Cozy mystery adventure Book 3, Hidden West Series: Columbia Falls by Stephen Bly and Janet Chester Bly
Some say he jumped. His wife claims he was pushed. In this cozy mystery adventure novel, Tony and Price Shadowbrook head for Columbia Falls, Montana in the scenic Flathead Valley, near Glacier National Park. Their hopes for a quiet summer of writing and research are dashed the first day. A neighbor lady in tears shares the mystery circumstances surrounding her husband’s death from a fall off a mountain trail.
Is it an accident, murder, or suicide?
The Shadowbrooks once again find themselves swept into their own cozy mystery adventure story, full of excitement and possible danger. But they must also deal with the woman’s son. He turns out to be a pesky and persistent big fan of Tony’s western novels. Also, a young lady seeks their assistance in launching her singing career. And their unusual rented summer home is a tourist attraction. Among other unique features, it’s got a doorbell that sounds like a gunshot. All this combined with long-range parenting of adult children who have surprising news themselves stirs up this cozy mystery adventure.
Excerpt from Columbia Falls cozy mystery adventure novel:
The bright Montana sun straight above her, Price Shadowbrook inspected the massive logs of the building. She pushed her honey-tinted SolarRay sunglasses to the top of her golden-brown hair. “This is incredible,” she said as she sneezed.
“Didn’t I tell you this was one great house?” Black cowboy hat pushed to the top of his head, Tony opened the tailgate of the leased Grand Cherokee.
“Is that the garage?” she said, a bit dazed.
“Yeah, it forms the shaft of the arrow. You drive in one side and out the other to complete a loop. I suppose we’ll use the carport near the door most of the time. Isn’t this just the kind of lodging you’d expect from Trak Garett?”
“It does fit. Who else in the world would live in a gigantic arrowhead?” Price meandered toward the huge, shaded windows and tried to peer in.
“Wait until you see the inside,” Tony called out. “It’s pure drama.”
