As the clock ticks toward the deadline, Cherry faces more trouble than just a controversial subject. Between ex-boyfriends, her flaky family, an illegal gambling ring, and outwitting a killer on a spree, Cherry finds herself painted into a corner she'll be lucky to survive."An entertaining mystery full of quirky characters and solid plotting...Highly recommended for anyone who likes their mysteries strong and their mint juleps stronger!" - Jennie Bentley, New York Times Bestselling Author of Flipped OutRelated subjects include: cozy mysteries, women sleuths, murder mystery series, whodunit mysteries (whodunnit), humorous murder mysteries, book club recommendations, amateur sleuth books, small town humor, Southern humor.Books in the Cherry Tucker Humorous Mystery Series:QUICK SKETCH (novella in HEARTACHE MOTEL) PORTRAIT OF A DEAD GUY (#1) STILL LIFE IN BRUNSWICK STEW (#2) HIJACK IN ABSTRACT (#3) DEATH IN PERSPECTIVE (#4) THE BODY IN THE LANDSCAPE (#5) THE VIGILANTE VIGNETTE (novella) A COMPOSITION IN MURDER (#6) A VIEW TO A CHILL (novella)
