Southern Fried Cover Reveal!

I'm so excited to show you the cover of Southern Fried, the second book in the Kenni Lowry Mystery Series. Isn't it amazing?
The wire around the cast-iron skillet is barbwire that is very important to the mystery. I'm beyond so excited for this book!
It's releasing April 2017 and I'm beyond thrilled for you to come back to Cottonwood, Kentucky and visit.
The first book in the series, Fixin' To Die is now available, so if you haven't read it, be sure to before Southern Fried comes out.
Dianne Jessie, a Krew Member, won a NAME THE BOOK contest on my Krew Member page on Facebook.
I'm reaching out again! To you!!
Dead and Breakfast is my current working title on the third Kenni Lowry Mystery Series book. I just found out that another mystery author has named her book Dead and Breakfast that will be out next year before this one. I'm asking you for your help! I'm looking for something VERY specific. A play on words with a southern twist that has to do with murder. The setting is at the Inn, a bed and breakfast in Cottonwood.

Leave a comment to help me name the book! I will announce the winner next week! And when you leave a comment, you will be entered to win a $5 Amazon Gift Card! Winner announced next Tuesday!


  1. I like barbwire around skillet too! Sounds like a great read

  2. Mourning and Moonshine
    Very fitting title, especially if at least one of the victims is a lovable Hill Billy Moonshiner.

  3. Collard Greens and Murder or just Greens and Murder.

  4. Unresponsive In The B&B
    An Unresponsive Breakfast

  5. A Breakfast and a Death. Love the cover and being a Ga. girl the cast and skillet and eggs are the norm around here. I was a patient of a doctor at the UK Hospital in Lexington for 8 yrs so I've been to Ky in many times and in all seasons everyone always beautiful.

  6. Dated, plated and dead. Does Southern Friefd have recipes in it?

  7. I left a few ideas on your posts on Facebok so now I'm coming out blank for something else. Darn! Let me think. Breakfast with a Corprse? Thanks for the chance to win!

Beaches, Bungalows, & Burglaries Chapter One


“A campground?” I gulped back a good hissy fit, because no one could ever underestimate the power of a good hissy fit, something I’ve tried really hard not to do in years. “As in tiny little metal houses and port-a-potties?” ​ “Well, I think they have a toilet in them” said Stanley Shelton, my lawyer. He eased back in his big fancy, wingback leather chair with his elbows resting on the wooden arms and his fingers drumming against each other. The grey pinstriped suit was of the finest materials and the nice crystal cufflinks were the touch it needed that screamed successful lawyer. “I think the toilet is small, but you’re small.” He rubbed his hand over his bald head and then proceeded to draw his hand over his mustache and beard. ​ I tried as hard as I could to keep it together, but my composure was under attack. ​ “What about my house in the Hamptons? I’ll just go there.” I let out a sigh of relief. It was a perfect plan. “I’m desperately going to miss the New York City apartment, …
