TOMBS OF ENDEARMENT: A Pepper Martin Mystery - Casey Daniels

From the back of the book: Rocking and rolling in his grave....Cemetery tour guide Pepper Martin never imagined she'd get to meet rock legend Damon Curtis, the bad boy poet who made millions of teenage girls scream. After all, he kicked the bucket years before she was born. But thanks to her newfound ability to chat up the dead, Pepper's got a front row seat perfect for swooning over the still-sexy Damon's latest lyrics. He's convinced that his former bandmate Vinnie Pallucci murdered him back in'71, and he's promised Pepper she won't get any rest or peace until she helps him prove it.
But when Pepper goes behind the music, she finds Vinnie with a knife in his heart and the rest of the band members running for their lives. And if Pepper doesn't snare the killer soon, Damon's next hit from the great beyond might be her swan song.
Pepper is a go-getter. She's talking to dead people, leading tours of the cemetery, talking to dead people, helping the dead rock star....
I do enjoy this series. The titles are so 'punny' which I always love and Pepper is so cool. I wish I had her taste in clothes and ability to accessorize. But I definitely wish I had her go-get-'em 'tude. She really has to make a go of it after the rug gets pulled out from under here (see DON OF THE DEAD for the reason why) and she takes ghost bull by the horns and does what needs doing to get her spectral charges on the right side of the Light.
Highly recommendable!!!
Five rock'n'roll ghost beans......
