    Great Book & Great Characters

    Bitter Truth is an engaging and entertaining read. For me, this book is not about the mystery as much as the interesting characters who solve the mysteries and populate the town. The mystery in this book was good, but the character development is even better. Zak, our lead detective, is not really a detective. He is a police dispatcher in the Lost Trail police department. Zak is not interested in being in charge or even being a deputy, he is just interested in seeing that justice is served and that his small town stays safe. He doesn't solve crime because he is seeking glory, he solves it because someone needs to, and he is good at it. The secondary characters are really well written as well and I feel like there is a lot of material there for more books in this great series. I recommend this series highly to anyone who enjoys well crafted books with mysteries. I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.

    Cozy Mystery

    A cute and cozy mystery story with intriguing characters in a small town setting. The family drama and secrets of the town are leading the story forward. Despite the murder at the beginning of the story, it still has a surprisingly light tune. A touch of budding romance, lots of secrets revealed, even sweet holiday traditions involved. A book two in a series yet can be read as a stand-alone novel.

    Secrets of the Past Haunt

    LET ME FIGURE OUT WHAT I DID NOT LIKE ABOUT C.J. Carmichael's "Bitter Truth". Hummm...? Well not anything to mention here. NOW WHAT DID I LIKE ABOUT THIS MYSTERY? It was a stand-alone which was good since I had not read Bitter Root#1. The characters were amazing and interesting even the murder victim Lacy who died at the beginning of the book. There was family drama times three to keep the pages turning. Budding romances that were just that; not yet blooming but being pollinated. Past events never really going away but getting the dusty attic box opened to the light. Has the cat, the dog, adorable preschool girls and hay rides. Great holiday novel that takes place from Thanksgiving through the end of the year in a small community. Had a wealth of town folks to keep track of but as the mystery progressed everyone had their place and key roll to play. Did not end on a cliff hanger but did leave some crumbs to follow into the next book. "A copy of this book was provided by Tule Publishing via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." This is a great narrative not to miss.

    An Awesome Read

    An awesome read full of secrets and lies that the bitter truth will come out in the end. Not what you expect in a little town of Lost Trails, Montana, when they find the town matriarch, Lacy Stillman dead in her bed from a presumed heart attack. Zach, the town dispatcher for the local sheriff office wonders if there is more to the death of Lacy. Tiff, has returned home to help with the care of her mother with her aunt but soon family secrets to come out , as someone is forcing Tiff to leave town. A great cast of characters that I was fully engaged with. Lots of family drama. Plus , I'm rooting for a few budding romances that are developing. This is the second book in the series, that can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend that you read the first book too.

    Good friends Lacy and Zak continue to find deep secrets in small town of Lost Trails, Montana. Bitter Truth has wonderful plot twists and turns you don’t see coming. Many interesting characters with lots of family drama and secrets. This is an engaging storyline and a page turner. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. Well done mystery!
