"Reinhart manages to braid a complicated plot into a tight and funny tale. The reader grows to love Cherry and her quirky worldview, her sometimes misguided judgment, and the eccentric characters that populate the country of Halo, Georgia. Cozy fans will love this latest Cherry Tucker mystery." - Mary Marks, New York Journal of Books"In HIJACK IN ABSTRACT, Cherry Tucker is back--tart-tongued and full of sass. With her paint-stained fingers in every pie, she's in for a truckload of trouble." -- J.J. Murphy, Author of the Algonquin Round Table Mysteries"Bless her heart. Artist Cherry Tucker just can't help chasing after justice, even when it lands her up to her eyeballs in Russian gangsters, sexy exes, and treacherous truckers. A rambunctious mystery as Southern as chess pie and every bit as delectable."- Jane Sevier, Author of the Psychic Socialite 1930s Memphis Mysteries"With a well-plotted storyline, witty banter, a warm and friendly feel and a great supporting cast that surrounds Cherry, this was very enjoyable and I am eager to read the next book in this charmingly appealing series." - Dru Ann Love, Dru's Book Musings"I love this series! Cheeky, clever, and compelling--keeps me reading way too late. This book has one of the most original--and fun--love triangles you'll ever come across." - Kaye George, Agatha Award-Nominated Author of the Imogene Duckworthy Mysteries"Cherry Tucker's got an artists' palette of problems, but she handles them better than da Vinci on a deadline. Bust out your gesso and get primed for humor, hijackings, and a handful of hunks!" -- Diane Vallere, Author of the Style & Error and Mad for Mod Mystery Series"Larissa Reinhart has a unique knack of putting her lead character, Cherry Tucker, through a series of obstacles, increasing the pressure until I'm on the edge of my seat. I find myself not only rooting for this sassy heroine to solve the mystery, but to figure out her deliciously complicated personal life. Cherry Tucker mysteries just keep getting better and better. I can't wait for the next installment!" -- Terri L. Austin, author of the Rose Strickland Mystery Series"The fast-paced plot careens through small-town politics and deadly rivalries, with zany side trips through art-world shenanigans and romantic hijinx. Like front-porch lemonade, Reinhart's cast of characters offer a perfect balance of tart and sweet." - Sophie Littlefield, Bestselling Author of A Bad Day for Sorry
