Dead As A Doornail by Tonya Kappes-Great Escapes Tours-Character Guest Post

About the book 
Beauty is skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone. And doesn’t our Sheriff Kenni Lowry know that? Well, she knows a lot of things.
Lucy Lowell takes great pride in writing negative reviews in the local newspaper for anything that does not go her way. When Lucy is found dead, it appears to be from natural causes.
But Sheriff Kenni Lowry knows there is more to it because the ghost of her grandfather, the ex-sheriff, is standing over the body.
His presence can only mean one thing: Murder!
Since Kenni’s relationship with Deputy Finn Vincent has heated up, Kenni is having trouble conducting the investigation without Finn questioning her every move.
Can Kenni unravel the mystery on her own or will she have to tell Finn the real reason she knows it was murder—the ghost of her poppa?
It’s blowin’ up a storm and only Kenni knows how it’ll end.
Guest post 
Tonya Kappes is making Mississippi Sweet Tea to match her new southern mystery, Dead As A Doornail. 

If you are coming to Cottonwood, Kentucky, you have to stop and have a sweet ice tea from Cowboy’s Catfish. Bartley Fry not only makes the best fried fish ‘n’ chips this side of the Mississippi, he brews the sweetest ice tea that will have you craving it and send you back 3/4 to get more!
He might get mad as a wet hen when he finds out that I gave the recipe, so I’m figuring y’all are going to keep it a secret. 

So here we go...

Four large cold ice tea bags
One cup of water
¾ cup of sugar
Combine the water and sugar for a mixture and set aside.

Bring three quarts of cold water to a boil. Remove it from the heat and emerge the entire four large cold ice tea bags. Let them steep for about five minutes.  Then you add that water and sugar mixture. Stir real good. Fill you up a mason jar full of ice cubes and pour the tea right over it. Enjoy with a lemon garnish or sprig of mint. I like mine plain, but we all got different tastes. 

You especially want to make this homemade sweet tea while reading DEAD AS A DOORNAIL. Y’all will be on the edge of your seat wondering who killed Lucy Lowell and your mouth is going to go dry with anticipation. Plus it gives you a sweet, treat straight out of Cottonwood.


Kenni Lowry, Sheriff of Cottonwood

And others are saying 
If you enjoy well written Southern cozies that feature a strong female lead that has the law backing her then you really have to try this book/series.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
Tonya Kappes has a knack for knowing what her fans like—a small-town atmosphere, quirky characters, and light mystery that will keep them guessing until the end. The bottom line is she’s delivered again with this Kenni Lowry mystery.
