DEAD AS A DOORNAIL by Tonya Knappes


The fifth installment of the Kenni Lowry series just keeps on getting better. This is the best one yet. Kenni is the sheriff of a small town, Cottonwood, Kentucky. Whenever there is murder the ghost of the previous sheriff and Kenni’s grandfather becomes visible to her. The town is thrilled as the Mayor is getting married and his bride has the town in an uproar. Kenni is tricked into being the Maid of Honor.  Penny Lowell, a woman who has many enemies and writes negative reviews that are printed in the daily paper is found dead of an apparent heart attack. Poppy ghost shows up and Kenni knows it is murder. The twists and turns begin and it will surprise you. There are a couple of side themes to add spice to the tale. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series.

    I have read a few from this series, and I always have mixed feelings about them because of the paranormal aspects. I decided to pass on this one, but I do think Kappes is a good storyteller. Your good review makes me wish I had read this one—almost.

    • I don’t care for the paranormal aspect and like you I have mixed feelings about this series. This has a twist that I had not expected, very unique. I am glad I decided to request it.
