In rural Kentucky, business is booming for Miranda Trent’s unique Appalachian adventure tour company, Paint & Shine. But sometimes murder lurks amid the peaceful mountains, scenic views, and moonshine
Miranda’s business—combining Appalachian adventure tours with art and a bit of moonshineis 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 continueswhile Miranda starts drawing her own conclusions about the ambitious attendees. Now she just has to find the proof . . .
