Bitter Roots

Bitter Roots Summary

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.

Intriguing to the rnd5 star

I’d love to see this series play out on tv. I think it’s going to be one that, if fine well, will really develop and get under your skin. Zak was my favorite character, and I’m curious to see how he develops. I confess I usually figure out the end before the MCs in these types of books, but I didn’t thus time. Great characters. Good mystery. Subtle and not action packed. But the heart is in the town and it’s people.55

This was a different type of mystery book than I’m used to reading. I liked it though and it was certainly nice to have a murder mystery and no wild sex involved. The last chapter and epilogue put a nice little bow on everything at the end. Good job.35

A very nice read5 star

Plot is intriguing. Most of the characters are usually quiet citizens of this quaint small town in Montana. But when a person who is new to the town is murdered then the two main characters go into action and provide a great murder mystery.55

A very intriguing book that I had a hard time putting down. Murder, mystery and a suggestion of romance. What more can you want.45
