Bitter River

Loyalty. The second novel by Julia Keller to feature Bell Elkins, the prosecuting attorney of Raythune County, West Virginia, is titled, Bitter River. Many of the interesting characters in this novel exhibit loyalty, especially to family members. Mystery lovers will enjoy the red herrings that Keller dangles before readers, and this novel will also appeal to those readers who are unhurried and enjoy getting to know the characters and the setting of a novel. Keller excels at these three elements: character, setting and continuity with the previous novel in this series. While either novel can be read on its own, readers of both can enjoy the connections and continuity. I’ve enjoyed Keller’s writing, and look forward to the next novel in this series. I’ve become as loyal as some of her characters. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Bitter River from
