liked her characters.

When his old school friend Tiff Masterson, whose family owns a local Christmas tree farm, moves back to town, the two of them join forces to get to the truth about the murder. I honestly don't remember getting this book. It is a lot more gory and darker than the mystery I usually pick up to read. Bitter Root was well written with strong characters. If you like in depth crime dramas then you will enjoy reading Bitter Roots. My rating of "Bitter Roots" is 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Welcome to the very small town of Lost Trail, Montana.... where nothing exciting ever happens. Well .... almost. A young woman is found brutally beaten and left dead at the back entrance to what passes as a hospital. New in town, no one seems to really know her. She had just started working at the Christmas Tree farm. So who would want her dead? The sheriff rapidly comes to the conclusion that there could absolutely not be anyone from his small town ... obviously it was someone from her past. But there are two people who do not agree. Zac Waller is the police dispatcher, a job he loves, although he's way over-qualified. He does more investigating than the Sheriff does. Nadine Black is the new Deputy. On the surface, Lost Trail is quiet and unassuming ..... it's the underbelly that's filled with secrets and lies ... and murder. I really enjoyed this story set in a small, small town ... where everyone knows everyone else....for the most part. It's well written, I can almost smell the Christmas trees. The characters are outstanding. Although there are no frantic chases or bodies falling, it's a constant, no surges of adrenaline. Quite enjoyable mystery. Zac hasn't decided what he wants to be when he grows up, but right now he's very happy doing the job of dispatcher. He just can't help himself doing a bit of investigating himself. An old friend comes back to her hometown and while people think they are a couple .. they aren't. Zac has his eyes on Nadine, but not sure he wants to go there. All the secondary characters are extremely reminiscent of small town life. The 90+ year old librarian .... the man who marries a woman in order to give her daughter a father. He has a huge secret that not even his father knows .. and how does he tell his new wife, who seems to have an agenda all his own? The couple who have adopted a brand new baby ... and even after wanting a baby for so long, why are they not happy? Bitter Roots is the first of three Bitter Root Mysteries. No cliff hanger with this book. I won this book as a give-away from Library Thing. So I wish to thank them and the author. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
