Death a Sketch (A Paint & Shine Mystery) by Cheryl Hollon

About Death a Sketch

Death a Sketch (A Paint & Shine Mystery) Cozy Mystery 3rd in Series Setting – Kentucky Kensington (July 26, 2022) Mass Market Paperback : 288 pages ISBN-10 : 149672528X ISBN-13 : 978-1496725288 Digital ASIN : B09KP3TJ8F

In eastern Kentucky, Miranda Trent runs a unique tour company called Paint & Shine, but sometimes the peaceful mountains play host to murder . . .


Miranda’s business—combining Appalachian adventure tours with art and a bit of moonshine—is the perfect place for an outdoor sporting goods company to hold an employee retreat. It’ll be a challenge, but the money they’re paying will definitely help with building her new distillery.


Miranda has lots of teamwork-fostering activities planned, from sketching classes to Southern cooking, but the executive running things prefers a more competitive spirit. In fact, after the workers are split into teams, they’re told that only the winners will keep their jobs, and tensions begin to spike. Even after a participant is found dead, the contest continues—while Miranda starts drawing her own conclusions about the ambitious attendees. Now she just has to find the proof . . .

Series: The Perished Riders MC

Kindle Price $2.99 or Kindle Unlimited



Life has a funny way of pulling you in when you least expect it. It’s been a few years since I was back at The Perished Riders MC clubhouse, and fuck, it’s damn near the same. I don’t know what I thought would happen in my time away. I left because my dad was stuck in the past, unable to move the club forward into the present day, so it shouldn’t be surprising that the hell hole hasn’t changed since I was a kid.

It’s also no surprise that now the miserable bastard is dead, there’s not much left to salvage.

But I’ve stepped up, just like my brothers wanted me to, and I’m making changes. I’m gonna run this place straight, the way it should have been ran all those years ago.

But the dead have a funny way of leaving a legacy, and it ain’t always good. Eagle’s presence lingers like a fucking bad smell, and everywhere I turn, there’s another mess he left behind.

The road is calling me, and I’m beginning to think the club ain’t worth it, but then life throws me a curveball in the form of Rylee Carter.


Do you ever wonder when your life became this? Wake, eat, sleep, repeat . . . oh, and don’t forget to throw in the odd beating. Marrying Grant Carter was not my finest moment, nor was becoming his prisoner. Slowly, he made me dependent solely on him, and now, I’m stuck here. Wake, eat, sleep, repeat.

It’s by chance that my new neighbour hears my cries calling to her from the pits of my own hell. Instead of ignoring me, she sends me a lifeline. One I grasp with both hands.

Being rescued by The Perished Riders MC was just the beginning of my journey.

Since Maverick came into my life, things aren’t so mundane. He shows me just how strong I can be, and with him by my side, suddenly, everything seems possible.

Inspiration Coffee and Wisdom Tea for a Hectic Day


Self-Help, Inspirational, Spiritual

Date Published: June 2022

Publisher: International Book Media

A Wonderful Companion for Your Hectic Life and a Modern Safety Shield in a Dangerous World.

Like our daily coffee and tea, I try to keep the two daily sayings and their reflections short and sweet. This book is designed simply to give us a quick spiritual boost as we try to run from one task to another on our “hectic day”. Although the short-term goal of this book is to help us get through “a hectic day” with joy and purpose, its long-term focus is to fine tune our characters and make us better people at home, at work, at worshipping place, in the neighborhood, and in other places. This world would be like Heaven if there is less fighting, arguing, and killing. We cannot get our cup of coffee, latte, or tea these days without worrying that a crazy lunatic would come in with a deadly weapon to gun us down like an animal or a bomb to blow us up. We certainly cannot enjoy anything in a world like that. This situation needs to be stopped and it begins with us. We need to talk and act differently than what we see on the news or witness in our world every day. When we can do that, we help change the world one person at the time and others hopefully will follow our example. This transformation will not only make our world a better place but also make us feel much better about ourselves.

The Covid-19 pandemic also has affected us all in every way – young and old, weak and strong, women and men. Many of us have lost a family member or friend to this virus, or known someone who has experienced this loss. A self-help book like this will give you the tools and daily exercises that can create the right condition for your body and spirit to restore itself with the divine help.


Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it. (Winston Churchill) (1001 Quotes, pg 13)

Inspiring Morning Mojo: We love to fly high like a kite and enjoy much success in our lives. But, great success comes when we dare to buck the trend and go against the current. Today I am willing to go against the typical ways and do something different to achieve great result.

The more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread. (Exodus 1:12) (Bible Quotations, pg 7)

Words of Encouragement: The enemies tried to oppress God’s people and hoped to exterminate them. But, they multiplied and grew stronger. Likewise, a long, hectic day might try to scare and discourage me. But, I will work harder and dream bigger with a new day.

Cover Reveal: In Chaos We Reign by Amo Jones

In Chaos We Reign, an addictive and must-read dark romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amo Jones is coming August 14th, and we have the incredible cover!

I was the trick that they could never play.
She was the greatest game of all…

There was elegance that comes from being carved from the ashes of all the darkness that surrounds you in the world. You start as dust, and you end as dust. At least that’s what I always thought. Crowned Princess Mayhem all my life became old fast, and I found myself forging my iron crown with the blood of our enemies.

To The Brothers of Kiznitch, I was nothing but a little brat that always got my way. I was the sister none of them asked for, but they’d find themselves needing. He was no different. Loving Keaton Cicero was never going to be easy. There was evil within him that would never be accepted.

They thought their over-protectiveness had kept me safe all these years, but they were wrong. Everything they thought they knew, was about to burn around them. I wasn’t someone who needed protecting…

They were.

In Chaos We Reign can be read as a stand-alone, but it is recommended to read In Silence She Screams first to better understand some story points.

In Chaos We Reign will be a live release!

Release Date: August 6

Maeve was finally free. She might be on the run, but she was not in a six-by-six cell for something she didn’t do, which was all that mattered. Small spaces and too much quiet time were never good for someone like her. Addiction was a real thing, a disease that pulled on the very fabric of her being, and she found herself once more wanting to succumb to that tantalizing desire. Unfortunately, her turn of good fortune wouldn’t last when she realized that a U.S. Marshall was hunting her, and not just any U.S. Marshall, but the best tracker they had. A Wolf. He was one of the sexiest and most frustrating men she’d ever met.
Can Maeve avoid Wolf’s capture, or will she fall harder than she’d ever imagined?

Wolf understood all too well what it meant not to fit in. He’d spent his life trying to blend two worlds, neither of which wanted him. After a devastating loss, he decided to join the army and embark on a new chapter of his life that he thought would heal old wounds. Little did he know his greatest pain was yet to come. Back home, he was now a U.S. Marshall and divided his time between apprehending fugitives by day and burying them for The Righteous by night.

When he was given the task to bring the fugitive Maeve in, he thought it was a simple ‘dead or alive’ order, one he’d done a million times. What he hadn’t bargained for was the beautiful-storm of a woman that would test him at every turn and catapult his simple world into a life and death race from an enemy neither one of them saw coming.

Will Wolf and Maeve find the calm in the storm, or will they be swept up and carried away by it?
