Happy happy release day!

Can you believe it? Southern Fried is here!! It's seems like so long since I wrote the  second book in the series. In fact, I'm currently editing the fourth book in the series, Ax To Grind, and just turned in the fifth book of the series. 

I'm visiting Cottonwood on a daily basis. It's a lot of fun to hang out with characters that I love. 

Have you ever done a Scavenger Hunt in a book? It's so much fun. I asked readers to send me items that have meaning in their life. I picked a few of them and sprinkled them in the novel. Now the pdf of those items is ready to be downloaded and you can play along!

  1. Congrats on your release! I totally forgot to do your last scavenger hunt, since I read the book I will have to go back through to do it. I can't say that I'm terribly upset to go back through a book. LOL

    1. Thanks Debbie!! YES! Grab it! It's so fun!

  2. I'm just reading Fixin' to Die, you mean there was a scavenger hunt for it too? I'll have to go back and look at the Kenni Lowry site again. Some day I will be caught up lol.

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, …
