Buried (book 1, Twisted Cedars Mysteries Trilogy)

In the coastal town of Twisted Cedars, Oregon an ugly secret from the past has been festering for over thirty years when five librarians were targeted by a serial killer. Now an anonymous emailer wants true crime writer Dougal Lachlan to tell the story. To uncover the truth Dougal enlists the help of local Twisted Cedar librarian Charlotte Hammond.  

Since the disappearance of her older sister, Daisy, eight years ago, Charlotte has led a quiet, sheltered life. But as Dougal's investigation proceeds she realizes there is no safe zone. Not even in libraries. And especially not in Twisted Cedars. 

Twisted Cedar Mysteries (a three book trilogy):

Book 1: Buried

Book 2: Forgotten

Book 3: Exposed 

"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." Kathy Altman, USA Today

    It was up as a freebie so I downloaded it. Just got around to reading it and was pleasantly surprised. Well built mystery with believable characters…not a cozy. Kept my interest. Will buy the next one.

    Very good read. Well thought out characters and in-depth family dynamics. Interesting story line that kept me glued to my phone 📱. I read it in 1 day. Excellent book, can’t wait to read the fallow ups in the series.
  • Wow wasn’t expecting such a great read!

    So happy I stumbled on this free book, my expectations we’re not high and thought it was to be a cheesy mystery. The TOTAL opposite. Such a great read, plot and characters can’t wait to read the rest!
  • Nothing Cozy about this book...

  • Living in the real Twisted Cedars!

    I stumbled upon this series while searching through free iBooks and was pleasantly surprised. It’s description mentioned it takes place in a small town on the southern coast of Oregon, but to my surprise, Twisted Cedars is actually the place I call home (it has a different real name) and even mentions the place where I’m employed. This is an easy read and sufficiently interesting to cause me to purchase the other two books in the series. I look forward to reading these and continuing to figure out the real people, locations, and businesses that are described as in this remote coastal town.
  • Loved it

    I’m not much of a reader but I’ve really been trying to do better. This book was great for a first time reader, the story was good and kept me focused so I didn’t have to read the same page 10 times. Almost half way through the second book now!
