A light and fun cozy mystery set in Cottonwood with a play on southern stereotypes. It has a touch of paranormal and a romance.This book was a problem to rate as parts were fascinating and other areas were ho-hum. Sheriff Kenni Lowry is dismayed to find a Cottonwood resident, Owen Godbey dead with electric wires wrapped around his feet. The Sheriff, who is exploring a suspicious death with her new deputy, Finn Vincent finds a mess of domestic problems, contests of food, and a strange will. The will picks siblings against each other. Owen has the cookbook but Stanley has the crop. The idea of the will was to bring the siblings together. However, greed, jealousy, and lust interfered and the brothers are far apart. Stanley nominates a candidate to run against Kenni involving re-election nonsense. The ghost has only a small part of the story. Jenni and Finn are beginning a romance. I found portions of the plot hard to believe. The ending will surprise. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Henery Press through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own
