Rated 3 out of 5 by from lacks finish A Blue and Golden Year by Alison Preston. In the complex and twisted plot that shifts between a small Canadian city and Mexico, Audrey Laird tries to regain some of the lost closeness with her drugged out and spacey sister, Lillian. When Lillian's lover disappears and a strange man is killed in their house, Lillian flees and comes under suspicion by Audrey's former lover police detective Frank Foote. Meanwhile Iggy has fled to Mexico and has reconnected with an old lover, Iris, who now owns a restaurant and lives with the rich, old and evil Ernest who has no shortage of enemies. In Canada Audrey reconnects with Frank while in Mexico Iggy reconnects with Iris and her daughter Janis and the huge and simple Heap Huggins who wants nothing more than to be with the nympho Honey who also is involved with the evil Ernest. The ending is a bit contrived but Lillian and Audrey do reconnect and the bad guys suffer. This is not a particularly good read but the writing is crisp and the story, though complex, moves along quite well.
