With a classical series sold and a portrait commissioned, Cherry Tucker’s art career is in Georgia overdrive. But when the sheriff asks Cherry to draw a composite sketch of a hijacker, her life takes a hairpin as the composite leads to a related murder, her local card-sharking buddy Max Avtaikin becomes bear bait and her nemesis labels the classical series “pervert art.” Cherry’s jamming gears between trailer parks, Atlanta mansions, and trucker bars searching for the hijacker who left a widow and orphan destitute. While she seeks to help the misfortunate and save her local reputation, Cherry’s hammer down attitude has her facing the headlights of an oncoming killer.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I’ll start this off by saying I can’t wait to read the other books in this series. I’ve hit the jackpot in books full of cooky characters lately, and this one certainly didn’t disappoint. The author does a great job at holding your attention to the story the whole time. There are numerous twists and turns and laughs along the way. If you’re in the mood to laugh out loud and are in the need for a new series, check out this 3.5 star book, xo!
