The prodigal father returns—but this ghost is no holy spirit

When she runs into her friend's deadbeat dad at the local deli, undertaker Emma Lee Raines can't wait to tell Mary Anna Hardy that he's back in Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky, after five long years. Cephus Hardy may have been the town drunk, but he didn't disappear on an epic bender like everyone thought: He was murdered. And he's heard that Emma Lee's been helping lost souls move on to that great big party in the sky.

Why do ghosts always bother Emma Lee at the worst times? Her granny's mayoral campaign is in high gear, a carnival is taking over the town square, and her hunky boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, is stuck wrestling runaway goats. Besides, Cephus has no clue whodunit…unless it was one of Mrs. Hardy's not-so-secret admirers. All roads lead Emma Lee to that carnival—and a killer who isn't clowning around.

What did I think of this book:
I enjoyed this book just as much as I did the first too. I like the Southern sass of Emma Lee. In my opinion you will need to read these books in order so you don't miss out on anything. This book just keeps me wanting craving for more. The author's writing style is enjoyable and flows very well. Again this is another haunted book which makes the book that much more enjoyable to me. There are plenty of gossips in this story and that makes it that much more interesting in trying to find out whodunit. It was exciting to go back and "visit" with old friends. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

About the author:
I am the author of twenty-six novels placed in and around small towns in Kentucky and thanking God for my chance to speak. Some have a little mystery and some have a little romance, but all have southern charm. When I'm not writing, I'm reading or gardening or cooking. Love to drink coffee, shoot the breeze with people and most of all, be with my husband and four boys - not always necessarily in that order. My most recent, A GHOSTLY DEMISE (the third book in the Ghostly Southern Mystery series with William Morrow) will be out on August 25th. Love to have company so come visit at or on Facebook. And by the way, serious huge hugs and thanks for everything - your kind words, posts and emails. Writing saves me, but without your support it wouldn't mean as much. xxoo Tonya
