Synopsis
A funeral, a ghost, a murder . . . It’s all in a day’s work for emma lee raines . . .
Bopped on the head from a falling plastic Santa, local undertaker Emma Lee Raines is told she’s suffering from “funeral trauma.” It’s trauma all right, because the not-so-dearly departed keep talking to her. Take Ruthie Sue Payne—innkeeper, gossip queen, and arch-nemesis of Emma Lee’s granny—she’s adamant that she didn’t just fall down those stairs. She was pushed.
Ruthie has no idea who wanted her pushing up daisies. All she knows is that she can’t cross over until the matter is laid to eternal rest. In the land of the living, Emma Lee’s high-school crush, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, isn’t ready to rule out foul play. Granny Raines, the widow of Ruthie’s ex-husband and co-owner of the Sleepy Hollow Inn, is the prime suspect. Now Emma Lee is stuck playing detective or risk being haunted forever.

My review:

Tonya Kappes is a fabulous story teller and she has done it again with A Ghostly undertaking. A Cast of characters and a story so well written you will think you are right there in the midst of all the happenings. This charming whodunit will bring you hours of fun reading. You will be in captivated from the start and will eagerly be waiting the next book to find out what Emma and the gang will get into next.  I am excited for the next one in this series.


Guest Post:
Do you believe in ghosts?
“I see dead people,” that is what Emma Lee Raines, my character in my new series, Ghostly Southern Mystery Series would say if you asked her. If you were to ask me, I’d say, “I’ve had my own ghostly encounter, but I have never seen a ghost.”
Recently, I have been asked if I have ever had any paranormal experience and no matter how crazy I sound, I would have to answer yes.


In fact, my own ghostly encounter is the inspiration behind A GHOSTLY UNDERTAKING.


In the early 90’s I purchased a home that was a little over a hundred years old. That was when things started going bump in the night.


The electronics and water faucets would turn on around three a.m. and items like my hairdryer, clothing irons, and cameras began to disappear. When I would replace those items, the missing ones would show up in my kitchen cabinets, sitting right on top of my plates.


I’m not sure, but my encounter gave me the idea of my new mystery series, A Ghostly Southern Mystery where clients that were murdered haunt undertaker, Emma Lee Raines.


In A Ghostly Undertaking, Emma Lee takes matters into her own hands to figure out who killed Ruthie Sue Payne in order to get Ruthie to the other side, or risk being haunted forever. Unfortunately, when Emma’s granny, Zula Fae, becomes the prime suspect, Emma Lee is more determined than ever to solve Ruthie’s murder.
I hope you find yourself giggling out loud while trying to figure out who killed Ruthie in A Ghostly Undertaking.


Be sure to preorder A Ghostly Grave, the second mystery in A Ghostly Southern Mystery Series releasing on March 31st where there is a ghost on the loose and a fox in the henhouse. I’m so excited for this one!
From former self-published superstar and USA Today bestseller Tonya Kappes comes a brand new, hilarious paranormal series featuring Emma Lee Raines, a funeral home director who can suddenly see dead people.
