Kenni Lowry mystery by Tonya Kappes. There are returning characters galore (including Kenni's grandfather, Poppa, who hasn't let being in the afterlife stop him from showing up and helping her solve crime in her constabulary).
For fans of light cozies, this one is cute and full of quirky characters. They're full of southern charm and witticisms. The author is astoundingly prolific and if cozies are your cup of tea, you could spend a long while reading her 83 books in 14+ series.
Definitely a cute, light, and undemanding read. I read it as a standalone and had no trouble following the narrative or keeping track of the characters.
Three and a half stars.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.
