Still Knife Painting (A Paint & Shine Mystery)
by Cheryl Hollon
Ms. Hollen has a beautiful way of relating the past and wrapping it into a present-day mystery. I enjoyed Still Knife Painting and can’t wait for the next book in the series to see what Miranda is up too.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
Still Knife Painting is an engaging new Southern cozy mystery with rampant rumors, plein air painting, cultural cuisine, a killer knife, a precious puppy, and merry moonshine.
~The Avid Reader
The mystery is good . . . The ending is impressive.
~The Book Decoder
I totally adored the premise of Still Knife Painting and Cheryl Hollon‘s character development was excellent.
~Brianne’s Book Reviews
This is a new series and I found it to be intriguing. Set in Kentucky near the Daniel Boone National Park, I could imagine the hikes they took to Lover’s Leap, the small town with nosy citizens, properties set apart where cell service was sparse, and fascinating relationships between the various characters.
It’s an intriguing and different premise for a cozy mystery . . . the author kept me guessing until the end which is always a fun thing.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author creates a great setting in Eastern Kentucky and I could picture in my mind’s eye the beauty of the area.
Still Knife Painting is an engaging start to a new series by Cheryl Hollon! . . . Well-written and entertaining, this read is a fun way to spend a weekend 🙂
~Reading is My SuperPower
What a great start to a new series by one of my favorite cozy authors! . . . A must read for cozy fans. I totally loved it . . .
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
Still Knife Painting was a charming start to a brand new series … The murder mystery was very well-written and I loved how it kept me guessing.

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” . . .
