Description:


At Halo House, Cherry Tucker finds the tea deadly sweet…


With a new art teaching gig at Halo House—Halo, Georgia’s posh independent living home—and Halo society scrutinizing her family and her love life, Cherry Tucker needs to stay out of trouble. However, her sleuthing skills are sought out by Halo House’s most famous resident: Belvia Brakeman, the ninety-year-old, blind CEO and founder of Meemaw’s Tea. Belvia confides in Cherry that the family tea empire is in jeopardy. The CEO suspects her daughter, the COO, has been murdered and she might be next. Her offer is hard to refuse, but will have Cherry treading on Forks County Sheriff toes, namely her personal Deputy Heartache, Luke Harper.

Amid her town troubles, can Cherry put her reputation, romance, and life on the line for the final request of a sweet tea tycoon? While she juggles senior citizen shenanigans, small-town politics, and corporate family scandals, Cherry finds the sweet tea business cutthroat in more ways than one.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Cherry Tucker who as anyone whose read the Cherry Tucker Mysteries knows has crazy things happen all the time.  This time Cherry gets tasked with witnessing a will.  The following day when she arrives at Halo House she gets called back to Belvia Braeman who wants Cherry's non-painting skills. A lot of weird things are going on Belvia's daughter died but of course Belvia thinks there is something more to it.  Who killed Belvia's daughter and is the killer on a murder spree?  Then of course there is the really crazy old timers at Halo House who definitely need Halo's to keep them more innocent then they appear!

I love Cherry Tucker, her friends and family they are so passionate and caring well unless you are a Branson.  Of course in Cherry's case that is difficult as she is dating Deputy Luke Harper a step-Branson.  Which only adds to the situation in this book, between solving the mystery and trying to save her brother Cody who made a dumb mistake and sits in jail for it.  Can Cherry save her little brother or are the Branson going to win?  I mean seriously some of this stuff is so crazy but a good crazy that always drags me back to Cherry's world to see what is going on now!  Can't wait to see what is next for Cherry, and her friends and family!
