"A mystery writer finds solace and murder in rural Oregon...Whimsy meets woodsy"— Kirkus Reviews

Don't miss the first book in a brand-new gripping and hilarious bookish cozy mystery series by author Tamara Berry!

Bestselling thriller writer Tess Harrow is almost at the end of her rope when she arrives with her teenage daughter at her grandfather's rustic cabin in the woods. She hopes this will be a time for them to heal and bond after Tess's recent divorce, but they've barely made it through the door when an explosion shakes the cabin. Suddenly it's raining fish guts and...is that a human arm?

Tess was hardly convincing Gertie that a summer without Wi-Fi and running water would be an adventure. Now she's thrust into a murder investigation, neighbors are saying they've spotted Bigfoot in the woods near her cabin, and the local sheriff is the spitting image of her character Detective Gabriel Gonzales—something he's less than thrilled about. With so much more than her daughter's summer plans at stake, it's up to Tess to solve this case before anyone else gets hurt.

Put your sleuthing hat on—Buried in a Good Book features:

  • A thriller writer who knows way more than anyone should about death and dismemberment
  • Her young daughter who's more intrigued by dead bodies than she probably should be
  • An isolated cabin in the woods that's probably—definitely—hiding something
  • The tiny mountain town that seems less than troubled by a sudden abundance of murders
