Larissa Reinhart  |  May 2013


Cherry Tucker’s in a stew. Art commissions dried up after her nemesis became president of the County Arts Council. Desperate and broke, Cherry and her friend, Eloise, spend a sultry summer weekend hawking their art at the Sidewinder Annual Brunswick Stew Cook-Off. When a bad case of food poisoning breaks out and Eloise dies, the police brush off her death as accidental. However, Cherry suspects someone spiked the stew and killed her friend. As Cherry calls on cook-off competitors, bitter rivals, and crooked judges, the police get steamed while the killer prepares to cook Cherry’s goose.

“I adored Larissa Reinhart’s second Cherry Tucker mystery, Still Lilfe in Brunswick Stew. Reinhart lined up suspects like a pinsetter in a bowling alley, and darned if I could figure out which ones to knock down…Ms. Reinhart creates a protagonist full of gumption and surrounded by quirky characters.  Loaded with Southern charm.  Can’t wait to see what Cherry paints herself into next.” – Donnell Ann Bell, Bestselling Author of The Past Came Hunting

Schultz, Southside Book Reviews
