    Entertaining Cozy Mystery!

    Tangled up in Tinsel by Tonya Kappes is the sixth novel in A Kenni Lowry Mystery series. Kenni Lowry is looking forward to spending Christmas with her deputy/boyfriend, Finn Vincent and his family in Chicago. Kenni’s mother, Vivian is upset (putting it mildly) that Kenni will not be in Cottonwood for Christmas and has decided to run for Snow Queen (to keep herself occupied). Kenni is enjoying the annual Hunt Club Christmas Cantata with Finn and notices that Leighann Graves and Manuel Liberty are together. Leighann is now eighteen and her family can no longer can stand in the way of their relationship. The next morning, Kenni hears that a blizzard is heading their way which could interfere with her Christmas plans. Kenni refuses to believe the meteorologists and is sure that positive thinking will hold off the snowstorm. Kenni is notified that Leighann Graves failed to come home last night and Manuel has not seen her since the dance ended. When Poppa appears, Kenni knows that Leighann will not be returning home again. If Kenni wishes to depart for Chicago on time, she needs to rely on Poppa to help her wrap up the case. Which one of the suspects will be hanging their stocking in a jail cell? Will Kenni and Finn make it to Chicago for Christmas? Tangled up in Tinsel is set in the small Southern town of Cottonwood, Kentucky which is filled with quirky characters. I believe Kenni’s mother outdoes all of them with her crazy antics. The town has charming shops and gossipy citizens. Kenni has spent every Christmas in Cottonwood until this year. While she is eager to meet Finn’s family, she will also miss her family and the town festivities. The threat of a big snowstorm along with a murder just might keep her in Cottonwood. I always enjoy Poppa as he adds liveliness to the story plus I like the ghostly element. I enjoy Tonya Kappes writing style. It draws in the reader and keeps them turning the page (or swiping if you use an e-reader). There are a handful of suspects for Kenni to interview and figure out which one killed Leighann Graves. There are good clues to aid readers in solving the crime before the solution is revealed. I do wish it had been more of a challenge to solve this whodunit. Tangled up in Tinsel can be read alone, but I recommend reading the series in order. It helps you to understand Kenni, the town, her relationship with her mother, and why Poppa appears. My rating for Tangled up in Tinsel is 4 out of 5 stars. If you are looking for a humorous and entertaining cozy mystery, then Tangled up in Tinsel is the book for you.
