Tiff is back in Lost Trail, MT after her life in Seattle crashed and burned. Zak is her high school friend, and dispatcher at the sheriff's office. Drama hits the small town when Riley, a newcomer to town who works at Tiff's family's tree farm, is found murdered in town. Zak and Tiff find themselves in the middle of solving the crime.
The cast of characters was great. I was in suspense right up until the end. I had many of my own theories about the murder, but this book was so well written that I couldn't be confident about any of them. There were several strong possibilities. I enjoyed the closure at the end, finally learning who killed Riley and the motivation behind it.
The story lacks substance, the characters are dry and one-dimensional, or contribute nothing to the story. None of the characters were truly likable, maybe Zak, but his constant mooning over Deputy Black got tiresome. The library scene and reference to Orange is the New Black seemed to be thrown in for no apparent reason. Everything about this novel was unconnected and unsatisfying. There were no twists, simply bad behavior on the part of the killer. The murder and its resolution were too mundane to be exciting. None of the characters were 3 dimensional and the attempts at intrigue were sophomoric at best. Too many loose ends left, which means one needs to read the next book to get some closure, for example--Willow's disappearance. But I will have to move on without finding out what was up since I don't intend to read any more of these books. Just too flat, unexciting, dull, and unbelievable to enjoy. But, I still encourage C.J. to continue to write as everything gets better with practice.
I would not recommend this book, while its a fast read its too disjointed to be worth the time and effort to plow through.
Referring to the Bitterroot National Forest as the Bitterroot Forest Preserve, and having a sheriff's deputy assigned to patrol that vast "Preserve", helps validate the novel's lack of credibility. It's not the duty of a county sheriff to "patrol" a private, state or federal forest. They have their own LEO's, or Law Enforcement Officers.
Only reason I chose to read this book was being a former 35 year resident of this beautiful valley and enthusiastic exploring backpacker of it's rugged mountain ranges, the Sapphires and the Bitterroots.
