Seth Williams, the bumbling and incompetent police chief of Red Cedar, calls Liz Lucas and asks her to help him solve the murder of his deputy, Leroy.

His alibi is that he was getting a tarot card reading from Madame Dika, but she vehemently denies the reading.

Who killed Leroy? Was it Madame Dika, who had served time for a psychic scam involving jewelry? Her brother, Anton, who has ties to a Southeastern European stolen credit card ring? Tom Rice, an ex-felon who had been in prison for wife-beating? Donna, Leroy’s ex-wife, who wants to get the back alimony Leroy owed her by making a claim against his life insurance.

The day after, Mike finds out Aunt Agnes has made him the sole beneficiary of her large estate, including the Robertson Ranch and the beautiful Queen Anne house on it, she’s murdered.

Aunt Agnes was revered by many of the town residents, but she had her enemies as well. Did a local judge, a real estate developer, a nearby rancher next whose cattle desperately need water from Aunt Agnes’ property, a Vietnam vet who’s recently been evicted from the shack on her property or Mike’s newly discovered cousin murder her?



"Dianne writes the most entertaining books, and Calico Gold is no exception. Wonderful mystery with Sheriff Mike and Kelley, with such great scenery on a ranch, no less. Grab a comfy chair, a glass of wine and enjoy. I have read all the Cedar Bar Cozy Mysteries and not been bored once. But please read them in order, as you miss so much history from book #1."
Geneva


" I loved the way, the storyline and the description of the characters and scenery drew me into wanting to read more. It is difficult to put down. A bonus is that you can make the recipes when you've finished the book, or while you're reading it again. I came into the series at book six, but I don't think that diminished the story."
Barry Boy


"This was a very good and entertaining read. Just the right thing for a summer afternoon! Fun animals and quick resolution."

The cast of characters includes a handyman, spa employees, the bumbling police chief, the owner of Gertie’s Diner, the dead woman’s husband (the mayor), his girlfriend, and a Tiffany glass collector.
