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.

Reader review . . . 

Cherry and her friend Eloise hoped to make money selling their art at the Sidewinder Annual Brunswick Stew Cook-Off, but everything went horribly wrong when Eloise suddenly became ill and died.  Cherry shares the opinion of Eloise's family that the death was not accidental, but the police don't agree.  She begins to conduct her own investigation, but the killer may not be finished.

Quirky characters, Southern humor, and some really good-sounding food combine to spice up this fun mystery.  Cherry, Luke, and Todd are all engaging characters, and the question of which man Cherry will choose will keep you reading.  I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this series.
