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.

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.

Kentucky Conundrum, Complicated Killin'

A murder in small town, Cottonwood, Kentucky, puts Sheriff Kenni Lowry in a tough spot . . . ever since she took over the position that her grandfather held, things have been pretty quiet . . . nothing she couldn't handle . . . now the town doctor has been found murdered with no clues as to who the killer might be . . . soon, though, help is on its way . . . in the form of a ghost . . . her dead poppa . . . I found her conversations with her grandfather to be endearing and a high spot of the story . . . the narration was not exactly a true Kentucky accent . . . I am a native Kentuckian . . . and they missed it . . . but not enough that I stopped listening . . . I was also put off by Kenni's teenage "heart throb" reaction to the State Reserve Officer that was put on the case to help her . . . once or twice is enough to bring it up, not over and over . . . but as the story progressed, the actual murder case, was really a good tale . . . so I persevered . . . I liked the small town feel, the crazy antics that always go on in small towns and the book was wrapped up well . . . I have already bought the next in the series . . .
