Tonya Kappes

5 Stars


Amazon All Star author and 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.

Mae West is bound and determined to stay in shape for her wedding day and with all the delicious southern dessert Mary Elizabeth is serving for Thanksgiving Mae has joined the local running group to race in Thanksgiving’s annual Turkey Trot.

She never figured murder would be on the menu and a couple of people she loves have a perfect motive.

The list of suspects isn’t exactly brief, especially when one of the governor’s recently pardoned prisoner is at the top of the list. Mae has a pretty full plate between trying to plan a wedding that will satisfy everyone, keeping Dottie in line as well as trying to get along with her future mother in law.

So what’s a little investigation to keep her mind off things? If Mae’s not careful, she may find herself served up as a last-minute course with all the trimmings.   (Amazon)


Mae and The Laundry Club Ladies have another murder to solve.   Instead of trying to get back in shape by running with the running group and getting ready for Thanksgiving, Mae and her friends will have to figure out who is a murderer.  Good thing she has her friends to help her.  

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The mystery is well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider.  It is always fun to try out the mystery.  

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  Grab a copy and enjoy a Thanksgiving mystery with Mae and the gang.

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