New Southern Paranormal Cozy from Tonya Kappes: Ax to Grind

>> Enter to win a mystery tote full of swag! <<<

Southerners keep their secrets swept under the rug, but what happens when that rug goes up for sale?

Bestselling author Berlye Stone, the most famous citizen to ever come out of Cottonwood, Kentucky, has died and put all her worldly possessions up for auction, but not without leaving one more manuscript behind. A hidden tell-all about Cottonwood that’s got more gossip than a ladies’ luncheon.

When Beryle’s assistant turns up with an ax in her back and the only witness is in a coma, Sheriff Kenni Lowry reckons someone in town will do anything to keep the manuscript from seeing the light of day. Her poppa’s ghost returns to help piece together the life of the Beryle he once knew, but his memory’s a little foggy, and any misstep could cause them a world of trouble. With the help of Deputy Finn Vincent, can Kenni sort through the secrets buried in Beryle’s books, or will this be her final chapter?


Character Inerview

Name: Kenni Lowry
Job: Sheriff of Cottonwood, Kentucky
Gender: Female Age: 28
Residence: Cottonwood, Kentucky

Officer Lowry, welcome to Island Confidential! Can you tell our readers a little bit about yourself? Maybe something people might not already know?

I’m the first woman sheriff in our small town of Cottonwood, Ky. And…I know people don’t know that I have a third deputy. The ghost of my grandfather, former Sheriff Elmer Sims.

Which character in Ax to Grind do you get along with the best?

Definitely  Finn Vincent, my deputy and real boyfriend. I can rely on him to always be there for me professionally and personally.

Anyone you have a conflict with?

Lordy beeeee…that’s be my own mama, Vivian Lowry. She still can’t wrap her head around me being the sheriff. She’d love to see me be a debutant, a wife and homemaker. She wears me out.

Just between you and me: What do you really think of your author, Tonya?

She’s crazy! You won’t tell her I said that, will you? But seriously. She puts me in these crazy situations and I tell her all the time, granted it’s probably at 3 a.m., but I tell her that I don’t want to do that. Then she makes me.

What’s next for you?

Even though the author is a bit nuts…she’s kept me alive and well with readers. Ax To Grind is the third book published about my life, but I’m currently telling her my story in the sixth book and we have at least four more to go!

New Southern Paranormal Cozy and #Giveaway: Southern Fried by Tonya Kappes

In the South, it’s better when the food is fried and the secrets kept buried…

After the dead body of a beloved Cottonwood resident is found tangled up in an electric fence, Sheriff Kenni Lowry has a hunch that somethin’ ain’t right. Her investigation heats up with a fierce cook-off competition, a euchre game where the intel is sweeter than the brownies, and a decades old family recipe that may just be the proof in the pudding.

The icing on the cake: Kenni is fighting an attraction to her recently sworn-in deputy sheriff, and election season is hot on her tail. When the killer comes after who she holds most dear, even her poppa’s ghostly guidance might not be enough to keep her and her own out of the frying pan.


Name: Kenni Lowry
Job: Sheriff of Cottonwood, Kentucky
Gender: Female Age: 28
Residence: Cottonwood, Kentucky

About Me: There’s one thing you should know…I love my Poppa. He was the reason I went to the police academy. He was the sheriff of our small town of Cottonwood, Kentucky and a great one at that! When I was a child and until the day he died, we did a lot of back and forth on the small crimes that happened in and around our small town. We loved to banter back and forth about what if this happened and this is why or all the other fun details we’d come up with on why someone did the crime. I always felt like I was his unofficial deputy. Of course there was never a murder…until I became sheriff after the passing of my Poppa.
I live in my Poppa’s old house on free row, really Broadway Street. We call it free row because most people who live on my street are on commodity cheese or check the system in some way. There are junker cars on cement blocks and broken washing machines on the porch, but deep down their good ole folk. And with the sheriff living on the street, they aren’t going to do much harm. My best friend is Jolee Fischer and my bloodhound Duke. And…I just might have a hankerin’ for my new deputy, Finn Vincent. Have you seen him???
