Finding the Bad Inn
Discovering My Family's Hidden Past

by Christy Leskovar

published by Christy Leskovar

  • Imagine while at a quiet family gathering, your aunt happens to mention a fire and a dead body and that your great-grandmother was arrested for murdering your great-grandfather. After you pick your jaw up off the floor, what do you do? Of course, you go traipsing across the globe--from Butte to Belfast to Belgium--to find out what happened and write a book about it. Finding the Bad Inn: Discovering My Family's Hidden Past is the true story behind how Christy Leskovar discovered who started the fire, how the body ended up on the ranch, why her grandmother was sent to an orphanage when she wasnít an orphan, what really happened when her grandfather saved that man in the war, and so much more. It is the true detective story behind One Night in a Bad Inn.

Christy Leskovar align= Christy Leskovar was born in Butte, Montana, and grew up in Kennewick, Washington. She graduated from Seattle University with degrees in mechanical engineering and French, and then joined Bechtel Corporation in Gaithersburg, Maryland, where she worked on the design of nuclear power plants. After stints in Kansas, Barcelona, and San Francisco, Christy transferred to an assignment in Las Vegas.

It was during a visit to her hometown that she learned the shocking news about her great-grandmother having been arrested for murder in 1913.

Christy left her engineering career set on discovering what happened, and to write a book about her discoveries. Her original goal was to write one book about all four grandparents. As she began to pursue the story, she quickly discovered that there was far too much for one book. Now there are three. Christy Leskovarís books are true stories, non-fiction based on her own family.
