After being knocked out by a falling plastic Santa Claus, Emma Lee Raines realized she could see ghosts. Everyone in town thinks she's suffering from "Funeral Trauma" from working in a funeral home for too long. To get rid of the ghosts, she must solve their murders. The series is full of Southern charm and humor. Emma is trying to convince the town she's not crazy, but sometimes she likes to play along with the town's expectations. These are perfect for Carolyn Haines fans.

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.
