Give Cottenwood a try!
by Tonya Kappes


Welcome to Cottonwood! We are thrilled you have chosen to vacation with us. Isn’t the steeple of our courthouse beautiful? We hope you take a tour and enjoy the marble floors and marble walls.

By 1798 plans for a town were laid out by local Reverend John Calf. The town’s name honors Revolutionary War Colonel George Cotton. You will find Colonel’s framed portrait near the rotunda leading up to the clock in the watchtower.

Just a forty-five south from Lexington, Kentucky, you’ll find Cottonwood home to a truly unique blend of carefully preserved historical and natural landmarks, numerous cultural and historical events, over 100,000 acres of fertile diverse land bordered by more miles of Kentucky River shoreline than any other Kentucky county and, of course, friendly folks who are happy to share their love of the area with visitors.

Please stop in and introduce yourself to me. I’d love to know what you think about our fine town. 

Please, take your time and wander in our local shops and restaurants. Stay in one of the two fine lodging Inns.

Rest assured that Cottonwood is safe. There’s only been one murder in the last. . .ummm. . .forever and that was just a few months ago. Sheriff Lowry has everything under control and solved that murder, though it was a pickle. Anyways, enjoy your stay! Don’t forget to meet down on the front of the courthouse lawn on Monday, March 20 where you’ll meet your tour guide for your first stop in and around Cottonwood!

Enjoy the view of the beautiful Kentucky River and our famous Kentucky Bluegrass where the tint really is a hint of blue. You’ll enjoy the limestone walls that keep our grass so healthy and feed our racehorses.

You can enjoy a glass of sweet ice tea while sitting in one of the many rockers on the wrap around porch. You might find yourself having a conversation with Kiwi, the Inn’s Macaw mascot. Kiwi is known to pack a tell or two, so pretty  much everything he’ll tell you is gossip.

Stay in one of the ten rooms at the Inn. Come into the communal room for a snack anytime of the day or night. Or just open your room window and listen to the sweet sounds of the Kentucky River and the Kentucky state bird, the Cardinal sing a lovely song.

A paranormal cozy mystery
Kenni Lowry Mystery Series
Book 4

Too many cooks in the kitchen spoil the broth. And let me tell you, this broth is in trouble. Get ready for a Southern showdown.
The residents of Cottonwood, Kentucky are sent into a tizzy when the Culinary Channel comes to town to film an episode of Southern Home Cookin’ with celebrity chef Frank Von Lee.
Especially Sheriff Kenni Lowry.
Her mama’s award-winning chicken pot pie is what brought Frank to town, and they don’t make hair in the South bigger than her mama’s ego after the news.
When Frank Von Lee is found dead from food poisoning and the most likely culprit is Mama’s chicken pot pie, Kenni’s poppa, the former sheriff, comes back from the Great Beyond to assist in the investigation.
But nothing’s prepared Kenni for such a personal tie to a case, and she finds herself pushing the limits of the laws she’s sworn to protect.
This book’s so delicious it’ll make your mouth water and leave you hankerin’ for more.

 Not only is there always something exciting happening in Cottonwood, Kentucky but there is always the best gossip. It might be about someone's romantic relationship (or is it just for status and money?) or when the town women have had "a little work done." 
Sheriff Kenni Lowrey's Mama Viv won the food truck competition in the previous book of this fun series and to celebrate a TV cooking show is coming to town with a celebrity chef.  Now the local diner wants " a little work done" too.
Add to that some mysterious PINK handicap parking placards making the rounds and Kenni and Deputy Finn have plenty to investigate. With the reappearance of Sheriff Kenni's deceased Poppa, the former sheriff, she knows something bigger will be coming into play. 
I enjoy the characters and settings of this series. The nosy neighbors as well as how, no matter what their differences, the townsfolk have each others' backs. 
The mysterious death and entangled investigations hit too close to home for Sheriff Kenni. She still has time to take a baking class! Murder shouldn't be this much fun!
