Local Sheriff Wade MacKay, and true crime writer Dougal Lachlan, finally realize that unless they pool their resources and work together, no one in town is going to be safe.

  • Twisted Cedars Trilogy - Should Be One Book

    By KatarinaArt
    This is a compelling read in the 1st book. You get interested in the characters and the mystery but as the 1st book ends there are a lot of loose ends. I enjoyed the series less as I reached the 3rd book. Basically you have to buy the whole Twisted Cedars Trilogy to learn the entire story and the original 1st book "Buried" mystery isn't solved until the last book. This trilogy should have been published as one book. I'm getting really tired of paying $16.00 (trilogy) or more for substandard stories. The last books are always repetitive and slow. I'd love it if the authors that publish like this would put their story(s) in one book, develop the characters by giving each one their own identity instead of them all looking so flat; one "face & voice" blends into the other. The only character in this series worth reading about is Dougal but even he falls flat by book 3.
  • Really good!

    By First review for a crap update
    Got the first book for free and it was interesting so got the remaining two books. The second one was interesting, and had some nice twists. The third one had gaping plot holes, weird character development, and a very strange dues ex machina popping in that did not even resolve all the questions. Glad I didn't waste more than 10$ on this unresolved mess.
  • Captivating! Couldn't put it down!

    Love the series! I would start and order the next series when it was completed!
  • So good!

    I downloaded the first book for free and loved it. It's so well written, tight and heart pounding, I immediately bought book two and then, of course, book three. I love how each book carried on with the major story and skillfully dove tailed the secondary stories and characters. The characters were well drawn, realistic and empathetic, except for Joelle. If Ed knew the truth about his father, what did Joelle and her baby have to do with it all and why did Ed kill them? Unfortunately that was never clearly answered and left a hole in an otherwise well written trilogy.

    Don't bother. I purchased the first in this series at a discount. It was entertaining so I wanted to read the next two. Part 2 and 3 add very little to the story that couldn't have just been in the first one. Two and three have to much filler of what happened in the first one.
  • Great Ending to a Wonderful Trilogy

    By raven 19
    Great book, keeps you on the edge of each page every time. As the last installment in a three part mystery novel, very well done.
  • Good read

    Nice tying up all the loose ends from the 1st and 2nd books in the series. Stayed up, wanting to know the whole story. Interesting surprises...
