Southern Fried
by Tonya Kappes

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.
~Laura’s Interests
This is an engaging story full of misdirection and undercurrents…
~ Jemima Pett, Author

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.

Oh my heavens this is one funny book. The author has really gotten the southern lingo and charm down for her characters. I loved everything about this book including the delicious southern dishes that made my mouth water. If you haven't had fried okra you are really missing out. There are many ways to make okra, but someone has the perfect recipe to kill for.

Kenni is the sheriff of the town of Cottonwood, Kentucky.  She is good at her job and it doesn't hurt to have a hunky deputy named Finn by her side. She does have a secret weapon that could prove to be very valuable . What is her secret weapon? Well that's easy to answer  once you read this laugh out loud book.   The people in the small town are quirky, funny and hiding secrets . When a body turns up in Myrna's greenhouse, she is more concerned about her prized tomatoes than the dead body. Those tomatoes were going to win her a big prize in the cooking contest, but now they probably aren't good to use. Who had it in for the poor person who died?

The suspects are plentiful and the secrets are many among this small town . As the investigation heats up, it seems there is a very special cookbook that everyone wants to get their hands on. I really loved how family members were ready to throw each other under the bus to take the suspicion off themselves. Sometimes blood isn't always thicker than water. When Kenni starts to get close to the truth, someone wants to teach her a lesson. What do they take from her that is very special? Once again the author writes an intriguing book filled with great characters . I loved trying to figure out who the killer was and it sure was a surprise to me. I can't wait for the next book in this wonderful series.

I received a copy of this book from The Great Escapes Book Tour. The review is my own opinion
