There's a ghost on the loose—and a fox in the henhouse

Four years ago, the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home put Chicken Teater in the ground. Now undertaker Emma Lee Raines is digging him back up. The whole scene is bad for business, especially with her granny running for mayor and a big festival setting up in town. But ever since Emma Lee started seeing ghosts, Chicken's been pestering her to figure out who killed him.

With her handsome boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, busy getting new forensics on the old corpse, Emma Lee has time to look into her first suspect. Chicken's widow may be a former Miss Kentucky, but the love of his life was another beauty queen: Lady Cluckington, his prize-winning hen. Was Mrs. Teater the jealous type? Chicken seems to think so. Something's definitely rotten in Sleepy Hollow—and Emma Lee just prays it's not her luck.

Review: Emma Lee is back and still seeing the not so dearly departed. This time she must figure out a murder that's been unknown for four years. Col. Chicken Teater has unfinished business and it's trying to figure out who killed him and why.
Emma's task is fraught with prize winning hens, former beauty queens and of course Granny.
I loved following Emma as she tries to  figure out what's going on and ends up in all kinds of trouble. YOu can't really tell what's going to happen. Even when you think you have everything figured out theres a twist or turn and surprise. Spiced with humor and crazy characters this book is fun and entertaining.
Over all I am enjoyed this series and I'm looking forward to the next one.


  1. Yeah. You loved it too! I adored both books and can't wait for the next one. I live in the south and these are so authentically southern. LOL
