"Reinhart is a truly talented author and this book was one of the best cozy mysteries we reviewed this year...We highly recommend this book to all lovers of mystery books." - Mystery Tribune"An entertaining mystery full of quirky characters and solid plotting...Highly recommended for anyone who likes their mysteries strong and their mint juleps stronger!" - Jennie Bentley, New York Times Bestselling Author of Flipped Out"The tone of this marvelously cracked book is not unlike Sophie Littlefield's brilliant A Bad Day for Sorry, as author Reinhart dishes out shovelfuls of ribald humor and mayhem. It takes a rare talent to successfully portray a beer-and-hormone-addled artist as a sympathetic and worthy heroine, but Reinhart pulls it off with tongue-in-cheek panache." - Mystery Scene Magazine"Don't miss Portrait of a Dead Guy by Larissa Reinhart! Portrait is pure enjoyment, a laugh out loud mystery with some Southern romance thrown in. Five stars." -- Lynn Farris, National Mystery Review Examiner at Examiner.com"Laugh-out-loud funny and as Southern as sweet tea and cheese grits, Larissa Reinhart's masterfully crafted whodunit, Portrait of a Dead Guy, provides high-octane action with quirky, down-home characters and a trouble-magnet heroine who'll steal readers' hearts." - Debby Giusti, Author of The Captain's Mission and The Colonel's Daughter"A sweet, southern stroke of brilliance...Action, humor, mystery and a dash of romance all packed into one quirky creation. Trust me when I tell you--don't miss this one." -- The Book Boost"Reinhart's debut sparkles with wit. A fun, fast-paced read and a rollicking start to her Cherry Tucker Mystery Series. If you like your stories southern-fried with a side of romance, this book's for you!" -- Leslie Tentler, Author of Midnight Caller
