Still Life in Brunswick Stew by Larissa Reinhart
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is the second book in a series of mysteries that take place in a small town in rural Georgia. The author is a strong writer and the editing was very clean.
I could easily visualize the town and surrounding countryside as described by the author. The secondary characters were varied, interesting and well developed. Even though there are a lot of characters the author wrote in a manner that made it easy to keep track of them and their actions.
In the first book of this series the main character and heroine, Cherry, was an endearing, inquisitive character. Unfortunately, several chapters into this book she became rather narcissistic and abrasive. One of the joys of reading these types of series is to see the characters grow and develop. In this book I felt as though Cherry had devolved rather than evolved.
Overall, this is a fun to read mystery novel. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
