    This is another wonderful story set in Acker's Gap, West Virginia. Bell Elkins is the star of the novel, a promising lawyer who returned home to become Raythune County's prosecuting attorney. Helped and assisted by her friend and long time anchor after a troubled childhood, Sheriff Nick Fogelsong.Wi...

    Wow and wow again! I read book #1 "A Killing in the Hills" and enjoyed the setting of West Virginia and the character of Bell Elkins. I knew I wanted to read the second book of the series but got distracted by so much new stuff - you know, all the pledges of the next "Gone Girl". Well, this is teach...

    Bitter River is the 2nd book in the Bell Elkins series by Julia Keller. I enjoyed the first book, A Killing in the Hills, but this one was even better.

I expected this one to have less background -- we now...

    I didn't think the 2nd in the series was as good a read as "A Killing in the Hills". The CIA plot seemed contrived. The murderer seemed fabricated for surprise with too little foreshadowing. I think there is hope for this series. The author has made it clear that Bell Elkins loves West VIrginia so l...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Headline for the ARC of this book.Oh dear; unfortunately this is a really bad book.The writing is really clunky. It uses far too many adjectives, loads of tautology, and there is lots of unnecessary detail – it’s fine just to tell me the sheriff opened his notebook;...
