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.

 ~b’s musings ~

i must say i was eager to once more inhabit the small town of sleepy hollow, kentucky after reading tanya kappes‘ first book in this series. small town quirk is a favorite of mine, being a small town girl myself. nothing beats the intimacy and infringement of such a close knit community and i was once again able to love and hate the quirks that this sleepy town provides. and thanks to literati author services i was afforded the opportunity to once more dive into the words of tonya kappes

a ghostly grave picks up where a ghostly undertaking left off, the now unexplained demise of one chicken teater. as the name clearly draws a chuckle, it should be no surprise that tonya kappes had created another lighthearted murder mystery. unexpected hijinks and pesky ghosts once more led emma lee into a world of mishaps as she tries to unravel the subversive plot that has harangued a restless ghost to beg for her services in being able to cross over.
i don’t want to give too much of the plot away, as the twists and turns are what hold you captive until the end. this second in the series by tonya kappes was just as enjoyable and effortless read. my only complaint would be that i was hoping to delve more into the dynamics of emma lee and her sister charlotte rae, but i am hopeful that some story line in the future of this series will provide such an opportunity.
if you are looking for something light, breezy, and just the right side of intriguing then i would recommend you dive into tony kappes small town of sleepy hollow.
as always, these thoughts are my opinions based on my preferences as a reader.
