Vanishing Trails continues the story of Daisy McLaren and Jake Smith begun in Appalachian Trails: A Smoky Mountain Mystery.

Daisy still believes her mother had been murdered just before Daisy’s graduation from UNC-Chapel Hill.

Ruth McCoy is the pen name of Linda McCoy Cromartie. Growing up in Mississippi, she left to study English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since graduation in 1973, she has lived in Washington DC, Northern Virginia, another stint in Chapel Hill, Athens GA, and back again in North Carolina—this time in the small mountain town of Franklin NC. The rich history, legends, and natural environment of the high valley town and its surrounding mountains continually inspire her writing. Learn more about her here.
