Book Review(part 1) Ax To Grind by Tonya Kappes

About the book (provided by Great Escapes Tours)
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?
And thought
And I am thinking.  This one is a page turner.  And I am still 
turning the pages!
My first impression a fun and cozy read filled with some interesting characters.  And I like them.

What's not to like about Kenni.  A girl sheriff that takes her job seriously.  Following in her Poppa's foot steps as Cottonwood's
Sheriff.  And actually along with him he's come back from the grave to help her out she gets in a jam. 

Along with dear old ghost dad the new Deputy Finn is right beside Kenni keeping her safe and investigating all the crime in the small sleepy town that isn't supposed to be so full of crime!

There is much to the story like who yeilds the ax.  Maybe the talking bird is the only one who knows!

I am intrigued with this story and turning those pages as fast as I can to find out two things.  

First of course is Who Dun It. 

Second does that spark and sizzle between Kenni and Finn spark into an actually flame?
