Checking out! 

Emma Lee Raines, proprietor of a small-town Kentucky funeral home, Eternal Slumber, is a “Betweener,” helps ghosts stuck between here and the ever-after— only murdered ghosts. After Emma Lee solves who murdered them, only then can they cross over to the Great Beyond, Big Guy In The Sky. 
Emma Lee is up against a cold case that happened before she’d even gotten her “Betweener” gift. Not only is the ghost of eight-year-old Betsy Lynn Brady, but Mr. Whiskers Betsy’s cat needs to cross the Rainbow Bridge. 
Betsy Lynn Brady has no idea who murdered her or why. With her heart in shambles, Emma Lee begs her sexy beau, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross to reopen the cold case because Betsy’s head is always stuck in a book and can’t remember exactly what happened to her. 

Emma Lee learns real fast that someone doesn’t want her to snoop around the cold case. Can she help Betsy cross over and get Mr. Whiskers cross the Rainbow Bridge before someone helps Emma Lee check out from the living?

My Thoughts:

This book follows Emma Lee who owns the small town funeral home Eternal Slumber.  Not long after the death of her sister Charlotte she has been visited by a cat Mr. Whiskers and a little girl.  She finds herself having difficulty identifying who the girl as and the girl ghost can't tell her much at all.

The little girl is connected to another ghost who is involved in Betsy Lynn Brady's death was it her mother or her soon to be step-father?  Emma Lee also finds out that Jack Henry Ross is about to take a temporary job away from Emma Lee and Emma can't decide if they will survive this?  Emma is also still dealing with the death of her sister and finding her way without her!

This book was full of so much stuff going on. Emma making new friends and spending time with girls while Jack Henry is away.  She also solves a couple of cases of her clients that need to cross over and she finds herself helping her grandmother plan her wedding to Doc Clyde.  I really can't wait to see what awaits Emma Lee next!
