From Publishers Weekly
When Cat Benet inexplicably bequeaths his Kansas ranch to a civic foundation on the condition that his family be barred from the land, Jenny Cain, the foundation's director turned sleuth, goes to meet Benet, only to find him murdered. "Pickard writes fluidly on family ties . . . while her appealing detective displays warmth, intelligence and a social conscience as she perseveres in her search for the truth," commented PW.

From Library Journal
Another airy construction, this series addition whisks Jenny Cain, director of the Port Frederick Civic Foundation, to Kansas City, where she hopes to discover why a dying millionaire has willed a vast cattle ranch to her little-known foundation. Thwarted upon arrival by the man's murder, she visits the ranch, fraternizes with two transplanted cowboys, searches out three ex-wives, and takes on a troubled teenager--all in hopes of finding the murderer. The heroine skirts dangerously close to flightiness at times, which tends to dissipate tension, but on the whole, changes of venue and the odd ex-wife keep things in motion. Recommended.
