Co-author couple Tony and Price Shadowbrook head for Columbia Falls, Montana, to spend the summer in the northern reaches of the scenic Flathead Valley near Glacier National Park. Their hopes for a quiet summer of writing are dashed the first day when a neighbor lady tearfully shares the mysterious circumstances surrounding her husband's death from a fall off a mountain trail. Some say he jumped. His wife claims he was pushed. The Shadowbrooks once again find themselves swept into adventure, excitement, and danger. But that isn't the only complication for the Shadowbrooks. They must also deal with the woman's son, a big fan of Tony's western novels, a young lady who seeks their assistance in launching her singing career, an unusual summer home that is a tourist attraction, and their agent, who is constantly working a new deal. All of this, combined with long-range parenting of adult children who have some surprising news, guarantee the Shadowbrooks another hectic, humorous, and sometimes hazardous summer. Meanwhile, their trust in God is strengthened, their faith is shared, and their love for each other is deepened.
