The Blue Butterfly
When the Lotis Blue butterfly, an endangered species, is sighted in a forest where logging operations are being conducted, it sets off a chain reaction in the small town of Red Cedar, California. David Sanders, a Forest Service employee and the step-brother of the popular owner of Gertie's Diner, is found murdered after he entered the forest to look for the blue butterfly. But who killed him?
There are plenty of suspects, and what's the motive? Was it the Jefferson Lumber Company employee who developed cancer from the improper use of formaldehyde at the company's plywood plant? Or George Myers, the jealous husband of Ruby, David's former lover, who has anger issues? Ruby could also be considered a suspect. And what about the Environmental Studies teaching assistant? Or the Forest Service employee who's fanatic about saving the environment. Or even Gertie?
Join Liz Lucas and her boxer guard dog, Winston, as she helps the incompetent, bumbling chief of police search for the murderer before he makes a mistake and arrests her friend Gertie. As always, there are dogs, good food and recipes.
This is the fifth book in the Liz Lucas Cozy Mystery Series. Dianne is also the author of two other cozy mystery series, Cedar Bay and High Desert, both of which are best sellers. To find out more about Dianne and her books, visit her web site at www.DianneHarman.com
