Buried (book 1, Twisted Cedars Mysteries) 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. (approx. 250 pages) Read all the Twisted Cedar Mysteries: Book 1: Buried Book 2: Forgotten Book 3: Exposed Reviews: "CJ Carmichael is a seasoned author... and this shows in A Buried Tale. She has written a fluid, easy to fall into mystery and I'm really hoping there will be more books in this series. The first installment in the Twisted Cedar Mysteries was a great read and I can't wait for more." - Cozy Reader "One of my favorite elements of Carmichael's books is her gripping portrayal of family dynamics."

I got three-quarters of the way through this book before abandoning it. According to the ebook software, I had about an hours worth of reading to go.

Why put it aside so close to the end? It had become obvious that this wasn't really a complete novel. I was sliding towards a cliff-hanger ending and would have had to wade my way through another book, perhaps two, to get any real resolution. I hate that.

Why did I let myself get so far into the book? Well, the premise of a librarian-slaughtering, cold-case serial killer being investigated by a famous true crime author who has to return to his left-as-soon-as-I-could-and-never-went-back hometown seemed intriguing.

How can you go wrong with that? C. J. Carmichael managed it by writing all the characters at arms-length so that I felt I was reading a profile rather than meeting a person. This is an achievement given that the story is told from the point of view of three characters, two women and one man, yet none of them has a distinctive voice. Throw in the fact that the crime writer turns out to be a weak, undisciplined man who has never grown up and who does not meet even the few commitments he makes and I was losing interest in him solving any murders.

I initially held out some hope for the second plot-line of the writer's sister marrying a man who is clearly going to turn out to be a controlling and abusive husband and who may have killed his first wife. Except the husband comes straight from the how-to-define-a-narcissist handbook and has no personality as an individual. This makes it harder to sympathise with the smart-but-blinded-by-lust woman he sets out to break.

I felt like I was one step away from watching "The Bold and the Beautiful" with a garnish of librarian-slaying. Now, I'm annoyed with myself for having wasted my time on this. ( )

I somehow happened to get the e-book for free, don’t remember how and when. Found it on my bookshelf while travelling and I just couldn’t put it down. It got my attention from the very beginning, was full of action and well paced, very easy to read. My curiosity made me instantly purchase the two other parts of the trilogy.

Note: The main character trying to solve a mystery unconsciously solves a few other ones, but the main topic remains unsolved till the end and everything is only finally explained in the third book. Hence I don’t recommend it as a stand-alone. Nevertheless, I absolutely recommend purchasing the whole trilogy! ( )

For mystery lovers! Love the characters they are so full-bodied in their descriptions and actions. Even paced though I found it nearly impossible to set the book down, and a story with frequent twists and turns and an ending I was not expecting.

I read the reviews where many commented that this was a cliff hanger, but I disagree the central mystery was answered. Yes, there are questions .. that is what a trilogy is about .. threads hanging where different viewpoints are explored and different characters are highlighted. I knew going in that this was a trilogy, it says so in the Amazon title, maybe that wasn't added to the title in its early for sell listings.

Such a finely written, complex story can not be resolved or encapsulated in just 250 pages. ( )

Slightly different from the usual books I read, I found this one to be fairly slow paced but well thought out. Each character had their own personal demons in a tale of interwoven infidelity, unrequited love and murder. I so much wanted to give this book 4/5 stars but the ending just didn't satisfy and loose ends weren't pulled together. ( )

This was a great first book to a series. It was hard to put down once I started it. I'm anxious to find the next book now. ( )
