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' . . .
