"Reinhart's country-fried mystery is as much fun as a ride on the Tilt-a-Whirl at a state fair. Readers who like a little small-town charm with their mysteries will enjoy Reinhart's series." --Denise Swanson, New York Times bestselling author of the Scumble River and Devereaux's Dime Store mysteries
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.
