From the publisher—

That ghost sure looks . . . familiar

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 first.

Why am I waiting so eagerly? I’ve just become aware of this series fairly recently (apparently I’ve been living under a sizeable rock) and it immediately made me think of the Harper Connelly series by Charlaine Harris. I loved those books that featured a woman who finds dead people and was disappointed that there were only four volumes. So now along comes a series with a protagonist who actually solves murders for the ghostly victims. I’m just sorry it took me so long to “discover” Emma Lee Raines but, then again, it does mean I have 5 earlier books to binge on 😉
