A Cherry Tucker Mystery #5

THE BODY IN THE LANDSCAPE front

When Cherry Tucker’s invited to paint the winning portrait for Big Rack Lodge’s Hogzilla hunt contest, it seems like a paid vacation. 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.

But as the Georgia sunshine turns to bleak December rain, Cherry’s R&R goes MIA when she finds a body. While the police believe the town 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 of pitfalls and perils. And all the while, a killer’s stalking the hunt party with Cherry and the contestants in their crosshairs.

Praise for The Body in the Landscape:

“Cherry Tucker is a strong, sassy, Southern sleuth who keeps you on the edge of your seat. She’s back in action in The Body in the Landscape with witty banter, Southern charm, plenty of suspects, and dead bodies—you will not be disappointed!” – Tonya Kappes, USA Today Bestselling Author

“This series continues to entertain me with the tenacity that is Cherry Tucker… ingenuity, grit, and vulnerability and one who has a heart of gold and a dazzling sense of being. This is one of my favorite books in the series and I can’t wait to see where we go next.” – Dru Ann Love, Anthony Award Finalist for Dru’s Book Musings

“Anyone who likes humorous mysteries will also enjoy local author Larissa Reinhart, who captures small town Georgia in the laugh-out-loud escapades of struggling artist Cherry Tucker.” – Fayette Woman Magazine

“Full of Southern humor and down home charm.” – Librarian at RSU 18 Williams Library

“Well-written southern cozy, with a young artist stumbling onto a mystery while painting a landscape in rural Georgia. Smart and funny.” – Librarian at Jefferson-Madison Regional Library System

“My appreciation for Cherry just continues to grow. […] A rich character, with many layers of wisdom, vulnerability and devotion. She is so spunky, and not 'normal' in the very best way. I will be anxiously awaiting another Cherry Tucker Mystery!” – Lyn Faulkner, NetGalley Reviewer

Reinhart has once again managed to spin a humorous who-dun-it sure to please.

Reinhart provides a fast paced mystery and an interesting and quirky detective told in a breezy friendly voice that I couldn’t help but be drawn into.

The scenes describing getting ready for the hunt, struck many cords with me…(I) had no problem being able to completely picture the scene, right down to the smells of the fires burning on a cold rainy night.
~Musings and Ramblings


One of my favorite things about Ms. Reinhart’s Cherry Tucker series is the examination of differences and clashes between the economic and societal classes…I hope she keeps bringing her brand of social commentary to cozies for a long time to come.

I love this series Cherry is just full of charm and wit.
