It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader.

I just started reading this. The excerpts are from the E-ARC.


Sheriff Bet Rivers leaned back in her chair and gazed out the office window at the shifting light on Lake Collier.  Bright sunlight cast up sparkling diamonds as a late-summer breeze chopped the surface - turquoise-blue and silver.  The fragment of a song from her childhood teased her mind - silver, blue and gold.  She hummed the tune under her breath.

From 56% on my Kindle...

Bet kept herself in strong physical condition.  Even with her height, her strength couldn't match that of some men, but her endurance made her competitive in these kinds of situations.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

For fans of Julia Keller and Sheena Kamal, All We Buried disturbs the long-sleeping secrets of a small Washington state mountain town.

Deep in the woods surrounding the Cascade mountain range, a canvas-wrapped body floats in a lake, right in Elizabeth "Bet" Rivers's jurisdiction. Bet has been sitting as interim sheriff of Collier after her father's--the previous sheriff's--death six months ago. Everyone knows everyone in a town like Collier. She has made it her duty to protect the people she's come to see as family. And she intends to hold her title in the upcoming election, but she's never worked a murder investigation on her own before and her opponent and deputy, Dale Kovac, isn't going down without a fight.

Upon unwrapping the corpse, Bet discovers the woman is from out of town. Without an identification, the case grows that much more puzzling. Determined to prove herself worthy, however, Bet must confront the warped history of Collier. The more she learns, the more she realizes she doesn't know the townspeople of Collier as well as she thought, and nothing can prepare her for what she is about to discover.
