Bitter Truth (Book 2 of Bitter Root Mysteries)

Murder in a small town is always personal.

In the isolated ranching community of Lost Trails, Montana, Lacy Stillman, a rich elderly rancher has died of a heart attack in her own bed. What could be more normal than that? As Zak Waller, dispatcher with the local Sheriff’s Office, joins the town in mourning the loss of the community matriarch, some disquieting information makes Zak wonder if Lacy’s death was not what it seemed. 

Meanwhile, Zak's friend Tiff Masterson is overwhelmed by her mother’s escalating mental breakdown and her aunt’s stubborn denial of the problem. Tiff assumes the root of the problem is the death of her brother and father sixteen years ago. But the real atrocity goes back much further than that. When the truth is revealed in a shocking twist, Tiff’s world is turned completely upside down. The ramifications affect many of the most prominent citizens and provide the missing clue to Lacy Stillman’s murder.

Perfect for fans of the British television film Broadchurch.

Great follow up

Great follow up. A rare sequel that’s better than the first. This one followed a different murder that lead to a whole unraveling of last mysteries for many of the characters. The characters in this one made much more sense. In book 1, I didn’t really understand the various spotlit characters. But book 2 makes sense of it all.

Really enjoyed the mystery. Kind of guessed it but not the details or the overarching reach of it.

Really enjoying this series. Will keep going.
