Still Life in Brunswick Stew by Larissa Reinhart

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. Part of the Henery Press Mystery Series Collection, if you like one, you'll probably like them all! Still Life in Brunswick Stew is the second book in the Cherry Tucker humorous mystery series. Bonus: Includes book club discussion questions.

  12. Haven't read Cherry Tucker's book yet, but it sounds like a delicious romp filled with humor! Thanks for a chance to win this wonderful giveaway!

  13. Love the blurb. Since I live in Brunswick County, I thought Brunswick (as a place) might factor into the book.

  14. It was such fun being part of this tour! So much lively conversation on the post!!!

  15. The Cherry Tucker Mystery Series sounds fun. How many books will be in the series? If they are written in the style of Daphne Du Maurier, they must be terrific.

  16. This sounds like a wild adventure turned nightmare. Isn't life as such - takes us all down, sometimes all at once.

  17. I love books that can "take me away" to another time or place, and this book certainly seems as though it could do that. I love the premise, and who wouldn't like a friend named Cherry Tucker? I am anxious to read this book and find out just how many laughs I can find in this book as I heard it was quite amusing and humorous and I love that, too, in a novel. Always looking for new authors or new to me authors to follow, so hope that Larissa is looking forward to more and more readers each week.

    Hope that my fingers don't fall off while they are being kept crossed to win!!!!

    Thanks for reading.


  18. Love the sound of Larissa's book!
