Southern Fried
by Tonya Kappes

In the South, it’s better when the food is fried and the secrets kept buried…

                                                      Southern Fried (A Kenni Lowry Mystery)

Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Henery Press (April 4, 2017)
Paperback: 252 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1635111873
Kindle ASIN: B01N212SJ8

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.

I was excited to get back to Cottonwood, KY.  A quaint and quirky small community where everyone looks out for each other, except when they are looking out for themselves.  At this time people are starting to talk about the upcoming elections, a contentious food competition, and Sheriff Kenni Lowrey is looking towards a new station for the sheriff department.  She finally has a full time deputy (besides her Poppa's ghost) and they need more room. Being in too close quarters isn't helping her figure out if there are sparks flying between Sheriff Kenni and Deputy Finn.
With all this going on, she is called to investigate a body crushing the florist's prize tomatoes.
Gossip flies faster than horseflies around Cottonwood but the facts will take some digging.
It becomes personal when someone takes action against Kenni's property and kidnaps her dog!

Full of Tonya's sass and spirit, this series keeps up a strong pace and keeps Sheriff Kenni on her toes.
I recommend this series for fans of the Lavene's writing and the characters in Kathi Daley's series.
