Blowin’ Up a Murder

Kenni Lowry, Book #8

Tonya Kappes

5 Stars


Love and marriage go together like grits and gravy…or do they?

Welcome to the little town of Cottonwood, Kentucky, a charming town with fun business names like Tiny Tina’s Hair Salon and Cowboy’s Catfish.

Sheriff Lowry becomes public enemy number one when she shuts down a wedding reception when one of the catering waiters ends up dead impaled with a wedding umbrella. The bride is not happy and proceeds to beat Sheriff Lowry with her bridal bouquet!

Kenni and Poppa are on the case! How lucky that Kenni is already there to start her investigation! She’s got a bratty bride, a crass groomsman and dead waiter! If the murder at the wedding was not enough, she’s got to get to solve this so that her friends business isn’t ruined!  (Amazon)  


The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Kenni and Poppa have a special relationship that even death cannot ruin.  Kenni has her hands full when a waiter is killed at a wedding reception.  The bride and her parents are not happy that Kenni ruined the reception.  And her own momma is a suspect.  It is a good thing that Poppa is there to help her.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and it pulled me into the story right from the start.  She is also quite good at telling a southern tale, which I am very happy about.  The mystery is well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider.

I cannot tell you how happy I was to get to spend time with Kenni and Poppa. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written cozy mystery.  I cannot wait for the next one.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
