Everyone in Cottonwood loves the new bakery…until a Cottonwood resident is found dead with a half-eaten donut in her hand.
Sheriff Kenni Lowry has her hands full. With a new murder in town and a new deputy to train, she’s not sure if she’s ever gonna get this booger solved.
Sheriff Elmer Sims comes to the rescue, stepping up as Kenni’s ghost deputy. As the ex-dead-now-ghost deputy and Kenni’s Poppa, there are clues beyond the sprinkles in the donut that only he can see.
Adding to Kenni’s stress is that the parents of Finn Vincent, her hunky boyfriend and the new sheriff of Clay’s Ferry, have come to town to meet Kenni and her parents. And Kenni’s mama ain’t too happy. As they say in the South, nobody’s happy if mama ain’t happy.
With Poppa’s keen insight and Kenni’s determination, Kenni focuses all her attention on bringing the killer to justice before the yeast rises and another dead body turns up.
Save room for dessert. You don’t want to miss this Southern mystery!
