I really love Tonya's books. They're fun, engaging, and easy to read. She writes like people talk. Meaning she doesn't use overly complicated words or phrases that are difficult to understand. For me, that makes her books very enjoyable to read. You can concentrate on the story rather than decipher complicated imagery or whatnot.
That said, let's talk about the book. It's a mystery, so I can't tell you too much.
Jade Lee Peel was a beauty contest winner from Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky. She made it big as a reality show star, and came back to Sleepy Hollow to attend her high school reunion.
But clearly, someone wasn't happy with her. Because they killed her. Now it's up to Emma Lee Raines, owner of Eternal Slumber Funeral Home, and her hunky boyfriend, sheriff Jack Henry Ross, to find the killer.
There's something I haven't told you about Emma Lee... thanks to a bump on the head, she can see and hear ghosts. So not only does she have super cute Jack Henry to help solve the crime, she has Jade Lee herself.
This book is fun from the first page to the last. (And the killer is quite a shock.)
Each Ghostly Southern Mystery ends with Emma meeting up with a new client; the ghost from the next book. At the end of A Ghostly Reunion we meet her next client, one I am personally very sad about. It's a beloved character. So I really can't wait until February 28th when A Ghostly Mortality is released.
Anyways, this is another home run for Tonya Kappes. I really enjoyed it, and I hope you do too. :)
