Emma Lee Raines sees dead people
Proprietor of the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home, Emma Lee can see, hear, and talk to ghosts of murdered folks. And when her high school nemesis is found dead, Jade Lee Peel is the same old mean girl—trying to come between Emma Lee and her hot boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, all over again.
There’s only one way for Emma Lee to be free of the trash-talking ghost—solve the murder so the former prom queen can cross over.
But the last thing Jade Lee wants is to leave the town where she had her glory days. And the more Emma Lee investigates on her own, the more complicated Miss Popularity turns out to be. Now Emma Lee will have to work extra closely with her hunky lawman to get to the twisty truth.

I love a book that makes me laugh , has quirky dialogue and characters that are funny and over the top. This book has all the elements for a great read and funny sayings that had me laughing so hard I cried. I could visualize every character by the great description the author wrote. The personality of the characters were straight out of a small town where everyone knew each other's business.

Emma is such a great character I think I would enjoy being her friend. She is witty, smart and oh yeah she sees dead people. Can you imagine being able to see a dead person and actually talk to them ? Emma didn't ask for that gift but a freak accident by a plastic Santa gave her the ability to help the dead cross over. The author has such a great sense of humor and it shines throughout the story. Emma works at the family business , Eternal Slumber Funeral Home.  She has a nickname that will have you rolling on the floor.

The big news in town is the class reunion that Emma has been working on. Everyone is starting to show up in town and one special person has just arrived. I know we all have that one person who we just did not like in school. They were popular , beautiful and let's not forget snotty and rude. Who would have thought the girl who made it big would show up in town for the class reunion?

Jade Peel has made a grand entrance into town and my do the people fawn over her. She did make a name for herself as a star and there is no way she would miss coming to the reunion. What better opportunity than to rub her celebrity status at a quaint little reunion. Emma is not a happy person when she sees Jade. Why does Emma have a grudge against Jade? I have to say that Jade was a mean spirited person but I really liked her character. She was very well written and even though she was a mean girl in high school there was a little insecure girl somewhere inside her. Well maybe it's well hidden but she sure could stir up trouble.

The story is fast paced and Emma has her hands full when someone is found dead at her grandmother's Inn. Can you guess who the dead person is? It makes for a lot of laughs as Emma tries to help solve the murder. I loved the book so much I read it without stopping till the end. There are many suspects and I was a bit surprised at who the killer was. Get ready for another great book with all the elements of surprises and plenty of laughs to please readers  looking for a fun cozy mystery . The author has once again written a story that makes you laugh, keeps you guessing and leaves you wanting to read more books from her.

I received a complimentary copy of the book from The Great Escape Book Tour. The review is my honest review.
