Melissa's Review:

Dead As A Doornail is book 5 in the Kenni Lowry series. This series is such a fun read/listen, it has the right mix of cozy mystery, paranormal and a dash of romance. I'm a bit sad that I'm caught up now, but hopefully it won't be too long until the next one is released.

We're back in the small town of Cottonwood and start off with Kenni and some other gals at the beauty salon when Lucy Lowell walks in and creates quite the scene. Lucy has the nasty habit of writing negative reviews about businesses in the paper when she doesn't get her way and when she winds up dead and it looks like natural causes Kenni is suspicious. She knows something isn't right because her grandfather's ghost is hanging around and he only comes when murder is afoot and there is a case to solve. The case turns even more shocking as additional bodies are found and Kenni and Deputy Finn have to solve it before anyone else is killed.

Finn and Kenni are dating finally but he's starting to notice that she's talking to herself and having hunches or answers to things she wouldn't know. I'll be interested in seeing his reaction to the "I see dead people" line she'll drop one day. On the whodunit side, I loved all the red herrings and twists and turns and I'm glad to say I didn't figure out the killer before it was revealed this time around.

Dead As a Doornail was a fun installment in this small town cozy mystery. I really enjoy the characters in this series, I love Kenni's character and have to admit some of the secondary characters crack me up with the things they say/do. If you enjoy your cozy mysteries with a touch of paranormal you'll love this series.
