Tonya Kappes

5 Stars



USA Today Bestselling author Tonya Kappes brings you southern and quirky characters in her mystery series. Her stories are charged with humor, friendship, family and life in small southern towns.

It is fall in Normal, KY, and the town is celebrating the season with a Bourbon Festival.

Mae West is trying to enjoy the festival and a night out with Hank. While trying to dodge the one question every keep asking (When is the wedding?) Mae overhears an argument between the bourbon king’s son and another man and woman. So, when she stumbles over a body with ties to the Bourbon King, her hackles are raised.

Mae, Dottie, and the rest of the Laundry Club Ladies start poking around into the Bourbon King’s complicated life and soon find out there’s more than bourbon underneath the lid of a bourbon barrel.  (Amazon)


Mae and the Laundry Club Ladies are back to solve another murder mystery.  During the Bourbon Fall Festival a body is found.  Mae, Hank and the Ladies have to figure out the person responsible.  She also has to figure out what she is going to do about Hank’s question.  Everyone wants to know.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and I felt like I was at the campsite and the town, watching all the action take place and listening to what the Laundry Club is doing.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.   The mystery was well plotted and it was not easily solved.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I cannot wait to see what Mae and the gang have to solve next.

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