Cozy Mountain Mystery # 1

Available on Amazon October 9, 2020


The Resort at Cozy Mountain has always enjoyed great prosperity, primarily through buying or destroying anything that gets in the way.


Fleeing her unhappy marriage, wealthy socialite Blythe Buffington has returned to Cozy Mountain to visit her invalid mother. After being harassed by her spoiled daughter, greedy first husband, and multiple buyers vying for her family home, Blythe discovers she may be flat broke.


What’s a former debutante to do?


Close friends Emma, Abby, and Georgie rally around their old friend Blythe and encourage her to move back home. Blythe promises to consider this proposition but then disappears under suspicious circumstances. It seems as if their good friend may have left Cozy Mountain forever. Or has she?


It’s spring in Cozy Mountain, and the stately homes on Grandview Boulevard are hiding some dreadfully dark secrets, both old and new.

Emma has inherited a Victorian mansion full of antiques and wants to turn it into a bed and breakfast. Starting a hospitality business when she has no experience presents many challenges, especially when uninvited guests keep showing up demanding to be given a room in a bed and breakfast that is not yet open.

Although estranged from her best friend Abby, Emma can still depend on her other friends to lend a hand. Unfortunately, Cozy Mountain is full of self-declared experts eager to spy on her every move and spread evil gossip about her plans.

As if Emma hasn’t got enough stress, someone keeps trying to kill one of her guests, and she needs to figure out who the culprit is before they succeed.

The Grandview Boulevard class war is headed for a showdown with Emma right in the middle. Will Emma end up the Queen of Cozy Mountain or will she lose her head?

The Queen of Cozy Mountain is the second book in the Cozy Mountain Mystery series.
