Cherry Tucker is an artist in a small town having a hard time making a living. She is small. The center of a lot of gossip that she does not help at all with her actions. When she hears that the Branson's family wants a portrait of their son for the funeral service, She heads right over to get the job. They are planning to use a member of their own family do the art. Cherry convinces them to give her a chance. She is not to fond of the murdered guy.
That night she decides in the middle of the night to go to the funeral home and start the portrait. She is by herself having let herself in with a key. While she is getting ideas of how she wants to do the picture of Dustin. She is attacked and knocked on the head. The casket is off balance and her coke is spilled all over. Her paint supplies are ruined.
The Sheriff their family friend Uncle Will threatens to arrest her. More rumors spread around the town about her robbing the corpse. The funeral home is not pressing charges.
Dustin's stepbrother Luke just got out of the service and back home, but not to stay. He used to be her boyfriend and she is still mad at him and finds him still hot.
Cherry got married in Las Vegas to Todd who won the trip to play poker. He tells one version of what happened their and Cherry is not telling all the details about it. Everyone is talking about what they did do. Todd is also the drummer in a band and plays the dumb blond who is really good at poker.
Cherry wants to get the Portrait and have the family buy the painting. She is also trying to figure out who attacked her and is robbing everywhere Dustin might have hid something. Everyone tells her to stop asking questions about what Dustin was up too. Also to stop working on the portrait.
Their are some funny scenes especially the comedy of errors at the funeral. I like Cherry and her family. This is small southern town with lots of interesting characters. I would like to see what Cherry gets into next time.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

Starving portrait artist Cherry Tucker matches wits with the dangerous bad boy, her dysfunctional family, a goat named Tater, and the quirky denizens of Halo, Georgia. Commissioned to paint a portrait of the late Dustin Branson, Cherry finds herself embroiled in the investigation of his death.
Ms. Reinhart's humorous writing style and her command of the local vernacular transports the reader to a small southern town where gossip runs thicker than kudzu. Who doesn't love an intrepid, wise-cracking heroine with a big heart and a murder to solve?
I'm looking forward to Cherry Tucker's next adventure.
I loved Reinhart's quirky characters and Cherry's relationship with her eccentric family. Add a high school rival, a sexy ex, and a hostile goat, and this humorous mystery kept me up late turning the pages. I can't wait for more Cherry Tucker.
