From the back of the book: Pepper Martin, heiress-turned-cemetery-tour-guide, has her hands full with work, two hotties, and the ghosts of who won't let her rest----or work, or shop---in peace....
The last thing Pepper wants during her Chicago business trip is more ghosts seeking her help, as they've been doing ever since she hit her head on a tombstone. Then again, being bored stiff during a seminar might actually be worse than being with bored stiffs.
The specter of Madeline---a young woman in a lab coat---wants Pepper's help. Before she died, Madeline worked with Dan Callahan, the sexy, mysterious doctor who once saved Pepper's life. According to Madeline, Dan's life is in danger. But, little does Pepper know, there's more to the story, including a devious doctor---and an obsessive, crazy love.....
Pepper Martin is one of my favorite characters in a book. I can read the books in any order and laugh and empathize with Pepper as she goes through her travails as newly not-rich and with her ability to talk with the dead.
Casey had me at DON OF THE DEAD, the first in the series. Excellent titles and a superb premise.
Pepper has her hands full in this one. She gets to go on a business trip to Chicago for Garden View, the cemetery she works in. She even gets to give a speech, "Reactions to the Resurrectionists in the Planning and Design of the Urban Cemetery". You know Pepper's thrilled as all get out.
Pepper also has a new ghost on her hands and neither living or dead is happy about it. Madeline is as snooty in ghostliness as she must have been alive and Pepper can't stand her, but knows the only way to get rid of her is to help her move along into that light.
It's not an easy trip, but to tell more is to give away the book's story.
I can say I loved this one immensely. Perfectly funny and well told.
Five perfectly funny beans.....
