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 . . .

Honeysuckle Fizz

The only adult beverage I like more than a finely distilled moonshine, my favorite libation is Prosecco.

This fizzy cocktail combines them into a nose-tickling delight. Enjoy.


Cocktail shaker
2 champagne flutes
Jigger or measuring cup
Citrus hand juicer
Cocktail stirrer


2 limes
1⁄4 oz. simple sugar
1⁄4 cup clear moonshine
Rosemary stalks (optional)

Fill shaker with ice.

Squeeze juice from limes into shaker.

Add simple sugar and moonshine to shaker.

Shake thoroughly and pour into flutes.

Top up flutes with prosecco, then gently stir.

Garnish with stalk of rosemary (optional).

Serves two.
