In the South, it’s better when the food is fried and the secrets kept buried…
After the dead body of a beloved Cottonwood resident is found tangled up in an electric fence, Sheriff Kenni Lowry has a hunch that somethin’ ain’t right. Her investigation heats up with a fierce cook-off competition, a euchre game where the intel is sweeter than the brownies, and a decades old family recipe that may just be the proof in the pudding.
The icing on the cake: Kenni is fighting an attraction to her recently sworn-in deputy sheriff, and election season is hot on her tail. When the killer comes after who she holds most dear, even her poppa’s ghostly guidance might not be enough to keep her and her own out of the frying pan.

Meet Myrna Savage
Hi-do! There’s nothing like getting a beautiful wildflower Kentucky mix delivered straight to your room. I’m sorry this is a little late. My delivery driver, Owen Godbye ain’t no count. He’s been forgetting deliveries. When he does remember, he’s late. He’s been late to work a few times this week.
Now, I’m not one to pack too many tales and you’re not from here so I don’t mind telling you, because who are you going to blab too?
Anyways, I heard he’s in a bad financial way. I’m not sure why because his mama, God bless her soul, left them with a fine Okra farm and if he’d and his kin folk could just see eye-to-eye, then I think he’d be able to pay for all that medication.
Oops. Did I say medication? Well, I did hear that he was sick. But that ain’t your problem. It’s mine. Because he was supposed to deliver these over the weekend.
Well, happy Monday. Enjoy your stay in Cottonwood.
By the way, I’m Myrna Savage. I’m the proprietor of Pedal Pushers and the president of the Beautification Committee. Now, you let me know if you see somethin’ that needs beautifying. I’m not sayin’ I’m gonna fix it, I’ll just note it.
Have a good day. I hear your goin’ down to Tiny Tina’s tomorrow for a spa day. Before I go, I’ll just tell you that you’re better off goin’ down to the town branch, grabbing you a couple of rock and rolling around on them. At least that’s what I heard one of her messages is like, but that’s just hear-say and I don’t pack no tales.
Have a good day!
