In Halo, Georgia, folks know Cherry Tucker as big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than buckshot rips from a ten gauge - but commissions are scarce. So when the well-heeled Branson family wants to memorialize their murdered son in a coffin portrait, Cherry scrambles to win their patronage from her small town rival. As the clock ticks toward the deadline, Cherry faces more trouble than just a controversial subject. Between ex-boyfriends, her flaky family, an illegal gambling ring, and outwitting a killer on a spree, Cherry finds herself painted into a corner she'll be lucky to survive.

Audio the way to go here!
I'm not from the South, but Erin Clark's Georgia accent brought the book alive for me; her Russian one was great, too! Story veered a bit into chick-lit territory for me at times, but overall I was busy getting into Cherry's sense of humor. I had wanted to know more about she and her siblings live with the grandfather, but enough was alluded to that I figure it can come out over time in future stories.

Story made for a decent light and fluffy read but the narration was terrible. Pauses too long, pace too slow, didn't flow naturally the way a person would talk. Also too nasal, even for a good southern accent. I put it on 2X just to get through the book more quickly and found that the faster pace actually made the narration better. The narration made it difficult to gauge the quality of the story, but it had some scenes that I think would have been funny had they been read correctly, and it held my interest enough to make me want to check out the next one -- in print.
