This book finds Cherry Tucker in the middle of an investigation into the death of her best friend Eloise. It seems that Eloise has ingested way too many cups of famous Brunswick Stew at the local arts and crafts festival. Cherry, who is a struggling painter and Eloise ,who makes Raku pottery are sharing a booth, much as they have shared their lives since elementary school.
Cherry takes us thru small town after small town in search of the REAL answer to the death of her dear friend. We find Cherry investigating not only the poisoining, but also a fight between land owners who also happen to be related to one an other. We encounters a stubborn teen-ager, a feisty senior citizen who is Cherry’s granddad’s latest flame, a hunky cop, (aren’t they all), and a business man who may or may not be all he seems to be.
Larissa writes with a fast paced style that caught my attention quickly. Her 3rd book in the series, Hijack in Abstract comes out in November, make sure it’s in your stack of TBR, I know it will be in mine!
