“[A] well-written and complex tale.”
—Dru’s Book Musings

“A complex, richly imagined, atmospheric mystery, Bitterroot Lake kept me guessing whodunit until the very end.” —A. J. Banner, #1 bestselling author of The Good Neighbor

“Compellingly comfy and eerie in all the right places, Bitterroot Lake features the recently widowed Sarah McCaskill, who has returned to her childhood home at Whitetail Lodge in idyllic Northwest Montana to cope with grief. When she arrives she discovers that one of her old friends has also returned. So begins a journey into the past where they are forced to face an old tragedy that is tied to the recent murder of another friend. Bitterroot Lake is a gracefully written exploration of the secrets that destroy friendships and the courage it takes to face the truth. Atmospheric, character-driven, and truly absorbing, Bitterroot Lake is crime fiction at its finest.
—Christine Carbo, award-winning, best-selling author of the Glacier Mystery Series

“Old secrets and old ghosts live on in Alicia Beckman’s stunning new suspense novel, Bitterroot Lake. With gorgeous writing, an atmospheric Montana lake-house setting, and a plot that weaves together layers of history, Beckman’s deep dive into the psychology of guilt, friendship, fear, and courage will pull you in and keep you reading until the final reveal. This one is a winner.
—Connie Berry, Agatha Award-nominated author of the Kate Hamilton Mysteries

Bitterroot Lake is a twisty, haunting thriller propelled by a delicious hint of otherworldliness. It’s a book that’s both an expert mystery and an affirmation of love and family. I was absolutely enthralled.”
—Emily Carpenter, bestselling author of Burying the Honeysuckle Girls

“With a rich sense of place and a deft handling of fractured relationships, the pull of the past, and the pain of new grief, Alicia Beckman weaves a satisfying tale of secrets and lies eating away under the surface of happy families and close-knit small towns. And a touch of magic too!”
—Catriona McPherson, Edgar-nominated author of Strangers at the Gate
