The Gold Standard, Barbour Publishing's Heartsong Presents: Mysteries! has been re-edited and re-released by MuseItUp Publishing in September 2012.

New Cover - Meet Carranza

Judy Winters is pretty sure her environmentally-conscious great aunt didn't die of natural causes, no matter what the tox screens say. When she discovers she can inherent the family farm if she'll live there for a year, can she give up her teaching job and move to the country? Next door to the obnoxious young, unfortunately handsome, farmer with ties to her aunt? And what about a possible killer on the loose. Join Judy, Hart, Ardyth and know-it-all cat Carranza, for an all-Wisconsin adventure.

The cover designer, Nika Dixon, used it in her picture.
