Lee Raines and her sister, Charlotte, inherited Eternal Rest,
a funeral home, from their parents and ran it together until
Charlotte left to work at Hargrove’s Funeral Homes.
Emma Lee visits her to have Charlotte sign legal papers, but
Charlotte deftly avoids signing the papers.
Emma Lee, a “Betweener,” sees ghosts who can’t
find rest until she discovers who killed them. As the proprietor
of Eternal Slumber, ghosts naturally tend to flock to her.
When Emma Lee later sees Charlotte, but others can’t,
she realizes that Charlotte has been murdered. Since Charlotte
has no memory of the event, Emma Lee copes with her despair
and loss as she tries to discover who murdered her sister.
Emma Lee’s beau, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, knows of Emma
Lee’s abilities and cautions her to let him handle the
investigation. He knows she often meddles where she shouldn’t
and places herself in danger, but this case is too close to
home for Emma Lee to ignore, especially with Charlotte constantly
by her side.
Once again, Tonya Kappes has written an enjoyable paranormal
full of charm, intriguing characters and a solid mystery that
kept me hooked to the very last page. The relationship between
Emma Lee and Jack Henry is hot, and Emma Lee’s grandmother
is truly a funny character. The real charm of this latest
release, however, is the growing bond that develops between
Emma Lee and Charlotte as they realize the love they will
miss when Emma Lee discovers who killed Charlotte.
Tonya Kappes has once again brought us the southern charm
of Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky, a small town filled with dark
secrets, southern hospitality and tingling romance. A
Ghostly Mortality is entertaining and chock-full with
twists and turns, with wonderful characters and a plot that
brought a few tears along with the laughs. I loved it!
