A Buried Tale (Twisted Cedars Mysteries) by C.J.Carmichael


I was given this ebook today and it sounded so good I started reading it right away. Only put it down to answer the phone. If I had
the next book in the series I would start it right away. At different points I was guessing at different things. So some of guesses were bound to be right. This mystery keeps you guessing the whole book.

The characters draw you into thier lives making you want to know more about them. Some of them at different times I did not like to much. The more you learn about them the more you like most of them.

Dougal Lachlan I thought was cold and selfesh at first. He admits that in high school he was embrassed by who his parents were and what they did. He even admits he was wrong to look down on his mom. The hardest was knowing he did not come back for his mom's funeral. Dougal knows he was wrong but he came back to his hometown because he was worried about his sister and because of a email that told about a murder close to where he grew up.

Jamie Lachlan was planning her marriage to a great guy Kyle Quinpool. Kyle had twins,a boy Chester and a girl Cory age 9. She took care of her mom when she was dying and planned the funeral by herself since her brother did not come home for it.

Charlotte was a librarian in a small town. She loves books and is dating the Sheriff. Charlotte is all alone in the town after her parents died and her sister left her ex-husband and twins. I like Charlotte and can understand her character more than the others.

I love that the murders were happening in towns that I had visited in the past on vacations. Brought happy memories for me thinking about those different vacations. from Redwoods,ocean over to Pendalton. Beautiful state.

I really want to find out what happens next in Twisted Cedars. What changes are going to happen to the characters. Yes I plan to read the next book.

I was given this ebook by the author and asked to review it when I finshed.

Book discription below taken off

Justice is overdue in the coastal town of Twisted Cedars where two unsolved mysteries lay buried in the past.

Over thirty years ago a series of murders targeting Oregon librarians was never solved. Now someone with inside knowledge is feeding clues to true crime writer Dougal Lachlan, promising him the best story of his career. Pursuing the leads means returning to Twisted Cedars, where his sister Jamie is about to marry a man he deeply dislikes.

Local Twisted Cedars librarian Charlotte Hammond prefers her mysteries--and her romances--between the covers of a good book, especially since the disappearance of her older sister, Daisy, eight years ago. But then the dark and tortured soul who is Dougal Lachlan walks into the Twisted Cedars Library asking for her help.

Before long Charlotte realizes there is no safe zone. Not even in libraries...and especially not in Twisted Cedars.
