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?

Review

As the third book in the series I am fully attached to Kenni by this point. She has proven that she is dependable, smart, sweet, caring, and in my opinion a really good sheriff even if she is getting her training by being thrown into the deep end. This story is no exception. The death of a famous author is their small town really heats things up as the gossip rolls around about a tell-all book that was written before the author died. It must be a good one because it seems that everyone around town wants to get their hands on it including the killer as the bad person goes after anyone even remotely connected to the possible location of the thing. One woman is found dead outside the antique shop and another is found knocked out inside. The injured just happens to be her opponent for sheriffs wife making the run for election heat up as well. Events really come to a head as things keep happening one after another until Kenni is finally able to put all of the puzzle pieces together revealing the killer which I admit surprised me a little bit. This is a really good mystery novel with a leading female law enforcement officer that i highly recommend to fans of that genre. Since I really enjoyed it gets 4/5 stars.

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, …
