Tonya Kappes had me laughing from the opening pages of Southern Fried, when Kenni Lowry is shushing her ghost.
Kenni is the Sheriff of the small of Cottonwood and the ghost is her Grandfather. It was no surprise that she carried a gun, but there were those who frowned on her being the Sheriff.
Even though Cottonwood is a small town, the characters are far from being small.
The story contains funny quotes and unique characters that will have you smiling and laughing, and shaking your head.
“It’s hotter than a prostitute’s doorknob on pay day in here.”
Murder, the supernatural and humor are the norm in a Tonya Kappes novel.
There are plenty of suspects to keep me guessing, with some romance on the side and a lovable hound dog that, even though he’s not a guard dog, acts like one.
The small town of Cottonwood is like all small towns. Even with all the personality conflicts and disagreements, the people come together in the end.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Southern Fried by Tonya Kappes.
In the South, it’s better when the food is fried and the secrets kept buried…
After the dead body of a beloved Cottonwood resident is found tangled up in an electric fence, Sheriff Kenni Lowry has a hunch that somethin’ ain’t right. Her investigation heats up with a fierce cook-off competition, a euchre game where the intel is sweeter than the brownies, and a decades old family recipe that may just be the proof in the pudding.
The icing on the cake: Kenni is fighting an attraction to her recently sworn-in deputy sheriff, and election season is hot on her tail. When the killer comes after who she holds most dear, even her poppa’s ghostly guidance might not be enough to keep her and her own out of the frying pan.
