Growing up in a small town, Larissa Reinhart couldn’t wait to move to an exotic city far from corn fields. After moving around the US and Japan, now she loves to write about rough hewn characters that live near corn fields, particularly sassy women with a penchant for trouble. Death in Perspective is the fourth in the Cherry Tucker Mystery Series from Henery Press, following Hijack in Abstract (#3), Still Life in Brunswick Stew (#2) and Portrait of a Dead Guy (#1), a 2012 Daphne du Maurier finalist. Quick Sketch, a Cherry Tucker prequel to Portrait, is in the mystery anthology The Heartache Motel. She lives near Atlanta with her minions and Cairn Terrier, Biscuit.
Larissa Reinhart has done it again. What starts as a fairly simple, lucrative job for Cherry Tucker is anything but that. Before she knows what's happening, she's quickly involved in mystery, mayhem and death. Despite warnings, Cherry keeps going in her quest for answers and justice. The twists and turns kept me reading long into the night. The end made me ready for number six, but also paid homage to one of the greatest writers of all time, Charles Dickens. Dickens wrote his novels in sections to encourage the reader to want more, and Reinhart does that here. The cliffhanger hooked me and made me hope number six is close to being finished. Yes, Reinhart's books are THAT good!
I love this book and the entire series. This is number 4 in the Cherry Tucker adventures/mystery. Cherry is sassy and smart although she can't keep her nose out of helping people who don't always want her help and once in a while someone who does want her help like in this book. This time she is hired to look into some shady business and all hell breaks loose. It's fun to watch her unravel the clues and deal with her on and off again romance with the hunky cop Luke and all her wacky and mostly caring friends. This book and series made me laugh out loud at times and just great all the way around with this cozy mystery. Already can't wait for book #5! Give it a try but I would start with Portrait of a Deadguy the first in this series and then continue on to books 2, 3 and then this one which is 4. Although you could read this one first and then start with number one as it won't really hurt the story line of all the books. Each one is a different mystery and you get some back ground on the characters in each book. Happy reading and enjoy which ever book you start with. You'll love them like I do. The author is one of my favs!
Larissa Reinhart out did herself with Death in Perspective. She takes her adult readers on a wild and crazy trip back to high school. The setting, the tone, the voices of the students, school staff, parents and teachers are all spot on. I should know, since I'm a teacher ;) But, don't let the school setting fool you into thinking that this is a kid's book. Oh, no, this is a classic poisoned pen murder mystery, with a 21st century, Cherry Tucker twist!!! Reinhart kept me guessing till the very end as to whom the murderer(s) might be. I suspected everyone. I suspected no one; buying into the police theory that the deaths were, in fact, suicide. There are as many twists and turns to this devious tale as there are hallways and secrets in the posh high school where Cherry is designing play sets. And yet, Cherry Tucker will continue to make you laugh and smile as you read about her life.
On the whole this is an enjoyable series. The thing that kept me from giving it a higher rating has to do with the relationship between Cherry and Luke. They both allow their family and the community to dictate whether or not they can even have a relatiobship and the fued between their families supposedly plays a major role in preventing their relationship from being public. They both are adults and should be capable of telling people to butt out. I like a bit of romance in my reading but the constant relationship drama detracts from the rest of the story. Relationship drama in many books seems to be used as a plotline hook to add some kind of extra suspense to the story but in my opinion often ends up being more of a distraction and is ultimately irritating. A healthy relationship without all the angst and turmoil would be refreshing.
Death in Perspective is the fourth installment in the Cherry Tucker series. And this time, Cherry has to deal with her biggest challenge yet...teenagers. Taking a job at a private school, Cherry plans on designing sets for Romeo and Juliet. What she didn't expect was having to hunt down a mystery texter who's spreading vicious rumors. And when the principal's secretary supposedly commits suicide, Cherry suspects murder. With the help of Luke Harper, sheriff's deputy and Cherry's real life Romeo, she unravels the clues and turns the spotlight on the evil doer.
As always, Larissa Reinhart delivers humor along with her unique, Southern characters. Full of charm and wit, this mystery delivers plenty of laughs and a surprise ending. Loved it.
Another great turnout by Larissa Reinhart. Her characters are so well developed and the plots thought out in a precise unpredictable way. Just when I think I have figured out "whodunit," there's a twist that keeps me glued to the book. There's always good background activities going on to keep you entertained and the "who will she pick" between Todd and Luke is a great plot. Looking forward to the next installment.
