When it comes to the Whithaven Funeral Home, they’re just dying to get in…
When newly widowed Janey Whithaven receives a call to retrieve the body of Montpier’s most recently departed, she’s caught off guard. Her husband isn’t even cold in in his grave. But as the only funeral home left in this part of the Lake of the Ozarks, she really doesn’t have a choice. Janey thought she’d have time to grieve and figure out what to do next with the business. She never imagined being asked to step right into her darling Norm’s loafers only a week after his death.
Compounding her grief – and sudden promotion to head mortician – Janey is shocked to discover her newest client is none other than Victoria Jones, her nemesis from her beauty school days. It doesn’t take long before Janey learns that maybe Victoria’s death wasn’t the accident the coroner deemed it. Since this knowledge comes about when Victoria’s ghost appears at the foot of the embalming table, it’s clear something else is going on in Montpier. And that something includes murder.
Unwilling to ignore a miscarriage of justice even for Victoria, Janey is also unable to tell anyone she’s now seeing – and talking to ghosts. The only answer is to embark on her own investigation, and hope she doesn’t end up as the next client in Whithaven funeral home. Nothing would please Janey more than to see Victoria laid to rest once and for all. Unless she uncovers the truth of Victoria’s death, neither of them will ever be at peace.
Janey never asked for this. She sure isn’t ready for it. But as Norm used to say… Death doesn’t care whether you’ve done your hair.
A paranormal women’s fiction series about being fabulous over forty, because even morticians deserve a magical midlife.
