Review – 

Cherry Tucker is trying to stay out of trouble while teaching art classes at the Halo House. On occasion, she gets wrapped up in the murder mystery which puts her at odds with the sheriff’s department deputy Luke. This book is no different when resident sweet tea tycoon Belva Brakemen asks Cherry to look into the possible murder of her daughter. With the chance to help her brother at stake Cherry takes the job. She is thrown into a series of murders. Will she be able to figure it out before anyone else gets hurt?

In an Oyster Shell – A fine mystery that will keep you guessing.

The Pearls – The mystery was fun and kept you on your toes. There was not just one murder but three murders. It was fun to follow Cherry on the journey of figuring out what was going on. The conclusion was a surprise, which as a reader I always welcome.

The setting was fun. The retirement home Halo house. You never know what those retirees will be up to. They definitely give Cherry a run for her money. The description of the place is nice and creative. It sounds like a retiree’s dream place.

The romance was cute and also kept you on the edge of your seat. Being from two families that are in a feud it makes for an interesting relationship. It was entertaining to read Cherry get through the conflict her romance caused.

The Sand – It wasn’t all that humorous, and the reviews said it would be. There were a lot of intended one line zingers that I just didn’t understand.

3.5 Pearls!
