Only a handful of people know that Emma Lee Raines, proprietor of a small-town Kentucky funeral home, is a “Betweener.” She helps ghosts stuck between here and the ever-after—murdered ghosts. Once Emma Lee gets them justice they can cross over to the great beyond.
But Emma Lee’s own sister refuses to believe in her special ability. In fact, the Raines sisters have barely gotten along since Charlotte Rae left the family business for the competition. After a doozy of an argument, Emma Lee is relieved to see Charlotte Rae back home to make nice. Until she realizes her usually snorting, sarcastic, family-ditching sister is a . . . ghost.
Charlotte Rae has no earthly idea who murdered her or why. With her heart in tatters, Emma Lee relies more than ever on her sexy beau, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross…because this time, catching a killer means the Raines sisters will have to make peace with each other firs

“Y’all a new client here at Hardgrove’s?” The security guard gave me and Granny the once-over after he moseyed up to us.
“No.” I pointed to our car, a hearse, which should’ve been a pretty good indicator to him that we were in the same business. “I’m Charlotte’s sister and this here is our granny. We are from Sleepy Hollow.”
“Burns?” he questioned.
“Why, I never,” Granny gasped and glared. “Do we look like we come from them good-for-nothin’ . . .”
“Eternal Slumber,” I chirped up and cut Granny off. “Have a nice day. Get into the car, Granny.” My brows lifted.
“I knew I should’ve drove the ’ped.” Granny referred to the moped she drove around town. She huffed, got in the car and slammed the door.
I looked at the security guard and rolled my eyes so hard that I thought I hurt myself.
“Oh my stars.” Granny buckled up. “That was a sight for sore eyes.”
I started the engine and pretended to adjust the rearview mirror when I was really looking back at Charlotte. It was good southern manners to stand outside and wave bye as someone pulled off in their car, but bad luck to watch them completely drive off. When we were almost out of sight, Charlotte stomped her feet and hurried back into Hardgrove’s.
“I’m a little disappointed in how she reacted to that nasty woman.” Granny sat poised with her hands in her lap. “She should’ve told her that there were a few funerals being held and the flowers would be removed way before the wedding.” Granny lifted her hand and nervously tapped her finger on the door handle. “Who on earth ever heard of opening a place like that?”
“Really?” I gripped the wheel, turning on the road that took us right back home to Sleepy Hollow where we belonged. “The fact that she hasn’t signed the paperwork should be what you can’t believe. I mean, she’s working illegally for Gina Marie.”
“Pish-posh.” Granny brushed me off. “She’s not happy there. I can see it in her eyes. It’s just a matter of time before she comes back to Eternal Slumber. Mark my words, that is why she hasn’t signed those papers.”
And that was my fear.

Continuing on where the previous book in this series left off, Emma Lee finds her ability to talk to the dead hits too close to home.
This time her "Betweener" client is her sister, Charlotte Rae.

Charlotte Rae had left the family funeral home to go work for the competition.
She never believed in Emma Lee's "ability" until she became a Betweener herself.
Not only is this a well written mystery but also an exciting, dangerous adventure.
Will Emma Lee be joining her sister on the other side?

With humor as well as compassion, we read about Granny's reaction to losing a granddaughter.
In the previous novel, Emma Lee learned more about her class mate, Jade, after her murder.
This time, the sisters find out they could have made better use of their years together.

You can read this as a stand alone but you will enjoy each book in this series.
I appreciate watching the characters grow and their relationships develop.
