That ghost sure looks . . . familiarOnly 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.
My ThoughtsCharlotte Rae and Emma Lee Raines, along with a whole host of quirky and mostly mortal characters from the town of Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky are back.
And so, it appears is that seemingly never ending feud between the two siblings.
But there's nothing like a death in the family to put an end to sisterly bickering. Particularly when one of the touchy twosome is dead, and the other is the only person who can see her.
A very notable about face from her usual role as the snarky, know-it-all...who always seems to know too much own good.
The one thing she doesn't know however. The identity of her murderer.
But that just happens to be the one thing that her little sister is determined to find out.
Tanya Kappes loads this sixth volume of her charming cozy series with all the charm and wit that those having read even a single book come to love.
This sixth book resumes the story right on the heels of its predecessor. But is perfectly fine if read as a stand alone.
Because Charlotte is such a well developed character, much less set-up is required for readers to grasp the enormity of her loss. Thus making the reader's investment in the story all the greater. We also find out along the way, that little Miss Perfection may not be as perfect as she would have us believe.
This is a wonderfully twisty tale of sisters, suspense, the supernatural, and second chances. With a Southern sized helping of murder...of course.
