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.

Bittersweet page turner
Despite the saccharine aspect of some of the authors attempt to pull on the heart strings a bit much, This was an entertaining and involving story with a surprising conclusion.

Wow! C.J. Carmichael—this story is so great! Suspense kept me captivated throughout the different little plots within the main story. The characters were well developed too.
You are new to me, C.J. Carmichael. I am very happy to have found you. It has been a very long time since I have been so eager to have kept reading for long periods of time on a book. Plus, enjoyed the satisfaction of the epilogue!!! And, I plan on reading anything that you write!
