This week, take a visual tour of Tonya Kappes's third Kenni Lowry mystery, Ax to Grind, with GIFnotes!

Southerners keep their secrets swept under the rug…

But what happens when that rug goes up for sale?

Bestselling author Berlye Stone, the most famous citizen to ever come out of Cottonwood, Kentucky…

Has died and put all her worldly possessions up for auction…

But not without leaving one more manuscript behind—a hidden tell-all about Cottonwood that’s got more gossip than a ladies’ luncheon.

When Beryle’s assistant turns up with an ax in her back…

And the only witness is in a coma…

Sheriff Kenni Lowry reckons someone in town will do anything to keep the manuscript from seeing the light of day.

Her poppa’s ghost returns to help piece together the life of the Beryle he once knew, but his memory’s a little foggy, and any misstep could cause them a world of trouble.

With the help of Deputy Finn Vincent, can Kenni sort through the secrets buried in Beryle’s books…

Or will this be her final chapter?
