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


  • Not an I-novel

    By wonttakeless
    Quite refreshing to read such a novel from the perspective of a third person. The title seems a giveaway to the plot but, since it leaves unanswered questions to the main character’s original mystery probe, the plot continues in the next book.

    An interesting read. Keeps your interest. The ending was too abrupt thus a little disappointing.

    First book I've read by CJ Carmichael but won't be the last. Found it to be a real page turner as his style of writing is my style of reading. It's a semi-thriller which moves swiftly involving several characters. Needless to say, a buried body is found! Read and enjoy!

    This book was a great read. I have not read any of her books but after reading this believe will find more books. The plot was hidden until the very end and even though I felt I knew where it was going there was just enough subtle changes to question it

    This is a great book to read. I can’t even image how the other parts of the trilogy proceed. Her writing style puts you watching the whole story happen. You never can quite figure out what’s next. Worth reading!
