Review; Still Knife Painting (A Paint and Shine Mystery #1) by Cheryl Hollon

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cosy mystery novel Still Knife Painting (A Paint and Shine Mystery #1) by Cheryl Hollon through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Miranda Trent has set up a sweet life in a scenic corner of Appalachia--until she stumbles across the trail of a killer . . .

After inheriting her uncle's Red River Gorge homestead in Eastern Kentucky--smack dab in the middle of the Daniel Boone National Forest--Miranda comes up with a perfect business plan for summer tourists: pairing outdoor painting classes with sips of local moonshine, followed by a mouthwatering sampler of the best in southern cooking.

To Miranda's delight, Paint & Shine is a total success--until someone kills the cook. As the town's outsider, suspicion naturally falls on Miranda. Murdering the best biscuit baker of Red River Gorge is a high crime in these parts. Miranda will have to prove her innocence before she's moved from farmhouse to jail cell faster than she can say "white lightning" . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
Still Knife Painting was a fun start of a new series. The plot was well done and engaging, in addition to a few threads that surely will be continued in future books. The characters were complex and interesting, which is a good thing, so they don't seem like one-dimensional cookie-cutter characters. I also liked the concept of painting, food and moonshine.
