Southern Fried by Tonya Kappes
Southern Fried is the second book in a new series by the amazingly talented Tonya Kappes, who brings a small southern town and all its eclectic residence, to life in the Kenni Lowry series.
In Southern Fried Kenni is called to the local florist greenhouse, where the owner has discovered the body of her delivery man. Kenni must solve a murder that has an unexplained cause of death.
While figuring out how to keep the fact that her Poppa, who is a ghost, and only she can see under wraps so people don’t think she is crazy.
Keep the blooming relationship between her and her temporary sheriff Finn Vincent under control and if that isn’t enough, there is her missing beloved dog Duke. Kenni has a lot of work to do.
I loved Southern Fried, just as much as Fixin to Die, the first in the Kenni Lowry series. I love how the town of Cottonwood, comes to life as you read. The tension and romance between Kenni and Finn, was just right. I love the well placed humor through out the book. The mystery was great, it kept me guessing until the end. Which I always enjoy in a book. Tonya Kappes is really an expert at writing southern mysteries. If I had to choose one thing I didn’t care for it would be Kenni trying to hide the fact that her Poppa’s ghost is helping her solve the murder. I get a little tired of her always trying to explain who she is talking to.If you haven’t read the first book, not to worry you will have no problem knowing what is going on. This is a great series filled with southern hospitality.
