A Ghostly Suspect (Ghostly Southern Mysteries 8 ) by Tonya Kappes [early review]

Hello to all!!!

For the first sunny and dry day of this month ( it was really time even if the reprieve is extra short with new storms tomorrow) i decided to share with you my opinion on another book that releases this week so you can preorder or jump on it as soon as it's available.

It's book 8 in a series i really enjoy from Tonya Kappes: the Ghosthly Southern Mysteries series with Emma Lee the unlucky Betweener. It's really a great time for the release because it's the kind of great funny cozy mystery we enjoy taking with us on vacation this one is no exception.

Happy reading

Description from goodreads/amazon :

 A funeral, a ghost, a murder . . . It's all in a day's work for Emma Lee Raines . . .
especially when the ghost turns out to be someone very dear to her heart. Debbie Dually, psychic and friend who has guided Emma Lee since the she was bopped on the head from a falling plastic Santa, local undertaker Emma Lee Raines is told she's suffering from “funeral trauma.”

Debbie Dually is the one who informed Emma Lee that she wasn't crazy, she was a Betweener, someone who can communicate with ghosts with the not-so-dearly departed. In fact, she told Emma Lee how she was the only one that could help solve their murder to help them rest in eternal peace.

This time Debbie Dually finds herself needing Emma's help. This means solving her own murder.
Emma goes deep undercover as a fake psychic in order to see into the past and help Debbie cross over. Emma Lee doesn't realize this opens up a whole can of new Betweener clients that refuse to leave her alone.

When Emma Lee is tagged as the number one suspect in Debbie Dually's death, her handsome state trooper boyfriend, Jack Henry, has no choice but to come back to Whispering Falls and get to the bottom of what is going on before it's too late and Emma Lee goes to the state pen for a very long time.

My opinion:
          Poor Emma, being a betweener sure is never easy and it does impact a life a lot...this time it's her "mentor" who is found dead and since they were seen together just before Emma is the suspect. Thankfully she still has support in Granny ( using her charms to get her an lawyer), Jack henry, her lover,  and Mazie her new "assistant".

This book is a great addition top the series but could easily be read as stand alone too  which makes it just even better. As each time we have a lot of humour in it, lot of investigation and action and just the right dose of romance to make it a page turner we devour in one sitting. The twists were really well done to keep us second guessing culprits.

I really loved this book but i admit some of Debbie 's predictions made me quite worried and impatient for next book . It's no clihhanger , this investigation is solved but we just get a good hint about some question and possible events we just want more.

So once again a perfect cozy mystery with a great southern setting not to be missed!!

Score:  4,5/5
