A Ghostly Grave - Tonya Kappes


There's a ghost on the loose—and a fox in the henhouse
Four years ago, the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home put Chicken Teater in the ground. Now undertaker Emma Lee Raines is digging him back up. The whole scene is bad for business, especially with her granny running for mayor and a big festival setting up in town. But ever since Emma Lee started seeing ghosts, Chicken's been pestering her to figure out who killed him.

 With her handsome boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, busy getting new forensics on the old corpse, Emma Lee has time to look into her first suspect. Chicken's widow may be a former Miss Kentucky, but the love of his life was another beauty queen: Lady Cluckington, his prize-winning hen. Was Mrs. Teater the jealous type? Chicken seems to think so. Something's definitely rotten in Sleepy Hollow—and Emma Lee just prays it's not her luck.

Once again Tonya Kappes has knocked it out of the park.  From the beginning of the story I was swept up in Emma Lee and Chicken's Adventure.  Emma Lee will do anything to solve her mystery and she keeps me laughing as she does it.  The story is filled with fun quirky characters that make you laugh, cry and want to bless their hearts.  I can't wait to see more interaction between Emma Lee and Jack Henry.  The spark between the two is amazing.   Her sister Charlotte aggravates me to no end.  She sees things one dimensional and only her way or the highway.  Granny is a force herself.  She's always up to something and she cracks me up.  A Ghostly Grave is the perfect continuation in the Ghostly Soutnern Mystery Series.  The story is the perfect mix of mystery and humor with a touch of romance.
