Cover Reveal ~ The Body in the Landscape by Larissa Reinhart

The Body in the Landscape

The Body in the Landscape by Larissa Reinhart
Series: Cherry Tucker #5
Release Date: December 15, 2015

In The Body in the Landscape, Cherry Tucker’s escaping problems in Halo with a trip to the Big Rack hunting lodge to paint the winning “kill portrait” for a Hogzilla hunt contest. Between an accidental death and a serious of malicious pranks, Cherry fears the hunting party may be the prey for a vengeful stalker.

When Cherry Tucker’s invited to paint the “kill portrait” for the winner of Big Rack Lodge’s Hogzilla hunt, it seems like a paid vacation. Back home in Halo, a Hatfield-McCoy-style standoff builds between Luke and Cherry’s families. She’s ready for a weekend away, hobnobbing with rich and famous hunters, where she can forget her troubles and nobody knows her name.

As Georgia sunshine turns to bleak December rain, Cherry’s R&R goes MIA when she finds a body in the woods. While the police believe the local drunk took an accidental spill, Cherry has her doubts, particularly when a series of malicious pranks are targeted at the rifle toting contestants. With loyal companions at her side — sort-of-ex-husband Todd and a championship bayer named Buckshot — Cherry tracks suspects through a forest full of pitfalls and perils. And all the while, a killer’s stalking the hunt party with a bead on Cherry.

    Hello Dru and Larissa. The dog on the front of The Body in the Landscape is so adorable! He alone intisses me to read the the new adventure in this exciting series. He looks like the basset hound named Zola that my PopPop had when we were growing up! Needless to say—- Thanks for writing this cozy mystery Larissa, Maureen Yin

    • Thank you Maureen! I love that dog. My grandpa raised beagles, so it reminds me of him, too. Zola is a great name for a dog! I hope you enjoy Cherry’s adventures! She’s a lot of fun to write.
