PORTRAIT OF A DEAD GUY:
I liked Still Life in Brunswick Stew. I always like stories about small towns. I love how everyone knows everyone. Cherry and her friend, Eloise have a booth at the Brunswick Stew cook-off. Eloise had gotten some tickets for free stew and ate 6 bowls of it. She ends up getting really sick – actually a number of people do only Eloise dies. Everyone thinks it was food poisoning since a good number of town people had gotten sick and Eloise has other health issues. Cherry or Eloise family do not believe it ~ so Cherry decides to investigate on her own. Who could have wanted to kill Eloise? Or was it meant for someone else?
