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. (Summary via Goodreads)
I was so excited when book two in this series came out because it is absolutely wonderful to read. Who could resist Cottonwood, Kentucky and all of it's quirky, fun characters, even the dead one.
Another member of the town is found dead and again leaves Kenni, her ghostly grandfather Poppa, and her hunky sheriff "friend " Finn to find the clues and solve this mystery before they are deep fried.
This is a wonderful series filled with adventure, a ghost, and of course some romance. This is a hard book to put down. Looking forward to book three.
