Still Life in Brunswick Stew by Larissa Reinhart

“I don’t see how this helps the Parkers,” said Luke. “You’re going to get them all roiled up about nothing.”

“That’s exactly why they want my help. Y’all think her death is just an accident. The Parkers want to make sure whoever made the bad food gets punished.”

“Why would they ask you for help?” Sid said. “You’re an artist, not a cop.”

“Cherry’s good at figuring stuff out,” said Todd. “She uses that creative thinking. And she’ll talk to anyone. Even teenage boys with switchblades in their pocket.”

“Hunter had a switchblade?” I said.

“Switchblade?” Luke’s eyebrows hit his scalp and fell to a glower.

“I’d say her thinking is more crazy than creative,” said Cody. “The Parkers are like us and probably don’t trust cops.”

“The man you call uncle is sheriff,” said Luke.

“He don’t always trust cops neither.” Cody pushed his cap up with his beer bottle. “Sometimes you got to look into stuff yourself. I’m actually working on some investigating myself.”

“What are you investigating?” I glanced at Casey to see if she knew, but she shrugged.

“Something I don’t want to talk about just yet,” said Cody.

I snorted. Cody’s investigations ran to pistons, carburetors, and dual exhaust. He likely found another muscle car to overhaul.

“Not letting trained officials doing their job?” Luke set his stormy gray eyes on me. “Do you hear how ridiculous that sounds?”

“We were raised to be self-sufficient.”

“That’s a joke. Cody and Casey still live with your Grandpa. None of you have full time jobs. How is that self-sufficient?”

With coordination not better seen by the Olympic synchronized swimming team, the Tucker crew delivered Luke our best stone-cold glare worthy of any redneck gold medal competition.

Luke is trying to get Cherry to leave the investigation of her friend Eloise's death to the cops.  Even though at first no one believed Cherry or Eloise's family, that it wasn't due to Eloise's Crohn's disease.
