New Cover for Cherry Tucker #5 THE BODY IN THE LANDSCAPE

If you missed the cover reveal on Dru's Book Musing, you can see it now.
Releasing December 15th, THE BODY IN THE LANDSCAPE, is Cherry Tucker's fifth full-length mystery set at Big Rack Lodge in Georgia. 

Cherry's been asked by Max Avtaikin to paint the winning portrait in a Hogzilla hunt. It seems like a paid vacation from trouble at home. Back in Halo, Georgia, a Hatfield-McCoy-style standoff builds, forcing Luke and Cherry to keep their relationship secret. She’s ready for a weekend away, hobnobbing with the rich and famous of hunting.

As the weather turns the Georgia sunshine to bleak December rain, Cherry’s R&R goes MIA when she finds the body of a local man. While the police believe the local drunk took an accidental spill, Cherry has her doubts, particularly when a series of malicious pranks are targeted at the rifle toting contestants and she’s warned off investigating. With loyal companions at her side — sort-of-ex-husband Todd and a championship bayer named Buckshot— Cherry tracks suspects through a forest full of pitfalls and perils. And all the while, a killer’s stalking the hunt party with Cherry and the contestants in their crosshairs.

Hunting may be a part of country life, but these hunters aren't like Cherry's neighbors. Y'all know that Cherry and rich and famous just don't mix well. Kind of like vinegar and honey. Lucky for Cherry, she's got a new four-legged friend that appreciates her quest for justice and creative thinking. 

And in more exciting news, DEATH IN PERSPECTIVE, Cherry's fourth mystery was the finalist for the 2015 Georgia Author of the Year Best Mystery. First place went to David Darracott for WASTED. Congrats to David! We're happy for the second place finish to such a wonderful Georgia author. Thank you to the Georgia Writers Association for hosting the awards.
