I like everything about this series – the conversational writing style, the quirky characters, the dialogue, the pace of small town life, and that the paranormal angle is plausible – nobody sparkles or has weird superpowers. Poppa just loves Kenni and Cottonwood fiercely, and his mission is to keep them safe. He and Kenni used to bounce ideas about cases off of each other when he was alive, and that tradition continues now. I like that Kenni’s mom is shown to be less than perfect in this book, and that the relationship between Kenni and Finn is progressing. They’re both being cautious, and I think that’s sweet. I am interested to see how Kenni will let Finn in on the secret about Poppa and what that will do to Kenni and Finn’s relationship.
If you are looking for a fun, entertaining read with a nice balance of day-to-day living and mystery-solving and romance, interesting characters, and a great setting, give this series a go. I still recommend the books be read in order, because for me it enhances the sensation of catching up with old friends, but you could start with this one if you wanted, because Kappes does a good job of weaving in plot lines from the previous books so readers don’t feel lost. The stories have a nice balance of day-to-day living and mystery-solving and romance. Cottonwood is some place I’d like to live, and Kenni is someone I’d like to hang out with.
I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley, but when it became available on Amazon, I bought my own copy. I enjoy this series and am always excited to get the next book. I'm a little sad it's only a five-book series, because I've become quite attached to Kenni, Poppa, and the others. At least there's one more to go.
(Let me clarify from the get-go I pay full Amazon Kindle price for all my books and review them because I’m persnickety that way).
Sheriff Kenni Lowry is back along with Poppa to solve another murder in their far from sleepy little Kentucky town. As with the previous book in this series, the author hits the right notes. The characters are believable and even the most annoying ones are fun to have around.
There’s a good blend of seriousness and humor. Mama Viv is the the best character of this type that I’ve seen Tonya Kappes create and develop so far. She’s got other characters similar to this one in her other series. There’s a Granny character in particular in another series whom I felt always came across more as a caricature than an actual person. Well Viv Lowry is a much more evolved version of that character. She’s genuinely funny in her eccentricity. Her more over the top behavior doesn’t come across as forced for laughs. She’s just one of those moms that give their daughters gray hair and those “elevens” (frown lines between the brows).
She’s bossy, manipulative and more than a little crazy. And yes she is self absorbed. And vain. But somehow it all comes together in an entertaining package and is balanced by the fact she really does love Kenni and Kenni loves her. Poppa also loves her, too. I think she does back off when she needs to, but goes full throttle when it’s not going to hurt Kenni and I can respect that about her, even as I am grateful she’s Kenni‘s mom and not mine. Anyway, I enjoyed her.
Everyone else was fun to visualize. The author did a good job bringing them all to life. Everyone is believably flawed enough that even though you accept them as lifelong friends or family, you wonder if they got pushed passed some inner breaking point and had a hand in the crime. This is a town that I enjoy spending time in.
There is one character who really fascinated me, the reporter, Edna Easterly. Edna is irritating but she’s very interesting, for all that we only really knows she’s around by her headlines and her feather. She might make an interesting starring character of her own tv show or book series. Goodness knows she is quirky enough and sees things and hear things we can only wonder at.
Celebrity Chef Frank Von Lee comes to town to taste Sheriff Kenni Lowry's, mama's chicken pot pie. He is murdered. When the cause of death is food poisoning Mama becomes the #1 suspect. Kenni knows things are not going to be good be the ghost of Poppa, her grandfather. He shows up when someone has been killed to help with the sleuthing.
What I really loved about this book and author does such a good job with is that as I am reading along I'm right there within the book trying to figure out who is the killer and what was the motive. As an extra bonus there is actually two mysteries going on within this book.
I love the characters is this book and I loved that this book made me think. Everytime I though I had it figured out who was the murderer there was a twist and my mind would go in a different direction. This book had me guessing right till the very end.
This is the type of book that you want to pick right back up and read again.
Does anyone else think there's something that Finn is hiding? I'm intrigued.

Interesting characters (and some of them are real "characters"!).
A good mystery, the solution to which is not apparent for quite some time.Read more
