The humor ramps up when Rhi and Didi, the Lucy and Ethel of crime fighters, crash a Supreme Cosmetics workshop while on vacation in Door County. Supreme Cosmetics is owned by Fantastic (Frantastic) Fran, President and resident Valkyrie in charge. The narcissistic "I'm just fabulous" diva of her own cosmetics empire is hated by many. When Frantastic Fran ends up dead in her pink Cadillac, dead from her big hair extensions to the tips of her pink soled Manolo Blahniks, the dynamic duo of Rhi and Didi go to work to solve the crime. Of course, there are multiple suspects to choose from. Is the murderer Fran's jealous ex-husband, her best high school frenemy, her current toy boy, her much put upon assistant, her marketer with the deep dark secret, or one of the attendees of her workshop who has an ancient ax to grind? Suspects, plot twists, and red herrings abound. Rhi and Didi, best friends since kindergarten, go on a cheese head adventure spree in the country to ferret out the killer. Along the way, they encounter the meanest pig in history, a bewigged bi-polar madman, a few twisted vengeful psychos, a Russian mob retiree boss, and a lot of general craziness. Rhi dons a Marlene Dietrich look alike costume and disguises herself as a mob moll, takes a dive off a cliff into Lake Michigan, hitches a ride on a farm truck where she meets the Hound of the Baskervilles, and ends up in the confessional seeking sanctuary in the Catholic Church. Rhi, in the spirit of the cozy mystery, includes easy recipes for those who, like her, cannot cook, bake, sew, knit, or crochet, and failed Home Ec. She also feeds the soul as well as the body with poetry at the start of every chapter. In this episode in the sleuthing life of Rhi Nolan, our intrepid heroine gives us the therapeutic answer to all of life’s problems; chocolate. Rhiannon’s Door County vacation from her law practice in New Belgium, LaFollette County, on the edge of Lake Michigan, might be a respite from the colorful characters in her everyday life, but it’s no vacation from murder and mayhem. It's a wild ride and another great adventure for Rhi and Didi, at large and lovable as ever. Welcome to the series that various readers have said is, “Brilliant, can’t put down reading, entertaining, clever, witty, great, hysterical, laugh out loud funny, and everything a cozy mystery should be. Funnier than Lucille Ball. My sides hurt from laughing. Write faster! I can’t wait for the next one!”

Because Door County received its name from "Death's Door," the perilous strait with more freshwater shipwrecks than anywhere else in the world, it should be no surprise that the idyllic county has plenty of ghostly history. In the company of storyteller Gayle Soucek, meet lighthouse keepers whose sense of duty extends beyond the grave. Catch a glimpse of the phantom ship Le Griffon, never seen for more than a moment since it sailed through a crack in the ice in 1679. And it is not just the waters of Door County that carry the freight of haunted tales--Country Road T has its share of spooks, bizarre beasts have caused disturbances in the woods and there are whispered rumors that infamous gangster Al Capone added to the county's stock of ghosts through a handful of brutal murders, including an ex-girlfriend and two unacknowledged children.

Befitting its role as Wisconsin's thumb, Door County has its own unique pulse. It is the idyllic paradise "north of the tension line," that sends many unsuspecting tourists spiraling into an addiction that lands them in a summer home. It is also the "Door of the Dead," which some historians blame for more shipwrecks than any other body of fresh water in the world. The variety of nature's splendors and terrors is matched by the cast of characters that has risen up among them. In Door County Tales, these characters are given free rein, which seems only proper in a place where one might walk out of a restaurant and see goats grazing on the roof.

Sheriff Dave Cubiak is ensnared in a killer's cunning gambit. It's a sparkling August day on Washington Island and the resonant notes of stringed instruments float on the breeze toward sailboats and the approaching ferry. After a forty-year absence, the Viola da Gamba Festival has returned to the picturesque isle on the tip of Wisconsin's Door County peninsula. Sheriff Dave Cubiak enjoys a rare day off as tourists and a documentary film crew hover around the musicians. The jubilant mood sours when the ferry arrives and an unidentified passenger is found dead. Long-time residents recall with dismay the disastrous festival decades earlier, when another woman died and a valuable sixteenth-century instrument--the fabled yellow viol--vanished, never to be found. Cubiak follows a trail of murder, kidnapping, and false identity that leads back to the calamitous night of the twin tragedies. With the lives of those he holds most dear in peril, the sheriff pursues a ruthless killer into the stormy northern reaches of Lake Michigan.
