Mike, the sheriff of Cedar Bay, and Kelly, his wife and owner of Kelly's Koffee Shoppe and the creator of all the delicious recipes which are a big feature in this series, has her fingers crossed behind her back once again as her husband makes her promise not to try to help to clear HIS name as a murder suspect. His elderly but sprightly Aunt Agnes is murdered the night they arrive to visit her at her ranch in Calico Gold. There are about 5 other suspects as well---but who would want her dead the most--Her next door rancher who needed water for his cattle (he wanted her to take down a dam on her property); her nephew who she had supported since his Mom's death-but was leaving nothing to (and she told him this); the judge in town who was in cahoots with the outside developer--both for nefarious reasons or the tormented Vietnam vet who lived in a shack on her ranch but was just told he had to leave? Top all this with--Aunt Agnes was worth a fortune! Thank heavens for his dog Rebel who is not about to allow anyone to hurt Mike! In addition to clearing his name will Mike figure out a fair and equitable solution as to how to divvy up this fortune a bit? More recipes to try out and they all sound delicious! Now I have to wait impatiently for the next book in this series!!!!!!
About the Book: (from Amazon)
Book #6 in the Best Selling Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series from Amazon All Star Author Dianne Harman. Kelly and her husband, Sheriff Mike, take a trip to the small town of Calico Gold, California, upon receiving an SOS from his elderly Aunt Agnes. 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. Was it 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 who murdered her? Join Kelly, Mike, and their dogs Rebel and Lady, as they work to clear Mike’s name and bring the murderer to justice. As in the other books, there’s plenty of food, dogs, and recipes.
