Beehives: A Suspense Novel by Mary Coley

Discussion & Book Signing

Saturday, January 16th, 11:00 AM

10-1BeeHives-4Award-winning Tulsa Author Mary Coley, who just released her third mystery, will be speaking in general about the CCC work in Oklahoma’s State Parks, and specifically about Osage Hills State Park, the setting for this mystery.

“I enjoy incorporating historic events into my mysteries,” said Coley, “which focus on family secrets. In Beehives: A Suspense Novel, I use the Civilian Conservation Corps history of Osage Hills (one of the original seven Oklahoma state parks) and tales of the Depression-era gangsters who frequented this area of Oklahoma, to provide some of the twists and turns of the mystery.”

The tagline for the book is: Her mother’s secret first love … a hermit’s terror … gangster’s loot. Can Jamie learn the connection between the three before the past comes back to kill her?

Coley’s first two books, Cobwebs and Ant Dens, have both been listed as finalists in the 2015 New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards. Additionally, Coley won a 2015 “Creative Woman of Oklahoma” award earlier this year from the Gamma State chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society of Key Educators for Cobwebs: A Suspense Novel.

Although the books are a series, featuring the same main character, each book stands alone, she said.

Mary’s books are available to purchase at the Historical Society. For more information about Mary Coley, visit her website,
