Emma Lee Raines
is an undertaker and proprietor of the Eternal Slumber Funeral
Home. As a “Betweener” she sees the ghosts of
murdered victims and helps them find peace with the help of
her boyfriend, Jack Henry Ross, Sheriff of Sleepy Hollow.
Fortunately, her mortuary has hit a slow period, which allows
Emma Lee to arrange her high school class reunion. Unfortunately,
her high school arch nemesis, Jade Lee Peel, arrives to put
Emma Lee down, just as she did in high school. Worse, the
ex-prom school queen has made it big and is being filmed for
a reality show. She even wants to feature her past relationship
with Jack as part of the reality show. Emma Lee remembers
how mean Jade was in high school, and although Emma Lee trusts
Jack, she can’t help but fear the worst.
That is, until Jade appears to her as a ghost. And Emma Lee
knows she won’t be rid of Jade until she and Jack find
Jade’s killer. But that’s not as easy as it sounds,
for Jade managed to make a lot of people angry, from high
school to the film crew and beyond. And the cast of possible
suspects just keeps growing.
This series is one of my ultimate favorites. Ms. Kappes always
manages to fill the pages with wonderful down-to-earth characters
who feel like old friends. I love Emma Lee’s sensitivity,
her kindness and caring. I also enjoy the hilarious antics
of Emma Lee’s Granny, who runs the Sleepy Hollow Inn
and has a love interest in Doc Clyde. Then there's sexy Sheriff
Ms. Kappes writes beautifully and includes enough backstory
that you don't need to read her previous releases, but once
you read A Ghostly Reunion, you'll be hooked. The ending came
as a big surprise and now I can't wait for the next release.
