Publisher's Summary

Kenni Lowry likes to think the zero crime rate in Cottonwood, Kentucky is due to her being sheriff, but she quickly discovers the ghost of her grandfather, the town's previous sheriff, has been scaring off any would-be criminals since she was elected. When the town's most beloved doctor is found murdered on the very same day as a jewelry store robbery and a mysterious symbol ties the crime scenes together, Kenni must satisfy her hankerin' for justice by nabbing the culprits. With the help of her poppa, a lone deputy, and an annoyingly cute, too-big-for-his-britches State Reserve officer, Kenni must solve both cases and prove to the whole town - and herself - that she's worth her salt before time runs out.

problematic cozy

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The women acted very juvenile. "Oh, he's so hot"! Really, adult women who can't act professionally when having to work with a good looking guy. That is just bad writing unless of course you think women are idiots.


Would you recommend Fixin' to Die to your friends? Why or why not?

Probably not.


What aspect of Hillary Huber’s performance would you have changed?

The narration was very good.


Do you think Fixin' to Die needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I think it has possibilities as a series if the main character just wasn't so dumbed down. It is a nice idea with the grandpa ghost helping out his granddaughter who has become sheriff.


Any additional comments?

A fun little cozy with some problems. I mostly enjoyed this but there were some negative aspects. First off, it was totally obvious very early on 'who did it'. I never suspected anyone else. Then the women in the story who were supposed to be adult professionals become juveniles when in the presence of a handsome man. Finn (Mr. Handsome), has come to town to help in the investigation of a major crime. The sheriff can't concentrate on her JOB because Finn raked his hand through his hair, or he was wearing sunglasses that made him look 'hot'. You have got to be kidding me. All of the women seem to become stupid around a handsome guy. Have they never seen a good-looking male before? It would be helpful if Sheriff Kenni was more intelligent and better at her job, The mystery is solved, but it is a fluke as opposed to rational deduction.

Had to get past the narrator which was a struggle.

What did you love best about Fixin' to Die?

The story and the characters were interesting.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Fixin' to Die?

When Kenni realizes she is attracted to Finn Vincent.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator's voice was hard to listen to. The main character was suppose to be a woman about 26-27 years old, but the voice sounded like a 45-55 year old woman with a smoker's ruined voice.


Any additional comments?

It was a bit irritating how long Kenni took and her inner dialogue, which seemed chapters long, before realizing her Poppa was "real".
