Emma Lee Raines sees dead people.

Proprietor of the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home, Emma Lee can see, hear, and talk to ghosts of murdered folks. And when her high school nemesis is found dead, Jade Lee Peel is the same old mean girl—trying to come between Emma Lee and her hot boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, all over again.


There’s only one way for Emma Lee to be free of the trash-talking ghost—solve the murder so the former prom queen can cross over.

But the last thing Jade Lee wants is to leave the town where she had her glory days. And the more Emma Lee investigates on her own, the more complicated Miss Popularity turns out to be. Now Emma Lee will have to work extra closely with her hunky lawman to get to the twisty truth.

Q: Emma, thanks for stopping by Island Confidential. Why don’t you tell our readers a little bit about yourself–maybe something we might not guess?

Emma Lee Raines: I’m an undertaker. Yep. I’m the one who comes and gets you when your time has expired. I grew up in the Sleepy Hollow Funeral Home and due to an unfortunate event, I’m able to communicate with dead people, mainly ones who’ve been murdered! A little secret…I also see animals that are in the ever after.

Q: Who’s the character you get along with the best?

ELR: I definitely get along best with my boyfriend Jack Henry who also happens to be the Sleepy Hollow sheriff. He is the only person who knows that I see the dead people and I do get to help out in solving the murders. It’s kinda fun.

Q: Which other character do you have a conflict with?  

ELR: Lordy. The ghosts who haunt me can be a little demanding. They don’t leave me alone, especially when I want to go on a date with Jack.

Q: Just between you and me: What do you really think of your author?

ELR: She’s pretty fun. Sometimes she puts me in some really sticky situations and I don’t think I’m ever going to get out of them, but I do.

Q: What’s next for you?

ELR: I’m beyond excited that the next book in my story, A GHOSTLY MORTALITY , will be released in February 2017. That’s pretty cool!
