Too many cooks in the kitchen spoil the broth. And let me tell you, this broth is in trouble. Get ready for a Southern showdown.
The residents of Cottonwood, Kentucky are sent into a tizzy when the Culinary Channel comes to town to film an episode of Southern Home Cookin’ with celebrity chef Frank Von Lee.
Especially Sheriff Kenni Lowry.
Her mama’s award-winning chicken pot pie is what brought Frank to town, and they don’t make hair in the South bigger than her mama’s ego after the news.
When Frank Von Lee is found dead from food poisoning and the most likely culprit is Mama’s chicken pot pie, Kenni’s poppa, the former sheriff, comes back from the Great Beyond to assist in the investigation.
But nothing’s prepared Kenni for such a personal tie to a case, and she finds herself pushing the limits of the laws she’s sworn to protect.
This book’s so delicious it’ll make your mouth water and leave you hankerin’ for more.

SIX FEET UNDER by Tonya Kappes | A Henery Press mystery
“Y’all ain’t gonna believe this” was the first thing Mama said as Finn Vincent and I moseyed into Ben’s Diner.
Here is what I thought
Six Feet Under is another great installment of the Kenni Lowry mystery series!
Kenni’s mother is so excited because a famous food critic is coming to Ben’s Diner to try Viv’s famous pot pie. She is in competition with another restaurant but she is sure that her food will win.
It wouldn’t be a Kenni Lowry book without some wild antics from Kenni’s mother but this time it only gets her into a lot of trouble. The critic is found dead and all the evidence points to Vivian Lowry. It doesn’t help that she was seen at the inn where the critic was staying. It’s hard for Kenni but she knows she has to do her job and with the help of her ghostly grandfather (who use to be the sheriff and is now her ghost deputy), and her boyfriend Finn, who is her deputy, they do their best to prove Viv didn’t do it. The mayor thinks that Kenni can’t do her job right because it’s her mother so ask her to step down which she does as she feels it will give her a way to look into things without prying eyes. So Finn takes the lead and Kenni tries to prove that it could have been Mundy a chef who has had some trouble with the critic.
I love this southern mystery and all the quirky characters that go with it! Kenni and Finn are great but her ghostly poppa and her mother Viv are my favorite characters. The author has done such a great job giving all her characters life that you can really get into them all and just love them and the town.
It has a really good mystery though I had it figured out but I didn’t know why, It seems I am always good at figuring out the killer but not the motive…lol.
If you love a good southern cozy with a little paranormal element to it then you need to pick up this series, you won’t be disappointed!! I can’t wait to get into Dead as a Doornail that comes out later this year!
