Kenni Lowry, Book 1
Synopsis: 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.
Review: I really enjoyed another series by the author and friends recommended this first volume to me, so I gladly jumped in. Maybe because it’s a step below the other one, I was a little disappointed, even if it was an enjoyable read.
Kenni is a young sheriff. She is thrilled to have taken over from her grandfather, but her parents are not. Far from it, in fact. And now a murder has been committed in town, the day a jewelry store is robbed! What emotions for the small town of Cottonwood which is not used to this kind of thing. Determined to find out what is going on and if there is a connection between the two cases, our heroine teams up with a charming state reserve officer who has been dispatched to help her. What our heroine expects even less is to work hand in hand with her grandfather’s ghost to discover the truth.
It was a fun read, even if the ghost side comes a little late and remains light. That said, it was an enjoyable read and maybe on occasion I’ll dive into volume 2.
