A Ghostly Demise/A Ghostly Murder
by Tonya Kappes
Tonya wows us yet again with the antics of Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky!
Tonya Kappes puts the fun into each novel no matter how tense things may seem. I love her use of “Southernisms” and relational manipulations. When all the evidence points to one conclusion, be prepared to finally hear a few secrets.
I had such fun following Emma Lee around as she stuck her nose in everyone’s business, sniffing out clues.
I love this series so much it’s full of everything southern charm, humor, mystery and much more.
I was immediately drawn into the story; it kept me engaged. The premise of the series is intriguing, a funeral director who is able to see the ghosts of dead people, usually those who were murdered.

It is a cozy mystery really addictive, full of fun and a total page tuner. I was engrossed from the first chapter.
I have to say that the Ghostly Southern Mysteries is turning out to be a favorite cozy series. Not only is it full of Kentucky charm (GO BIG BLUE!), but the characters are colorful and memorable, the action is well paced and the mystery is delicious!
This is well written and humorous and while it is part of a series, it could also be a stand-alone.

This is a fun ghostly cozy. There is a fun quirky cast of characters. Lots of drama, mystery, ghosts and politics.

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.

Emma Lee raines knows there’s only one cure for a bad case of murder
I told you I was sick, reads the headstone above Mamie Sue Preston’s grave. She was the richest woman in Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky, and also the biggest hypochondriac. Ironic, considering someone killed her—and covered it up perfectly. And how does Emma Lee, 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 Burnses 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.
