Description:

Emma Lee Raines sees dead people

Proprietor of the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home, Emma Lee can see, hear, and talk to ghosts of murdered folks. And when her high school nemesis is found dead, Jade Lee Peel is the same old mean girl—trying to come between Emma Lee and her hot boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, all over again.

There’s only one way for Emma Lee to be free of the trash-talking ghost—solve the murder so the former prom queen can cross over.

But the last thing Jade Lee wants is to leave the town where she had her glory days. And the more Emma Lee investigates on her own, the more complicated Miss Popularity turns out to be. Now Emma Lee will have to work extra closely with her hunky lawman to get to the twisty truth.

My Thoughts:

In this book Emma Lee is setting up the reunion for high school which in Emma's case means facing some people in school she can live without seeing.  Jade Lee has been a thorn in Emma's side for as long as she can remember especially when she was called creepy funeral girl.  Emma's hoping this won't be the case with the dashing Jack Henry Ross on her arm.

With Fudgie a local newspaper owner on the hook for the murder of Jade Lee Peel Emma Lee finds herself helping Fudgie weed through the suspects to find out who did in the beauty queen.  While investigating she finds herself somewhat making ammends with Jade even though Jade is a ghost.  While this is going on Charlotte Emma's sister is working at a center for weddings, funerals, baby showers and more.  Which has put a bad taste in Emma's mouth and finding her fighting with her sister. 

I love this series they seem to fly by so quickly and before I know I'm at the end of the book wanting more.  I love how Emma has to deal with her 'funeral trauma' and locals wondering if Emma is insane or just an odd duck?  I love going back and seeing what everyone is up to and where they up too.  Can't wait to see what is next for the wonderful people of Sleepy Hollow!
