With more than 3 million books in print, USA Today Bestselling and RITA award nominated author C. J. Carmichael still can't decide which she enjoys more, writing small-town romance or page-turning mysteries. So she does both. She is currently working on the last book in the multi-author series, Love At The Chocolate Shop, as well as her new Bitter Root Mysteries. Her 2015 release, A Bramble House Christmas, is scheduled for release as a Hallmark Movie in 2017. Reader favorites, including her Carrigans of the Circle C ranch stories, as well as her Twisted Cedar Mysteries are available in both ebook and trade paperback formats. The Carrigans of the Circle C novels are also available as audio books.

When she isn’t writing, C.J. loves to be out

Have you watched Broadchurch, the mystery series on NetFlix? It has everything I love in a good mystery series. A picturesque, somewhat isolated, small town. A cast of intriguing characters, all of whom seem to have at least one terrible secret to protect. And a heart-wrenching crime that forms the backbone of the story.

I watched Season One of Broadchurch about a year ago, well after I had penn... Read more of this blog post »

A Buried Tale (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: Justice is overdue in the coastal town of Twisted Cedars where two unsolved mysteries lie mired 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.

M.K. I admire Elizabeth Berg, too. I only need to read a few pages of her stories before my craving for well-tuned lines is satisfied.
