I primarily read during my hour long commute to and from work and as much as I love getting home, there were a couple of times when I wished the train ride was longer. It has Southern charm, Southern humor, Southern manners, and a fierce Southern mama. The plot is captivating, funny, and chock full of twists. It keeps you guessing right to the last page. I can’t wait to see what she does in the next book.
Oh and the author needs to brush up on her technology. A SIM card is the small card that allows cell phones to work with their carrier. I think when she's talking about a SIM card in this story she means an SD or micro SD card if she's talking about the most commonly used memory cards.
And she mentions Kenni had a flip phone but then when she's describing what she's doing with her phone in this story it seems more capable than a simple flip phone. More like an iPhone or Android phone.
There are a few other parts of the story where the "modern conveniences" are a bit wonky.
But that's all small potatoes. Everything else is loads of fun. I love the characters. Mama is a bit overbearing but not too obnoxious. She's funny. These people and this town definitely have won me over and I look forward to many more books in the series.
I do have one complaint about Kenni and how she handles one part of her job but it includes a spoiler....so look away...
....spoiler....Kenni shouldn't need anyone to come to her rescue at this point. There was no reason she couldn't have gone in and made the arrest before going in to rescue the hostage. At that point she had her gun, her dog and a flipping ghost on her side and the element of surprise. It's getting kind of ridiculous that a man keeps having to come to her rescue. Unless the lack of backup would have been a problem for a guy, too. But something about that scene just was a bit off for me.
Can I just say how much I love these characters? Poppa is such fun character and I love how he helps Kenni on the cases, just like she did as a little girl when he was Sheriff. Poppa has a different approach to things than Kenni and it proves to be very helpful during the investigation. And did I mention he’s a ghost? I still feel like Kenni has some growing to do, especially when it comes to her own personal life. I’m hoping this big time city boy is just what this small town girl needs. The romance seems to be heating up between Deputy Finn and Kenni and I can’t wait to read the next book to see if they finally get some alone time.
Tonya Kappes sure does know how to keep you on your toes. With one mystery intertwined into another, she keeps you guessing while twisting and turning until you’re dizzy. She also knows how to create a colorful cast that will have your sides hurting from laughter. These southern characters are sure to keep you in stitches.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of cozy mysteries. I’d also recommend it to anyone who loves southern humor and likes a little paranormal in their books.
Someone does not want Kenni investigating, and is sending threatening messages to her about her threatening to kill her pet. When another person who has information for her comes up dead Olson , and it looks like suicide. Everything has been laid out to neatly pointing to him as the murderer of Owen Gafney for Kenni'ssatisfaction.
After it's announced a former deputy sheriff will be running for Sheriff position in the next election because of the rising crime. Kenni comes across clues that will help her solve the case. And it all really does revolve around the okra recipes cookbook.
Tonya Kappes wrote a fun book that was fast paced, has well-developed characters, and a solid plot line. This is a story that you will find hard to put down.
