Seriously, I love family traditions. I love my family. Obviously or I wouldn't have followed in the footsteps of my parents or my granny, Zula Fae Raines Payne as the undertaker of Eternal Slumber.
This time of the year, it seems that traditions are everywhere. There is one tradition that I could do away with. High School Reunions!
Guess who is in charge of planning my high school reunion? Me! I'm not even the president of our class, but the excuse was that I live here and seem to be the only one with time on my hands.
When I got the RSVP from prom queen, Jade Lee Peel, my stomach dropped and it was like I was transported right back into high school. She was the one who came up with my nickname "creepy funeral girl." Not only was she Jack Henry's ex-girlfriend, she's also a reality star!
I'd even taken a yoga class the morning of the beginning of the reunion weekend. It was a waste of time because when I saw her and her entourage waltz into our small town, I just wanted to take her prom crown and knock her over the head with it. One problem. . .somebody got to her before I did and now she's refusing to leave me alone until I help figure out who murdered her and get her to the other side.
Emma Lee Raines sees dead people.
As if that “gift” will impress classmates at her upcoming ten-year high school reunion in Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky. 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 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.
A Ghostly Reunion is the fifth novel in the SOUTHERN GHOSTLY MYSTERY SERIES and will be released on December 27th!
