where did blue smoke come from?

Blue Smoke and Murder
by Elizabeth Lowell

Raft guide Jill saves the son of one of the execs at St. Kilda Consulting, who also employed the heroes in a few other books I've read, so he says if she ever needs anything...

Fast forward a bit and Jill's reclusive grandmother is killed on her secluded ranch, she receives threats when she tries to sell some family heirloom paintings, so she calls the dude and he sends Zach to help her.

There's all sorts of stuff involving male chauvinism, discrediting a famous Western artist, and restoring Jill's family's good name, with a showdown in a desert between Zach and one of the bad guys. And then they live happily ever after.

"Zach" is apparently a very popular "sexy dude" name, because that dude shows up a lot.

Also, blue smoke is usually associated with gunfire. That's my best guess, but still a lame reason for use in the title.
