Four years ago, Elizabeth "Bet" Rivers left her small lakeside hometown of Collier, Washington, to become a patrol officer with the LAPD. Six months ago, Bet's father, Collier Sheriff Earle Rivers, called her home to become the interim Sheriff while he battled cancer. When her father suddenly died four months ago, Bet finds herself the Sheriff of the small town, up for election and challenged by Deputy Dale Kovac, and faced with her first homicide investigation. Bet needs to solve this case, and prove that she can follow in her father's footsteps.
As Bet delves into the case of a young female body found wrapped up in canvas and floating in Lake Collier, she soon discovers that her small hometown has deep dark secrets, and the more she learns, the more danger, potential motives, and suspects are added to the list, and one of them is determined to stop Bet before she uncovers and reveals all of their dark secrets.
Author Elena Taylor weaves a fast-paced and suspenseful tale that follows Bet's first homicide investigation as Sheriff of Collier. I loved reading this action-packed story. Bet's first foray into investigating a homicide case as Sheriff kept me intrigued as her investigative techniques were put to the test.
The reader will be easily drawn into this richly descriptive plot that will keep them guessing, as haunting secrets, and unexpected twists and turns are revealed. Bet's small hometown's deeply buried past comes to the surface as family secrets, a growing list of possible suspects, motives, and clues are uncovered. And if that's not enough, Bet has her own buried demons that she needs to face!
All We Buried has enough drama, tension, action, dark secrets, intrigue, a touch of romance, and unexpected twists and turns that will take the reader on one heck of a thrilling roller coaster ride.
Elizabeth “Bet” Rivers has returned home to Collier from L.A. to her small hometown in the mountains of Washington state to follow in her father’s footsteps as Sheriff. Currently the interim Sheriff, she is not certain she wants to stay even as she runs for election against her father’s deputy.
A Washington State professor is studying the dead glacial lake by the abandoned coal mine outside of Collier when he discovers a canvas wrapped body floating in the lake. Bet has never handled a murder investigation, but she is determined to solve this one to prove her worth to the people of her town and herself. This murder is eerily reminiscent of a terrifying dream Bet has had for nearly nineteen years. Was it a dream or a memory she would rather forget?
As Bet digs deeper into the disturbing history around her hometown, two hometown sons have returned at the same time the body turns up. The more Bet digs, the more she learns that she does not know the town people of Collier as well as she believed and she may be the next victim of the dead lake and the ghosts of the old mine.
This is a wonderful mystery read that kept me guessing and turning the pages. I would never have expected a debut to be able to pull me in to not only the mystery and characters, but also the landscape and ecology of the small Cascade mountain town and lake. Bet is a wonderful new lead character that I am looking forward to following into the future. She is realistic and relatable as are the secondary characters. The mysteries from the past and the present are intertwined and paced perfectly in my opinion.
I highly recommend this debut and first in a series mystery!
