With its colorful characters, charming Southern setting, and well-plotted mystery, the Paint & Shine series is the perfect blend of all things cozy. -Ellery Adams, NYT and USA Today best-selling author Using a palette of clever plot twists and intriguing characters, Cheryl Hollon creates a richly drawn world that's both bucolic and dangerous in Still Knife Painting. Readers will take a shine to this addictive new series! -Agatha Award-winning author Ellen Byron Many of the elements of Still Knife Painting are familiar cozy tropes-there's an attractive park ranger, suspicious locals and an entrepreneuer's money worries-but in Hollon's capable hands they all seem fresh. Part of the reason is the originality of Miranda's business, but it's her artistic nature that really shines...This book is well paced, anchored by an excellent central character, and infused with a keen sense of place. Veteran scribe Hollon makes it all look easy. Rocking in Miranda's chair on the porch, sitting under a quilt and taking in the view sounds like a plan to me. Pass that moonshine. -Mystery Scene
