That ghost sure looks . . . familiar
Only a handful of people know that Emma Lee Raines, proprietor of a small-town Kentucky funeral home, is a “Betweener.” She helps ghosts stuck between here and the ever-after—murdered ghosts. Once Emma Lee gets them justice they can cross over to the great beyond.
But Emma Lee’s own sister refuses to believe in her special ability. In fact, the Raines sisters have barely gotten along since Charlotte Rae left the family business for the competition. After a doozy of an argument, Emma Lee is relieved to see Charlotte Rae back home to make nice. Until she realizes her usually snorting, sarcastic, family-ditching sister is a… ghost.
Charlotte Rae has no earthly idea who murdered her or why. With her heart in tatters, Emma Lee relies more than ever on her sexy beau, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross…because this time, catching a killer means the Raines sisters will have to make peace with each other first.
A Ghostly Mortality is a great cozy. It’s a little sad, a bit winding, and a lot of fun.
This is my second Ghostly Undertaking novel and won’t be my last. I really enjoyed getting to know Emma better in this book. Though, in my humble opinion, we didn’t see enough of her grandma. 🙂
The mystery was low key. It is also sad because it is Emma’s sister. So while she’s trying to find a murderer, and learning about a sister she was never close to, Emma is dealing with the grief of knowing that finding Charlotte’s killer means the end of their time together. Bittersweet.
