Southern Charm mixed with ghost and murder equals a good mystery
A Ghostly Undertaking by Tonya Kappes is a 5 Star cozy mystery with a ghostly twist.
Emma Lee with her sister runs the family Funeral Home but she didn't expect to be able to see ghosts. When Ruthie dies and Emma finds herself face to face with Ruthie's ghost at her veiwing things get interesting. Ruthie tells Emma she has to help her find out who killed her that her death was not an accident. After the initial shock of being able to see and talk to a ghost Emma gets down to snooping to find out who did Ruthie in and has to find out fast before her Granny is blamed. Will she find the answers before Granny is arrested and what is Granny hiding? Will she solve the mystery before anyone else is hurt? Can she help Ruthie so she can cross over and all before the whole town thinks she is crazy?
I loved this book. I love the small southern town dynamics and charm. Emma Lee is just spunky enough to be able to handle the town gossip, yet you get drawn in to feeling how shy she is when the good looking Sheriff is around. This book has all the right elements a good mystery with a few surprises, good characters that you can relate to, I mean who hasn't known a gossip or a Granny that rules the roost. Throw in a spunky somewhat bossy ghost and you have the makings of a good book that you can't put down. It is funny, with a little romance and a mystery that will make you go I didn't see that one coming. I highly recommend this book and series. Tonya Kappes has a way to make you feel right at home in Sleepy Hollow so pull up a chair and sit a spell while you get to know the people of Sleepy Hollow and help Emma Lee and Ruthie solve this mystery.
