4 Star #Review #Giveaway of A Ghostly Undertaking (Ghostly Southern Mysteries #1) by @tonyakappes11

A funeral, a ghost, a murder…it’s all in a day’s work for Emma Lee Raines…

Bopped on the head from a falling plastic Santa, local undertaker Emma Lee Raines is told she’s suffering from “funeral trauma.” It’s trauma all right, because the not so dearly departed keep talking to her. Take Ruthie Sue Payne--innkeeper, gossip queen, and arch-nemesis of Emma Lee’s granny—she’s adamant that she didn’t just fall down those stairs. She was pushed.

Ruthie has no idea who wanted her pushing up daisies. All she knows is that she can’t cross over until the matter is laid to eternal rest. In the land of the living, Emma Lee’s high-school crush, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, isn’t ready to rule out foul play. Granny Raines, the widow of Ruthie’s ex-husband and co-owner of the Sleepy Hollow Inn, is the prime suspect. Now Emma Lee is stuck playing detective or risk being haunted forever.

This book is right up there with the Southern Witch series by Kristen Frost.  Where that one is witchy this one is all about the ghosts and it is done so well that I finished both books one and two in a few hours!  This one drew me in to start and kept me entertained until the last page.  

This story was pretty straight forward and a very easy read.  The story flowed and wasn't confusing or bogged down by unnecessary back story or anything.  Which made it great. 

This story had a wonderful set up for the series and has a ton of color well formed characters.
