Cozy up with contemporary and historical mysteries featuring fiery heroines and heart-stopping heroes ...

Rook Campbell is broke, divorced, jobless, and in desperate need of steady employment, which is hard to come by in the small town of Rothdale, Kentucky. With the help of her friend and neighbor Bryan, she lands a good job at the Four Wild Horses Distillery and meets an attractive co-worker with lots of dating potential. Her life is finally headed in the right direction until a co-worker dies under suspicious circumstances and a shipment of rare small-batch bourbon goes missing. Worse, her personal life begins to unravel as her beloved grandmother falls ill. Normally she can depend on her ex, Cam, for help, but his new fiancée’s jealousy is getting in the way. As the body count rises, Rook becomes ensnared in discovering who’s committing the crimes—or she might be the next to die.

What reviewers are saying about Devil's Kiss...

The Coziest of Cozy Mysteries!

Five stars for this coziest of cozy mysteries! In her first novel, Bennington has created an enchanting setting full of multi-dimensional characters who are oh-so-relatable. 

In DEVIL’S KISS, Bennington has skillfully set up the series and leaves the reader wanting more. Not only is her writing style clever, with colorful phrases like crinkum-crankum, condolence peach cobbler, and my personal favorite, “tender, gooey feeling that accompanied images of baby animals,” but her plot is smart, full of twists, and very, very satisfying.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next Small Batch Mystery! Bravo, Ms. Bennington!


Bottom Line: For thirty years, I lived in the area where this story takes place, or at least the area it’s modeled after, and I loved revisiting it on the pages of Devil’s Kiss by Michelle Bennington.
~Reading is my Superpower

Devil’s Kiss by Michelle Bennington is a great first book in a new series. Ms. Bennington does an excellent job of writing this book. Just realize that with any good Southern mystery book, you should be excepting to have lots of snacks by you.
