Review: Bitter Roots by C.J. Carmichael

Title: Bitter Roots
Series: Bitter Roots Mysteries
Author: C.J. Carmichael
Read copy: eBook (Kindle)

Publisher: Tule Publishing

Dispatcher Zak Waller prefers working behind the scenes in the Sheriff’s Office of Lost Trail, Montana, but when a newcomer to the sparely 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 Zak knows the truth behind the façade. When his old school friend Tiff Masterson, whose family owns a local Christmas tree farm, moves back to town, the two of them join forces to get to the truth about the murder.

My rating:

Slow and repetitive, with bland, uninteresting characters and a suspense sub-plot that was first pushed into the background and then resolved rather abruptly.
