A Ghostly Murder by Tonya Kappes

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: September 29, 2015
Number of pages: 352
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Series: A Ghostly Southern Mystery #4

Emma Lee Raines knows there's only one cure for a bad case of murder!

I told you I was sick, reads the heastone abouve Mamie Sue Preston's grave. She was the richest woman in Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky, and also the biggest hypochondriac. Ironic, considering someone killed her-proprietor of the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home, know all this? Because Mamie Sue's ghost told her, that's how! And she's offering big bucks to find the perp.

The catch is, Mamie Sue was buried by the Raines family's archrival, Burns Funeral Home. Would the Burneses stoop to framing Emma Lee's granny? With an enterprising maid, a penny-pinching pastor, and a slimy Lexington lawyer all making a killing off Mamie Sue's estate, Emma Lee needs a teammate-like her dreamboat boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross. Because with millions at stake, snooping around is definitely bad for Emma Lee's health.

What did I think of this book?
This is another great addition to Tonya's Ghostly Southern Mystery series. As always I liked how the ghosts speak to Emma as well as her relationship with the sheriff. This series has both humor and mystery so it makes the stories just move right along for me. Just when I thought I had it all figured out the author threw me for a curve and I was wrong. Even though this book is a part of a series you can read it as a stand alone but I can almost bet you will want to go back and start with the first one.

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
