Kenni Lowry likes to think the zero crime rate in Cottonwood, Kentucky is due to her being sheriff, but she quickly discovers the ghost of her grandfather, the town’s previous sheriff, has been scaring off any would-be criminals since she was elected. When the town’s most beloved doctor is found murdered on the very same day as a jewelry store robbery, and a mysterious symbol ties the crime scenes together, Kenni must satisfy her hankerin’ for justice by nabbing the culprits.
With the help of her Poppa, a lone deputy, and an annoyingly cute, too-big-for-his-britches State Reserve officer, Kenni must solve both cases and prove to the whole town, and herself, that she’s worth her salt before time runs out.

[I received this book free from the publisher through NetGalley. I thank them for their generousity. In exchange, I was simply asked to write an honest review, and post it.

"Stop loafing. You have a job to do."
Sheriff Kendrick (Kenni) Lowry, grandaughter of the late sheriff Elmer Sims, was trying to balance her life as the head of the Cottonwood Police force of....one now that her deputy had retired. She was enough since there had been virtually no crime since she was elected, so the town council hadn't bothered hiring a new deputy. And then, someone is murdered and no one can figure out why.
It forces the issue as Finn Vincent with the Kentucky State Reserve, is called in to help. Along with a break in at the local jewelry store, Kenni has asked Wyatt, the jailer, to also be part of the investigation. The stress seems to have gotten to Kenni as she begins hearing things. The things she is hearing turn out to be something no one EVER expected.
Tonya Kappes' first book in this new series is a laugh-out-loud look at small town America mixed in with a dash of "the prophet is not welcome in their own hometown". Just because she is Sheriff Sims' grandaughter doesn't mean she has the respect from her neighbors, or even her mother who acts as if a SINGLE daughter with a job instead of a husband is disgraceful. It will take more than Kenni to figure this out, and we get to come along on this "Oh no, she didn't...." crazy ferris wheel of a story. Hooray for Kenni Lowry and hooray for Tonya Kapps. Well worth the read!

Review:
This is such a good book and I really enjoyed it. Cozy ghost paranormals are some of my favorites books to read, and this one is as good as any that I have read. It has all of the elements that I look for in this type of book: great characters, small town setting, a lovable ghost and a mystery to solve. What more could a reader ask for?
The characters are well developed and well rounded. Kenni is a hard working tough women who is trying to prove to her small town that she is “man enough” to be the sheriff. She is following in her grandfather’s footsteps, a man she loved deeply and misses terribly. When there is a murder and a robbery committed on the same, she has her hands full, but is determined to solve both cases. She gets help from Finn Vincent, an officer on loan from the State Reserve because Kenni is down one deputy due to retirement. The fact that he is handsome angers her because she finds herself attracted to him. But she refuses to let that fact distract her from solving the mysteries. Poppa, Kenni’s grandfather, was my favorite character and I can see why she misses him so much.
The author is very talented in creating the small town setting. Cottonwood, Kentucky, is full of busy bodies and quirky characters. Gossip runs wild and everybody wants to offer advice and know each other’s business. I think it would be a fun place to visit.
There are two mysteries to solve and they were carried on well throughout the book There are enough suspects, clues and twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. I was not positive who the culprit was until is was revealed, which is how I like it.
I would recommend this book to any reader who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. If you enjoy ghostly paranormal cozies, this is a must read book. I am hoping that this book is the start of a new series because I want to spend more time with Kenni and Poppa.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thank Netgalley and Henery Press for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Tonya what an awesome book!!! I couldn't put this book down. Tonya knows how to write amazing southern mysteries. I was in love with the characters and the plot. Kenni and Finn work perfect together. Loved the chemistry and could not help but crush on Finn just like all the other ladies in the book. I was also happy that a ghost was able to join in the fun. It made the book very funny with her grandad. As I read I kept on trying to figure out who the real killer was. This made the book so much more fun. The mystery and the number of suspects made this story come to life. If you love a cozy mystery, gossip and hot police man then this will be your favorite. I am waiting impatiently for the next book in this series. Please pick this book up, you will enjoy it.

In Fixin' to Die by Tonya Kappes, Kendrick Lowry has been sheriff of Cottonwood, Kentucky for the two years since her Poppa passed away and vacated that position after many years serving as sheriff. The crime rate has been practically zero until one morning when Kenni gets a call that the locally beloved Doc Walton has been murdered. Arriving, Kenni learns that Doc has been stabbed numerous times, but beads of mercury from the old style thermometer that Doc has always used are embedded in his mustache and in his mouth. With no deputy, the town calls in the assistance of a State Reserve officer. Just as the pair get started investigating, they get a call that the local jewelry store has been robbed. And painted on the wall is the same symbol written in ink on Doc's arm, indicating some connection between the two crimes. But something more startling happens soon. As soon as Kenni gets alone, a ghost pops up, the ghost of her Poppa!

Fixin' to Die by Tonya Kappes is the first Kerri Lowry Mystery book. Kenni Lowry is sheriff of Cottonwood, having taken over from her grandfather, the previous sheriff. She finds out that his ghost has been helping her to reduce the crime rate in the town. When the town doctor is murdered the same day as a jewellery robbery, Kenni enlists her grandfathers help. An interesting mystery which started out a bit slow although picked up at the end. It took a bit of time for Kenni to accept her grandfather's ghost, but once this occurred, the pace picked up and I enjoyed the book more.

Besides delighting me with her depiction of this small Kentucky town, Tonya Kappes kept me fully entertained with the mystery and the humor and the characters. And, of course, the hint of romance.
Sheriff Kenni Lowry is very dimensional – stronger than she feels she is, a little bit awkward, completely engaging and relatable. Finn is her hunky sidekick and I had a "big ole" grin on my face during one of the last scenes of the book. I am looking forward to seeing how the chemistry between them plays out in future books. The secondary characters are fun, too. Full of sass and small-town charm, they leap off the page and into your heart. Some of them you want to jerk a knot into; others you just want to hug. But they’re all entertaining and well-defined. I loved Poppa’s character, the ghost of Kenni’s grandfather (the former sheriff) who has been keeping the town free of crime since Kenni was elected sheriff. Except, you know, for the recent murder and jewelry store robbery. But other than that – zero crime rate, thanks to Poppa. He added a lot of heartwarming moments as well as humor to the story and to Kenni’s character.
Fixin to Die is a fantastic start to a new series! It’s cute and endearing, funny and sweet, and the mystery will keep you intrigued from start to finish. Quirky characters with lots of layers give the story a lot of its charm, and Tonya Kappes’ engaging writing style fills in the rest. If you love cozy mysteries and you love small southern towns, then Fixin to Die is fixin’ to be your next fave read.
