      Death in Perspective is the fourth Cherry Tucker mystery and has left me rather upset . . . that I haven't read any of Larissa Reinhart's work before.

Trouble is, she's a Tucker, part of the Ballard c [...]

      I love this book — #4 in the Cherry Tucker Mystery series. The main character of Death in Perspective, Cherry Tucker, has a great sense of humor, as do many of her friends, family members, and neighbors. I was laughing out loud at times while I read it. The pacing is just right — neither too slow, nor too fast. I had a hard time putting Death in Perspective down. In fact, I stayed up late to finish it; it's that good!Cherry and the other characters seem realistic, and are placed in realistic [...]

      I have been a huge fan of the Cherry Tucker Mystery series since I reviewed the first book, Portrait of a Dead Guy. Cherry reminds me greatly of the kinds of girls that I grew up with - sassy, stubborn and southern. Since this is the 4th full length novel, I had high expectations when I saw it was available on Netgalley. Thank goodness, Larissa Reinhart didn't let me down.The story picks up shortly after the ending of book 3, Hijack in Abstract. Cherry and her on again, off again boyfriend Luke [...]

      This is the fourth book in the Cherry Tucker Mysteries and I loved it. I have not read any of the previous books, but I do not feel that deterred from my following the story or enjoying it any less. However, I got so interested in the characters that I promptly book the other books to find out more about Cherry's world. Larissa Reinhart does a wonderful job of story building and makes you feel like you are right there with the characters experiencing things as they do. This is the talent of a ma [...]

      Death in Perspective is the first book that I have read in Reinhart's Cherry Tucker series, and it definitely won't be the last. Reinhart's Cherry Tucker is a great leading character, and I thought that she was well developed through the book. Since I started with book four, I was immediately thrust into the middle of some crazy family drama as Cherry's love life proved to be very complicated however Reinhart made it very easy to care about Cherry. The book's mystery is well done, and I liked ho [...]

      It's back to school for Cherry Tucker in this fourth mystery in the series! But Cherry has no plans to hit the books, quite the contrary. She's there to design the sets for the drama department's upcoming production of Romeo and Juliet and find the "Phantom Texter," a social media bully whose text messages drove at least one school staffer to suicide. Along with the help of sexy Deputy Luke Harper, Cherry must find the terrible texter before he decides it's her final act. You'll get a real kick [...]

      Such a FUN book! This is the fourth book in the Cherry Tucker Mystery series. I've not read the previous three books but I didn't feel like I'd been left behind, a really great thing for series books. I also didn't feel like there was too much back story given, something else I appreciated.Cherry Tucker, artist, is hired by the drama teacher at Peerless Day Academy to help with the scenery for his upcoming theater production. It doesn't take too long for him to tell her that he knows she can als [...]

    • Ricki says:

      Death in Perspective is the fourth in the Cherry Tucker Mystery series and is every bit as enjoyable as the others (yes, I have read them all). The "characters" at the private school for the arts are unique but appear to be dealing with the latest problem of cyberbullying through texts and the school's own social media. A student suicided the previous year and now the principal's secretary? Not likely. But Cherry is determined to find the texter or murderer.Then there's the rivalry between the m [...]

      Cherry is back and up to her old tricks. This time we also get to see her ex, still hanging around and living in her house. We find ourselves among Russian mobsters and getting way too involved in town politics. Promiscuous Maranda Pringle is dead, even before we get started Cherry had an interview with her and no one had bothered to tell her the meeting was cancelled. Cherry had been contacted by Mr. Tinsley the art teacher at Peerless Day Academy, offering her a job painting back drops for the [...]

    • Priscilla says:

      Larissa Reinhart out did herself with Death in Perspective. She takes her adult readers on a wild and crazy trip back to high school. The setting, the tone, the voices of the students, school staff, parents and teachers are all spot on. I should know, since I'm a teacher ;) But, don't let the school setting fool you into thinking that this is a kid's book. Oh, no, this is a classic poisoned pen murder mystery, with a 21st century, Cherry Tucker twist!!! Reinhart kept me guessing till the very en [...]

    • Barbara Thompson says:

      Death In Perspective is a terrific mystery. The storyline is intriguing, fascinating and humorous. Each character has its unique personality, but the main character, Cherry Tucker, had an extraordinary personality, plus her nosy can-do attitude. It's a well-written novel that held my attention from the beginning and kept my interest with the twists and turns, surprises and hilarious moments. This is the first book I've read by Larissa Reinhart and it will not be my last. I'm looking forward to r [...]

      Been a while since I've read a book with a "white trash" heroine. Cherry is a frank talking "real" type of character but she's not really trashy. I enjoyed the mystery and how Cherry's personal life sort of mirrors the play the local school is putting on, Romeo and Juliet. I can see the whole right side of the tracks (rich) guy, wrong side of the tracks (poor) gal and being worried about what others think to get on my nerves if it was prominent in all the other books in the series though. It get [...]
