With a fantastic cast of characters and a story filled with humor and murder you won’t be able to put it down.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Tonya Kappes had me laughing from the opening pages of Southern Fried…
I love these books because the whodunit isn’t all that obvious. Just when I think I’ve figured it out, a new wrench is thrown into the mix and I’m back to square one.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
Full of Tonya’s sass and spirit, this series keeps up a strong pace and keeps Sheriff Kenni on her toes.
This is an engaging story full of misdirection and undercurrents…
~ Jemima Pett, Author
It was a good solid mystery, the author kept me guessing and I like that.

Southern Fried (A Kenni Lowry Mystery)
2nd in Series
Henery Press (April 4, 2017)
Paperback: 252 pages
Kindle ASIN: B01N212SJ8
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.
Having read Fixin To Die and enjoyed it, I was expecting more fun shenanigans with these colorful characters. And I got it.
It’s two years until the next election, but zany events leave Sherriff Kenni Lowry with no choice but to start campaigning early. She has a lot to overcome being the first female in office. And she needs to solve this murder case swiftly so the people will put their trust in her again.
When one of the towns residents is found lying on some prize tomatoes, it’s a juicy case of murder. Kenni is hard on the case, along with her poppa’s ghost, a former Sheriff and quite handy for solving cases. As with the first book, it tickled me how these two worked together and that Kenni had to be careful not to be caught looking like she was crazy and talking to herself.
And I’ve got to hand it to Kenni. She’s juggling campaigning to keep her job while trying to solve this case quickly, and fighting her attraction to the new handsome deputy. The possible romance isn’t the focal point of the story, but sure makes things interesting.
There’s lots of suspects and I had fun following Kenni as she eliminated them one by one until the culprit was revealed.
In a nut shell, if you like mysteries with a dash or two of southern charm and humor, you’ll enjoy this one.
