Death in Perspective by Larissa Reinhart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Death In Perspective is the fourth book in the Cherry Tucker humorous mystery series. It is very well written and professionally edited.
Cherry is a struggling fine artist that tends to nose her way into police investigations much to the dismay of her Sheriff uncle and Deputy Harper, her sometimes lover. In this book Cherry is working at the theater department of an exclusive private high school and employees of the school are committing suicide in record numbers. Cherry, being nosey as she is wont to do, begins investigating the deaths and the threatening text messages being sent to the remaining staff.
Several men are interested in Cherry: her roommate and ex husband , Todd, her on again off again lover and now friend Deputy Luke Harper, and the mysterious Eastern European, Max. This is where the story bogged down for me, because these relationships seem so static and the characters so stuck in their cubby holes.
I found Death in Perspective to be a funny and interesting read. I don't recommend it as a stand alone; the series is best read in order. There is no HEA or HFN, the ending was very close to being a cliffhanger.
