July 7 – My Reading Journeys – REVIEW
About the book
Appalachian artist and local guide Miranda Trent opens a new murder investigation after her Paint & Shine tour group discovers the remains of a missing hiker along an ancient trail . . .
For her latest excursion, Miranda is thrilled to take a close-knit group of rock climbers, the Risky Business Adventurers, up the challenging Battleship Rock Trail to paint and sample moonshine. But the outing is cut short when they discover a skeleton near the trailhead. Even more startling, the bones belong to Howard Cable, Miranda’s cousin…and a former classmate of the Risky Business group.
The sheriff chalks it up to a hiking accident, but Miranda isn’t convinced that Howard, an experienced woodsman, died within sight of a well-marked trail. So, with the help of Ranger Austin Morgan, Miranda sets out on her own investigation and discovers that the Risky Business group is keeping plenty of secrets. But is one of them hiding the truth about Howard’s death?

~The Avid Reader
And I thought . . . What a fun read. I enjoyed reading this one. I thought it was clever how the author wove an interesting Cozy Mystery around Appalachia and Moonshine.
This series is full of great characters. And lots of good food talk and fun recipes. A few including Shine.
There are plenty of suspects giving Miranda and Austin (sleuthing helper) a run for their money to solve the mystery.
The small town setting is Cozy and welcoming.
If you enjoy a good cozy check out this 2 book series.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
