AppalachianTrails: A Smoky Mountain Mystery
"I just finished Appalachian Trails and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Well done! I like your main character, Daisy. I love her relationship with the stray cat - so endearing. You capture the mountains and flora beautifully, and I love how de Soto and the Cherokee add layers to the mystery. My one complaint is the salad recipe on page 99. I had a hard time concentrating after that it sounded so good." Sara Johnson, author of The Bone Track and other Alexa Glock mysteries
"In this fine mystery, a newspaper reporter braves storms and threats to investigate a small plane crash on a mountain and perhaps learn why her mother died nearby years before. The author brings out the local color and characters, including the legend of Spanish explorer De Soto and a Cherokee princess." 5 Star Amazon Review
Someone wants her dead, and she doesn't know why.
Daisy McLaren is a small-town reporter with big dreams. She shares her garage apartment with a calico cat she rescued.
When she is drawn to the site of a small plane crash, she discovers it’s near a remote mountain road where her mother died years ago. What she thought was a simple crash turns sinister when she sees a man running away from the site. Her gut feeling is that the plane carried drugs to her small town. Not even her ex can convince her to step aside while the authorities investigate. As an FBI agent takes over the investigation, events spiral out of control. Bodies pile up as she struggles to uncover the truth.
With each passing day, the deaths are getting closer to home.
