Dead As A Doornail

Beauty is skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone. And doesn’t our Sheriff Kenni Lowry know that? Well, she knows a lot of things.

Lucy Lowell takes great pride in writing negative reviews in the local newspaper for anything that does not go her way. When Lucy is found dead, it appears to be from natural causes.

But Sheriff Kenni Lowry knows there is more to it because the ghost of her grandfather, the ex-sheriff, is standing over the body.

His presence can only mean one thing: Murder!

Since Kenni’s relationship with Deputy Finn Vincent has heated up, Kenni is having trouble conducting the investigation without Finn questioning her every move.

Can Kenni unravel the mystery on her own or will she have to tell Finn the real reason she knows it was murder—the ghost of her poppa?

It’s blowin’ up a storm and only Kenni knows how it’ll end.

Six Feet Under

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.

Ax To Grind

Ever daydream about taking a little revenge? Lifting a corner of that precious rug everyone’s busy sweeping secrets under? Well, let me tell you about Beryle Stone.

She was a bestselling author and the most famous citizen to ever come out of Cottonwood, Kentucky. She knew everyone in town and they knew her. And when she died, she put all her worldly possessions up for auction. All but one.

She left behind a hidden tell-all about Cottonwood that’s got more gossip than a ladies’ luncheon. Oh, Lordy, does that make the town folk hot. I’m not talking Deputy Finn Vincent hot, I’m talking hot under those Southern collars hot.

And since revenge is a dish best served cold, things turn ugly. Someone gets an ax to the back and the only witness gets put in a coma.

Enter Sheriff Kenni Lowry. She reckons someone in town will do anything to keep the manuscript from seeing the light of day. And it’s her job to find out who. She starts uncovering as many secrets as there are suspects.

Of course her poppa’s ghost returns to help. He pieces together the life of the Beryle he once knew, but his memory’s a little foggy, and any misstep could cause them a world of trouble.

Can Kenni sort through the secrets buried in Beryle’s books, or will this be her final chapter?

Pour yourself a tall glass of sweet tea or a shot of Kentucky Bourbon (no judging in these parts), kick up your feet, and get lost in this delicious Southern mystery. Trust me, you’ll want to pick up this book because it’s just too good to put down.

Southern Fried

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.
